Missile Defense Discrimination Engineer/Analyst - 4

Company The Boeing Company Job ID 1700019810 Date posted 11/06/2017
Location Huntsville Alabama United States
Job Description


  • The National Team provides systems engineering solutions to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for the development and evolution of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS).  The BMDS is an integrated, layered architecture that provides multiple opportunities to destroy missiles and their warheads before they can reach their targets. The Integrated Discrimination Team (IDT) is a product team that performs systems analyses of the existing BMDS architecture in conjunction with new technologies and concepts to be considered for future BMDS architectures.  The IDT performs analyses using various fidelity models and simulations to predict performance of current and future sensors, weapons, countermeasures, and counter-countermeasures.  In addition, IDT evaluates various scenarios and architectures to optimize overall system performance in a framework giving insight into performance improvements that may be employed by MDA.  IDT works closely with the MDA, FFRDCs, along with various contractors and suppliers to bring about conceptual improvements, models & simulations to help define system improvements, new requirements, and perform architecture trade studies to help assess performance benefits of future systems.  Besides these areas of focus, we also are building models to assess impacts to electronic attack and employment of electronic protections. 


  • The individual will be responsible for performing analysis of current and future BMDS architectures using existing modeling and simulation (M&S) tools or M&S tools created or modified by the candidate.  The individual will be part of a team performing electronic attack evaluation, developing and assessing electronic protection schemes for BMDS and developing related requirements for portions of the BMDS.  


Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians. Skilled scientists and thinkers. Bold innovators and dreamers. Join us, and you can build something better for yourself, for our customers and for the world.
