JOB DESCRIPTION

The Applied Space Systems Group develops environmental monitoring sensor systems for detecting and tracking natural and

man-made phenomena. As such, this group's activities include the extraction of target and feature information from airborne

and space-borne hyperspectral imagery; system support of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

environmental satellites in performance analysis and improvement of existing sensors and products; architecture definition

and sensor development support for the next-generation NOAA and other Government satellite systems; and chemical and agent

detection sensor and system development. Work includes system and architecture analysis, sensor hardware development, signal

processing, data analysis, and algorithm development.

The Applied Space Systems Group develops environmental monitoring electro-optical (EO) infrared (IR) and radiofrequency (RF) sensor systems for detecting and tracking natural and man-made phenomena. The Group's activities include the extraction of target and feature information from ground-level, airborne and space-borne imagery; system support of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) environmental satellites in performance analysis and improvement of existing sensors and products; architecture definition and sensor development support for the next-generation NOAA and NASA satellite systems, and environmental monitoring and chemical detection sensor and systems development. Work includes EO/IR and RF sensor design, system and architecture analysis, signal processing, data analysis, and algorithm development and refinement.



The successful candidate will support efforts to develop and integrate the next generation of civilian operational EO/IR sensing instrumentation and systems for weather applications, including high level trades on space system architectures. Experience in radiometry, instrument design, integration, and analysis of EO/IR systems is required. Candidate should have a strong physical understanding of atmospheric physics and detection processes. Understanding of space system architectures and algorithms for processing atmospheric imagery are preferred. Experience in microwave systems is also beneficial. Experience with Microsoft Office products and Matlab or IDL is necessary. Experience with C, C++, DOORS, and STK would also be beneficial. Candidate should have excellent written and oral communications and interpersonal skills. The ability to work in a team composed of both technical and non-technical members is critical.

Requirements:
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Astrophysics, Astronomy, or related areas is preferred. In lieu of a Ph.D., an MS with a minimum of 5 years of directly related experience will be considered.

Overview

Since 1951, when MIT Lincoln Laboratory was established to build the nation's first air defense system, the Laboratory has been applying advanced technology to solve problems critical to national security. Decade after decade, our people have envisioned incredible technology - and projects that start out as vital to national security often become just as vital to the everyday technology of the future. More than 700 patents have been granted for technologies developed by the Laboratory’s staff. And in the past two years, Lincoln Laboratory has been awarded eight R&D 100 Awards that recognize the year’s 100 most technologically significant innovations.

If you’d like to contribute to U.S. National security in an environment of incredible innovation, consider bringing your career to MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we are committed to realizing our vision of diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our enterprise. Due to the unique nature
