Position Overview

Candidate will support the PM Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Modeling & Simulation and Emulation activities in support of tactical network and systems providing secure and reliable data, voice and video communications in a tactical environment. Engineers embedded in the ETB lab provide technical expertise with an emphasis on the following areas of responsibility: system integration, system testing, data analysis, and IT infrastructure and M&S management.

System integration: Work with fellow members of the PM WIN-T Inc 3 team to integrate new network components (e.g., virtual Firewall, TGEN traffic stimulator, TACLANE, networked applications, Lower-tier Tactical Internet, etc.) into the WIN-T Emulation Testbed at the Communications Systems Development Center (CSDC).

System testing: Conduct system-level testing of the WIN-T Emulation Testbed with the objective of evaluating that the overall performance of the network is either improved or not negatively impacted by the integration of additional network components.

Technical documentation: Write tutorials on how to perform a specific task (e.g., how to install/configure virtual Firewalls; how to upgrade/configure TACLANE, etc.). Maintain a central depository of technical documentation in a shared drive that can be accessed by other members of the PM WIN-T.

Daily test logging. Keep track of daily logging of test runs during a testing event. Logging information includes, but is not limited to, start/end end time of test run, system configurations, stimulated traffic profile, database generated, anomalies observed during test run, etc. Activity logging helps provide backward traceability while performing data analysis.
