As an Optics Software Engineer, you will help analyze, design, and test space camera systems for precision attitude determination, low light observation, and vision-based navigation for commercial, military, and NASA missions. The position requires knowledge of focal plane arrays and typical sources of noise in camera systems. The work includes development and refinement of Matlab modeling tools for camera performance prediction, laboratory testing to benchmark models, automated testing scripts for camera calibration, and conducting lab and outdoor tests of prototypes and engineering grade units. This job also includes writing test procedures for camera verification and software to automate the acquisition of key parameters. It also includes developing camera concepts and analysis for proposals as well as supporting tests of deliverable space cameras.
Candidates need to be U.S. Citizens or Permanent U.S. Residents as we work with Government Contracts.
