You will work closely with Intelligence Community (IC), national-level customers, and military services to capture and document the requirements for the next generation systems. The effort requires participation in numerous meetings, working groups, and integrated product teams, product reviews, and status meetings to monitor the systems engineering plans, development, and deployment of space and ground processing systems. You will work closely with government Systems Engineers to ensure customer plans are effectively aligned with those developed by other IC engineers. The goal is seamless integration across both enterprises.

 

You will be a key member of the team charged with the production of solid documentation of the customers’ requirements and a mapping of where, when and how those requirements will be satisfied by capabilities to be deployed across the extended IC enterprise as the next generation collection and processing systems are fielded.
