MIT Lincoln Laboratory Co-Op FPGA Development 2021 in Lexington, Massachusetts
The Tactical Networks Groupspecializes in advanced network and communications systems development, with a focus on mobile and airborne networks of the future. Tactical wireless networks differ from commercial wireless networks in the lack of infrastructure to support stable connectivity. The varied and stressing operational environment, as well as aircraft speeds and maneuverability, and platform integration provide additional challenges to communication and network systems. The Tactical Networks Group uses a combination of technical analysis, modeling, simulation, emulation, prototype development, and flight tests to develop new communication systems and evaluate and predict their performance.
The Tactical Networks Group is seeking a Co-Op student to start in 2021 for up to 8 months to actively contribute in developing, prototyping, and testing digital signal processing algorithms and implementations for advanced tactical communcations. The individual will work with a mentor who will guide and direct their work. As a member of our research team, the intern will have the opportunity to develop, implement and test digital signal processing algorithms on state-of-the-art waveform development platforms.
Skills and Requirements:
Pursuing a BS or MS in Electrical or Computer Engineering or Computer Science
Completed courses in digital design and digital systems
Experience with VHDL, MATLAB, and/or C++
Familiarity with existing FPGAs from manufacturers such as Xilinx, Altera, etc, is preferred
Familiarity or coursework in communications and networking is a plus
