The Space Situational Awareness group operates the Lincoln Space Surveillance Complex (LSSC) that comprises of the Millstone deep-space satellite tracking radar and the Haystack and Haystack Auxiliary imaging radars. All these radars are remotely controlled from the Lexington Space Situational Awareness Center (LSSAC) which serves as a data processing and fusion node for the LSSC and other ground- and space-based space surveillance sensors. Together, the LSSC and LSSAC serve as an operational test bed for space situational awareness technologies and provide access to a rich set of radar and optical data. The group's current research and development efforts focus on problems such as tracking and identification of newly launched satellites, tracking and discrimination of satellites in geosynchronous clusters, automated radar image exploitation, close approach monitoring and collision warning, applications of multi-sensor data fusion, and decision support. The group is also developing a net-centric, service-oriented architecture that networks all of these capabilities together in an integrated information system.

Position Summary: Will work as part of a small team to carry out analysis and visualization of radar, electro-optical and metric sensor data in support of SSA needs.

Position Requirements: Two or more years of orbital dynamics, space surveillance network operations, optics and radar systems operations, and/or spacecraft systems operations experience required. B.S. in a related field is highly desired. Proven ability to address a broad range of problems in a dynamic team environment and demonstration of communication and briefing skills are required. Must be able to obtain an elevated clearance. Some travel required.
