MIT Lincoln Laboratory Systems Administrator in Lexington, Massachusetts

The Airborne Radar Systems and Techniques Group develops radar technology solutions for defense-related intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The group develops and prototypes new capabilities at the system and subsystem level, leveraging advances in RF and signal processing technology, to provide new capabilities against emerging threats. Challenging problems are analyzed in a comprehensive manner by studying the underlying physics, current and emerging signal processing and hardware technology, experimental data, and system operating concepts in order to innovate next-generation systems. The group leverages highly-integrated RF subsystems, processing techniques (including MIMO, as waveform design, adaptive processing), and electronic protection to enhance detection and tracking in challenging geophysical and signal environments. The group's programs typically entail phenomenology-based data collection, data-driven algorithm development, and culminate in field test and evaluation. Principal staff expertise in the group includes system engineering, digital signal processing, radar tracking and imaging, experimental physics, and hardware development and integration.
