The Stennis Programs team at Leidos currently has an opening for a Geophysical Data Analyst to work for the Navy at John C. Stennis Space Center, MS. This is an exciting opportunity to use your experience helping the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) on their European Deterrence Initiative (EDI) mission. In this project we work with government scientists, technologists and oceanographers to discover, process and analyze marine geo-acoustic and oceanographic data sets, develop specialized databases and build products used for fleet ocean forecasts and predictions. This mission includes the deployment and maintenance of autonomous data collection platforms to supplement the significant data holdings that NAVOCEANO possess. NAVOCEANO is a recognized national Center of Excellence for unmanned systems for operational and next-generation technologies. This project is a part of that leading edge of naval operational oceanography.
Driven by our talented workforce, the Exploration and Mission Support Operation builds trust through the delivery of enduring solutions for our customers’ information technology and mission support needs. We enable the delivery of citizen services and the exploration of space and scientific advancement to benefit humankind.

The Geophysical Data Analyst will work as part of a team embedded within the Acoustic Modeling and Databases Division (NP53) of the Acoustics Department within the Naval Oceanographic Office. The Analyst will take direction and guidance from the NP53 Technical Point of Contact but will also have considerable latitude in day-to-day activities involving the data discovery, preparation and analysis needed to develop/update geo-acoustic seafloor databases. Seafloor and sub-bottom sediments play a significant role in the performance of acoustic energy transmissions in the water column - a critical component of naval environmental support. The databases developed by NP53 scientists provide Navy-standard characterizations of those effects which are essential to effective acoustic modeling for fleet assets.
