    Job Description

    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:
