Description: The position requires design, development, integration and operation of RF Hardware/Software controlled instrumentation systems for purposes of characteristic assessment of major weapon systems during field trials. All prospective employees must be comfortable operating in an environment where all field trial operations are conducted and demonstrated under the direct oversight of the sponsoring government agency and their core of other nationally asset recognized consultant contractor personnel. Task requires synthesis of customer and internal requirements, as well as, an in-depth knowledge of complex, RF, control theory-based instrumentation applications involving linear & non-linear algorithmic control processes. Significant application of advanced mathematics in association with digital signal processing is required. This position requires extensive interest & ability in the area of object oriented software design using C#/C++ programming languages, preferably in Microsoft Visual Studio Development environment. A working knowledge of conventional rack & stack instrumentation, as well as PXI/VXI type embedded instrument control test equipment is desired. Experience with MATLAB & SIMULINK dynamic simulation modeling environment is desired. A working knowledge of Linux/CentOS and real-time operating systems (such as VxWorks) is desired. Eligible candidates must be able to perform work as a part of a multidiscipline and multifunctional team and be willing to travel and work in remote, isolated and austere, locations as needed to complete projects.
