Posted on: January 16, 2022
The Optical Engineer -will join a team focused on the
development of new optical products and sub-components for imaging
systems, sensor solutions, laser devices, and displays. Group
members contribute across multiple programs, participating in and
often leading hands-on evaluation of prototype hardware, conducting
data driven analysis, and providing design content (architecture,
performance modeling, and lens design). -A position within this
growing group represents a unique opportunity to gain exposure to a
variety of defense related systems, develop cutting edge solutions
together with a motivated team, and make a tangible impact
throughout the product lifecycle.
The Optical Engineer may contribute to activities including (but
not limited to):
* - Optical System Modeling and Simulation: -Use of tools such as
NVIPM to determine ranges for detection, recognition and
identification of specified targets. Use of custom math models for
unique laser and detection systems. Conduct architectural trade
studies and provide content to white papers / proposals.
* - Laboratory and Field Testing: -Hands-on testing of optical
products and components during design / development (cameras, laser
range finders, etc.). Laboratory measurements may include camera
and laser sub-component properties. The engineer will utilize an
array of instrumentation in well-equipped, continually evolving
* - Lens design: -Validation of flowed down requirements to the
optical sub-system; design form selection; tolerance analysis to
ensure a best value solution. Tools such as Zemax and FRED are most
