  6. Develop and track modeling and allocations for Technical Performance Measurements.
  7. Develop and maintain documentation in support of formal DoD acquisition design reviews (i.e. CoDR, SRR, PDR, IBR, CDR, TRR, etc.)
  8. Technical Report Writing (i.e. good technical writing skills are beneficial)

Additional Desired Experience / Capability

  1. Experience in development and delivery of electro-optical systems, preferably High Energy Laser systems and/or High Energy Laser Beam Control Systems.
  2. Experience in specification and evaluation of requirements for laser and electro-optical systems, in particular for high power applications.
  3. Configuration Management for laser and electro-optical systems, in particular for high power applications.
  4. Experience in Adaptive Optical (AO) Systems.
  5. Experience in LabVIEW or C/C++/C#.
  6. System Test and Evaluation and validation of modeling tools against measurements.

This job offers a unique opportunity for the right candidate. Even if you already are familiar with High Energy Laser (HEL) or AO technology or are working in the field – you will learn to think of HEL and AO systems from a new perspective.
