Perform the research, analysis, design and development of new technologies, techniques, and systems for LIDAR, LADAR, and/or other laser remote sensing systems for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), directed energy weapons (DEW), atmospheric sensing, navigation and proximity operations, target tracking and identification, spectroscopy, and other applications. Perform the research and development of advanced electro-optical technologies and techniques, including concept development, modeling and simulation, design, assembly, testing, and analysis. Perform technical writing for reports and proposals, prepare and deliver presentations, interact with team members and customers, and both lead and support technical development projects. Establish and maintain effective working relationships with co-workers, internal and external customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. Perform other duties as necessary. The successful candidate will have strong analytic and communication skills and work well in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment.

Key Words: Lidar, Ladar, Laser Radar, Remote Sensing, Electro-Optics, Electro-Optical, Spectroscopy

Basic Qualifications

The candidate must have a strong understanding of physics and mathematics relevant to the design and development of electro-optical systems and their use in laser remote sensing (i.e., lidar, ladar, laser radar) applications.

The candidate must have a demonstrated ability to perform theoretical (e.g., modeling, simulation, analysis, design) and developmental (assembly, testing, data analysis, trouble-shooting, calibration) of novel electro-optical or remote sensing systems.

The candidate must have strong technical writing, presentation and overall communication skills for reports, proposals, technical presentations, and interaction with customers, team members, and suppliers.

The selected candidate must be able to communicate complex ideas and explain relevant technology and concepts to an audience of both experts and non-experts.

Company Profile
Our employees are the core of our business here at Lockheed Martin. As the leading global security & aerospace company—and the #1 IT provider to the U.S. government—Lockheed Martin is a 115,000 person-strong team working to support the U.S. and its allies in the research, development and sustainment of advanced technology systems & services worldwide. Specialties Aeronautics, Information Technology, Space Systems, Defense, Technology, Cyber Security Over one hundred years ago, on August 16, 1912, Glenn L. Martin established the Glenn L. Martin Company in Los Angeles, California. He started the company after building his first plane in a rented church, where he took a leap of faith on his risky but innovative new aircraft design at the urging of none other than Orville Wright. Four months later and four hundred miles away, on December 19, 1912, Allan and Malcolm Lockheed founded the Alco Hydro-Aeroplane Company, later renamed the Lockheed Aircraft Company. Talented mechanics, they set up shop out of a garage, constructing seaplanes that would shatter speed and distance records for overwater flights.
