Raytheon Technologies Systems Engineer in Schriever AFB, Colorado
Colorado Springs CO
The Systems Engineer will be supporting the Command and Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) program. C2BMC is the integrating element of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). It is a vital operational system that enables the U.S. president, secretary of defense and combatant commanders at strategic, regional and operational levels to systematically plan ballistic missile defense operations, to collectively see the battle develop, and to dynamically manage designated networked sensors and weapons systems to achieve global and regional mission objectives. C2BMC supports a layered missile defense capability that enables an optimized response to threats of all ranges in all phases of flight. C2BMC is the force multiplier that globally and regionally networks, integrates and synchronizes autonomous sensor and weapon systems and operations to optimize performance. C2BMC is an integral part of all system ground and flight tests which verify and exercise all current and future BMDS capabilities.
The Systems Engineer will be part of the Field and Integration Test team. The Field and Integration Test team is responsible for the integration of the C2BMC system into the MDIOC C2BMC Testbed and the Operational systems. The Integration activity is to ensure the install matches the Configuration Managed baseline and to verify settings and operations. The Test activity is to exercise high level functions and capabilities to ensure no change from the test environment. The servers and workstations are both Linux and Windows based, using virtual servers. Integration includes troubleshooting of the installed software to identify resolutions if the system is incorrectly installed or if settings are incorrect. Troubleshooting includes activities that most System Administrators should have the knowledge to identify and resolve most common issues. C2BMC is deployed internationally; therefore some travel may be required, but most efforts are from a central location with remote access.
