Our client’s Control and Autonomous Systems Engineering Group is focused on the synthesis of dynamic and complex control and autonomous systems, from concept to realization, for a wide variety of prototypes. Work with multi-disciplinary teams to envision and create complex demonstration prototypes (primarily unmanned) and innovative solutions to challenging national security problems.
We are a dynamic group where learning new things and sharing knowledge is an important part of our culture. The Group works with every Division and has some sponsor-direct programs as well. Apply your expertise to a new domain or new mission area and help create first-time prototypes that move in every physical domain.
Research and development topics include one or more of the following: autonomous systems, guidance, navigation, non-linear or under-actuated control systems, estimation and feedback control algorithms such as PID controllers, Extended Kalman Filters, and Unscented Kalman Filters for dynamic pointing and tracking, inertial stabilization, embedded servo control systems, custom electronics development for advanced sensors, and mechanism and actuator control, artificial intelligence, including machine learning, Bayesian probability, modern feedback control and state estimation, computer vision, image processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and Markov decision processes.
We are looking for 2 talented engineers to contribute to research, prototyping, and verification efforts that integrate electrical systems, embedded systems, and software interfaces to meet challenging operational requirements.
Hands-on team-based experience, an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the topics above, and a highly skilled software engineering background are critical. Work may involve using tools such as Matlab and Simulink for algorithm development and simulation, Mentor Graphics for electronics development, and software development targeting both general purpose and real-time operating systems such as VxWorks, Xenomai, and real-time Linux.
Embedded system development. Knowledge of programing in an object-oriented language such as C++ / C# / Java, knowledge of scientific scripting programming such as matlab, VxWorks, Agile Development methodologies, experience with version control.
Matlab, Ruby, Git, experience with embedded communication protocols, experience using hardware-in-the-loop systems.
Worker will need to be local to MA for this job or committed to relocating for the start of the project. This person should expect to be onsite a few days out of each week. The specific number of days/week will flex depending on the stages of the project (while doing software development there will be more opportunity for remote, but when they are working with the hardware, there will be more onsite days).
Masters degree is a plus. The experience with space systems would be a huge asset as well.
