CACI International Database Engineer / 3D Modeler Lead in Orlando, Florida

Job Description


SE Core enables an interoperable Synthetic Environment for simulation and training programs. The SE Core Terrain & Model Generation Services (TMGS) focuses on delivering software and limited hardware to enable a common correlated Synthetic Environment for Warfighters to train for full spectrum operations. SE Core is to facilitate a common representation of the complex and uncertain world for Integrated Training Environment exercises to support focused unit training that approximates the changing contemporary operational environment. SE CORE is comprised of complementary efforts for developing the Synthetic Environment that facilitate fair fight interoperability for system and non-system TADSS. The program develops training terrain databases, models, and simulation architecture connectivity to meet Warfighter operational training requirements. The terrain and model development efforts provide non-proprietary, open format, and image generator independent Synthetic Environment deliverables. These efforts, linking current and future training devices/simulations, enable the Army to execute combined arms and joint training, as well as mission planning and rehearsals at home station and at deployed locations.
