Display Technology Research Engineer with Security Clearance


TEKsystems c/o Allegis Group

TEKsystems has an opportunity for Junior Display Technology Research Engineer. This position is supporting test and evaluation lab for munitions for the Air Force. Job Description:
We are looking to hire a Display Technology Research Engineer to support our operations within the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Eglin, AFB Florida. The candidate would conduct research and development related to display technology testing and characterization and design and execute experiments to evaluate display systems. TEKsystems is seeking a to support KHILS. This team is creating the simulation for topical environments and infrared sensors at KHILS. They are creating Virtual Reality for the weapons and munitions that come out of AFRL. This person will spend the majority of their time Working on setting up and operating emerging infrared scene projector technologies. This requires setting up optics, optomechanical elements, and perhaps designing / buying fixtures to improve optical setups. Among this are the responsibilities to take careful notes, collect data from these systems, and share this data with team members. Long term the expectation is this person will become more and more self-sufficient and have the ability to extrapolate on what needs to be studied with these systems to ensure they can mature. They will collaborate with cross-functional teams to optimize display systems and develop and maintain scripts for data acquisition and analysis. The candidate will be responsible for analyzing data and providing insights for display technology improvements, providing regular updates to team members and government sponsors on research progress, and staying up to date with industry trends and emerging technologies. This position is not eligible for remote work and the successful candidate will work with other assigned engineers on-site. Top Skills’ Details:
Python, MATLAB, C++
