Research Scientist, Senior

Key Role:

Work as a scientist in a fast–paced research and development team on spectral imagery systems addressing image collection, characterization, and exploitation problems. Apply remote sensing principles and methods to analyze data and solve problems, including automating data analysis using machine learning, characterize existing and new sensor systems, developing new and improve data analysis techniques, and proposing collection strategies to address new signature development. Support informational briefings for educating scientists and managers on research outcomes and the impact on the mission. Design collection experiments and compare measured results with ground truth data, including image reconstruction, object detection and tracking, feature extraction and classification, machine learning, signal processing, and radiometric analysis. Work with algorithm development, Matlab and Python scripting, High Performance Computing (HPC), image science, signal processing, and Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) systems. Learn new concepts and apply them to meet research objectives.

Basic Qualifications:

-10+ years of experience in physics, spectral remote sensing, and image science

-Experience with workflow automation, HPC, and neural networks

-Experience with programming in Matlab, Python, tool development in ENVI and IDL

-Ability to think critically and independently

-Active TS/SCI clearance

-BA or BS degree
