SMAC supports the Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) by optimizing efficiency and combat effectiveness of High Demand Low Density (HD/LD) global strike and theater standoff munitions. Recognizing that integrated cross domain effects enable warfighting success at the operational-level, SMAC leverages capabilities from other domains. The team accomplishes this by integrating (synchronizing, coordinating and deconflicting) disparate standoff munition (missile and decoy) effects with other joint/coalition kinetic and non-kinetic capabilities in support of combatant commander objectives.
The contractor standoff weapons (SOW) planner will formulate cruise missile, decoy/jammer strategy and future employment visions for the DoD. They will assess all aspects of cruise missile and decoy/jammer mission planning, execution and training in support of all combatant commanders. Planners will be located at the SMAC
- Conduct mission task analysis for kinetic systems
- Recommend cruise missile routing for tasked applications and advise on cruise missile capabilities against specific centers of gravity (COG) and high-value targets (HVT) to create the desired effects and support accomplishment of the commander’s objectives
- Provide feasibility assessment on cruise missile capabilities and effects in relation to tasked objectives. Advise on force application, execution planning, and combat assessment
- Provide liaison between geographic Combatant Commander (COCOM)s, DoD units and agencies, other government agencies, and SMAC
- Conduct standoff munition mission planning and integration in accordance with SMAC processes and USAF/USN/USMC/USA tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) for approximately ten (10) exercises/ experiments/ studies/tests per year
- Assist in the development and conduct planning and integration of future standoff munition weapon systems.
- Develop, maintain, and coordinate SMAC ISR systems downtime and upgrades and timelines, establishing and coordinating priorities as appropriate
- Participate in DT&E and OT&E as standoff munition mission planning system and application SME
- Integrate Air Force, Navy, and Army Standoff Weapons (SOW) long range planning functions to support Combatant Commanders;
- Provide planning, definition, implementation, and operational management of global Standoff Weapons (SOW) to yield more effective and flexible use of Low Density High Demand SOWs
- Provide JFACCs integrated operational-level planning expertise and user requested adaptable products for long-range standoff munitions effects to assist the Standoff Attack Coordination Cells (SACC) in their AOR specific planning
- Provide knowledge management and tools to support the standoff munition community's collaboration efforts, and focused exercises, education, training, and advocacy for integration of standoff munition capabilities
- Assist all deployed SMAC teams and all AOCs in development of the theater standoff employment plan largely based on the apportioned assets and the Joint Integrated Prioritized Target List (JIPTL)
- Accomplish varying levels of strategic and tactical standoff munition planning, largely dependent on the coordination cell's capabilities and plan complexity
- Assist National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) and Missile and Space Intelligence Center (MSIC) with country plan development
- Provide cruise missile or decoy assignment and planning guidance
- Provide accurate recommendations on Target Area Model (TAM) prioritization and alteration
- Active SECRET security clearance required
- At least one year of specialized experience, including expert knowledge of JASSM, JASSM-ER, MALD, and MALD-J operation, testing, training principles, concepts, directives, practices, tactics, and techniques.
- Participation in AOC and combatant command exercises or operations. Real world contingency experience is highly desired
- Experience supporting AOC operations within classified environments to include SIPRNet and JWICS.
- Demonstrated proficiency using unclassified Non-Secure Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet) and classified SIPRNet network enterprise environments
- Demonstrated mastery of combat air force principles, concepts, directives, practices, analytical methods and techniques and seasoned consultative skill sufficient to resolve internal problems not susceptible to treatment by standard methods. Typical problems addressed are beyond normal day-to-day route processes and procedures
- Demonstrated expert knowledge of a wide range of qualitative and/or quantitative methods for assessment and improvement of DoD Joint Air-to- Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM), Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile Extended Range (JASSM-ER), Miniature Air Launched Decoy (MALD), and Miniature Air Launched Decoy Jammer (MALD-J) operations
- Knowledge of overall performance factors for JASSM, JASSM-ER, MALD, and MALD-J
- Ability to plan, organize, and negotiate effectively with senior analysts and management to accept and implement recommendations, where proposals involve substantial resources and require extensive changes in established concepts and procedures
- Ability to plan, organize and teach cruise missile and decoy mission planning, employment practices, and mission planning software to new JASSM/MALD planners. Ability to communicate effectively both orally and in writing; negotiating complex issues
- Demonstrated JASSM/JASSM-ER/MALD/MALD-J planner proficiency with Joint Mission Planning System and Unix Mission Planning Systems
- Bachelor’s degree in Technical, Engineering, or Computer Information Systems related degree required or equivalent related military work experience (United States Air Force [USAF], United States Navy [USN] or United States Marine Corp [USMC])
