  • Overview

    This Statement of Work covers the need for the services of a college student to provide technical and/or analytical support in the field of Physics or Mathematical Sciences with a focus on atmospheric science for the Directed Energy-Joint Technology Office Atmospheric Characterization project. The purpose of this project is to develop sensors and models to predict atmospheric effects on laser beams.


    • The contractor shall assist the work sponsor in analysis of data products obtained from numerical weather prediction (NWP) for the prediction of laser propagation;
    • Perform data analysis and timeseries analysis of data acquired by various optical atmospheric probes includingpyrheliometers, radiometers, and other meteorological sensors. This shall include obtaining expertise in separation of signal from noise.
    • Use a structured programming language to build a model for the phenomena measured by the atmospheric instruments and generate analysis and results from the comparison of data with model. Use comments to document programs I scripts. Learn and apply coding strategies that improve modularity and traceability.


    Undergraduate Level 1: Physics or Mathematical Sciences (Freshman or Sophomore)


    Required Course Work:

    • Calculus 3
    • Intro Linear Algebra



    This is a student position and is limited to working 20 hours per week
