Full Job Description
Lincoln Laboratory serves as the scientific advisor to the Reagan Test Site at the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll installation located about 2,500 miles WSW of Hawaii. Fifteen staff members, accompanied by their families, work at this site for two- to three-year tours of duty. The site’s radars, optical, and telemetry sensors support ballistic missile defense testing and space surveillance. The radar systems provide test facilities for radar technology development and for the development of ballistic missile defense techniques. The Laboratory also supports upgrades to the command-and-control infrastructure of the range to include real-time discrimination and decision aids.
We are seeking a science, math, or engineering student interested in working on technical projects alongside our staff. We have active efforts in areas such as additive manufacturing and prototyping of RF components, characterizing atmospheric impacts on radar and optical systems, and developing and testing novel sensing modalities. Interested students must already have sponsorship and housing on Kwajalein for the duration of the internship.
