MIT Lincoln Laboratory Summer Research Program Intern in Lexington, Massachusetts

The Systems and Analysis Group provides technical analyses to senior USAF leadership on a broad range of issues, including survivability of advanced USAF aircraft versus modern air defenses; the impact of current and future electronic attack and electronic protection techniques; the effectiveness of advanced weapon systems; the capabilities and limitations of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems; and the vulnerability of precision- guided munitions to threat counters. Many of these system analyses rely on a large body of modeling and simulation tools for RF, infrared, GPS, and directed-energy systems, which are validated via participation in an active program of laboratory measurements and flight testing in conjunction with Group 108, Tactical Defense Systems. In other cases, new models, supported by measurements and tests when feasible, are developed to evaluate new USAF capabilities. Where a rapid capability is sought, the group may lead multigroup coalitions in the execution of these efforts.

Job Description
