Modeling and Analysis Developer - Project Lead - EOSL

ID: 495045
Type: Researchers
Location: Atlanta, GA
Categories: Algorithm Development, Countermeasures, IR, Machine Learning, Missile Warning Systems, Modeling/Simulation, Project/Program Management, RF, Sensors/Optics, Signal Processing, Software Development/Design

Job Description

This job is for a full-time research faculty position in the Electronic Warfare Modeling and Analysis Division (EWMAD) within the Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory (EOSL) at Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). Responsibilities include modeling, simulation and analysis as well as developing innovative solutions for EO/IR algorithms to support Electronic Warfare (EW) research.
EWMAD performs modeling, simulation, and analysis in support of various Electro-Optical Counter Measures, Physics and Missile Warning Systems EW studies, including aircraft self-protection, countermeasures, scene generation, laser warning, scattering, propagation and turbulence, and EO/IR signature modeling. Our team has a diversity of backgrounds and skill sets, and a typical project team is composed of programmers, EO/IR engineers Physicists and Countermeasures experts. While our work is applied research, it runs the gamut from "blue sky" concepts for the future battlespace to modeling-based solutions to be fielded on today's aircraft.

Job Duties:

  • Development of simulations models of EO/IR/RF systems and phenomenology
  • Management of simulated and field collected datasets for machine learning training and evaluation
  • Design and execution of experiments using EO/IR/RF simulations
  • Creation of presentations and documents of the technical results of system performance
  • Creation of presentations and documentation of the programmatic plans
  • Configuration management of software, experiments and reports.
  • Manage project activities including project initiation, planning, tracking and deliverables.
  • Prepare qualitative and quantitative reports of task progress and outcomes
  • Maintaining knowledge base including experiment results, how-to guides, tutorials, reference materials, project status, project deliverables, and meeting minutes in a suitable tool such as Confluence or GIT or other tools
