Support end-to-end mission modeling to support hypothesis evaluation, experimentation, demonstrations, concepts, designs and other R&D activities through graphical and mathematical models, virtual reality simulations, computer programming, and statistical analysis to support performance assessments of advanced concepts. Create models (physical, mathematical, or using approved software applications) as logical representations of current and proposed sensors and systems, innovative architectures, and phenomenologies. Understand and document simulation governance (analysis, experimentation, training, basis of estimates) for insight into simulation applicability and boundaries. Support collaboration, coordination, and integration of Modeling and Simulation efforts between programs/activities and with other modeling and simulation activities both internal and external to achieve program goals. Facilitate coordination with subject matter experts, academia, and non-government laboratories to perform modeling, simulation, assessments, or other technical research.
