Lockheed Martin Machine Learning / Computer Vision Manager in Littleton, Colorado

Description: The coolest jobs on this planet… or any other… are with Lockheed Martin Space!

At the dawn of a new space age, Lockheed Martin is a pioneer, partner, innovator and builder. Our amazing men and women are on a mission to make a difference in the world and every day we use our unique skills and experiences to create, design and build solutions to some of the worlds’ hardest engineering problems. Our culture encourages employees to dream big, perform with excellence and create incredible products. We provide the resources, inspiration and focus and if you have the passion and courage to dream big, we want to build a better tomorrow with you!

We are seeking engineers and scientists interested in a fast-paced design-test-learn life cycle for innovative computer vision projects for space. Utilizing world-class space development and test facilities, LM seeks to engineer the next generation of robust, autonomous space vehicle perception and visible navigation solutions across a variety of challenging missions. Desired experience in and/or knowledge of feature detection, tracking, matching, 3D reconstruction from multiple views, optimization for estimation problems, optical calibration, optical radiometry, image simulation, pose estimation, and algorithm implementation in embedded platforms is desired. With an appetite for accepting risk and a drive for innovation, this team intends to employ the latest advances in machine learning, autonomous driving, and deep learning research to meet exciting, emerging customer needs.

In this role, you can expect to be immersed within a talented team of engineers working across a variety of potential roles in a machine learning / computer vision leadership role. Maturation of simulation environments across a range of phenomenology’s are utilized for synthetic image generation. Simulation based performance analysis within a closed-loop simulation environment, inclusive of vehicle guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) simulations, demonstrates end-to-end mission capability. Porting C/C++ code to space-industry leading avionics platforms run within real-time hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) environments enables the team to demonstrate platform performance. Test environments involving multiple robots hosting rendezvous and proximity operation sensor platforms and space object mockups enables test-like-you flight autonomous demonstrations to retire risk prior to flight. Within this group, we value employees, their contributions, and work hard to build cohesive teams aligned to meet mission needs.

To promote the sharing of ideas, Lockheed Martin fosters an inclusive work environment that encourages differences and big-picture thinking.
