 Job Responsibilities    Saalex Solutions, Inc. is an engineering and information technology company with a focus on Range Operations and Maintenance, Information Technology, Engineering Services, and Integrated Logistics Support. Our highly responsive and effective independent support teams offer a broad spectrum of technical and managerial expertise. We understand your user requirements, your acquisition processes, and your state-of-the-art technologies. Customers appreciate our in-depth knowledge of aerospace systems and programs, which allows us to address not only easily measured objectives, but those more difficult to define criteria, such as quality, utility, and effectiveness. We believe we can consistently offer the best value alternative for mission accomplishment, regardless of the level of technical complexity.

Leads and manages the 25-person Integrated Verification and Planning (IV&P) Team on the GPS SE&I contract, one of four Test, Evaluation and Verification (TEV) sub-teams. Directs a team that plans, documents, executes and closes-out requirement verifications for system-level specification(s) and external Interface Control Documents. Provides technical and managerial direction to a system-level verification team that plans for/employs all methods: test, analysis (including M&S), etc. Oversees the SE&I support to associated segment-level Test and Verification (T&V) programs to include those for the space segment (GPS III program, currently auditing/closing-out ~1500 requirement verifications) and the control segment (Next Generation Operational Control System, OCX program, approaching verification Critical Design Review). Additionally, leads team that provides T&V support to the United States Nuclear Detonation Detection System (USNDS) ground and space segments both on-site and in the field. Also, oversees the GPS "Block IIF crew chief" activity, in-factory engineers that support the USAF's sell-off/acceptance of these newly produced space vehicles.

For the "Planning" aspects, the incumbent leads the development, documentation, implementation and employment of "Event Based Planning" (EBP), a major new SE&I initiative that integrates all aspects of the GPS Integration & Test program. The IV&P lead manages the full-scale development of the EBP capability using the integrated Requirement Information System (iRIS), linking several SE&I data bases (DOORS, risk, IMS, etc.) with an overall requirement-to-event execution matrix. The Lead has responsibility for standing-up an SE&I "Event Owner" group that creates/updates/coordinates some 150 key "event-defining documents" and leads the conduct/close-out of those events.

The Lead's management responsibilities include developing/managing-to resource-loaded Integrated Master Schedules, budgets, staffing plans and Earned Value data. Incumbent frequently reports plans/status/issues to senior SE&I leadership and to upper-levels of the GPS Directorate, the USAF's GPS System Program Office. A particularly important aspect of this position involves coherent and effective leadership of a large technical team engaged in related but separate T&V mission areas. Incumbent must have the skill set to effectively lead this diverse IV&P team and interact/communicate well at all levels of the newly established GPS SE&I matrix organization
Experience/Education Required Required
• 10+ years experience in Systems Engineering, Integration and Test (SEIT)
• Experience verifying space and/or ground systems requirements by test and analysis
• Well-established skill-set for effectively leading/managing large, diverse technical teams
• Significant experience with large project planning, budgeting, scheduling, staffing, reporting
• Exceptional interpersonal, oral communication and technical writing skills
• BS in either a hard science or a relevant engineering field

• SEIT experience with the GPS program
• Experience with T&V and project tools/products: DOORS, VCRMS, test/verification plans, MS project, etc.
• Knowledge of DoD's and/or USAF's Test and Evaluation policies, guidance and practices
• MS, MBA or Masters in (engineering) management

We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
