The MITRE Corporation’s All-Domain Integration (ADI) Department (N163) supports development and delivery of integrated, agile mission capabilities that will enable the US and Coalition forces to operate at the speed of relevance. ADI’s focus is to (1) develop joint, all-domain operational concepts; (2) mature these concepts through realizable architectures; and (3) transition the developed capabilities to the warfighter. This involves the near-term modernization of fielded capabilities and development of next generation warfighter operations in all phases of systems evolution: from concept exploration, through experimentation and fielding.

To achieve this broad set of outcomes for our Government Sponsors, the ADI seeks staff that have knowledge or interest in several related areas of expertise, including Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) operations and architectures; Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) integration and exploitation; end-to-end kill chain integration and assessment; digital infrastructure, and platform integration. These domain competencies are complemented by a variety of technical skills which enable program execution and include systems engineering, modeling & simulation, and software and hardware prototyping. MITRE and the ADI department work hand-in-hand with Government sponsors and the warfighter to serve as technical advisors bringing domain experience and state-of-the-art solutions to their most demanding operational challenges. Successful candidates will join our team and immediately begin tackling emerging, high-priority challenges in the areas of all-domain operations, JADC2 and Advanced Battle Management Systems (ABMS).
