Summer Research Program Intern

The Advanced Concepts and Technologies Group develops radar, communications, and systems technologies for use in future air defense systems. Of particular interest is the development of highly digitized phased-array radars and advanced signal processing techniques to enable the next generation of shipboard and airborne surveillance sensors. Major activities within the group include system concept development, modeling and simulation, signal processing algorithm design, prototype system design and development, and experimental field testing and data analysis.


The group seeks candidates with broad interests and capabilities to support concept development, systems analysis, and data analysis activities across multiple projects within the group. The Systems Analyst candidate should be a motivated self-starter with the ability and interest to learn new application areas and leverage knowledge in physics, mathematics, or related engineering fields to solve complex problems. The candidate should be able to work well in teams and it is expected to effectively participate in fast-paced, multi-disciplinary teams of system design, system integration, and signal analysis engineers and scientists. 


The group values inclusiveness, fosters mentoring at all levels and promotes critical and innovative thinking to address the needs of the warfighter.  This position promises to be highly rewarding intellectually, collaboratively, and in providing great value to the nation.


The successful candidate will be enrolled in an undergraduate program in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field.  A strong working knowledge of FPGA development process and lifecycle, digital circuit design, build synthesis, and lab bring-up is required.  Hands-on laboratory experience working with and debugging hardware and software is preferred.
