About Bae Systems

Job Description

BAE Systems is looking for a Senior Principal Scientist to lead programs in research and development of advanced electro-optic and infra-red (EO/IR) sensors. In this role, you will lead cutting-edge imaging research solving real-world problems to keep our country safe!

Who we are:

The BAE Systems' Sensor Technology (ST) directorate is a leading multidisciplinary R&D department dedicated to meeting critical U.S. military needs. ST is the hardware arm in R&D for emerging analog-digital sensors, embedding signal processing engines into the next generation of digital camera technology. We implement this for all of BAE Systems North America, yet it runs more like an entrepreneurial firm. It's the best of both worlds--combining a small-company feel, in a research laboratory setting, with access to a large company's technology transition paths, customer base, and other resources. ST executes a variety of scientific R&D efforts for the Department of Defense (DoD). Join us for amazing R&D challenges and work on revolutionary sensor innovations that makes a direct real-world impact!

What we offer:

* Exciting ASIC and IR camera research
* Exceptional teammates
* Opportunities to learn and grow
* A fun workplace, excellent benefits, and every other Friday off

Focus on the following technologies:

Multispectral, programmable EO and IR Imaging Sensors

* Concepts for hybridized IR detectors with custom ASIC chips
* Multispectral EO-IR, LIDAR architecture definitions
* Exploration of I/O capabilities up to Terabit scale
* New low-level FPGA-like programmability
* System partitioning and optimization based on mission understanding

Who you are:

We are looking for an experienced Senior Principal Scientist to work all phases of research - identification of emerging opportunities, developing novel internal research, identifying investment roadmaps, proposal development, research execution and team lead - for cutting-edge multimodal camera R&D efforts. This will include the development of new and existing customer relationships at DARPA, NVESD, AFRL, and the broader DoD community in areas relating to new EO/IR system architectures. The ideal leader will be working with signal and image processing experts to implement low-level functions on the next generation of sensors. Additionally you will:

* Generate state-of-the-art ideas and leading proposals in advanced scientific solutions
* Implement research involving complex sub-systems often involving multiple disciplines
* Investigate partitioning complex algorithms between hardware, firmware and software
* Author external publications.
* Guide project tasks for small to medium groups (1-10)

This position will be based in our Lexington MA office. The position will entail approximately 10% travel to customer sites.
