JOB DESCRIPTION

The Space Systems Analysis and Test Group is conducting system studies and developing analysis tools to simulate the ability of radar 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 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, 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 a BS in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Aerospace Engineering with 0-4 years experience . Must have demonstrated good written and communication skills and evidence of self motivation. MATLAB knowledge is required. Experience with C++, and XML are useful. Knowledge of C, Unix and Java is desired.

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
