Robotics Integration & Test Engineer / Autonomous Systems / Littleton, CO

Description:Lockheed Martin's Autonomous Systems / Robotics Group located in Littleton, Colorado provides cutting edge advanced research and engineering for unmanned autonomous robotic platforms, machine vision, and collaborative operations. Our group collaborates across the entire Lockheed Martin portfolio and touches many very interesting autonomous platforms to include aeronautics / aviation systems, surface platforms, subsea platforms, military ground vehicles, and many others.

Our group in Littleton CO is quite entrepreneurial and cutting edge and offers a start-up feel but also comes with the financial stability of a well-known and reputable fortune 100 US owned corporation. We offer a continuous learning environment with strong career growth and advancement opportunities.

Initial assignment is support to the integration systems developer function to the Expedient Leader/Follower (ExLF) robotic ground vehicle program. ExLF is an Autonomous Ground Vehicle program with both heritage to other systems developed by Autonomous Systems. Autonomous Convoy operations is the primary mission of the ExLF System. The ExLF Systems Integration and Test (I&T) engineer is responsible for coordinating with the Customer and Suppliers in the establishment, maintenance, and execution of the AGR Incr2 test program. Position requirements include the development and maintenance of system test plans, schedules, procedures, coordination of system/subsystem integration, system verification testing, technical demonstrations, and soldier evaluation. Applicants selected will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.

Relocation: Relocation assistance is possible for this exciting position.
