Job Description BAE Systems is looking for a Technology Development Manager(TDM) to augment our Special Activity Exploitation (SAX) research group within our advanced R&D arm: FAST Labs. SAX a cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research and engineering organization that is the FAST Labs lead for invention and application of innovative machine learning, control, and optimization approaches to learn patterns of behavior from a wide range of data sources, including real-time sensor feeds. Exploitation uses of these behavioral models include anomaly and change detection, prediction of future behavior, and recognition of complex events and activities. Applications of our technology include terrestrial, maritime, and space domains over a range of sensing modalities (e.g., radar, full motion video, radio communication) spanning the technology readiness spectrum from basic research through fielded operational systems. Our cutting edge projects and opportunities advance the frontiers of science as well as contributing to practical systems that solve real problems. Our ideal candidate is a strong entrepreneur who can assist in guiding new and existing efforts developing novel adaptive incremental data-driven model learning and exploitation algorithms, presenting ideas to colleagues and customers, writing winning proposals, and executing projects when awarded. You must have a desire to create and/or sustain lines of research by participating in proposal writing and other marketing efforts with research funding agencies such as DARPA. Typically our project workflow involves: (1) researching solutions developed in-house or published in scientific literature to determine applicability and identify strengths and weaknesses; (2) creating prototypes (typically in MATLAB) to support demonstration and evaluation of key algorithmic ideas on (often real) data; and (3) developing robust, real-time implementations suitable for target hardware/software environments. You must be able to: (1) provide research and technical leadership (2) quickly adapt to changing requirements; and (3) be involved in all workflow stages. Key responsibilities include: Running projects in the SAX portfolio, understanding the current research customer base and growing the customer base for both project growth as well as new projectsInterfacing with the corresponding Business Areas to understand short term and long term technology leads and influencing the technical direction of future SAX IRaD and CRaD effortsFully understanding the BAE Systems corresponding Business Area customer base to assist in ensuring that SAX research efforts are being effectively directed to satisfy end customer needsTypical Education & Experience Typically a Bachelor's Degree and 10 years work experience or equivalent experienceRequired Skills and Education U.S. citizenship is required, possess an active TS security clearanceSolid experience presenting to technical audiencesSolid analytic, project, and personnel leadership skillsStrong writing and presentation skills sufficient to support: (a) creation and sustainment of lines of research through marketing via direct interaction with customers and proposal writing; and (b) publication of research results in professional, peer-reviewed journals and technical conferencesEqually effective communication with lifelong academics, government customers, and professional engineersSolid experience with exploratory research and development efforts including monitoring and guidance of team member activitiesPreferred Skills and Education Demonstrated experience in formulating and carrying out research agendasRecord of publications will be viewed favorablyTrack record of experience demonstrating detailed knowledge (including understanding of strengths and weaknesses of various approaches), application, analysis, and development in at least one of machine learning, probabilistic reasoning, adaptive control, and/or optimizationAbout BAE Systems Electronic Systems BAE Systems is a premier global defense and security company with approximately 90,000 employees delivering a full range of products and services for air, land and naval forces, as well as advanced electronics, security, information technology solutions and customer support and services.The Electronic Systems (ES) sector spans the commercial and defense electronics markets with a broad portfolio of mission-critical electronic systems, including flight and engine controls; electronic warfare and night vision systems; surveillance and reconnaissance sensors; secure networked communications equipment; geospatial imagery intelligence products and systems; mission management; and power-and energy-management systems.
