MIT Lincoln Laboratory Group 99-Summer Research Program Intern in Lexington, Massachusetts
We focus on rapidly developing and then field-testing innovative sensor systems used by the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, NASA, and other U.S. government agencies to gather data for the persistent surveillance of wide areas in space and on the earth. To design and build prototypes of these systems, our staff leverage a broad range of technologies: electro-optics, infrared sensors, novel focal plane arrays, embedded processors, video analytics, and image processing. We work closely with the end users of systems to ensure that new systems provide high-quality, relevant information, and we are able to respond quickly to improve our systems to meet users' needs.
The Integrated Systems and Concepts Group (99) is developing space-based sensors, with a focus on significant on-board processing. Group 99 is seeking a highly self-motivated summer intern to help design, develop, and test novel on-board image processing algorithms and strategies. Activities will include working with various embedded hardware boards, low-level software development, and extensive testing with Hardware in the Loop (HIL) for both correctness and speed.
