*Riverside Research has an immediate opening for a Senior GEOINT/Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) Image Scientist with an emphasis on MATLAB software expertise. This position will be working with OPIR data sources in the NGIC, VA area.

Job Responsibilities:
Duties will involve operational capabilities with the following:
• Works directly for U.S. Government (USG) OPIR experts translating their repeatable exploitation tactics, techniques, and procedures into user friendly tools and GUI using MATLAB
• Develops and tests algorithms to improve sensor performance to enhance exploitation
• Works the continuum of remote sensing and applies image science and remote sensing production and development solutions to meet USG intelligence requirements
• Improves upon exiting MATLAB based sub-pixel processing capabilities
• Developing and advancing the capabilities of spectral, hyperspectral, OPIR, IR collection, processing, and detection systems
• Interpreting results from onboard and offline algorithms and automated processors in order to address intelligence requirements
• Employing non-literal methods, techniques, and processes in order to address intelligence requirements
• Extracting information from a dataset that cannot be discerned via literal (visual) methods and providing context and meaning to information for intelligence purposes
• Position is projected to require 15 days or less of travel per year
• Perform other duties as assigned

In order to qualify for this position, your resume must provide sufficient experience and/or education, knowledge, skills, and abilities, to perform the duties of the specific position for which you are being considered.

• Must have active in-scope TS/SCI Security clearance

• At least five years of specific experience using MATLAB, preferably in a GEOINT/remote sensing environment/setting
• At least 4 years of experience with C, C++
• At least 5 years of experience using ENVI
• Thorough familiarity with operational and R&D remote sensing imaging and non-imaging systems (e.g., multispectral, hyperspectral, thermal, radar, OPIR, and infrared)
• At least 5 years of experience working in an operational production setting exploiting data from within the GEOINT domain, including use of software-based exploitation tools such as ENVI and ERDAS Imagine
• At least 10 years of past or current Intelligence Community (IC) experience, U.S. Army Intelligence, or other Service U.S. Intelligence
• Comprehensive understanding of the phenomenology associated with the VIS through LWIR spectral region and SAR data is required with an emphasis on recent experience in the exploitation and/or algorithm development for spectral, hyperspectral, thermal, overhead persistent infrared (OPIR) and/or synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data
• Good grasp of National and Theater related GEOINT intelligence assets
• Understanding of ground, airborne and space-based spectral collection platforms and collection methods
• In special cases, commiserate experience shall be accepted in lieu of educational requirements at the approval and discretion of the Government customer

Desired Qualifications:
• Remote Sensing or related “primer” courses
• Remote Sensing or related processing courses
• Workshop or geospatial intelligence analytical thinking
• NGA, Services, AFIT or equivalent training in GEOINT and MASINT
• ERDAS Imagine, Common Spectral MASINT Exploitation Capability (COSMEC), or Remote View training
• Prior experience as a customer using or familiarity with the Army’s GEOINT Enterprise TPED Service (GETS)
• Experience working in an operational production environment using the GEOINT Enterprise TPED Service (GETS) or similar production system(s)
