MIT Lincoln Laboratory
JOB DESCRIPTIONThere are currently more than 20,000 objects in Earth's orbit. Some of these objects are operational satellites performing critical civil, scientific, and military missions. Tracking, monitoring, controlling and defending these satellites is of key national interest. The Information Integration and Decision Support Group develops the mission critical decision support tools needed to perform key functions such as rapid event detection and dynamic scheduling of assets in order to develop courses of action for the Space Warfighter. The decision support tools are driven by integrating information from various sensors, sources, and systems.
The focal point of the group's activities resides in its BMC3 Analysis Testbed facility .It provides a real-time framework environment to ensure interoperability of several service-oriented-architecture (SOA) systems, to evaluate and operationalize the contributions of new sensors and sources, and to develop and assess the performance of new decision support algorithms using live data. In addition, it provides a simulation capability for Red/Blue exercises and event planning, operations, and training.
We are seeking a software architect to help us to continue to evolve of our system that will exploit data from Space and Ground Surveillance Systems. This work includes development of exploitation algorithms and frameworks for working this type of data. This candidate will be responsible for overseeing the work of a small team of developers. Candidates with large scale software experience in a Linux environment will be given special consideration.
PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Applied Mathematics is required. In lieu of a PhD, a Master's degree with 5 or more years of directly related experience will be considered. Experience with MATLAB, JAVA and web services desirable. Experience with data processing algorithms in astrodynamics, radar and image processing desirable.
