ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

  • 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. 
  • Provide analysis of a functional area (aviation, ground combat, command and control, combat service support, intelligence, and opposing forces) and identify strengths and weaknesses as they occur during a simulation supported event.
  • 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. 
  • Research and document extracts or factual data for composition of military forces for a model/simulation.
  • Document the salient properties of the simulation being evaluated and their relevance to Marine Corps or Joint training. 
  • Serve as USMC lead for Joint, Live, Virtual, and Constructive (JLVC) tests and exercises. 
  • Provide guidance, direction and supervision during JLVC events.
  • Provide analysis of emergent simulation technologies against stated requirements. This includes drafting test plans, conducting tests, publishing test results, and maintaining and archiving of simulation based training scenarios including organizational databases, tactics, weapon system capabilities, doctrine, and force structures for use in preparation of strategic or tactical exercises.
  • Research and archive authoritative USMC force authorization data, such as the USMC Global Force Management Data Holdings.
  • Based upon USMC authoritative data and knowledge of JLVC and MTWS specific data requirements, develop production simulation ready data sets for storage in the JTDS Repository
  • Ensure data sets correctly represent USMC forces in Joint Tests/Exercises.
  • Assist Joint Staff (J7) M&S division, from time to time, with the testing of said data sets to ensure the technical integration with MTWS and the overall JLVC federation.
  • 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.
  • Perform other related duties incidental to the work described
