Job Description

Principal Analysis Engineer

Contract/ Contract to Hire 12+ months M-F 40 hours weekly

Position is on site 

 

  • Must be legally authorized to work in the US, visa sponsorship not available
  • US citizen / possess or have the ability to obtain a DOD Security Clearance

 

The successful candidate will be responsible for development of Inertial / GPS system navigation algorithms and Kalman filters for use in air, land and sea products.  Requires extensive knowledge and experience in the design of Kalman filters, algorithms, and modeling/simulation for use in inertial navigation systems.

 

This is a technical position requiring the individual to mentor junior engineers along with performing technical briefing of Senior Management and Customers. The selected individual will be expected to independently work across multiple programs and broad assignments and will be responsible for requirements determination, trade studies, algorithm designs and performance analyses required to develop robust Kalman filter solutions. Performance analysis includes inertial sensor model development, system optimization and Monte Carlo assessments utilizing Matlab or other appropriate tools. Additional responsibilities will be to develop compensation and sensor fusion solutions.

Essential Functions

  • Development and test of Compensation, Navigation, and Guidance Algorithms and associated requirements
  • Coding of Compensation, Navigation, and Guidance Algorithms in Higher Order Computer Languages
  • Design, implementation, and maintenance of the Modeling &Simulation (M&S) system and test environment
  • Must be able to provide clear and concise communication (written and oral), as well as provide professional presentations
  • Responsible for managing technical schedule and cost for the assigned projects

Required Skills

Critical Competencies

  • Extensive knowledge and experience in the design and implementation of INS and GPS Kalman filters and navigation algorithms
  • Excellent interpersonal, communication (oral and written) skills
  • Drives for results, action oriented
  • Strategic thinker, visionary
  • Excellent presentation skills and presentation preparation
  • Displays organizational leadership skills/team player
Required Experience

Education & Experience

  • B.S. in Engineering. M.S. preferred
  • Ten (10) or more years’ experience in navigation Kalman filter and navigation algorithm design, development and test. Experience with modeling and simulation of inertial navigation sensors, algorithm mechanizations and sensor fusion techniques
  • Desire to have working experience with C/C++ and be proficient with modeling and simulation using MATLAB/Simulink.
  • The ideal candidate would be familiar with integrating various aids (GPS, celestial, odometer, DVL, barometer, terrain mapping, etc.) for improving performance (heading and navigation) of inertial systems
