Job Description

This job is for a full time research faculty position in the Electronic Warfare Analysis Modeling and Analysis Division (EWMAD) within the Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory (EOSL) at Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). Responsibilities include modeling, simulation and analysis as well as developing innovative solutions for EO/IR algorithms to support Electronic Warfare (EW) research.

EWMAD performs modeling, simulation, and analysis in support of various Electro-Optical Counter Measures, Physics and Missile Warning Systems EW studies, including aircraft self-protection, countermeasures, scene generation, laser warning, scattering, propagation and turbulence, and EO/IR signature modeling. Our team has a diversity of backgrounds and skillsets, and a typical project team is composed of programmers, EO/IR engineers Physicists and Countermeasures experts. While our work is applied research, it runs the gamut from "blue sky" concepts for the future battlespace to modeling-based solutions to be fielded on today's aircraft.
• Write software to model various EO/IR and EW systems
• Assist in the design, development, and demonstration of EW simulation experiments
• Develop and integrate scripts to allow researchers to gather and analyze critical data from the simulation runs
• Perform analysis on the simulations to determine the efficacy of EW techniques and optimize the techniques
• Document analysis and maintain configuration management of all software and experiments

This position could be filled in Dayton, OH or Atlanta, GA
