Description Overview: GMD System Engineer Analyst in Huntsville, Alabama. The GMD System is the first and only operationally deployed missile defense program to defend the homeland against Long-range ballistic missile attacks. The system provides early detection and tracking during the boost phase, midcourse target discrimination, precision intercept and destruction of inbound ICBMs through force of hit-to-kill technology. As prime contractor, Boeing is designing, producing, integrating, testing and sustaining all GMD components. The selected individual will lead GMD systems analysis teams and provide direction to influence future design of system architecture, performance analysis, battle space analysis, defended area, capabilities and limitations, raid size, and discrimination algorithms. The individual will also be expected to work with Boeing subject matter experts and industry leaders to access technologies and their application to Boeing programs and research & development. Responsibilities: Evaluating and influencing emerging missile defense performance and designs. Defining system analysis objectives and strategies. Evaluating system analysis tools. Determining courses of action and innovative approaches to complex system performance analysis and solutions. Developing key relationships with the customer, analysis organizations, and potential external partners. Proactively interacting with suppliers and government customer to facilitate collaboration. Authoring and providing briefings to senior Boeing, customer, and industry leaders. Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians. Skilled scientists and thinkers. Bold innovators and dreamers. Join us, and you can build something better for yourself, for our customers and for the world.
