Jeffery A. Jones

Senior Manager

Mr. Jones opened and has led Metron’s Crystal City Office since 2006. The office supports nearly all Navy commands in the Pentagon (OPNAV) responsible for developing the Navy’s budget (OPNAV N1, N2/6, N4, and N8), as well as several organizations at the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), including CAPE SAC, CAPE NFD, and AT&L. This office also supports a wide range of DoD system, concept, and M&S development commands such as the Navy’s Executive Agent for Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN), the Marine Corp’s MCCDC Operations Analysis Division, and the Air Force’s C2 Integration Center (AFC2IC). Example efforts include AOAs for the next-gen Protected Satellite Communications System, and the Joint Aerial Layer Network. In all of these efforts the office provides decision support using and developing a wide variety of tools and techniques for producing objective analysis, and system engineering products. The majority of these efforts resulted in products supporting major policy, budget, and system tradeoff decisions made by the DoD.


Mr. Jones led all aspects of Metron's C4ISR support to OPNAV N61, N81 and N70 from 2000-2005. He managed the design and execution of campaign analysis for both POM06 and PR07. He worked with the Navy to develop the Navy's planned C4ISR architecture for 2012 and 2020. He supported all C4ISR analysis accomplished by N81/N00X including analysis briefed to CNO, SECNAV, and SECDEF.


With Jeff Monroe of Metron, Mr. Jones led all aspects of the NSS software development effort since program inception in 1995. He is a co-architect of the NSS software architecture. He managed a Metron team of approximately ten software developers and interfaced with a Metron team of Naval operations analysts. Mr. Jones interfaced with Government/Navy/subcontractor representatives at SPAWAR, CINCPACFLT, CNO N6, and other Government/ Industry sites. He led the design and implementation of all core NSS C4ISR model representation capabilities. He had a lead role in the design and development of the Expeditionary Logistics Support System (EXLOGSS) for ONR's Logistics Future Naval Capabilities (FNC) program. In 2000, with Lockheed Martin, Mr. Jones co-developed two NSS variants used in major industry acquisition programs. He designed the interface used to integrate NSS with GCCS and LAWS in 1998.


Mr. Jones has provided direct support to the Government relating to the application of NSS to operational exercises and wargames, experiments, and studies and analyses. This support work has been conducted at numerous Government, Industry, and operational sites including extended periods onboard Naval combatants and at ashore command facilities. This specifically includes support to numerous JTFEX's, FBE's, Global Wargames, laboratory HLA federations, and numerous contracted studies. In 1998 he supported Coastal Systems Station in the development of scenario-based CONOPS for DDG-51 and the Space Missile Command in development of Space Evaluation and Assessment System (SEAS).
He was a leading member of a small team of Metron software developers who implemented the Composite Warfare Model (CWM) for Northrop-Grumman Corporation. In 1994 CWM was selected by CINCPACFLT to serve as the starting point for the Naval Simulation System (NSS) design and development effort.
