Leidos is seeking a Systems Engineer who will be a member of a dynamic team working on the development of an air traffic control and management system that alleviates congestion in the En Route and Terminal airspaces. Nationwide congestion is increasing, and the need for efficient aircraft traffic planning is critical. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Time-Based Flow Management (TBFM) program is the decision support tool that will provide NextGen Air Traffic Control capabilities to improve air traffic operations in the National Airspace System (NAS).

The TBFM program is an FAA NextGen program that uses sophisticated algorithms to derive schedules and other tools for aircraft to meet at En Route and Terminal constraint satisfaction points (CSPs) in order to balance capacity and demand, resulting in more efficient use of airspace and enabling aircraft to reduce fuel burn. 

TBFM functions include: 
•    Deriving schedules at En Route and Terminal airspace CSPs and Runways
•    Providing the capability to schedule into Departure Meter Points (DMPs) and other CSPs from the Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) or Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) 
•    Deriving tools to be used in both the En Route and Terminal domain to help controllers meet schedules derived at CSPs, including speed advisories for aircraft and other visual indicators
•    Sharing information with external systems via the FAA’s System-Wide Information Management (SWIM) interface

•    Developing A-Level System/Subsystem Specification (SSS) requirements, B-Level Software Requirements Specification (SRS), Systems Engineering Modeling and Design, and Computer Human Interface design and mock-up development for the TBFM system
•    Interfacing with the FAA customer to address/answer questions relating to the developed requirements, use cases describing human interactions and design decisions
•    Performing Systems Engineering as needed for the TBFM system
•    Providing support needed for software development, integration and test, and other functional areas
•    Articulating user needs and requirements from high level user stories
•    Developing the design for the user interface framework including client and server side components; analyzing and designing databases within an application
•    Applicants selected will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.

Qualifications: 
•    Requires Bachelors of Science and 4+ years of prior relevant experience or Masters with 2+ years of prior relevant experience.
