In an era of dynamic change in space, Aerospace is addressing a
generation of complex challenges. We operate the only federally
funded research and development center (FFRDC) committed
exclusively to the space enterprise. Our technical experts span
every discipline of space-related science and engineering. Join our
team and thrive in a career that matters to the world and you
personally.The Digital Electronics and Electromagnetics Department
is seeking an FPGA and Signal Processing engineer interested in
working problems in both signal processing and digital
communications and its implementation in hardware. The department
has extensive prototyping and proof of concept development
experience in communications and signal exploitation applications.
The work involves the development of algorithms and transitioning
them to processing platforms such as FPGAs, GPUs and general
processors. Prototypes are typically developed utilizing SDR
platforms and various waveform generation and capture technologies.
The work includes prototype development, subsystem modeling and
simulation, system level analysis and oversight of customer
projects. The whole department engages in work involving antennas,
RF subsystems, analog to digital and digital to analog conversion,
digital processing and algorithm implementation.-- Key
