This is an advanced level lead position requiring the direct application of electro-optics engineering expertise in concert with considerable initiative and creativity. The incumbent provides technical leadership in a team environment on significant design, development and research projects, and in the preparation of technical proposals. Also provides expert explanations, techniques or approaches to colleagues, management and customers where significant technical credibility is required.


The candidate will work hands-on with both internal and external teams to lead and support the development and transitioning of E-O products from concept through to production. The ideal candidate should have experience with all facets of E-O system trade analysis, design, optimization, integration, and testing. Direct experience with military imaging systems and applicable technology operating from visible light to the thermal-infrared is highly desirable.
