JOB DESCRIPTIONThe Space Systems Analysis and Test Group is conducting system studies and developing analysis tools to simulate the ability of radar, Passive RF, and optical sensors to detect and track satellites, as a function of sensor capabilities, geometry, and satellite characteristics. The Group also builds space related hardware and plans and conducts experiments to collect data in support of the system analysis studies. The successful candidate will support the Group activities in the above mentioned areas.
Will work in a team environment to study a broad range of technical questions of importance to the U.S. use of space. Technical areas include U.S. space situational awareness, space based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and space vehicle survivability. Work involves data analysis, mathematical modeling and software simulation of space systems, including space vehicles and their subsystems as well as radars, optical sensors and integrated networks for surveillance of the space environment.
Experience in one or more of the following areas is highly desired: development and conduct of sensor data collection experiments, active engineering participation in a hardware development project for a space surveillance sensor or space system, analysis of large data sets, detailed performance modeling of sensor systems, development or refinement of signal/image processing algorithms, mathematical modeling of complex systems (particularly as related to astrodynamics), development and application of estimation techniques (particularly as related to astrodynamics), or systems analysis/engineering.
The successful candidate will have an MS in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or Aerospace Engineering. In lieu of an MS degree a BS degree in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics or Aerospace Engineering with 3 to 5 years of directly related experience in space systems analysis will be considered. Must have demonstrated good written and communication skills. MATLAB, C, Unix and Java desired. Experience with C++, and XML are useful.
