Job Description:

The Maritime Solutions Division (MSD) of Leidos is currently seeking a qualified, energetic, and resourceful engineer to fill the position of Cameo Modeler Systems Engineer.  Leidos MSD develops and deploys advanced technology solutions that address existing and emerging maritime missions of national importance for a broad range of customers across the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, other governmental agencies, and commercial clients. This is an opportunity to assist in the development, demonstration, and production of advanced ocean sensor systems and payload subsystems as well as integration of those systems with manned and unmanned maritime platforms.

  • Provide foundational patterns and cross-cutting model elements to support creation of “to-be” models to capture the structure, behavior, and configuration settings that help assess the impacts/implications of change.
  • Translate systems engineering processes from traditional document-based system engineering efforts to delivery of model-based work products to customers as required.
  • Be an ambassador for MBSE by being able to speak to the benefits of this approach.
  • Collaborate and coordinate with external customers, management, subcontractors, vendors, and other engineering disciplines.
