Formulates and applies mathematical modeling, simulation, statistical design, and other optimizing methods using various software packages that have direct application to the Test and Evaluation (T&E) of Information Technology/National Security Systems (IT/NSS). Must be skilled in the application of Science Based Test Design (SBTD) to T&E disciplines, which will provide valuable tactical, operational, and strategic information to senior leaders and decision-makers of the system. The resulting analysis and documented results often support resource allocation, optimal flow analysis of new technology into theater, and battlespace transition analysis. Incorporates various SBTD techniques to include design of experiment (DOE) and other statistical and analytical methods into Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I), Automated Information Systems (AIS), and IT/NSS Test and Evaluation Master Plans (TEMPs) and various test planning documents; executes SBTD methodologies during various phases of T&E; and analyzes and interprets SBTD results with respect to the overall system operational effectiveness and operational suitability. Identifies, develops, and analyzes technical and operational metrics to quantify effectiveness of operations to support the objectives and effects outlined in the T&E plan, including task and effects assessments. Assists test teams during test planning, test execution, data analysis, and formal report development. Provides support in defining problems, developing the analysis plan, gathering and reviewing data, constructing the model(s), testing and evaluation, analyzing the results, developing insights, and documenting the results. Recommends and implements processes that support quantitative and qualitative analysis, as appropriate. Formulates mathematical and/or simulation models of test problems in support of C4I, AIS, and IT/NSS T&E programs, relating test constants and variables, restrictions, alternatives, constraints, assumptions, conflicting objectives, and numerical parameters. Integrates system T&E information from various sources for efficient multi-stage design, statistical modeling, and, as applicable, analyses including incorporation of applicable statistical confidence intervals and sample sizing into test methodologies. Analyzes discrepancies in T&E service or performance and makes recommendation for test conduct updates. Produces clear and concise data analysis and conducts trend analyses of various data. Compiles reports, charts, and tables based on established statistical methods. Communicates analytical results to decision-makers in terms appropriate to the audience. Briefs and presents the problem, strategy, quantitative and qualitative analysis, results, conclusions, and recommendations at a high-level to leadership. A wide degree of creativity and latitude is expected.
