Employer: Cubic Corporation
Location: Okinawa Japan
Operate, provide instruction, and maintain a variety of computer based training for simulations/models with respect to Maneuver (specifically Infantry, Armor or Engineering), Aviation (both rotary and fix wing), Logistics, Fires (specifically, Artillery and Naval Surface Fires), and/or Military Intelligence Operations. Research documents and extracts for factual data describing the composition of military forces in a model/simulation. Assist in reviewing classified material and recommends a lesser classification for use in events, models/ simulations, demonstrations, reports, and/or briefings. Edit doctrinal manuscripts, analyze problem areas, and postulate feasible solutions for implementation in simulation training events. Translate “real world” or fictional enemy and friendly task organizations, tables of equipment, supply stockages and operational orders into simulation databases.. Conduct pre-event tests and evaluation of supporting databases, and parametric data.
Attend conferences and meetings at both home station and other off-site locations, providing recommendations and analysis of model/simulation employment both in preparation for and during exercises. Participate in structured simulation training events/exercises, and simulated rehearsals of operational plans/orders. Provide analysis of the functional area and advise the response cell members as to the best method of implementing a course of action given the strengths and weaknesses of the simulation. Conduct post-event critique and analysis employing various after action review tools/applications. Provide analysis of emerging simulation technologies against stated requirements to include drafting test plans, conducting tests, publishing test results, and maintaining/archiving simulation based training scenarios (including organizational databases, tactics, weapon system capabilities, doctrine, and force structures) for use in preparation of future exercises. Document the salient properties of the simulation being evaluated and their relevance to Marine Corps or Joint training. As it relates to the functional area, is capable of training, operating, and maintaining new models/simulations or upgrades to current models/simulations as they are introduced.
THIS IS PART TIME ON CALL POSITION
Civilian Education. Bachelor's degree preferred; four years of DoD modeling and simulation experience will serve in lieu of degree. Microsoft Office Certification preferred.
Military Education. Minimum four years experience in military training and education. Attendance at Career Level School such as an MOS specific Advanced Course or Marine Corps EWS (or higher) is desired. Completion of equivalent nonresident course is acceptable.
Military Operational Experience. Minimum five years operational experience in the functional area of Maneuver (specifically Infantry, Armor or Engineering), Aviation (both rotary and fix wing), Logistics, Fires (specifically, Artillery and Naval Surface Fires), and/or Military Intelligence and methods of meeting training and readiness standards during computer-assisted exercises (demonstrated ability to operate, provide instruction, and maintain a variety of computer based training for simulations/models in said warfighting functions). Minimum three years of demonstrated knowledge of military doctrine, tactics, and command relationships at MAGTF or joint/combined command level as measured by actual operational experience (real world operations is desired).
Modeling and Simulation Experience. Minimum two years experience in DoD modeling and simulation, and have previous experience with MTWS, and/or other simulation models such as VBS, JCATS, JSAF, OneSAF, AWSIM, CBS, or JTLS.
Proof of Security Clearance. Must be eligible for at least a secret clearance.
Able and willing to travel in the US and internationally to support program goals. Salary will be determined based upon current experience and relevance to the position.
