Systems Engineer 3 - Rome, NY




Rome, NY 13440

Exciting opportunity for a Systems Engineer who enjoys conducting experiments and wants to work with cutting edge technology to support our national security. This Systems Engineer position is located at Northrop Grumman Mission Systems in Rome, NY and will work in a research environment. The Systems Engineer will conduct software systems analysis, system design and system development activities in support of the Data to Decision (D2D) campaign. The D2D program provides empirically-derived data to enable decision-making, strategy formulation, and organizational learning through a series of experiments. D2D integrates existing and future Air, Space & Cyber programs for the purpose of experimentation. These experiments promote data sharing and workflow among software that would not normally exchange information, nor have common data formats. The Systems Engineer will help overcome software integration challenges which include: the hindrance of rapid innovation due to lack of a 'standard'; the inability to rapidly pull in existing systems/data; the undefined vision for leveraging future capabilities; and programs that aren't capable of communicating with other systems/applications. The end goal is integrated, multi-domain information flow to and from the leading edge. Roles & Responsibilities include, but aren't limited to:
* Work as part of a team to design, develop, implement, and transition capabilities required by the client to meet their operational requirements.
* Perform system engineering and integration within an agile development process.
* Perform design synthesis and system performance assessment against multi-disciplinary (air, cyber, space) problems.
* Provide engineering support to experiment in planning, preparation, execution and assessment.
* System analysis activities to include requirements analysis, gap analysis, analysis of alternatives
* Development of high-level and detailed system design artifacts in accordance with DoD architecture framework
* Development of new research area recommendations to introduce solutions, products, services and best practices to fit customer needs. Travel of 5%-10% may be required. This position is contingent upon customer funding. RMNYMSTR
