Position Description

**Must be able to obtain Secret Clearance**

The Precision Engagement Systems Team located in St. Charles, MO is seeking a Senior Imaging Sensor Algorithm Engineer and Analyst to join some of the leading minds in industry to develop critical sensor/seeker solutions that will inspire you with their application, mathematical technology, and implementation. Our team is diverse and full of opportunities that will challenge you in new and intriguing ways, let you learn from a highly experienced foundation of team knowledge, and allow you to contribute from your unique experiences to expand the collective capability of the team.
We are engineers and technicians. Skilled scientists and thinkers. Bold innovators and dreamers. Join us, and build something better for yourself, for our customers, and for the world. Works under minimal direction. Work statement is a non-managerial role, non-leadership role. Regular and predicted attendance is required.

Position Responsibilities:
• Leads development and analysis of Imaging Sensor algorithms for navigation and guidance applications on Weapon systems.
• Contributes to a multi-level team as consultant in the test and issue resolution of sensor based algorithms across the portfolio of weapons applications.
• Leads development of trade studies, modeling, simulation and other forms of analysis to predict real-world behavior, impacts on system performance and to optimize design around complex requirements.
• Leads development and execution of critical tests to validate performance of designs to requirements.
• Contribute to a multi-level team with a deep theoretical and practical foundation for developing cutting-edge models, simulation tools, and algorithm strategies for systems using Infrared, Laser and Radar sensors and provide technical mentorship for early career engineers.
• Collect and review data from hardware-in-the-loop tests and flight test to measure/validate performance against design requirements.
• Evaluate candidate sensor systems to increase weapon or other airborne system capabilities, decrease cost, and ensure compliance to requirements.
• Supports project management by coordinating development of work statement, budget, schedule and other required inputs and conducting appropriate reviews.
• Have opportunities to travel in support of flight test activities and troubleshoot operational and delivered product service anomalies where you will see in-person the awesome capability of our Air Force, Navy, and international customers.


Basic Qualifications (Required Skills and Experience):
• Bachelor’s degree or higher in engineering, computer science, mathematics, or physics.
• Experience with C/C++ language computer programming.
• Experience with developing and using modeling and simulation tools in C/C++ and Matlab/Simulink.
• Experience implementing Electro-Optical and Infrared Sensor image and signal processing algorithms to provide solutions for GPS Denied navigation, object location and tracking, and image enhancement.
• Knowledge of advanced mathematical principles as applied to aerospace analysis and modeling. Examples include stochastic process and decision theory, Kalman Filtering, transform methods, computational geometry, numerical linear algebra, optimization, computational math, numerical analysis, and Monte Carlo analysis.

Beneficial Qualifications:
• Advanced degree in electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics, or physics.
• Knowledge of estimation theory (e.g. Kalman filtering).
• Knowledge of control theory.
• Knowledge of navigation systems and modeling/simulation of navigation systems.
• Knowledge of Electro-Optical and Infrared sensor phenomenology and performance analysis
• Knowledge of Radar sensor phenomenology and performance analysis
• Experience integrating algorithm solutions into weapon platforms.
• Experience effectively communicating and collaborating on multi-discipline teams

Degree and typical experience in engineering classification: Bachelor's and 9 or more years' experience, Master's with 7 or more years' experience or PhD with 4 or more years' experience. Bachelor, Master or Doctorate of Science degree from an accredited course of study, in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry. ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.
