Knowledge of radar sensing physics and signal processing techniques. Ability and willingness to learn new physical and mathematical concepts. Individual must possess good communication skills and be capable of working both independently and in a team environment.
DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS: BA/BS (or equivalent experience), 20+ years of experience. Analysis experience in aspects of the Ballistic missile defense system (e.g., Aegis Weapons Systems, Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD), Fire Control (FOM, GFC), C2BMC, BMDS sensors (EO/IR/RF), kill vehicles, interceptors, countermeasures, counter-countermeasures, or threats). Experience with radar scheduling, signal processing, tracking, discrimination, and/or electronic warfare. Experience with Matlab programming for conducting analysis and describing complex phenomenon. Experience with configuration management software such as TortoiseSVN. A basic understanding of performance parameters, technical performance measures, methods and techniques definition, sensors, missiles, interceptors, detection/tracking, or Command and Control (e.g., C3I, C4I, etc.) analysis is desired. Individual with demonstrated team leadership experience is desired.
