MIT Lincoln Laboratory Group 36-Summer Research Program Intern in Lexington, Massachusetts
The BMDS Integration Group supports the Missile Defense Agency in the development, deployment, testing, and enhancement of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) that defends the United States, deployed forces, and allies from ballistic missile attacks. We continuously work to develop and enhance the BMDS elements to enable them to keep up with rapidly evolving threats. Our staff are involved in the development and integration of these elements from the analysis and characterization of the worldwide ballistic missile threat to fielding of new BMDS capabilities. To achieve this, we perform system and component engineering, algorithm development, advanced technology prototyping, and validation of performance by means of testing and analysis.
The group seeks a summer intern to assist our engineering staff with analysis pertaining to the trajectories of hypersonic and reentry vehicles. The successful candidate will be pursuing a degree in aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or a related discipline. Experience with MATLAB programming is necessary; some familiarity with vehicle flight dynamics is highly encouraged. Other potentially useful skills include an understanding of controls, software version control, and machine learning.
The successful candidate will be pursuing a BS or MS in Engineering, Physics, Applied Mathematics or Computer Science.
