High Energy Laser Engineer and Scientist

The Challenge:
What if you could use your engineering skills to transform the Directed Energy Industry? As a High Energy Laser Engineer and Scientist, you understand the complexity and critical interfaces of these systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to supporting the transition of Directed Energy Systems to the warfighter. We’re looking for an engineer and scientist who can use their skills to help our client identify and assess mid-Technology Readiness Level (TRL) systems for potential use in operational experimentation activities.

Our team is a diverse group of Research & Development experts, with the focus on supporting our client's goals to understand and assess the capabilities of Directed Energy systems. That’s why we need you, a High Energy Laser Engineer and Scientist, with a solid background in High Energy Lasers to help us design and develop experimentation plans, assess technology readiness, and advise our clients on technical matters. You’ll work alongside our clients to develop plans based upon your knowledge, and you'll make recommendations on potential areas of research to increase the knowledge base. You’ll directly impact the operational utility of Directed Energy Systems by assessing their system level capabilities, user interfaces, and supportability. We’ll look to you to share your Directed Energy expertise through leadership and mentoring junior staff. This is a chance to use your experience-based knowledge in Directed Energy while broadening your skillset into areas like Test & Evaluation, System Life Cycle & Sustainment and Predictive Analytics. Join us and take on exciting challenges in Directed Energy, as we Accelerate The Transition of Directed Energy Systems.

Empower change with us.
