The Advanced Sensors and Techniques Group operates the Lincoln Space Surveillance Complex (LSSC) that comprises of the Millstone deep-space satellite tracking radar, the Haystack Ultra-wideband Satellite Imaging Radar (HUSIR) and the Haystack Auxiliary imaging radar (HAX).  All these radar are remotely controlled from the Lexington Space Situational Awareness Center (LSSAC) which serves as a data processing and fusion node for the LSSC and other ground and space-based space surveillance sensors.  Together, the LSSC and LSSAC serve as an operational test bed for space situational awareness technologies and provide access to a rich set of radar and optical data.  The group's current research and development efforts focus on problems such as tracking  and identification of newly launched satellites, tracking and discrimination of satellites in geosynchronous clusters, automated radar image exploitation, close approach monitoring and collision warning, applications of mullti-sensor data fusion, and decision support.  The group is also developing a net-centric, service-oriented information system.

An Electrical Engineer is needed to participate in all aspects of electronic/RF hardware design, fabrication and testing in support of radar system development. This will include upgrades & maintenance of three large space surveillance radars in Westford, Massachusetts as well as novel radar system designs and deployments. Tasks could include: digital/analog/RF electronic board/subsystem design, signal-processing, real-time embedded system programming/firmware. Software tasks will involve programming in C and C++ on microprocessors to multi-core servers using the Linux operating system.

 

Position Requirements:

BS in Electrical Engineering, with a minimum of 2 years of experience working with embedded electronic/software design. Candidate must have strong written and oral communication skills. Familiarity with FPGA development tools/simulation, electronic design tools and test equipment, as well as the Linux operating system is highly desirable. Experience with RF design and testing is also desirable.
