Undersea Signal Processing Scientist
BAE Systems FAST Labs is looking for an Undersea Signal Processing expert who is interested and experienced in guiding a group of similar individuals to develop and execute strategic growth of our Undersea Sensing and Exploitation portfolio. Specific focus areas include tracking, pattern recognition, and adaptive signal processing. The ideal candidate will either have a Masters or PhD in Electrical Engineering with a proven record of business development, strategic planning, and personnel development.
A strong technical foundation in advanced undersea signal processing is essential as this lead will be called upon to create signal processing solutions to the broad and complex research problems our customers face. This leadership will be through roles such as Principal Investigator, or Capture Team Lead on proposals and programs, as well as applying broad knowledge to provide guidance to team members on their technical contributions.
A key component of this role is building customer relationships and trust, so it will involve significant customer interaction. Strong presentation skills, and productive interpersonal communication capabilities are critical. The hired person will be responsible for growing our contracted research and development footprint through significant support and/or leadership of new proposals and follow-on/transition capture.
This position will be based out of our Merrimack, New Hampshire facility, though it will require collaboration with staff across our business areas and facilities, mostly in the northeast. Experience in transition of technology from algorithm and prototype development to system design and development stages is of particular interest.
