In this position with Peraton Labs, you will serve as the Radar System Engineer and Subject Matter Expert for efforts related to Precision Fires Radars (PFR) integrated with Armament Systems. You will work strategically with Radar Team members, the Radar Team Lead, Government Branch Chief, Senior Government Leadership, and PM/Customer reps to execute System and Technical Engineering tasks for various PFR programs. The candidate will support PFR system development and integration through working with an interdisciplinary group of scientists and engineers, interfacing with IPT members from Academia, Industry, and Government, reviewing technical design materials, providing recommendations, conducting analysis tasks on advanced signal processing techniques and radar data, documenting project plans, system engineering artifacts, derived subsystem requirements and test planning and execution/support.
- Planning, implementing, and pro-actively correcting issues related to performance and technical risk management for PFR efforts
- Providing support and subject matter expertise in various PFR disciplines related to the design, development, and testing of PFR systems and integration with armament systems, including high accuracy ground based radar systems tracking projectiles, threats (for some missions)
- Enabling advanced capabilities through a Radar to Munition Datalink for Command guidance and Navigation support
- Developing and utilizing modeling and simulation tools related to radar systems, signal processing, and tracker algorithms
- Conducting technical analysis to evaluate performance of existing radar systems, suggesting methods of improvement of radar performance, and assessing future system performance in new mission areas
In this position with Peraton Labs, you will serve as an Autonomy Architect / Lead Autonomy Engineer. Your primary responsibility will be to assist high level Army decision-makers in the development of a mid to long term science and technology development effort in the autonomous weapon systems domain.
In this role, you will be required to:
- Research and report on current and future technologies and trends in the autonomous systems field to support technology development decisions.
- Acquire and evaluate autonomy related platforms and hardware components such as robotic ground and air platforms, embedded computing solutions, sensors, and automated target detection / tracking / identification technologies.
- Develop laboratory M&S environments to support autonomy algorithm development, training, and evaluation.
- Develop prototype autonomous systems in a laboratory environment. Prototypes will require integration of COTS robotic platforms and sensor packages with a variety of weapon systems. Prototype software develop tasks will include all aspects of autonomy.
- Develop multi-system autonomous teaming algorithms and demonstrate with hardware prototypes communicating over tactical wireless networks.
- Field test prototype autonomous systems. Field tests will include evaluation of autonomous algorithms for path planning / obstacle avoidance, evaluation of machine vision / target detection / target identification / target tracking algorithms, integration with tactical wireless networks, and live fire weapon systems testing.
In this position with Peraton Labs you will serve as a member of an experienced engineering team responsible for development of next generation counter unmanned aerial system (CUAS) solutions. Your role will be to develop the real-time Linux / C++ based software which controls all aspects of the CUAS precision targeting system. This position will require approximately 15% travel to various military test ranges across the US and internationally.
What You'll Get to DO:
- Develop C++ software in a Red Hat Linux environment. You will be responsible developing modern, real-time C++ code within our team’s application infrastructure. You will use Conan to manage software dependencies, Gitlab for distributed source code control, Jira for issue tracking, and CMAKE for build configuration.
- Develop and test interfaces to a wide variety of external systems. Your software will interface with the external environment through a number of protocols including ethernet, CAN bus, RS232, RS422, RS485, discretes, and USB. You will develop implementations of Interface Control Documents (ICDs) which enable your software to perform motion control, consume targeting data, and control external weapon systems. Interface testing will be conducted via simulators of external components running in our System Integration Laboratory (SIL).
- Travel to support field tests. Your software will generally be tested at a live-fire test event. You will travel to and setup your system and its required support equipment – to include military systems / weapons. You will support test data collection, system and software troubleshooting, and may participate in the test by serving as the test operator for your software and related systems.
