Programme Engineering Manager - (Systems Lead)

Requisition ID 141019BR Date updated 05/28/2019

Job Title: Programme Engineering Manager - (Systems Lead)
Req ID: 141019BR

Summary of Role

A Systems Lead / Programme Engineering Manager is required for the Defence Targeting Toolset (DTT) Programme. Working within the Command and Control section of the Cyber & Intelligence Business Unit, the DTT Programme is comprised of two Agile projects; DTT and IMT.

DTT provides users with a single source-of-truth in collation and management of targeting data, including consumption of data from external services, distribution and guaranteeing consistency; thorough audit capability of decision making; automatic generation of reports; and an increase in operational tempo.

IMT provides a holistic ISR enterprise approach and ability to leverage the full capacity of existing ISR capabilities to achieve better understanding. This capability reduces the issues associated with increased volume, velocity, and variety of data, to make the analysts’ task more manageable. The provision of intelligence requirements management (IRM) and collection management (CM) software fills the capability gap that will enable the current ISR and intelligence structures to provide the consistently high standard of multi-intelligence assessment.
