CACI is seeking a Modeling/Simulation Engineer who will aid in Establishing an Air Force Simulator Common Architecture Requirements and Standards (SCARS) “presence” within the simulation community through regular interactions with the other Uniformed Services, industry, and academia. Coordinate on AFRL activities such as Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) projects to advance SCARS technologies through the AFMS3 2.0 program at WPAFB, OH.
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:
Provide SCARS technical and operational cybersecurity support identifying/recommending a migration path for simulator functionality from a decentralized to a centralized state that accommodates all common functionality assuming a stateless simulator.
Directly interact with Government and simulator vendors as they respond to contractual direction to deliver Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DoDAF) views. Using those responses to 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.
Responsible for providing Market Research assessments, industry analysis including research trends to inform the government team, the acquisition strategies, and potential standards and technologies to be incorporated into simulators
Coordinate SCARS initiatives within the simulation and Open Architecture industries.
Organize and conduct working groups, collaboration activities, and potential industry engagements to communicate, promote, and evolve SCARS initiatives and concepts.
Engage with the simulation and security industries.
You’ll Bring These Qualifications:
Active Secret security clearance.
BA/BS degree and up to 3 years experience. If a candidate has no BA/BS degree an additional 4 years experience can be substituted for a total of 4 years experience.
