Senior Sensor Data Fusion Professional
Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, Maryland
Date Posted 03/25/2022
Science-Computer Sciences
Employment Type Mathematics/Applied
Application Deadline Open until filled

Are you interested in helping to develop and field the nation’s next generation capabilities in ISR&T (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance & Targeting) and counter-ISR&T?


Are you excited by tackling difficult, multi-faceted problems, and bringing different systems together to achieve a greater capability? If you have significant experience in ISR&T or related systems and capabilities, this is a great opportunity for you!


The AMDS Multi-Domain Surveillance and Tracking Branch is looking for experienced technical specialists who can help us develop improvements to today’s ISR&T fusion algorithms and pave the way for next generation data fusion developments. We believe this will include focusing on the science and researching and developing approaches for fusing dissimilar sensor data (e.g., RF & IR), ranging from raw sensor data to track fusion. The envisioned data fusion solutions will incorporate all relevant ISR&T contextual information including but not limited to all sensors, social media trends, public statements and intelligence. We are looking for engineers, mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists who collectively can provide the needed experience and skills in data fusion, machine learning algorithms, and signal processing to achieve these goals.


As a Senior Sensor Data Fusion Professional…


  • You will contribute to the development of advanced data fusion algorithms, using physics-based knowledge of various sensors and prototyping those algorithms when possible
  • You will help to integrate sensor fusion with intelligent sensor control algorithms designed to provide on-demand levels of quality of service in support of targeting
  • Apply state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to exploit as much information as possible from all data sources
  • Apply advanced computer science techniques to signal and image processing to enable processing at the edge
  • Interact and collaborate across the services and communities involved in multi-domain ISR to achieve breakthrough improvements in capability
  • Investigate new sensing modalities for applicability in ISR&T data fusion

You meet the minimum qualifications for this position if you have:



  • A Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science
  • At least 5 years of relevant professional work experience related to the ISR&T activities described above
  • Have some domain knowledge in ISR&T architectures, data fusion, sensors, and platforms
  • Experience with C, C++, Python, MATLAB, and/or Java
  • Have the ability to work effectively on technical teams to solve complex problems
  • Excellent communications skills, both written and verbal
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Hold an active Secret security clearance and can ultimately obtain a TS/SCI level clearance.  If selected, you will be subject to a government security clearance investigation and must meet the requirements for access to classified information.  Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship.
  • Willingness to travel up to 10% of the time as needed
  • Can demonstrate that you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To ensure the safety and well-being of the community, APL has established a policy requiring that all staff be vaccinated against COVID-19. All staff members must provide proof of full vaccination or have an approved medical or religious accommodation by their start date.


You’ll go above and beyond our minimum requirements if you have:



  • An MS or PhD in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science
  • At least 10 years of relevant professional experience in this field
  • Experience with advanced data fusion algorithms involving dissimilar sensors
  • Deep experience with sensor signal and image processing algorithms and processing platforms
  • An Active TS/SCI clearance


Why work at APL?


At APL, we celebrate our differences and encourage creativity and bold, new ideas. Our employees enjoy generous benefits, including a robust education assistance program, unparalleled retirement contributions, and a healthy work/life balance. APL’s campus is located in the Baltimore-Washington metro area.

APL is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability status, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
