Job Description:

The Leidos Innovations Center (LInC) has an exciting opportunity for a skilled Signal Processing Engineer to be part of a strong team of scientists, engineers and operations experts addressing some our nation’s most challenging intelligence problems. Come join a team conducting applied research and development, including the development and assessment of signal processing algorithms against real-world data.  The division’s primarily focus is on research and development and advanced prototyping.  

Primary Responsibilities
We are currently seeking a signal processing engineer to be part of on a small team that analyzes signatures from MASINT targets embedded in challenging interference environments in order to identify exploitable features and develop detection, classification and geolocation algorithms that generate valuable information for intelligence analysts. Other duties may include participating in customer-sponsored field tests, signal modeling for operational planning, and building and testing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems, such as software-defined radios (SDRs), for use in prototype signal collection and processing systems.  Responsibilities include development of digital signal processing algorithms and analysis tools, incorporating traditional Signal Processing as well as Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques; conducting data processing and analysis; performing signal detection, characterization and geolocation operations; and implementing algorithms in hardware systems as research progresses toward operational implementation.  

The successful candidate will have the following educational background and work experience:
•    Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics or a related field, with 3-5 years of relevant work experience, or a Master’s degree in these same fields with 2 years of relevant work experience
