Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented C++ Programmer/ Software Engineer to create unique solutions for complex problems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost-effective engineering, scientific and IT solutions. The C++ Programmer/ Software Engineer supports reverse-engineering and testing of foreign infrared seekers. This work includes developing software and hardware solutions to integrate foreign weapons into a Hardware-in-the-Loop environment. The objective of this development is to assess threat capabilities and vulnerabilities against U.S. systems that oppose it. This is hands-on work involving actual threat weapon hardware.
What You Will Be Doing:
As a C++ Programmer / Software Engineer you will develop real-time software models in C++ and NVIDIA CUDA environments to simulate analog and digital missile subsystems, implementing parallelizable algorithms that meet real-time constraints, and troubleshooting hardware test benches. You will work closely with software and hardware reverse-engineering teams to understand missile tracking, guidance, and counter-countermeasure algorithms for creation of accurate models. Following development and integration, performance of custom solutions will be validated against actual threat hardware. Once complete, efforts will continue toward developing countermeasures for the threat system, in order to ensure its defeat in combat. The Foreign Weapon Systems branch goals include the characterization, analysis, testing, and ultimate defeat of all types of threat weapons systems including foreign missiles and radars. This group concentrates primarily on electrical, sensor, optical, and firmware aspects of the systems, but will engage any part of the system that advances our goals. This is hands-on work involving actual threat weapon hardware. Our team develops equipment to control and test these threats in a Hardware-in-the-Loop environment. We also specialize in the development of countermeasure concepts and equipment.
