I want to be a Space Cowboy, and repair space fences.

I’m not officially retired, I’m just not getting any unemployment checks anymore, but I still download job postings and occasionally make calls or email if something “in my line” shows up.

Today I saw this…

Space Fence Information Assurance EngineerJacobs Technology – MA-Bedford – Posted: 3/10/2013

OK, I’ve got to inquire about this one.

We have an immediate need for an Information Assurance Engineer to support the US Air Force Space Fence program at Hanscom AFB in Bedford, MA. Responsibilities include:

  • Provide support to ensure full integration of IA into all phases of acquisition, upgrade, and modification programs, including design, development, testing, fielding, operation, and sustainment, including DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation (C&A) Process (DIACAP) compliance.
  • Encompass the full range of IA and information security processes, procedures, functions, and security plus certification to reviewing data, maintaining/implementing and compliance notification of required IAVAs, NOTAMs and information security posture.
  • Support government efforts to establish, control, define and maintain technical baselines to establish consistency of products’ attributes to ensure robust information sharing, situational awareness, and meet operational, interoperability and supportability requirements, security accreditation and technical milestone documentation.
  • Ensure C&A documentation is submitted correctly and on the required milestone schedule; acting as the program representative and action officer for the Enterprise Information Technology Data Repository (EITDR), ensuring all inputs are timely and correctly-loaded; ensuring FISMA compliance is accurately documented; reviewing equipment change proposals (ECP) to ensure that any system security issues are addressed before the ECP is signed/sent to the Configuration Control Board (CCB); collaborating with the test lead for Certification Test and Evaluation (CT&E) and the ST&E.

Wild guess, they want someone to fill out government paperwork. And smile.

I can do that.
