*** Surface Warships 2012:

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets

In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world's surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world's main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.

The work of this group is highly interdisciplinary; as a result, the backgrounds of the researchers are diverse, including engineering (electrical, mechanical, chemical, biomedical), physics, mathematics, computer science, chemistry, and biology. Rigorous systems analyses produce system architectures and recommend research areas to guide government investment. These analyses are grounded by modeling and simulation of threats and defenses and by data analysis. Sensor development is conducted at several levels, including initial measurements of detection signatures, proof-of-concept experiments for biological or chemical assay or electro-optic sensors, integration into autonomous sensors along with development of the associated electronics and algorithms, and rigorous field-testing in relevant environments. The group develops and tests multitechnology integrated systems in operational settings. The integrated systems include significant algorithm development to fuse multisource information. Emerging thrusts in the group include support for additional Homeland Security missions, natural disaster management, forensics, and electronics and algorithm support for other MIT Lincoln Laboratory missions.

This position requires an engineer or computer scientist to aid in the research, development, and testing of data interpretation algorithms for Homeland Defense, Department of Defense, or Intelligence Community applications, with an emphasis on image and video processing. For defined problems, candidates will be expected to evaluate existing data interpretation techniques, propose solutions for data interpretation problems based on careful analysis, code proof-of-concept software systems, and assess performance on realistic data sets. Candidates will also be expected to help identify emerging trends within the machine vision field, as well as their application to US Government data interpretation operations. Candidates should have general knowledge in the fields of machine learning, pattern recognition, probability theory, image/video processing, and basic software development.
