General Dynamics Electric Boat is the world’s foremost designer and builder of nuclear submarines, the most complex machines made by man. The company’s industry leadership extends back over a century to 1899 when it produced the U.S. Navy's first commissioned undersea warship. Today, Electric Boat prides itself on being the premier shipbuilding company in the industry. We develop and apply state of the art technology to the design and construction of nuclear powered submarines. With a team of highly skilled and dedicated employees, we have successfully taken submarine technology to a new level.

The Missile Defense Agency Engineering Team – Industry (MET-I), also called the National Team, provides systems engineering solutions to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for the development and evolution of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). The BMDS is an integrated, layered architecture that provides multiple opportunities to destroy missiles and their warheads before they can reach their targets. MET-I system engineers perform system-level assessments of the existing BMDS architecture and study the impacts of new technologies and concepts being considered for future BMDS architectures. The National Team engineers work closely with the MDA, FFRDCs, and various contractors and suppliers to shape the future of missile defense
A successful candidate will be responsible for performing analysis of current and future BMDS architectures using existing modeling and simulation (M&S) tools or M&S tools created or modified by the candidate. The individual may be part of a team performing architecture trade studies, developing and/or assessing electronic protection schemes for BMDS, developing performance requirements for portions of the BMDS, and/or assessing system performance. The successful candidate will have good communication skills and be capable of working independently and in a team environment.
Due to the diversity of projects executed on the MET-I contract, a wide variety of skill sets are being sought. If you have any experience in the following areas, please indicate this on your resume:
BMDS element domain knowledge (e.g., THAAD, Aegis BMD, Patriot, GMD, C2BMC, SBX)
Experience developing, running, and analyzing results of large, complex systems
Experience with sensors (active, passive, RF, EO/IR, etc.)
Experience running/developing 6DOF simulations
Experience modeling/assessing ballistic threats and defensive systems
Experience modeling/assessing air-defense threats and systems
Experience modeling/assessing electronic attack / electronic protection
Experience developing/analyzing/validating requirements
Experience leading projects
Experience using MBSE requirements and architecture tools (e.g., DOORS, Rhapsody)
