HERNDON, VA
We're seeking a Signal Processing Engineer with at least 6 years’ experience (BS Degree) or 4 years’ experience (Graduate Degree) to join our Sensor Signal Processing team.  .  We combine practical data analysis with cutting edge algorithm research to address complex challenges in underwater acoustics.  Our current technology focus areas include adaptive beamforming, detection/classification/localization (DCL), phased array design/processing, statistical and adaptive signal processing, and machine learning.  Transition platforms range from size/weight/power constrained to high processing capable systems, requiring that our team members be creative and versatile.      
We are seeking a highly motivated engineer with a background in signal processing.  Candidates must be able to work in small, collaborative teams.  The candidate will ideally help to manage small projects and interface with industry partners and Government customers.  Candidates must also be willing to analyze acoustic sensor data and help debug algorithm and platform issues.  This role is more than just research and development- you will help guide the technology from the initial concept / proposal stage, assist in tuning/analysis, and provide support for testing and transition to customer use. 
Essential Functions:
  • Analysis and exploration of sonar sensor data for active and passive systems
  • Development of innovative signal processing algorithms to aid in detection, localization, and classification of contacts of interest
