Parsons Corporation is seeking candidates to join a highly successful team that has won and performed over $100 Million of Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) work around the world for more than 20 years. This challenging and exciting work will provide you the opportunity to travel CONUS and OCONUS to the most important DoD defense systems and critical infrastructure to ensure the survivability of any threat or attack. This is an exciting opportunity to experience travelling to destinations around the world and protecting mission critical infrastructure.
The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Nuclear Enterprise Support Directorate (NE) performs integrated, multidisciplinary, assessments that assess survivability of critical U.S. and allied national/theater mission systems, networks, architectures, infrastructures, and assets. Blue Team assessments teams aim to ensure continuity to DoD missions and critical infrastructure by assessing the vulnerabilities and survivability of these infrastructure against a broad spectrum of threats including accidents, natural disasters, technological failure, information system attacks, terrorists, radio frequency weapons (RFW), sabotage, and weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
In order to ensure continuity of DoD Missions and to maintain continuous operations of critical infrastructure, it is imperative to have fully functional Blue Teams (1) to conduct assessments; (2) to provide specific SME assistance to Technical Support Projects (TSPs); (3) to provide Design Review assistance; and (4) to provide technical assistance to the Home Team. The size and skillsets of each team will vary and include those required to execute each mission. The resource needs of each mission and/or stakeholder requests will be identified and managed by DTRA.
Blue Team assessments include, but are not limited to, examining surveillance operations, physical security, telecommunications (e.g., video, voice and data, commercial and military), information operations (e.g., computer networks, IA tools use, operations security), structural protection and response (to include blast effects modeling and consideration of anti-terrorism/force protection standards), utility subsystems (e.g., power and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning reliability and endurance), weapons of mass destruction protection, emergency operations (e.g., emergency preparedness, fire protection, emergency response, disaster control and recovery, continuity of operations), and electromagnetic protection (e.g., electromagnetic pulse and radio frequency weapon susceptibility, lightning protection). The Blue Team mission, by necessity, is fluid and requires the teams operating within these environments to be adaptable.
The Utilities Specialist’s responsibilities include reviewing and assessing the utilities supporting the customer’s missions, and any facilities and organizations that support them, using a consistent and repeatable methodology as an integral part of the DTRA BSA process. The UT Specialist identifies all aspects of utility-related vulnerabilities, increases the customer’s awareness of potential vulnerabilities and impacts of utilities on mission execution capability, and provides recommendations to mitigate or eliminate identified vulnerabilities. Utilities refers to those elements of a site that provide service support to operational equipment, personnel, and mission operations. Utilities are composed of three primary categories of systems: electrical power, environmental control, and life support. Electrical power consists of various subsystems including commercial power, backup power generation, power distribution, and uninterruptible power. Environmental control consists of subsystems including refrigerated cooling, heating, humidity control, and waste heat removal. Life support consists of subsystems including fresh air ventilation, potable water, food, and sewage. Ancillary subsystems providing support to operational utility equipment include fuel, compressed air, vacuum, filtration, and specialized utilities, such as cryogenics (e.g., liquid nitrogen [LN] and liquid oxygen [LOX]).
Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical, electrical, nuclear, or marine engineering; OR a combination of a Bachelor of Science degree in a related field of study with operational experience from the U.S. Navy Nuclear Power Program, the U.S. Army Prime Power Program, or a recognized equivalent.
