MIT Lincoln Laboratory System Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts
Our engineers ensure that all the components of a system work together to achieve the desired results. Our work ranges from trade and design studies at the beginning of a program to planning and executing the assembly, integration, and test of prototype systems. We also plan and execute testing to validate that a system performs properly. Our teams handle most of the large prototype systems developed by the Laboratory, including space payloads and satellites for sensing and communication, and airborne and ground-based systems. Recent technologies we have worked on include deployable antennas for small satellites and propulsion systems for CubeSats.
The Systems Engineering Group contributes to the development of a space, airborne, and terrestrial systems. The staff in the group provide systems engineering, including trade studies, architecture development, requirements development and flow down to subsystems, risk reduction testing and assembly, integration and test planning. The staff have broad expertise across multiple scientific and engineering disciplines including astrophysics, aerospace, mechanical, and electrical engineering. Example projects include satellite passive imaging sensors, optics for space-based and ground-based laser communications systems, airborne laser radar and imaging systems on both manned and unmanned aircraft, high power laser systems, and small satellite systems design, fabrication, test, and operation.
