We are seeking a Remote Sensing Data Scientist to perform research and development work focused on making orbital, aerial, and terrestrial sensors and their associated platforms and support equipment more autonomous. The successful applicant should have experience in artificial intelligence (machine learning and deep learning), pattern recognition, supervised and unsupervised classification, target detection, signature matching, image and signal processing, computer vision, and associated algorithm development as applied to remote sensing applications.
On any given day, you may be called on to:
Occasional travel may be required for this position.
The Sensor Exploitation Applications Department (5448) develops, implements, and deploys quantitative methods for the detection, identification, classification, and contextualization of objects of interest in orbital, aerial, and terrestrial sensor data to support autonomous decision making by associated platforms and their support equipment. It does so by drawing on expertise from a wide array of disciplines that include engineering, mathematics, statistics, computer science, data science, imaging science, remote sensing, computer vision, and photogrammetryto name only a few. Department 5448 applies these methods to a variety of sensor modalities including Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR); High Range Resolution (HRR) Radar; Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR, spanning VNIR/SWIR/MWIR/LWIR); Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR); Full Motion Video (FMV); Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT); and acoustics.
