MIT Lincoln Laboratory Systems Administrator in Lexington, Massachusetts

The Embedded and Open Systems Group develops advanced algorithm, hardware, and software technologies and applies these enabling technologies to signal and image processing, knowledge extraction, and decision support applications and systems. The expertise in the group spans hardware architecture (VLSI application-specific integrated circuits, field-programmable gate arrays, parallel signal processors), software engineering (open systems, portability, middleware, high-level programming models, distributed systems), program optimization (runtime and language), and the implementation of classification and anomaly detection algorithms (image processing, signal processing, graph analysis). The combination of multidisciplinary skills allows for co-design and co-optimization of advanced hardware, processor, and software architectures and algorithm technology. The group works collaboratively with other groups within the Laboratory and organizations across the nation to develop high-performance prototypes of advanced sensor, communication, and exploitation systems.
