Simulation Support Analyst
Simulation Support Analyst to support simulation center activities in Leavenworth, KS.
Responsible to a Simulations Support Team Leader for analyzing complex problems to be solved using computer simulations and automated systems. Personnel must understand military doctrine and techniques, and apply those in a simulated environment. Performs necessary research, analysis, testing, deployment, and implementation of data, simulations, and software systems to provide warfighting commanders and their staffs at all echelons the ability to train with a large scale constructive simulation, to include planning, designing, and evaluating various components of the U.S. Army Joint Land Component Constructive Training Capability (JLCCTC) simulation network. May act as a functional or technical expert on all facets of the JLCCTC simulation suite of systems, to include systems analysis and software programming necessary to facilitate resolution of complex simulation/stimulation issues. Provide operational, analytical, and technical expertise to scenario development, exercise/experiment planning, and execution of combined training scenarios. Attend exercise/experiment planning events, perform site surveys, and analyze hardware, software, scenario stimulation, data collection, and after action review (AAR) requirements necessary to meet event and commander’s objectives. Be able to train simulation operators and advise in determining which Mission Command boxes will be stimulated during events. May evaluate and recommend new technologies to enhance current capabilities. Other duties may include installation, networking and operation of hardware and software, to include responding to hardware and software problems, and applying network security necessary to operate JLCCTC simulation models, collect data, and analyze results. Some shift work may be required for extended exercises. Travel both CONUS and OCONUS may be required.
