As a member of the Leidos Team’s support to NATO Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) System Engineering and Integration (SE&I) Project, the Jr. IT Engineer will provide technical expertise in the setup and operation of the NATO BMD ITB laboratory. Duties range from performing IT Support to configuring and setting up the ITB tool suite to support a BMD test event or exercise. 

The ITB Open Framework Services (OFS) consists of a set of computer simulation tools that enable early testing of the BMD architecture as well as the capability for extensive integration testing to ensure that all National systems work effectively and efficiently together. The ITB enables connection of any combination of constructive simulations, National laboratories and live systems into a realistic friendly force structure, and enable injecting realistic threat scenarios into those integrated components for a variety of purposes that range from architecture interoperability assessment, to evaluating Concepts of Operation (CONOPs). In addition to the OFS, the ITB lab includes NATO Command and Control (C2) prototype systems and several constructive simulations. The ITB Equipment and systems can be connected to external systems or representations via the Combined Federated Battle Laboratory Network (CFBLNet), or the NATO General Communications Systems (NGCS) operational network.

The BMD ITB OFS Has been transitioned from a classic hardware-based server system to a virtualized environment using HP Blades, CISCO 4500 switches and NetApp Data Storage hardware, and VMWare products for software. MäK products (MäK RTI and VR Exchange) are used for providing both a DIS and HLA interface within the ITB, and for external connections to simulations, hardware-in-the-loop labs, and live systems.

Level of Responsibility: The role of the IT Engineer is to participate on a team of technical specialists to ensure the ITB Open Framework Services operating efficiently, support the set-up and configuration of the tool suite for a test event, perform software (OFS) and hardware configuration management, and ensure security compliance for aspects of the ITB.
