Group 36--Summer Research Program Intern

To help defend our nation, deployed forces, and allies from ballistic missile attacks, we support the Missile Defense Agency in the development, deployment, testing, and enhancement of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). We continuously develop and enhance BMDS elements to enable them to keep up with rapidly evolving threats. Our staff are involved in the development and integration of these elements from the analysis and characterization of the worldwide ballistic missile threat to the fielding of new BMDS capabilities. We perform system and component engineering, algorithm development, advanced technology prototyping, and validation of system performance by means of testing and analysis.
Job Description
The BMDS Integration Group is seeking summer interns to work in The Huntsville Field Site to contribute to the following projects:
Trajectory Model Development and Refinement
Focus on developing new and refine existing missile trajectory planning tools and user interfaces. These tools need to produce realistic ballistic trajectories within user-defined constraints. Secret clearance is not required, but preferred. If the student has a collateral secret clearance, the trajectory tool will also be designed to interface with other architecture tools to provide representations of defense capabilities.
Degree required: Undergraduate student in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics
Parametric Engagement Planning
Focus on finding ways to characterize performance of a collaborative weapon system (multiple weapons coordinating in a salvo) against different threat scenarios. This characterization will be dependent on many weapon and target parameters, and will require a student proficient in basic probability and combinatorics. Secret clearance is not required, but preferred.
Degree required: Undergraduate student in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
