The Homeland Protection Systems Group conducts systems analysis on a broad range of problems related to surface surveillance, force protection, and homeland defense. Activities include sensor and system modeling, mission requirements analysis, and architecture development. A variety of technologies are examined, including radar, optical, acoustic, biological, and chemical sensors. Modeling and the analysis of field measurements are used to quantify the ability of current and proposed technology to meet mission requirements. This work includes analysis, algorithm development, and field testing.
The candidate will support a number of critical mission areas within the Homeland Protection Systems Group by assisting in the architecture and implementation of distributed software systems. This work will entail the decomposition of loosely defined requirements into executable software tasks and implementation strategies. The candidate therefore must possess a broad skillset including familiarity with multiple languages, cross platform development, and a thorough understanding of current software engineering approaches, techniques, and third party tools. The candidate will be required to lead small software teams, develop novel program concepts, and may be required to travel on occasion to participate in demonstrations.
