Documenting and implementing Enterprise test plans and procedures necessary to assess NGA enterprise and system-level implementations and mission effectiveness against functional and performance requirements.
Work independently and within teams where appropriate. Develop schedule management and analysis skills. Learn through on-the-job training from peers and senior team members. Contribute skill and knowledge base to others.
The Systems Engineering & Integration for the National Systems for Geospatial-Intelligence program delivers full life-cycle systems integration and engineering services to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and is chartered to provide technical leadership for many of NGA's highest priorities.
The WFS SE will be a key contributor enabling NGA's innovative all source capabilities engineering and technology insertion process, from mission needs identification through rapid solutions implementation.
The innovation engineering team is responsible for working with mission stakeholders to understand their needs, as well as their obstacles to achieving their goals. Translate and post problems to elicit innovative solutions from industry and other geoint community stakeholders, communicating to industry through outreach.
Development of fit for purpose and hybrid views of data that demonstate linkages and dependancies across capabilities, budget, systems, services, requirements as required, to ensure alignment with the geoint enterprise architecture, nga resource priorities, the agency's strategic vision and mission critical capabilities.
Coordinate with and document nga tasking, workflow and exploitation and/or dissemination segment's software/hardware design, implementation and test schedule to ensure alignment with agreed to nsg enterprise implementation, integration, verification and validation and transition plans and schedules.
This systems engineer (se) will lead external site architecture transition (esat) team technical project/tasks, and must have excellent se&i, project engineering, and written and verbal communications skills, and be adept at working in a highly dynamic environment, composed of multiple nga initiatives, associated phased developments, and programmatic dependencies.
Generate project objectives based on mission needs, and establish and manage project, plans, schedules, and enterprise coordination. Translate high level program strategies into systems requirements and work with development contractors to ensure work is consistent with customer strategies.
Serve as the source analyst/tradecraft/collection modeling sme, providing dedicated support to the ntm-l pmo and source directorate, to engineer and drive technology-to-tradecraft-to operations advancement for new data source.
Conduct nsg enterprise and system level transition readiness reviews; confidence reviews and operational readiness reviews (orr). Document and conduct joint transition recommendations for declaration of initial (ioc) and full operational capabilities (foc).
Lead, direct, and perform technical systems analysis of alternatives (aoa) and recommendations on services implementation and operations. Assess current and future technology, and ensures the project captures innovative tradecraft, lessons learned, and best practices.
Demonstrate the ability to lead efforts to capture users' needs by performing requirements elicitation directly with stakeholders, drafting conops, and documenting requirements to implement changes to the nga and nsg operational baselines
