MIT Lincoln Laboratory
JOB DESCRIPTIONThe Advanced Sensors and Techniques Group operates the Lincoln Space Surveillance Complex (LSSC) that comprises of the Millstone deep-space satellite tracking radar, the Haystack Ultra-wideband Satellite Imaging Radar (HUSIR) and the Haystack Auxiliary imaging radar (HAX). All these radars are remotely controlled from the Lexington Space Situational Awareness Center (LSSAC) which serves as a data processing and fusion node for the LSSC and other ground and space-based space surveillance sensors. Together, the LSSC and LSSAC serve as an operational test bed for space suituational awareness technologies and provide access to a rich set of radar and optical data. The group's current research and development efforts focus on problems such as tracking and identification of newly launched satellites, tracking and discrimination of satellites in geosynchronous clusters, automated radar image exploitation, close approach monitoring and collision warning, applications of multi-sensor data fusion, and decision support. The group is also developing a net-centric, service-oriented architecture that networks all of these capabilities together in an integrated information system.
Will work as part of a dynamic team to develop analysis systems and advanced exploitation capabilities for radar, electro-optical, metric and other sensor data types in support of Space Situational Awareness (SSA) needs.
Ten or more years of space surveillance network data exploitation software experience desired. Understanding of orbital dynamics is highly desirable. Requires M.S. in computer science, engineering or in a related field with 5 plus years experience. In lieu of an MS, a BS with 10 plus years experience will be considered. Proven ability to address a broad range of problems in a dynamic team environment and demonstration of communication and briefing skills are required. Some travel required.
