A program within our Defense Group has an immediate opening for a C-UAS Threat and Security Assessment Integrator in the Reston, VA area.
As a C-UAS Threat and Security Assessment Analyst, you will provide specialized threat analysis and security assessment support to evaluate C-UAS reporting and understand and mitigate the threat posed by Unmanned Aerial Systems to critical infrastructure, locations, and assets. You will monitor and conduct detailed operational analysis on C-UAS systems data reports to ensure successful transfer into a usable, quantitative format for analysis. You will incorporate C-UAS data and other related data sources to conduct operations, security, and multi-intelligence analysis that aids Military Commanders to detect, identity, monitor, and track UAS activity. You will develop assessments and recommend procedures and courses of action that could be used to obtain operationally actionable information augmenting DoD’s responsibility to mitigate the threat posed by unmanned aircraft systems to the safety or security of covered DoD facilities or assets. The position may potentially require rotating OCONUS deployments of 4-6 months.
In this role, you will:
Integrate available UAS data with existing national-level products and databases to define patterns of threat and UAS network activity and narrow the search space to conduct counter-threat and support C-UAS operations. As required, you will interact directly with local, state and Federal law enforcement agencies; the Department of Homeland Security and other DoD and Federal Agencies to develop comprehensive operations-intelligence products that inform a variety of activities to protect critical infrastructure, providing an enhanced risk picture for DoD to enable and inform force protection efforts and also provide threat assessments to installations that inform risk-based decision making.
Participate in the development and fielding of operational and analytical tools and techniques that enhance the organization’s ability to ingest, collate, search and tailor UAS related data to meet customer requirements.
Work as part of a multifunctional team of operations-intelligence analysts, operational planners, technologists and subject matter experts to assist a variety of interagency partners with fusing CUAS, operations, and intelligence information to enhance their effectiveness against UAS threats and associated networks. You will identify and analyze problems, and generate recommended solutions based upon experience working with elements of the DOD, JCO, and interagency and law enforcement agencies, and multi-national partners.
