POSITION SUMMARY

Based on NSF TRAMAN and identified vulnerabilities, there is a need to develop and execute the CITADEL PROTECT exercises to assess the integration of installation and Navy afloat assets berthed in Navy controlled CONUS and OCONUS ports. The primary focus needs to be on the effectiveness of AT C2 between the Installation and the berthed ships, alignment and synchronization of installation and afloat pre-planned responses, and current capability to detect, respond, neutralize and recover from a small boat, vehicle borne, Improvised Explosive Device (IED), and/or an insider threat attack.

CITADEL PROTECT exercises shall be designed to create a training environment that approximates a realistic operational environment by providing a trained aggressor force and incorporating blank fire and realistic scripted scenarios to replicate a real-world attack. Each event needs to be assessed to exacting standards.

Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will be needed to ensure that the data collection plan supports collection of observations and provides quantifiable data to support Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities and Policy (DOTMPLFP) solutions and/or mitigation strategies, as required.

In addition to CITADEL PROTECT requirements, Harbor Security Unit Training Assist Visits will be conducted to provide training on promulgated tactics, techniques and procedures, pre-planned responses and Standard Operating Procedures. Harbor Patrol Unit Training Assist Visits will include crew served weapons, use-of-force decision and comm between the coxswain and gunner training. The CITADEL PROTECT exercises and Harbor Patrol Unit Training Assist Visits will be conducted at Navy installations identified and prioritized by CNIC in consultation with Navy Fleet and Region Commanders.

This position supports CNIC N36 Training and Readiness Directorate's Major reoccurring exercises, to include CITADEL PACIFIC, CITADEL SHIELD, CITADEL PROTECT, and Training and Assist Visit. The exercises are designed to create a training environment that approximates a realistic operational environment by providing a trained aggressor force and incorporating the firing of blank ammunition in realistic scripted scenarios to replicate real word threats. Subject matter experts are required to assist in the development, conduct and assessment of exercises that supports collection of observations and provides quantifiable data to support Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities and Policy solutions and/or mitigations associated with Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection and physical security.
