Job Descriptiontop

The Staff Engineer Research Development will lead and participate in multi-disciplinary, collaborative teams and contribute to the development of novel sensing solutions and surveillance technologies. The development cycle will include the integration of data collection experiments and cutting-edge exploitation algorithms into both embedded and non-embedded platforms. Potential solutions will be verified against live sensor data. Sensor types span all domains and include active/passive radar, electro-optic/infrared imaging systems, and sonar.

Duties will include the development of signal and image processing algorithms for exploitation of conventional and advanced concept sensor data in geospatial contexts. Resulting algorithms may be integrated into state-of-the-art software products that could potentially run on multi-core, multi-purpose processing architectures, embedded processors, FPGAs, GPUs, or other emerging technologies.

Additional tasks include defining software and system interfaces, system integration and testing, and field support of experiments and demonstrations. Work products include written reports, presentations, and project proposals. Occasional travel for meetings and data collections may be required.

Basic Qualifications:

BS with 14+, MS with 12+, or Ph.D. with 9+ years of experience in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Physics, Applied Mathematics, or related technical fields.

A demonstrated ability to perform innovative, applied research and develop sophisticated algorithms under computational or other resource constraints.

Experience with conventional software engineering principles, including code maintenance, coding standards, and version control.

Experience with algorithm implementations in MATLAB and software development in C, C++, Objective C, Java, and/or Python.

Willingness and ability to obtain and maintain a Secret Level security clearance

Preferred Qualifications:

Proven expertise in ATRand Computer Vision.

Proven expertise in remote sensing, including active radar imaging and/or passive electro-optic and infrared imaging systems.

Proven experience with formulating innovative solutions to algorithm development, initiating and fostering client relationships, and executing projects in compliance with cost, schedule, and technical requirements.

Proven experience in developing rapid prototype solutions from concept to design, implementation, initial testing, and integration.

Proven experience with presenting and speaking at customer demonstrations, symposia, and conferences.

Proven experience with open source computer vision and machine learning libraries (e.g., OpenCV and Caffe), Unix/Linux operating systems, and multi-threaded/parallel computing is of additional benefit.
