      • Classical guidance laws and control strategies for airborne vehicles
      • Linear analysis of control systems
      • Familiarization with 6-DOF simulations
      • Euclidean geometry and quaternion transformations
      • Experience in MATLAB or Python
      • Experience with flight testing and data analysis
      • Highly motivated, self-starting, and able to perform duties autonomously without supervision
      • Passion for defending the United States and her allies
 

Desired Experience:

    • MS or PhD in Robotics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or related field
    • Missile intercept terminal guidance laws
    • Flight control design and analysis for fixed and rotary wing aircraft
    • Linear and non-linear control analysis for modern control techniques
