Task Order Manager (FAA)

Mikros Systems Corp.

Washington, DC


Noblis is a nonprofit science, technology, and strategy organization that brings the best of scientific thought, management, and engineering expertise to a wide range of government and industry clients in the areas of national security, intelligence, transportation, healthcare, environmental sustainability, and enterprise engineering.

Noblis’ Federal Civilian Solutions’ (FCS) mission is to advance and protect our federal civilian government’s infrastructure, capabilities and citizen services through the delivery of applied science, lifecycle engineering, data analytics, and digital transformation solutions. Our investments in technology, transformation, and talent enable us deliver transformative capabilities that fundamentally shift the way our civilian government delivers its services and solutions. Our team is rapidly growing across the civil sector and we are seeking a highly qualified leader to join our team.




With the expected growth in air traffic operations and our aging infrastructure, the FAA

continues the task of modernizing and transforming the NAS to meet the future demands of Air Traffic. The vehicle to accomplish this is called the System Engineering and Technical Innovation Solutions (SETIS) contract.  The overarching objectives for the future remain the same — maximizing airspace capacity with more sophisticated and seamlessly integrated information about the future position of aircraft at a given time — while maintaining the safest air travel possible.


Air traffic controllers already have better information to track and separate aircraft safely

and efficiently. Pilots have more aeronautical, traffic, and weather information inside the

cockpit. Airlines fly faster, more direct routes to get passengers to their destinations more

quickly while burning less fuel and producing fewer emissions. The FAA is on target to meet their original high-level objectives for NextGen by 2025. By that time, major NextGen transformational systems will be in place, and the FAA expects to achieve additional individual benefits by leveraging NextGen capabilities all along the way. Beyond that date, the FAA will continue to accrue benefits through enterprise-level advanced applications, additional aircraft equipage, and full workforce adoption of a time-based management system.


Working closely with stakeholders, the FAA invested in research and pre-implementation work to determine the feasibility of advanced concepts and their associated benefits. In what continues to be reflected is the dynamic nature of the NAS. The FAA must accommodate new entrants such as unmanned aircraft and commercial space vehicles, as well as address evolving challenges such as cybersecurity and NAS sustainment and resiliency. NextGen Portfolios are laid out in the NextGen Implementation Plan and include: improved surface operations; improved approaches and low-visibility operations; improved multiple runway operations; performance based navigation; time-based flow management; collaborative air traffic management; separation management; on-demand NAS information; environment and energy; system safety management; NAS infrastructure; and still ensuring our leadership position in managing the safest and most efficient air transportation system in the world.

The objective of this contract is to provide a broad range of research, service analysis, strategic planning, systems engineering (SE), technical, financial, and programmatic support services, and other aviation related support services, that will enable the FAA to accomplish its NAS, Mission Support, and other aviation related mission objectives.
