Leidos is seeking a Seismic Analyst to join the US Prompt Diagnostic System (USPDS) team at Patrick AFB, FL, in support of the National Technical Nuclear Forensics (NTNF) mission. Candidates must already possess a current TS/SCI security clearance in order to be considered.
The position will provide technical analytical support in the areas of speed of sound (SOS) technologies (seismic, overpressure, infrasound). Primary task will be to review daily data feeds to discern, identify, and document man-made phenomena verses naturally occurring phenomena. The analyst will also document any state of health (SOH) issues with sensors, software or communication systems from an estimated 80 sensor locations. The analyst will collaborate with customer operations and subject matter experts (SMEs) to understand background noise at sensor sites and their impact on data evaluation and review. The seismic analyst will document standard operating procedures, checklists, and concept of operations baselines and changes that occur as the contractor refines analyst duties. Opportunities also exist for the analyst to make recommendation to automate data evaluations to reduce data reviews.
