Northrop Grumman Mission Systems is seeking a manager for the Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis (MS&A) organization in Linthicum, Maryland. The organization provides MS&A support to the company, primarily in the eastern region. The position is responsible for ensuring the systems engineering department and related disciplines have MS&A software developers, analysts, cost engineers, and model-based engineering/model-based systems engineering personnel, expertise, and tools necessary to support successful capture and execution of Northrop Grumman programs. This includes analytical modeling tools (MATLAB, C/C++, Java, and Python) as well as descriptive modeling tool (DOORS, Rhapsody, PTC, NoMagic, etc.). The position will advise programs and capture efforts on which expertise and tools best fit their application and how to tailor the MS&A process for their program scope and budget. The person hired for this position will develop and maintain relationships with other related functional homerooms, sectors, and customers to ensure MS&A best practices are known, understood, and adapted. The MS&A Manager will work with program management and engineering to develop an approach to design, develop, and test models and simulations of the desired mission or system.
