  • Rapidly come up to speed on existing SIGINT products, systems and capabilities that relate to areas of current and new development
  • Understand platforms used for SIGINT systems in government missions
  • Understand customer objectives and requirements, and conceptualize and put into practice new solutions
  • Brief those solutions to the customer community as the customer concepts evolve into firmer requirements and expectations
  • Define, analyze and document CONOPS, system requirements and specifications, and system architecture
  • Define, execute, and document technical trade, impact, and risk analyses
  • Generate concrete plans for loosely defined and/or highly complex challenges to enable engineering teams to execute and deliver solutions accordingly
  • Lead teams of engineers to develop and integrate software, hardware and FPGA components and platforms to form new solutions
  • Lead, plan and execute system integration and test as well as system deployment efforts
  • Provide technical, system operation and training support
  • Maintain customer focus throughout the systems/product development lifecycle to ensure satisfaction of customer objectives within cost and schedule constraints
  • Lead proposal preparation and program definition
