The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has a charter from Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff to serve as the Nuclear Command, Control and Communications (C3) Systems Engineer. DISA provides support to customers such as ASD (NII), Joint Staff (J-6), USSTRATCOM, and other organizations. Top Secret/SCI clearance is required.
JOB DESCRIPTION: Conduct a variety of quantitative and qualitative analyses using nuclear weapons effects models and simulations of various component systems and the Nuclear C3 System. Using the data from C3 system simulations, identify threat data provided by the intelligence community, identify simulations to be performed, reviewing and interpreting the outputs, and interpreting the results in their effect on the evolution of the Nuclear C3 System architecture. Utilize several government-provided nuclear weapons effects modeling and simulation tools developed by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and other DoD agencies in assessing the performance of the Nuclear C3 System under various stressed conditions and environments. These models include ISSA, HEMPTAPS, ASSIST, LFCOM, SATLINK, SIMBAL, COMLINK, WECOM (family-of-code), ICEPAC, ENGAGEMENT, and SREMTAPS. Conduct missile flight analysis, satellite coverage, and predicted communications link performance in nuclear disturbed environments. Utilize the HEMPTAPS modeling tool for computation of expected HEMP over voltage values at existing or planned equipment locations and utilize the WECOM set of codes for assessing the longer term nuclear weapons effects on communications circuits and channels. Support both quick reaction and longer continuing studies and analyses of nuclear C3 issues for OSD, the Joint Staff, various commands, the services and agencies.
- Expert in using and interpreting the results of DTRA''s nuclear weapons effects modeling and simulation codes such as the WECOM family of code.
. Sound knowledge of communications engineering, computer communications, network architecture, effects of nuclear weapons, tactical and strategic command and control, and radio frequency propagation.
. Experience working with nuclear C3 community stakeholders such as OSD (NII), Joint Staff, and USSTRATCOM.
- Must have TS/SSBI clearance with ability to obtain and SCI
- Ability to perform Nuclear C3 technical assessments of DoD communications including RF signal and channel characteristics, data link protocols, and long haul networking protocols and architectures.
