We are seeking TS/SCI candidates who will perform Back-End software development and integration in support of various NGA internal startup incubators. The aim is to help internal teams build and test ideas/products, from a minimum viable product all the way to an application version 1.
A typical project could involve design, development, and integration of an automation tool to allow analysts to rapidly generate structured imagery observations, and to automatically fuse those observations with spatially enabled multi-INT collateral reporting. Such a tool could fuse these data streams, and will also use GEOINT observations to validate multi-INT reporting. Project may require integration of machine learning engines to fuse imagery points with multiple data streams, build a Bayesian Network to fuse and validate multiple data streams, or just build a web application.
