The Boeing Company Distributed Mission Operations Engineer F 15 USAF Trainers in St Louis, Missouri
Train F-15 Pilots and Weapon System Operators to fly, fight and win!
F-15 USAF Trainers, a team in Boeing Global Services’ Training and Professional Services’ Training Systems organization, is currently seeking a Distributed Mission Operations (DMO) L ead located in St Louis Mo . The successful candidate will focus on the training of F-15C and F-15E aircrew in a complex fully-networked environment of highly realistic training systems that simulate United States Air Force fighter aircraft, surveillance aircraft, and command and control systems. This candidate will be the focal for defining and executing DMO required updates and upgrades to the sophisticated set of devices needed to control F-15 training systems and monitor student performance in highly realistic simulators and environments.
In this position the candidate will work with the DMO community, F-15 USAF Trainers customer, product leadership, and chief engineer to identify emerging requirements, assist with translating these requirements into Statements of Work and Specifications for proposals, assist engineering teams in establishing Earned Value Measurement (EVM) baselines for contracted work, communicate and interpret technical requirements for impacted engineering teams, lead integrated engineering team execution, communicate execution status to F-15 USAF Trainers leadership and the customer, and assess the impact of proposed technical and schedule changes.
