Job Information

MIT Lincoln Laboratory Intelligence Specialist in Lexington, Massachusetts

The Space Systems Analysis & Test Group identifies gaps and sets goals to ensure robust U.S. space systems for military, intelligence, civil and commercial purposes. This work involves understanding the attributes and vulnerabilities of U.S. space-related systems, including the sensors and networks used to detect, track, and characterize objects in space; the satellites that provide space-based services; and the infrastructure used to control and operate these satellites. We aim to provide senior leaders in the U.S. space community the understanding to make decisions regarding the U.S. space architecture. A central component of this effort involves consideration of how adversaries might try to exploit U.S. vulnerabilities; assessing the risk of exploitation involves technically evaluating the knowledge and resources required to mount a credible threat against our systems. Our staff regularly perform detailed modeling of optical, radar, and propulsion systems; develop novel ideas for new space systems and on-orbit operations; and achieve understanding of the timelines, architectures, and decision-making processes for maintaining awareness of the space environment. In addition, the group pursues potentially game-changing, innovative ideas for remote sensing of space and the Earth. This part of our work involves sensor design, signal and image processing as well as space object and environmental phenomenology.
