The selected candidate will provide imagery science analysis support specifically related to the exploitation of imagery in one of the following sensor disciplines: radar, infrared, spectral, or geospatial (to include photogrammetry); to assist the government/contractor team in optimizing the collection and exploitation of varied imagery data types, especially those categorized as AGI. The image scientist will collaborate with and provide scientific analysis support to imagery/geospatial analysts, who will leverage the value-added support to sharpen their assessments of current intelligence issues. The image scientist duties also include applying AGI techniques and capabilities to mission issues, as well as investigating innovative and emerging technologies to incorporate into analysis. The evaluation of commercial, academic, and outside approaches and algorithms, refinement, development of measures of effectiveness, improvements to system environments, and creation of new procedures will be commonplace. Formal and informal written reports and briefings will be necessary to capture plans, schedules, status updates and results.
Typical Education & Experience
Typically a Bachelor's Degree and 6 years work experience or equivalent experience
Required Skills and Education
3 - 10 years of relevant, demonstrated experience in imagery science/analysis. Position requires specialization and expertise in SAR and Spectral image applied processing, exploitation and scientific analysis, and experience in other modalities to include EO, IR, Lidar, knowledge of image formation, and associated discipline phenomenology. Additional experience required includes scientifically processing imagery (all modalities) from Civil and Commercial imaging systems, proficiency with techniques, algorithms, and scientific analysis of associated discipline data processing using RSI ENVI. Experience with GOTS applications such as FSTK and AGITK is a plus. Analyst/Scientist must possess the ability to communicate effectively in writing and oral presentations, complete task in a timely manner with minimal supervision, and the ability to work cooperatively and effectively as a team member.
