Lockheed Martin EO Design and Analysis Engineer, Orlando FL in Orlando, Florida

Description: Lockheed Martin is seeking an Electro-Optical (EO) Engineer who is passionate about EO and can apply technical skills to develop optimized solutions for complex challenges. Skill set should include physics-based modeling, FLIR characterizations, image processing and/or algorithm development. The EO Engineer must understand the sensitivities associated with the various parts of the imaging chain to quickly and effectively perform system design trades.

The EO Engineer must be willing to increase technical depth and breadth in EO as a path towards becoming a Subject Matter Expert (SME). The EO engineer must be willing to mentor junior EO engineers and potentially teach a technical course on an EO specialty once the EO Engineer achieves expertise in that specialty. Although this is a technical contributor role, the EO Engineer must be able to communicate analysis at the appropriate level to a diverse audience including other technical experts, customers, and senior management.


Basic Qualifications:

Candidate must demonstrate the ability to perform the following Electro-Optical Engineering assignments:

Demonstrate knowledge or experience of EO systems consisting of advanced optical/infrared material and coatings.

Demonstrate experience of EO systems consisting state of the art sensors, and advanced laser systems.

Demonstrate knowledge or experience in radiometric EO analysis and simulation.

Perform design and analysis of EO candidate systems for both ground and airborne sensor suite applications.

Demonstrate an ability to define and/or access and utilize target threat signatures in EO modeling.

Demonstrate the ability to utilize MATLAB when running EO performance analysis simulations or developing target models.

Conduct parametric studies to support advanced EO targeting sensor and seeker development.

Model design solutions that can be fabricated for laboratory test and characterization prior to development.

Perform design and specification of instrumentation for integrated system level tower and field testing.

Ability to obtain an interim security clearance and considered a US Citizen.

Desired Skills:

Experience with Code V and MODTRAN is desired.

Perform design trade studies and system verification analyses to optimize candidate system performance, cost, size and weight.
