KBR (formerly SGT) is helping our customer to build and staff a Center of Excellence for remotely sensed data quality. This workwill be located at the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, SD. Building on over 47 years of operating the Landsat series of satellites, the EROS Calibration and Validation Center of Excellence (ECCOE) will work with all types of land remote sensing sensors and platforms, bringing the expertise of our team to the challenges of maintaining the superb calibration of the satellites and sensors operated by our customer as well as other sensors nationally and internationally. The team will work to assess the characteristics and utility of data from multiple satellites and airborne platforms and work to develop methods and tools that enhance the interoperability of data from a wide variety of sources. The remote sensing world is growing rapidly around the world. Come be part of this exceptional team working with all areas of the remote sensing community!
We are looking for a mid- to senior-level Image Scientist/Engineer with experience in measuring and improving the accuracy of remote sensing imagery to work within the ECCOE team to assess the performance of remote sensing systems, including processed higher-level products. This work will span the spectrum from ultraviolet to thermal infrared. This work will include developing and executing methods for validation and monitoring of the above. This position will support the EROS Calibration and Validation Center of Excellence (ECCOE).
Education: Minimum of a Master of Science Degree in Engineering, Physics, Earth Science, or fields related to remote sensing systems required. A Doctorate/PhD is a strong plus.
Experience: Five or more years working with multispectral and hyperspectral remotely sensed data.
