Where You Will Work
Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security. LANL enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.
The Space Electronics and Signal Processing group (ISR-4) in the Intelligence and Space Research (ISR) Division( space.lanl.gov )designs,develops, and flies highly innovative electronic systems for space payloads that detect nuclear detonations and nonproliferation signatures around the world. Working closely with technicians, mechanical engineers, software engineers and space scientists, we have developed instrument electronic systemsfor many DOE and NASA missions including: detection payloads on GPS satellites,ChemCam on the Mars Curiosity Rover, NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn, and Mars Odyssey mission to Mars. We are currently developing the electronics for next generation nuclear detection and nonproliferation systems and the SuperCam and SHERLOC instruments on NASA’s Mars 2020 rover. Projects are executed through a close interaction between all disciplines of engineers, technicians, andscientists which fosters a highly creative and dynamic research and development environment. Projects within ISR division are developed from concept to operational support after launch or field deployment.
