Data Analyst

There are currently more than 20,000 objects in Earth's orbit. Some of

these objects are operational satellites performing critical civil,

scientific, and military missions. Tracking, monitoring, controlling and

defending these satellites is of key national interest. The Information

Integration and Decision Support Group develops the mission critical

decision support tools needed to perform key functions

such as rapid event detection and dynamic scheduling of assets in order to

develop courses of action for the Space Warfighter. The decision

support tools are driven by integrating information from various sensors,

sources, and systems.

 

The focal point of the group's activities resides in its BMC3 Analysis

Testbed facility. It provides a real-time framework environment to

ensure interoperability of different distributed systems, to evaluate and

operationalize the contributions of new sensors and sources, and to

develop and assess the performance of new decision support algorithms

using live data. In addition, it provides a simulation capability for

Red/Blue exercises and event planning, operations, and training.

We are seeking a Data Analyst to help us build the next generation physics

based predictive tools for domain awareness and indications & warnings to

support Space C2. This work will help us understand the behavior of objects

in space and the intent of their operators. This candidate would be

responsible for the full stack of product development, from idea generation,

to program development and project management that results in the successful

deployment of a capability used by external users at many locations.

Candidates should be able to describe novel research and development they

were responsible for that was published or deployed to users.

 

Requirements:

PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Applied

Mathematics is required. In lieu of a PhD, a Master's degree with 5 or more

years of directly related experience will be considered. Experience with

MATLAB or a similar mathematical programming language is desirable.

Experience or research work related to satellite orbits is particularly

desirable.
