C2 Systems Operations Research Analysis: Provide personnel to analyze the effects of proposed requirements on C2 networks and how these requirements would enhance the ability of the warfighter to employ emerging C2 concepts. Personnel will analyze technical solutions against schedule, cost, need satisfaction, risk and operational relevance as part of a solution set including all DOTMLPF solutions.
Analyze C2 requirements and solutions as they affect Air Force, Joint, and Coalition missions through C2 TDLs and interface to other C2 systems/networks. Additionally, document their alignment to Joint and AF doctrine or needed changes to doctrine based on increased capabilities.
Provide assistance to platform programs in defining TDL requirements, planning, and equipping with needed supporting systems and message implementations.
Provide expertise and support for efforts like the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) that explore unique ways of integrating new capability onto AF platforms.
Support building the documentation, briefings, and justification for development of Program Objective Memorandum (POM) submission.
Participate in both technical and operational community discussions with the ability to summarize and communicate TDL needs and issues related to emerging concepts such as Friendly Force Tracking (FFT) and Network-Enabled Weapons (NEW).
Review and assess network management architectures and proposed specific radio and communications equipment.
Actively contribute in forums such as the Joint Tactical Edge Networks (JTEN) group that advance the DoD ability to resolve shortfalls in developing and managing tactical networks.
Collect, validate and prioritize requirements, develop and review documentation, and provide AF requirements in support of data link communications using the JCIDS process.
Participate in CBA, FAA, FNA, FSA, and development of other JCIDS documents to support capabilities required for TDN Transformation.
Participate in JCTD activities, such as the Joint Warfighting Integrated NetOps (JWIN) JCTD.
Assist in developing, coordinating, reviewing, and commenting on Air Force requirements documentation for the AFRRG, AFROC and JROC.
Participate in on site evaluations of emerging systems both during system tests, experimentation and exercises.
Bachelor’s Degree in computer science, information systems, business administration, management or other related technical or scientific discipline.
Five (5) years’ experience working Airborne or Ground Theater Air Control System issues at the MAJCOM level.
Five (5) years’ operational experience in operational C2 systems.
Five (5) years’ specialized experience with TDL systems, gateways, and networks.
Five (5) years’ prior experience analyzing and evaluating operational capabilities and limitations of technical solutions for TDL systems.
Three (3) years’ experience in a HHQ (e.g., MAJCOM, NAF, HAF or equivalent) staff officer or equivalent position creating, preparing, conducting, delivering, attending oral/written decision briefs, reports, positions, draft messages and other correspondence.
Three (3) years’ experience in analyzing, developing and evaluating directives, policies and procedures associated with the modernization and sustainment of TDL Systems, TDL Networks, and TDL Gateways programs and systems.
Three (3) years’ experience with planning, designing and assessing the results of AF or joint experimentation.
One core FTE must have rated operational experience with (3) three year’s experience in technologies associated with tactical datalinks.
