Cybersecurity/Cloud Engineer

Req #: 243603
Location: Wright Patterson Afb, OH US
Job Category: Engineering
Minimum Clearance Required: Secret

Job Description

CACI is seeking a Cybersecurity/Cloud Engineer to improve the cybersecurity of 148 Flight and Crew Mission Simulators throughout the USAF and develop strategies for migrating these mission simulators to a cloud computing environment. This position is based out of WPAFB, OH on the newly awarded, five-year Air Force Mission Simulation Support Services (AFMS3) contracts supporting the AF Agency for Modeling and Simulation. 

AFAMS is the premier agency responsible for implementation, integration, and development of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) and training and analysis standards that support the US Air Force (USAF), Department of Defense (DoD), and mission partners requiring these capabilities to support the Warfighter in full-spectrum operations. In the current resource constrained environment, demand for M&S rises with the continuously evolving need for operational readiness and mission preparedness across the USAF, DoD, and with coalition partners. AFAMS focuses on providing innovative M&S services as the key to meeting this demand.

What You’ll Get to Do:

  • Develop and recommend a migration path for mission simulators from a distributed to a centralized, cloud-based architecture that accommodates all common simulator functionality.

  • Assess current cloud technologies and perform centralized cloud datacenter (CCD) analyses.

  • Assess current local cloud datacenter (LCD) technologies and operational cybersecurity support.

  • Define and recommend a CCD hardware architecture infrastructure that is based on simulator unique requirements (e.g., security considerations, storage of large, correlated data sets). The CCD architecture will: (1) be scalable and be able to support multiple security domain operations, (2) include an enterprise repository for data and software for the SCARS program.

  • Define a recommended hardware architecture infrastructure based on the local real/near-real time simulator unique requirements, (e.g., security considerations, storage of large, correlated data sets). The LCD architecture will be scalable and be able to support multiple security domain operations.

  • Work with the  Air Force and commercial simulator providers as they respond to contractual direction to deliver Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DoDAF) views.

  • Analyze, model, characterize, and document current training systems addressing design approach, networks and interfaces, proprietary applications, and all other information that will support adaptation to a standard digitally modeled architecture.

  • Gather the architectural data to the sub-system level of all current platforms to develop and expand the system model of the simulator community, the interfacing networks, and all other such data as necessary to construct a complete and accurate as-is WNS training system environment, using model-based system engineering (MBSE) practices.

  • Provide Market Research assessments, industry analysis including research trends in order to inform the government team, the acquisition strategies, and potential standards and technologies to be incorporated into simulators.

You’ll Bring These Qualifications:

  • Active Secret security clearance.
  • Senior - Bachelors and nine (9) years or more experience; Masters and seven (7) years or more experience ; PhD or JD and four (4) years or more experience
