EO/IR Technology Consultant

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to inform advanced research projects in electro-optic sensing and imaging systems for next generation defense applications? As an imaging technology consultant, you understand the power behind complex EO/IR imaging systems and applications. That knowledge is key when it comes to assisting the DoD with strategic consulting on new technologies to improve performance for future sensing systems.

Work with world-class scientists and engineers to impact national security investment through the development of cutting-edge technologies for military applications. Provide technical management support and strategic assessments of new state of the art imaging and detection technologies to support senior DoD decision makers, including conducting background research for evaluating the feasibility of new technological concepts and potential impact of future research programs. Produce and present findings and recommendations to a team of colleagues and clients, assist with technical program management and program development, and brief materials out for government research and development efforts. Apply expertise in exploring new concepts and identifying technological gaps in need of investment and assist with managing program performance and risk. Draft technical briefings for both technical and public audiences, perform travel for program reviews, site visits, and performer testing, and work as part of a diverse team to meet client needs. Provide technical engineering consulting and evaluations on the design, development, and modification of focal plane arrays and infrared imaging systems and components. Facilitate the transition of program deliverables to DoD stakeholders.
