Northrop Grumman has needs for Sensor Modeling, Simulation and Analysis (MS&A) Developers on multiple major development programs with simulation-based system/software development, integration, test and verification activities. These programs are leaders in digital transformation in the MS sector and Baltimore campus, leveraging a model-/simulation-based approach including DevOps principles and High Performance Computing.
Qualified candidates will have opportunities to accelerate the delivery of sensor capability to our customers through the development and use of advanced models and simulations of RF sensors and the interactions with the environment.
Roles & Responsibilities:
The position involves Modeling, Simulation and Analysis (MS&A) of advanced sensor systems using C++ object-oriented design, advanced data structures and test driven development. Additional experience developing with Python is desired for large scale data analytics, probability and statistics, including the application of design of experiment techniques for the evaluation of system performance. The position also includes the integration of MS&A with operational flight software, collecting and analyzing data from laboratory or flight tests, the verification and validation of simulation performance against flight test data, and formally verifying that the models meet specified requirements. The position requires high technical rigor required to produce publication quality reports which define the foundation for simulation credibility across all stakeholders and provide the artifacts to support formal simulation Verification, Validation and Accreditation (VVA).
Candidates should be highly motivated developers who can work independently to develop software, design documentation and model V&V artifacts. The sensor systems, simulation software and workflow is fairly complex therefore strong problem solving skills are desired. Developers are encouraged to innovate to solve problems and identify improvements across MS&A products. The role is multidisciplinary in nature and provides tremendous technical growth opportunities.
Key Traits for Success in this Role:
A desire to apply a multi-disciplinary approach to problems
Independence and a sense of ownership of one’s work
Dedication to excellence in technical execution
A desire to learn and excel in software development (C++, python), sensor systems engineering, and technical writing.

Experience with object-oriented programming (C++) and python
DoD Top Secret Clearance
Experience in radar signal processing
Experience in physics-based model or simulation development
Experience with real-time or reactive simulation/software development
Domain experience in sensor simulations for RF sensors
