Job Description:

Leidos is seeking a Seismic Analyst /Software System Tester at Patrick Space Force Base.  Candidate must possess an active DoD Top Secret security clearance and SCI eligibility to be considered.

Leidos supports the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) on both the US National Data Center (US NDC) and National Technical Nuclear Forensics (NTNF) missions.  Candidates must demonstrate expertise in
integrating and testing systems with real-time geophysical data processing, and interactive seismic analysis via the US NDC Analyst Review Station (ARS) tool to review time-series data.  

AFTAC's mission is to monitor compliance with nuclear test ban treaties to standards set by US verification and policy leaders.  Both the US NDC and NTNF mission areas support AFTAC to detect, identify, and characterize nuclear events and to report nuclear forensic information to national authorities.  The position will provide technical analytical support in the areas of speed of sound (SOS) technologies (seismic, hydroacoustic, infrasound, and overpressure).  Task will be to review daily data feeds to discern, identify, and document man-made phenomena verses naturally occurring phenomena, along with support the software testing lifecycle.  

For the NTNF mission support, 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.  

For the US NDC mission support, the position is responsible for the seismic and system testing and evaluation of the US NDC software applications and systems, to include software, hardware, database, and geophysical aspects.  The candidate will join the software and systems team in developing test plans based on the software requirements and technical specifications for unit testing, integration testing, and pre- and post-promotion testing phases.  Duties also include execution of the test plans, documentation of test results and anomalies, performance of regression testing of software and prototype algorithms, and preparation of data sets.  The candidate will also conduct SOS analysis to verify the geophysical aspects of the system, analyze system faults, troubleshoot, and run diagnostic tests to identify and assist in the correction of deficiencies identified during testing and communicate with developers to resolve the deficiency.


*Active DoD Top Secret clearance with the ability to obtain a TS/SCI

*6+ years seismic, hydroacoustic, infrasonic and overpressure analysis experience

*Experience analyzing data on a large world-wide network of sensors to identify and associate to locate events on a global scale.
