MIT Lincoln Laboratory Group 37--Summer Research Program Intern in Lexington, Massachusetts

Requisition ID: [[id]]

The Advanced Undersea Systems and Technology Group develops innovative undersea and undersea-enabled capabilities for transition to operational systems of the US Navy and other Department of Defense (DoD) sponsors. Focus areas include acoustic and non-acoustic sensors, undersea networks, autonomous systems, and advanced signal processing algorithms. The group performs rigorous systems analyses, develops system architectures, and builds prototypes to demonstrate the viability and effectiveness of new concepts, capabilities, and processing techniques. In addition, the group provides undersea domain and technology expertise to inform and motivate novel cross-domain concept development.

The Advanced Undersea Systems and Technology Group seeks a summer intern to participate in the development and testing of advanced path planning algorithms for unmanned undersea vehicles. Specific to this effort, the successful candidate would be required to analyze the computational efficiency of the implemented algorithm candidates, assess path planner performance through extensive real-time simulations, and assist in the preparation of executable code to be deployed on the vehicle.

Candidate should be pursuing a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science or similar technical field. Experience with MATLAB, Python, C, or C++ is desired.
