Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career
Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring
job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global
defense, aerospace and security industry. 

Laura and I will be traveling to Florence and Tuscany. There will be now
DEFCON 1 newsletter next week.

This is a cooperative network.  That means everyone's participation is
required to provide job opportunities to share.  When you learn about a

If you are seeking employment and want to pitch yourself before hiring
managers in the defense industry, send me (lundquist989@cs.com) your

is no queue now) and always first.

to an UNCLAS panel discussion and book event at CNA on May 11, 2007,
0830-1330. 

The book – Gators of Neptune:  Naval Amphibious Planning for the
Normandy Invasion – was authored by CNA/CSS research analyst Dr.
Christopher Yung. 

The book tells the story of cooperation and at times, discord, between
the U.S. and Royal Navies as they planned the naval portion of the

on what he believes Neptune's lessons hold for today's joint and
combined military operations.

We have also invited a panel of speakers, all eminent historians, to
comment on the significance of the book, both in historical terms and
what the significance may be for today's military and coalition
operations.  The panel includes:
 
      ●  Dr. Robert Love, U.S. Naval Academy, an expert on the
Royal
Navy during the Second World War and on the Royal Navy's role in the
Normandy Invasion

      ●  Dr. Randy Papadopoulos, Naval Historical Center, who
specializes in the U.S. Navy during the Second World War

      ●  Dr. Roger Cirillo, Association of the United States Army
(AUSA), an expert on the history of the Normandy Invasion and the Army
in the European Theater of Operations during the Second World War 

The planned agenda is attached, along with directions to CNA.  Hors
d'oeuvres, and lunch will be served, followed by a social hour and
book signing overseen by the book's publisher, the Naval

Qualifications 

We seek a trained and experienced strategic planner who can provide our
client, one of the most dynamic and mission critical defense agencies,
with a strong capability for strategic analysis in support of the
development and implementation of an Army-wide Battle Command strategy. 
Our candidate will have, or rapidly establish, a thorough understanding
of Joint and Army Battle Command issues, equipment fielding plans,
command and control architecture, the Army acquisition process, the
Army's Future Force, and the Army Campaign Plan. Our strategic planner
will be able to analyze national and defense policy and strategy to
develop and articulate recommendations to senior civilian and military
decision makers.  Our strategic planner will also be able to assess
Joint, Army, and multinational requirements, capabilities, and plans and
develop strategic and operational Battle Command concepts.
 
Responsibilities 

This is a contractor staff position working onsite with our client.  You
can expect the place of duty to be located in National Capital Region in
the Washington DC area.  Most of the work occurs on site at the
Pentagon, Crystal City, and Alexandria, VA.  You may also be tasked to
work at temporary locations at Fort McNair, Fort Myer, and Fort Belvoir,
Virginia.  The nature of the duties for this position requires a Secret
security clearance.

We need our strategic planner to lay out the requirements, products, and
milestones required to publish the Battle Command strategy.  Our planner
must identify near and mid term supporting and supported activities and
provide recurring status briefings to the Battle Command and Army
Campaign Plan forums. Our planner will draft a DCS G-3/5/7 Battle
Command Operations Order and modify associated documentation.  Our
planner must be able to integrate Battle Command issues across domains,
and be able to build consensus amongst disparate groups.  Our planner is
expected to be proactive and be able to work within broad constraints.

You can expect to operate effectively in high-pressure senior level
staff assignments where guidance may be minimal and close interaction
with senior level decision makers is frequent.  We expect you to
demonstrate the ability to remain poised, confident, and honest in
dealing with senior leaders during time sensitive high-pressure
situations.  You must be able to state and defend positions and argue
logically and persuasively.

Our strategic planner will communicate clearly, concisely, accurately,
and persuasively (both verbally and in writing) concerning highly
technical, complex, or conceptual subjects to support senior leader
strategic decision making.  You must demonstrate proficiency with
Microsoft Office software particularly Word, Power Point, Excel, and
Outlook.  Proficiency with Access, Project, and Publisher is a definite
plus.

Our planner will apply analytically rigorous methods to develop
feasible, suitable, and acceptable innovative solutions to complicated
strategic challenges.  You will integrate and implement the capabilities
of automated and collaborative web-based analytical decision aids to
enhance the speed and accuracy of time sensitive staff work and
coordination. You will use both strategic and operational planning
frameworks (Campaign planning) to assist our client in planning a
synchronized Battle Command transition to future capabilities.

Our strategic planner will establish and utilize an effective
collaborative network of personal contacts within military staff
organizations and with other governmental departments and agencies and
non-governmental organizations in order to allow him/her the ability to
synchronize Battle Command initiatives both within the Army and within
the Department of Defense.  He/she must have the ability to incorporate
coalition and multi-national requirements and issues into planning Army
involvement in emerging Joint C2 requirements and capabilities.

This position requires that our strategic planner understand the
organization, structure, and doctrine/operating principals of the
institutional and operational Army and, more generally, that of the
other Services, as well as, DOD, the Joint staff, the combatant
commands, U.S. military alliances, and the U.S. Government; particularly
the distribution of authority, roles, missions, and functions, and
responsibilities engendered by the National Security Act of 1947, as
amended, and the Goldwater-Nichols Act.  Our planner should also
understand the integration of Army Battle Command capabilities,
particularly the integration of Joint and service planning, resources
(time, people, and dollars) and Battle Command systems at the strategic,
operational, and tactical levels of war.   It is a definite plus for our
strategic planner to have a broad understanding of the formal and
informal procedures and, particularly the JCIDS, acquisitions, and
budget processes, and evolving DOD business and capabilities portfolio
management initiatives.

We want our strategic planner to demonstrate highly developed analytical
and problem solving skills that allow our planner to rapidly
conceptualize and develop creative feasible solutions to complex
strategic challenges.  Our planner should have an ability to clearly and
concisely convey complicated conceptual or analytical material through
spoken and written means and in a manner that senior military and
civilian leaders can easily understand.  We want our planner to be
intellectually inquisitive, capable of rapidly understanding even the
most rapidly evolving complex situation and of mastering topics across
the spectrum of strategy related fields.  As important as the
intellectual inquisitiveness, is the ability to turn thought into action
to support the Army Battle Command vision. 
 
Find out just how far your skills will take you with Alion Science and
Technology.  Join us.  We offer competitive salaries and outstanding
benefit packages to full and half-time employees.

need for a technical writer for his company's requirements at FAA,
