Job Description


We are seeking an Intern Year Round \- R&D Grad

We are seeking a creative, motivated year round intern who is interested in the fields of computer science/ computer vision/ image processing and supporting the challenge of developing and implementing unique computer vision and imaging analytics solutions for a wide variety of tests carried out in challenging environments, including explosive, fireball, underwater, rocket sled track, and cable pull\-down tests\. You should enjoy working in both the laboratory and field and have strong technical analysis skills\.

On any given day, you may be called on to:

+ Write code to extract various image measurements from test data
+ Implement existing computer vision algorithms into practical & modular tools that enable batch processing of test data for quantitative analytics
+ Use various statistical and signal processing libraries / tools to process & filter extracted measurements
+ Write tools to create engaging data fusion products to visualize measurements with imagery
+ Work with test collection teams to ensure field measurements work well with imaging tools
+ Find creative yet practical solutions to measurement problems that arise in the field
+ Assist with aggregating and statistically summarizing data generated from digital video data sets
+ Assist with computing and reporting uncertainties for imaging measurements
+ Assist with developing unique data fusion products using scientific video data sets to create impactful visualizations of imaging measurements, time\-varying 2D and 3D models, and instrumentation data
+ Assist with developing reusable code libraries to support data fusion visualization, imaging analysis, imaging calibration, new imaging techniques, and image acquisition
+ Be involved with activity level work indoors and outdoors

In this role, you will work with a high performing and cohesive team including electrical, systems, mechanical, and optical engineers\. Our work includes measurement R&D, electrical design, systems engineering, optical measurements, data collection, and data analysis\. Tests are carried out at Sandia and occasionally at off\-site facilities, and range from large\-scale experiments that may involve months of planning and preparation to smaller tests that are often completed in a matter of days\. We use systems engineering principles and processes to ensure we deliver high quality and safe engineering solutions for high consequence tests of national importance\.
