Systems Engineer- Journeyman


The Systems Engineer- Journeyman shall perform engineering duties in designing, constructing, and testing in support of Navy training devices.

  • Conduct basic and applied research to evaluate adaptability of materials and equipment to training device design and manufacture.
  • Recommend improvements in testing equipment and techniques.
  • Analyze technical documentation and prepare technical design approaches for training system(s). The technical design approach shall provide alternative design approaches that will include tradeoff analyses and identify technical risks.
  • Analyze and identify facility requirements such as size buildings, air conditioning, electrical power and grounding, raised flooring, etc. to satisfy training requirements.
  • Develop cost and lead-time estimates for training system development.
  • Apply decision analysis techniques to ensure that the engineering approach is cost effective and satisfies the training objectives.
  • Upon determination of the proper engineering approach:
  • Prepare a technical description that includes a block diagram and math models.
  • Determine the degree of fidelity of the simulation necessary to maximize the transfer of training.
  • Develop quantitative criteria and recommend tradeoffs regarding inputs received from supporting personnel concerning training system change(s). Provide contractor support to planners.
  • Develop inputs to engineering specifications detailing design, performance, testing, and provisions for the acceptance of the engineering changes.
  • Assist with the development of evaluation criteria and evaluate non-competitive technical proposals and work statements submitted by commercial contractors or in-house resources.
  • When appropriate:
  • Recommend the best technical approach submitted in response to the specification.
  • Clarify engineering design ambiguities, highlighting areas of design deficiency, and resolving conflicts in the proposed engineering technical approach.
  • Document the configuration, design, and performance characteristics of the proposed training system.
  • Conduct market research.
  • Develop inputs to engineering specifications and other documents IAW NAWCTSD Orlando's policies and procedures on Technical Procurement Package Preparation and Processing.
  • Review training system contractor's design approach, criteria, and design reports.
  • Evaluate the design approach, criteria and reports, and provide evaluation comments.
  • Continuously assess training system contractor performance and recommend appropriate action when contractor delinquencies or deficiencies occur.
  • Recommend changes to the training systems contract based on revisions to military training requirements, changes to performance characteristics, or plans for product improvements.
  • Monitor the configuration management of the training system.
  • Monitor and assess training system hardware and software development status and provide CSS in resolving related programmatic issues.
  • Identify problems being encountered in hardware and software development and provide recommendations as to how to resolve these problems.
  • Review the training system contractor's proposed test criteria and test procedures, and subsequently perform examinations and acceptance tests.
  • Analyze potential requirements for modifications on training systems in the operational phase of the training system life cycle. This involves extensive research and coordination, including direct contract with fleet activities, Government laboratories and device/system users.
  • When required, propose technical solutions related to project during training systems contractor or in-house resource performance. Review waivers and deviations in material, processes, and selection, performance characteristics and testing parameter variances.
  • Participate in design review conferences and address and evaluate trade-offs concerning maintainability and reliability.
  • Other duties as assigned

  • Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, visual engineering, aeronautical engineering, aerospace engineering, or mechanical engineering.
  • 3+ years of experience with hardware and software design and integration.
  • Experience with Defense Department acquisition policy and SETR procedures or like experience.
  • Secret clearance required.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities
  • Must have the ability to attend all customer in-person meetings and conferences within two (2) hours, as requested.
  • Ability to travel locally up to 50%.
