Systems Engineer



Beavercreek, Ohio, United States


Job Description:

The Leidos Innovation Center at Beavercreek OH is seeking a Sensor Systems R&D Engineer to join our growing team performing applied research and development of electro-optical and/or radio frequency (RF) sensors and/or electronic warfare systems for the US Air Force. The successful candidate will develop and integrate modeling and simulation (M&S) systems to analyze various sensor system concepts for future combat aircraft.

Primary Responsibilities

• Develop, model, and apply detection and tracking algorithms for sensor systems

• Develop and/or maintain physics-based digital models of sensor systems

• Integrating sensor models into simulation systems and performing sensor phenomenology tests

• Integrating software models with hardware devices for hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulations

• Interfacing with members of a high performance technical team including software engineers, computer scientists, and EO and RF engineers

• Adapting and converting engineering level models written and developed in MATLAB, SIMULINK, Python, C++, and other high level languages for implementation in engagement and mission level models sensor and electronic warfare models (1-v-1, few-v-few, and many-v- many)

• Learning and understanding the underlying physics of various sensor types as necessary

Basic Qualifications

• BS in Physics, Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or Computer Science and 8+ years of experience

• Experience with signal processing, tracking and/or control theory including Kalman filters

• Experience with sensor systems or modeling of sensor systems (Radar, RF, and/or IR sensor systems)

• Experience with MATLAB and/or Python

• Must be a US Citizen and be able to obtain a Top Secret security clearance

Preferred Qualifications

• MS in Physics, Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or Computer Science

• Experience with aerospace simulations

• Experience with Simulink
