MITRE has a need for a full-time sensor systems engineer with an interest in systems modeling and analysis to work in the Sensor Systems & Battle Management, Command and Control (BMC2) department.
You will work as part of a small team focused on the modeling, simulation, and analysis of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems. You will support the effort to assess current and future system capabilities, identify improved applications and techniques, and ultimately recommend solutions. Efforts addressed by the department include: describing algorithm and system performance as a function of sensor data quality (including signal and noise phenomenology), characterizing system performance in order to clarify capabilities, identifying and addressing areas for improvement in sensor data processing, and the investigation of multi-sensor approaches for data fusion and system of systems collaboration and exploitation.
