“All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible.”
– William Faulkner

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. 

This is a cooperative network.  That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.  When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share.

If you are seeking employment and want to pitch yourself before hiring managers in the defense industry, send me (lundquist989@cs.com) your pitch and I’ll post, one at a time (so there might be a queue, but there is no queue now) and always first. 

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address?  Don't forget to change your DEFCON – 1 subscription.  To unsubscribe, send a blank e-mail from the old account to DCO-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then a blank e-mail from your new account to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

***  CNA/CSS Book Event 11 May: Normandy Amphib Ops Coalition Planning

CNA's Center for Strategic Studies (CSS) invites you and your colleagues 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
Allied invasion of Normandy-Operation Neptune.  The author will comment 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
Institute Press. 

If you and/or your colleagues plan to attend, please fill out the
attached registration form and return it electronically, or by fax or
mail, as the directions indicate.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Chris Yung at 703-824-2119 or

***  From Rich Gano:

I am looking for a replacement for me at work. I am semi-retired as of
January this year. That means until we can find a relief for me on acoustic trials, I am going to have to continue to be a ship-rider on FFG, DDG, CG, and the occasional carrier and other assorted vessels during acoustic trials in Bahamian waters off Andros Island. We go there several times a year for a week or two at a time. When not there, we are here in Panama City, FL in the office analyzing acoustic trial results.

The words below are what the boss put out for a corporate release, but what we really need is somebody who can use a computer to conn a ship through a series of Williamson turns passing 200 yards from a sound boat while maintaining communications on three radio circuits. The candidate needs to be trainable in PRAIRIE and Masker systems, not afraid to climb on and off ships in the middle of the night, carry his share of several hundred pounds of gear, and knowledgeable in the use of EXCEL and Word. An ex- or retired naval officer or even a sharp merchant service guy would probably be a good candidate.

Pass this on to anybody who might be interested or know of somebody who is.

3.)  Acoustic Analyst and Field Engineer, ManTech International, Panama City, FL

“The Panama City Florida office of ManTech International provides
engineering and technical support to the US Navy in the area of surface ship underwater acoustic silencing. Of primary concern is the radiated acoustic testing of current and future naval combatants and the acoustic impact from own ship noise on the performance of large sonar’s such as the AN/SQS-53/56 and the AN/SQR-19.

In continuing support to the Naval Undersea Warfare Center and the Naval Surface Warfare Center, the Panama City office has an opening for a Staff Analyst – Systems.  The position provides support to the Surface Ship Radiated Noise Measurement (SSRNM) and Fleet Sonar Self Noise (FSSN) programs.  The position will primarily deal with the preparation of, and participation in, the analysis of radiated and sonar self noise acoustic information obtained from US Naval ships. Shipboard support during the conduct of acoustic tests and the maintenance / modifications of various program related websites and databases are required.  Experience with AN/SQS-53/56 and AN/SQR-19 sonar systems and/or a naval ship handling background is beneficial. A degree in a science / engineering / computer field or demonstrated current pursuit desirable. US Citizenship required.

Applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.
Additionally physical requirements to support travel / work aboard naval ships of 1-2 weeks every 4-6 months exist.
