Located in Logan, UT, this Company builds conceptual to proof - prototypes of sensors and sensor systems for NASA and military applications.
The Electro-Optical Engineer/Scientist will:
- Provide the vital communication that transitions the scientific advancements of Principle Investigators to the engineers who will deliver the product to market
- Visit NASA and other customers to obtain new space elector optics needs and lay out basic system level design for new programs and projects.
- Communicate system requirements to the engineering team.
- Lead program and project development that builds and/or enhances our core capability
- Ensure that the lab is successful in developing instruments critical to the strategic objectives of NASA, NOAA, MDA, and other government agencies
- Provide subject matter expertise in the radiometric analysis and design of electro-optic remote sensing payloads including imaging, spectrometer, and LIDAR instruments
- Design, develop, modify, and evaluate optical systems; including diagnosing malfunctions in existing products and making improvements to produce desired results
- Develop and apply advanced optical design methods, theories, and research techniques in the investigation and solution of optical design and modeling problems
- Conduct investigations and tests of considerable complexity
- Investigate and advise on the feasibility of new projects
- Lead or support new business opportunities through the lead, qualification, and capture process
- Author papers published in proceedings or journals and present papers at technical conferences or meetings
- Provide technical consultation and work leadership for other team members – will take a leadership role in design reviews and larger proposal efforts
The Instrument Scientist will have:
- An advanced technical degree with 10+ years of experience in the electro-optical system design and analysis
