Responsibilities include but are not limited to:  
  • Perform exploitation and reverse-engineering on IED electronic circuit boards and develop device characterization. 
  • Identify, capture, analyze and characterize electronic devices and components from IED circuit boards for arming, firing and source characteristics. 
  • Capture, characterize and identify IED electrical/electronic RF receiver and transmitter modules and circuit board characteristics, operating frequencies, and power. 
  • Specify component nomenclatures and research to identify resources and specifications, reverse engineering the devices if required.  
  • Analyze recovered electronic components including switching circuits and power sources. 
  • Identify electronic IED components visually, conduct research and provide information, and develop accurate schematics of devices. 
  • Analyze, demodulate, and decode signals in order to extract intelligence data using standardized demodulation and decoding tools and techniques for commonly encountered signals. 
  • Utilize laboratory measuring equipment, spectrum analyzers, signal generators, and associated instrumentation to perform exploitation of the devices and materials.  
  • Perform Electronic Data Recovery (EDR) of logical and physical data on cell phones and other media storage devices using hardware/software tools including Cellebrite UFED, XRY, FTK and other forensic tools and analyze EDR files to recover data that may be of investigative or intelligence value. 
  • Document all exploitation results in all required outputs such as component lists, circuit layouts, mechanical drawings, or in tools like WEAT. 
  • The devices shall be characterized in WEAT to document and compare against other IEDs and IED components from other events or other theaters. 
  • Assist in the creation of technical/scientific reports documenting the results of exploitation and analysis. 
  • Responsible for reporting and briefing critical finds to both military and DoD civilian leadership. 
  • Support development of countermeasures for electronic devices/signals. 
  • Provide information to assist in profiling and signature analysis. 
  • Produce storyboards and technical reports on captured data. 
  • Maintain and document chain of custody of items and data. 
Minimum Education and Experience Requirements:  
  • Five (5) years of experience in a radio frequency (RF) test environment and characterizing electronic components for intelligence products and reporting. 
  • Five (5) years of experience performing benchtop RF measurements (e.g. occupied bandwidth, average power, pulse width, etc.) using signal generators, spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes and other equipment. 
  • Experience with testing and characterizing electrical components of IEDs and/or Software Defined Radios (SDR). 
  • Experience with standard operating procedures for the storage, testing and transport of samples and components found in captured materials. 
  • Demonstrated ability to produce technical reports on findings and develop device profiles. 
  • Must be able to obtain and maintain a Department of Defense (DoD) Top-Secret security clearance.  Note: US Citizenship is required to obtain and maintain a Department of Defense (DoD) Top-Secret security clearance 
  • Must be able to obtain US Passport
