Job Description

:

Radar system analysis and design engineers in the Airborne ISR Analysis & Applications department aid in developing state\-of\-the\-art remote sensing systems\. They function as members of teams which design, implement, and optimize processing algorithms and systems for embedded, real\-time environments that include Synthetic Aperture Radar \(SAR\); Ground Moving Target Indication \(GMTI\); Coherent Change Detection \(CCD\); Fuzing; and Tagging, Tracking and Locating \(TTL\)\.

The Radar ISR Applications & Analysis Department is looking for a early to mid\-career professional analysts:

+ Develop and integrate advanced signal processing algorithms for image formation, detection, tracking, resilience, or target/signal exploitation;
+ Predict and characterize radar system and subsystem performance and error contributions;
+ Experiment with research and operational systems to test, evaluate, troubleshoot, and improve designs and developments;
+ Study trade spaces for the design and specification of systems to meet application needs;
+ Analyze system requirements, capabilities, and functionality using high level languages;
+ Contribute to end\-to\-end innovation including proposal writing for research and development concepts, as well as the execution and documentation of research; and
+ Report findings to internal and external customers, stakeholders, or the radar community, as appropriate\.

Required:

+ Requires a bachelor’s and master’s degree in relevant STEM discipline\.

- The requirement for a STEM Master’s degree can be waived for candidates with a bachelor’s in a relevant STEM discipline and engineering or scientific experience and/or achievements that demonstrate the knowledge, skills and ability to perform independent research and development\.
+ Experience with software tools for developing algorithms and modeling or analyzing systems\.
+ Demonstrated abilities in signal processing and physics\-based, data\-driven, or mathematical analysis, modeling, and algorithm development for advanced radar systems\.

Desired:

+ An advanced degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering or Physics\.
+ Good technical communications skills \-\- in conversation, presentations, and in writing\.
+ Team player with strong analytical and problem\-solving skills\.
+ Understanding of and experience with system engineering as a process\.
+ Recent experience with embedded software \(FPGA programming, interpolation kernels, waveform design\)\.
+ MATLAB software experience\.
+ Experience with radar system hardware \(RF and antennas\)\.
+ Experience with radar phenomenology analysis \(electromagnetics, propagation, target scattering\)\.
+ Experience conducting research and development\.
