Mgr II- Tech Dev

BAE Systems is looking for a Technology Development Manager(TDM) to augment our Special Activity Exploitation (SAX) research group within our advanced R&D arm: Technology Solutions. SAX is a cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research and engineering organization that is the Technology Solutions lead for invention and application of innovative machine learning, control, and optimization approaches to learn patterns of behavior from a wide range of data sources, including real-time sensor feeds. Exploitation uses of these behavioral models include anomaly and change detection, prediction of future behavior, and recognition of complex events and activities. Applications of our technology include terrestrial, maritime, and space domains over a range of sensing modalities (e.g., radar, full motion video, radio communication) spanning the technology readiness spectrum from basic research through fielded operational systems. Our cutting edge projects and opportunities advance the frontiers of science as well as contributing to practical systems that solve real problems.

Our ideal candidate is a strong entrepreneur who can assist in guiding new and existing efforts developing novel adaptive incremental data-driven model learning and exploitation algorithms, presenting ideas to colleagues and customers, writing winning proposals, and executing projects when awarded. You must have a desire to create and/or sustain lines of research by participating in proposal writing and other marketing efforts with research funding agencies such as DARPA. Typically our project workflow involves: (1) researching solutions developed in-house or published in scientific literature to determine applicability and identify strengths and weaknesses; (2) creating prototypes (typically in MATLAB) to support demonstration and evaluation of key algorithmic ideas on (often real) data; and (3) developing robust, real-time implementations suitable for target hardware/software environments. You must be able to: (1) provide research and technical leadership (2) quickly adapt to changing requirements; and (3) be involved in all workflow stages.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Running projects in the SAX portfolio, understanding the current research customer base and growing the customer base for both project growth as well as new projects
  • Interfacing with the corresponding Business Areas to understand short term and long term technology leads and influencing the technical direction of future SAX IRaD and CRaD efforts
  • Fully understanding the BAE Systems corresponding Business Area customer base to assist in ensuring that SAX research efforts are being effectively directed to satisfy end customer needs
