Position: Subject Matter Expert (SME) - Counter Unmanned Systems Support
Location: The Pentagon
Clearance: Top Secret, verifiable in JPAS
This position resides within the Protection Functional Capability Board (P FCB). Joint Force capabilities that counter unmanned systems protects personnel (combatant/non-combatant) and physical assets against the full spectrum of unmanned threats. The Joint Force will achieve this through the scaled and tailored selection and application of multi-layered, active and passive, lethal and non-lethal measures, within the air, ground, surface, sub-surface, and cyber domains, across the Range of Military Operations, based on assessment of an acceptable level of risk. The Joint Force must protect itself starting from point-of-origin, continuing through transit, employment, sustainment, and redeployment.

There is a need to provide analytical support and technical expertise across the unmanned systems domains (air, ground, surface, sub-surface, and cyber).

Members of the analytic cell shall also employ their functional and technical expertise in participating in strategy and planning development, programming, and a variety of feedback avenues.
The SME shall provide Unmanned Systems Subject Matter Expertise and JCIDS subject matter expertise to analyze and assess emerging Joint Capability Areas (JCA) directly related to countering unmanned systems.
