Job Description

November 2016 - This is NOT an IT position... The primary focus of this position is on developing and formatting acquisition specifications for future transportation security passenger, baggage, and cargo screening technologies. This involves Requirements elicitation and evolution from operational requirements to functional and technical requirements and production of testable system requirements. As Systems Engineer you will be responsible for implementing the DHS acquisition policy and framework: Acquisition Directive (AD) 102 in support of the Transportation Security Administration' s Office of Security Capabilities. DOD 5000 acquisition experience is directly applicable

We need systems engineers - preferably knowledgeable of TSA systems - and all the paperwork that supports new technology insertion whether in baggage screening systems or in checkpoint applications. For example, they should also understand how to write a very detailed Broad Agency Announcement with detailed requirements. This understanding would ideally derive from actually having written a detailed BAA.

Must Have: US CITIZENSHIP, and BS in Engineering

o Extensive knowledge and facility in systems engineering, systems development methodology, project management.

o Direct extensive hands-on experience with DHS AD 102 requirements (or DoD 5000 equivalent)

o Direct experience with the acquisition of complex Explosive Detection Systems [EDS], Advanced Technology (AT) and Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT)
