MIT Lincoln Laboratory Systems Analyst in Lexington, Massachusetts
The ISR Systems and Architectures Group performs analysis and experimentation to develop concepts for filling critical gaps in U.S. Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. This work includes evaluating mission needs by considering future operational scenarios, and developing options for addressing these needs through advanced technologies and novel system concepts. Studies within the group cover a broad range of technical areas, including advanced sensor systems, new platforms, communications, navigation solutions, and data exploitation approaches. The analyses performed by the group can lead to experimental test campaigns to collect data to verify modeling results and have also generated opportunities for hardware and software prototyping at Lincoln Laboratory. The analysis topics and questions are typically posed by senior leaders in the Department of Defense, and the work of the group is briefed out widely to help inform critical decisions and impact future acquisitions.
The Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Systems and Architectures Group is seeking a Systems Analyst to perform modeling and performance assessment of ISR and tactical systems. Specific areas of study include sensor systems, communications systems, navigation systems, and aircraft studies.
The candidate will work on a broad range of problems related to ISR and tactical system design and performance assessment. The candidate will develop mathematical models for system performance based on physics and engineering, implement the models in a programming language (e.g., MATLAB), and use the models to answer key technical questions. New systems, architectures, and operating concepts will be evaluated for mission utility by considering potential future operational scenarios and threat environments. The work will require an ability to understand a variety of sensing modalities, platform options, communication systems, navigation approaches, and data exploitation techniques. Activities involve systems analysis, data analysis, physics-based modeling, and software simulation, while working as a member of a small technical team.
Requirements: M.S. in Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, Aeronautics/Astronautics, or a related technical field. In lieu of a M.S., a Bachelor's with 3-5 years experience will be considered. A minimum GPA of 3.5 is desired.
Desired Skills: The principal skills required are the ability to quickly learn new technical areas and apply that knowledge effectively to solve challenging problems. Excellent communication skills, including the ability to clearly present technical concepts to a wide spectrum of audiences, are also required.
