MIT Student Technical Assistant--x-terms Program

Requisition ID: 19743 

The Embedded and Open Systems Group provides high-performance computing solutions for challenging signal processing, big data processing, and mission system applications. We develop cutting-edge integrated hardware/software subsystems that transform raw data into information for use by the warfighter. The Group is a national leader in the definition, development, and deployment of open system architectures for embedded and platform-hosted mission systems. Our expertise spans all key real-time processing elements (e.g, ASICs, FPGAs, GPUs, microprocessors, etc.), hardware and software architectures, signal processing algorithm and machine learning implementations, open system standards definition and deployment, and prototyping for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Electronic Warfare (EW) systems.


Project Focus:  High-Throughput Computing for Advanced Communication System


The Embedded and Open Systems Group seeks an intern to support the development of an advanced prototype RF communication system that permits long range data transmission in very dense spectral environments.  This system will be enabled by high computational throughput signal processing algorithms implemented in state-of-the-art Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) like those used in modern cloud computing platforms.  The intern will have an opportunity to participate in many stages of the development including implementation, testing, and field experimentation.


A successful candidate will have two years of coursework at MIT in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or related field and must have experience with a high-level programming language such as Matlab™, Python, or C++.  Previous experience in one or more of the following areas is desirable: signal processing algorithms, processing hardware development, software development, embedded processing, communication systems.
