Infoscitex (IST), a DCS company, has an opportunity for an Operations Research Analyst to help support high visibility Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis (MS&A) efforts in our St. Louis office. You would join a team developing software for the Advanced Framework for Simulation, Integration, and Modeling (AFSIM). AFSIM is a U.S. Air Force simulation environment for engagement- and mission-level analysis by military operations research analysts to evaluate combat effectiveness of advanced weapon system concepts.

AFSIM is a Monte Carlo simulation tool which may be run either constructively to generate analytic results, or in real time to support Operator in the Loop (OITL) Experimentation and Wargaming needs. AFSIM is now becoming accepted as a standard operations analysis tool across DoD and industry.

Our work here focuses on conducting capability assessments for emerging aerospace technologies and ensuring related tools and methodologies are suitable for DoD Decision Support Systems. This opportunity supports aerospace technologies research and provides a dynamic work environment having opportunities to work with state of the art simulation technologies, simulation integration experts, and military Subject Matter Experts (SME).
