Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented DSP Algorithm Engineer to join a diverse team to create unique solutions for complex problems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost-effective engineering, scientific and IT solutions.
The Foreign Weapon Systems branch goals include the characterization, analysis, testing, and ultimate defeat of all types of threat weapons systems including foreign missiles and radars. This group concentrates primarily on electrical, sensor, optical, and firmware aspects of the systems, but will engage any part of the system that advances our goals. This is hands-on work involving actual threat weapon hardware. Our team develops equipment to control and test these threats in a Hardware-in-the-Loop environment. We also specialize in the development of countermeasure concepts and equipment.
The DSP Algorithm Engineer will analyze the Digital Signal Processor (DSP) firmware and FPGA DSP blocks from foreign weapons to understand the algorithms utilized for tracking, guidance, and counter-countermeasures. The goal of this analysis will be to describe the threat capabilities and vulnerabilities against the U.S. systems that oppose it. Test benches will be developed to verify analysis and further characterize the signal processing chain. Weapon system instrumentation and testing will be supported for data collection purposes. Once analysis is complete, efforts will continue towards developing countermeasures for the threat system in order to ensure its defeat in combat.
The ideal candidate will thrive in a learning environment that encourages leadership and technical growth.
Candidate must possess a strong competency in designing hardware using DSPs.
Candidate must possess a strong competency in using FPGAs for signal processing.
Candidate must have a strong competency in constructing DSP algorithms for transformations, filtering, detection, and common signal processing techniques.
Candidate must demonstrate strong verbal and written communication skills.
Preference shown to candidates who possess a Master's of Science in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent degree from an ABET-accredited university
Preference shown to candidates who have experience and/or working knowledge of:
Debugging of complex devices or systems using standard digital and analog test equipment
Working with general purpose microprocessors in a hands-on environment is desired
Candidate must be a US Citizen and possess (and be able to maintain) a Final Top Secret/SSBI Clearance or meet the eligibility to obtain (and maintain) a Final Top Secret Clearance.
