Job Description:

Position Description:

Parsons is seeking a Modeling and Simulation (M&S) engineer to support the DIA/MSIC Integrated Threat Analysis and Simulation Environment (ITASE) program of record. The engineer in this role works projects related to modeling and analysis of threat Command, Control, Communications, and Computers (C4) systems; communication systems and networks; and related analysis on all types of foreign threat weapon, sensor and communications systems. Engineering tasks may include 1) requirements development, simulation architecture definition, and system algorithm characterization; 2) integration of models into engagement-level and mission-level systems-of-systems (SoS) simulations; 3) analysis, development and enhancement of various high-fidelity threat models; 4) design, development and test of communications network models; 5) automated unit, system and SoS test planning, development and execution; support of small and large-scale simulation studies; and 6) system engineering and analysis. The candidate will integrate into the Parsons C4 and M&S team and work closely with the appropriate Parsons Task Leads to coordinate requirements, design, and testing of solutions.

The candidate must be self-motivated, a quick study, possess good communication skills, and be willing to work as part of an integrated product team consisting of both Government and contractor personnel. The candidate will become an expert in threat C4 systems, networks, tactics, protocols and techniques, as well as, advanced concepts in modeling and simulation of such dynamic, real-world implementations.

The ideal candidate would possess experience with C4 systems, RF- and EO/IR-based weapon and sensor systems, cyber warfare, directed energy weapon systems, GPS systems, military network communications, and the signal propagation environments associated with these systems. The candidate will work with all-source intelligence analysts, C4 system experts, and MSIC C4 team to develop and maintain C4 model software in C/C++.


The position will require a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a similar field. Candidate must be proficient in C++. Experience with Python and MATLAB/Simulink is desired. Candidate should have a minimum of 3-10 years of experience in modeling and simulation.

Security Requirements:

Candidate must be a US Citizen and possess (and be able to maintain) a Secret Clearance. The applicant must also have the ability and readiness to obtain a TS/SCI clearance. The candidate must successfully complete a counterintelligence-scope polygraph (CSP) or have on record a reciprocally acceptable polygraph examination prior to being granted unescorted access to DIA systems, facilities or information.
Must be able to obtain, maintain and/or currently possess a security clearance.
