Infoscitex (IST), a DCS company, has an opportunity for Software Engineers to support an extensive modeling and simulation development effort in Columbus, OH. Our team is developing software for the Advanced Framework for Simulation, Integration, and Modeling (AFSIM).
Innovation. Creativity. Cutting edge research and development. Infoscitex is looking for self-driven team-oriented software developers to work with our team of scientists, engineers, and researchers who are at the forefront of Air Force technologies. Be part of a growing team of engineers and researchers solving highly complex problems by working in cross-disciplinarian teams including experts in the fields of computer science, cyber and sensing technologies, data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual reality, gaming design, operational analysis, psychology, and cognitive sciences.
AFSIM is a U.S. Air Force simulation environment written in C++ and utilized for engagement-level and mission-level analysis by military operations research analysts to evaluate combat effectiveness of advanced weapon system concepts. AFSIM is a Monte Carlo simulation tool which may be run either constructively to generate analytic results, or in real-time to support Operator in the Loop (OITL) Experimentation and Wargaming needs. AFSIM is now becoming accepted as a standard operations analysis tool across DoD and industry.
Essential Job Functions:
In this role, you will have the opportunity to support activities in the following areas:
Development of a next generation AFSIM-based OITL simulation environment for analysts and warfighters.
Improving our AFSIM Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which provides a user interface to AFSIM for scenario generation, model execution, and results visualization.
Upgrading visualization tools utilizing Qt for GUI controls and Open GL and Open Scene Graph (OSG) for graphics.
Research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques as applied to military tactics and human behavior representations.
Extending our Pseudo 6 Degrees of Freedom (P6DOF) modeling capabilities and associated tools.
Development of Air to Air combat engagement capabilities utilizing AI algorithms and P6DOF models.
Effects based representation of Cyber Warfare techniques as applied to military operations.
Modeling of space operations, including advanced sensors.
Improvements to high fidelity, engagement level modeling of Surface to Air Missile (SAM) intercepts of air targets.
Ongoing development of physics-based representations of aerospace vehicles, weapon systems, sensors (including tracking and fusion capabilities), Electronic Warfare (EW) techniques, cyber effects, and communication systems.
You could anticipate being asked to:
Develop C++ simulation software, including mathematical and physics based algorithms and graphical user interfaces and visualization..
Participate within a software development team to design, develop, test, and deploy assigned modeling and simulation software.
Apply software best practices (software development processes, version control, documentation, etc.) for all developed and modified software.
Interact with government and industry customers to define requirements and meet analytic needs.
Some short term travel may also be requested of you, from time to time.
Due to the sensitivity of customer related requirements, U.S. Citizenship is required.
At least a BS degree in engineering, mathematics, computer science, or related technical discipline and some related experience. (We have multiple levels associated with this opportunity category. Candidates with varying degree and experience combinations may be considered for alternative classifications.)
Applicants selected will be subject to a U.S. Government background investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information: ability to attain at least a Secret level DoD security clearance.
Experience developing object-oriented software using programming languages such as C++, C#, or Java.
Ability to work well in team oriented environments.
Ability to travel, if needed.
