Sandia National Laboratories' Integrated Military Systems Pathfinder Technologies group needs a controls engineer to support the research and development of autonomous sensing and flight systems. As a successful candidate for this job, you will conceptualize, design, implement, and test controls algorithms for multi-platform autonomous sensors. The sensors perform object detection, tracking and recognition; navigation and geolocation; motion control; sensor cueing, tasking and scheduling; and communications. You will work with leading experts in sensors, signal processing, machine learning, and control systems; within the Group, throughout Sandia's diverse organizations, and with partners from the US Department of Defense and private industry. The successful candidate will work as an expert in advanced control systems; and build on his/her competency in flight dynamics or aerodynamics, satellite navigation, sensor systems (e.g. radar/lidar, RF, infrared, optical, inertial, electromagnetic, etc), servo-actuators, algorithm development, and programming. The Group/teams will also benefit from the candidate's expertise in one or more of the following: sensor tasking, sensor fusion, signal/image processing, computer vision, target detection, signature matching, pattern recognition, or artificial intelligence. Occasional travel may be required.
Ideally, your background will also include some of the following:
