ACT I has been providing solutions for high profile military programs such as the U.S. Navy's and the U.S. Air Force's Joint Strike Fighter F-35, the U.S. Navy's F-18, EA-18G and F-16N Aggressor, and the U.S. Air Force's F-22 Raptor since 1998.
We are a Small Business DoD Contractor and are seeking candidates to immediately provide on-site support and tools to augment and enhance forces and operations at 608 AOC/SMAC (AFGSC) Barksdale Air Force Base (AFB) LA, and deployed in the Continental United States (CONUS) and Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS) locations.
Place of Performance : 608th AOC, Barksdale AFB, LA
Period of Performance : 19Sep2017-18Sep2018 (plus one 12-month option period)
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 contract System Analyst shall develop modeling and simulation studies that optimize mission planning by assessing the characteristics and performance of foreign integrated threat weapon systems across the air, land, sea, and cyber domains. Duties include creating system-of-system scenarios, mission planning, asset operations, operator training, threat analysis and data transfers. Through this assignment, the analyst will develop study plans detailing measures of effectiveness, assumptions, limitations, variables, run matrix, operational and M&S architecture. They will analyze complex US mission plans performance against the foreign threat systems to identify strengths and weaknesses of the plan as well as providing feedback on potential improvements. The analyst will analyze, brief and provide feedback to customers and management after studies are completed. They must also be knowledgeable of the use and output from intelligence center partner models including models such as MSIC, NASIC, ONI, and NGIC.
Collaboration with both blue planners and foreign weapon system analysts is essential to ensure scenarios and results match the assessed threat will support customer requests.
