Technical SETA support is needed develop novel interferometer approach to gather image information of space objects. The interferometer will be ground-based and gather passive light reflected from near-space objects. The program will be structured as three separate thrust areas:

          High volume aperture manufacturing, aperture/fiber coupling, and real-time fiber path length compensation

          Image reconstruction algorithms including modeling based on interferometer geometry and hardware performance metrics

          Multiband interferometer (fringe) detector design including imaging detector and all optical elements from fiber to imaging detector

 

Duties:

  • analysis of performers' technical deliverables and publications

  • independent review and summary of technical literature and emerging technologies

  • continuous survey and summarization of relevant government, academic, and contracted research

  • assistance in coordination with potential mission and transition partners

  • assistance in testing and evaluation

  • technical support and expertise for new concepts beyond the program

Qualifications

  • Bachelors' degree in physics, physical chemistry, mathematics, optics, imaging science, or relevant engineering fields with four plus (4+) years of work experience in one of these fields or Master's/PhD degree with two plus (2+) years of work experience. PhD desirable, but not required if work experience provides depth and breadth of technical understanding and evidence of problem-solving capability equivalent to that expected for a PhD.

  • Ability to proactively manage multiple, concurrent tasks.

  • The following are requirements within the technical SETA staffing team (either one person with all these skills, or two people with complementary skills):

    • Two years' experience in the Intelligence Community (IC), including experience with requirements, CONOPS, and transition.

    • Experience managing a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary test and evaluation team.

    • Experience with optical physics techniques such as interferometry, optical design, groundbased astrometry; previous lab or field work is desirable, but program advisor/oversight only acceptable.

    • Experience/expertise detecting weak signals in a clutter limited environment: previous lab or field work desirable, but program advisor/oversight only acceptable.

  • Must have or be able to obtain a TS/SCI with Poly.


Desired Qualifications

 


   Atmospherics/adaptive optics

   Focal plane arrays/other imagers

   Optical design

   Space situational awareness and location, tracking, and identification

   Astronomy and astrometry
