HX5 is an award-winning provider of technical services to clients such as NASA and the DoD.  Founded in 2004, HX5 is fast- growing and has over 500 employees located around the U.S.
HX5 is seeking qualified applicants to serve as the Diagnostics Researcher at Moffett Field, CA.
The Intelligent Systems Research and Development Support (ISRDS) contract supports NASA Ames Research Center in developing and infusing advanced information systems technology into NASA missions. Our scientists, engineers and information technologists support research and development of critical enabling intelligent technologies for all the NASA Mission Directorates.
This SGT‐led team has supported technology development for NASA space exploration missions such as LADEE and TESS, supports payload development for the International Space Station, and develops robotics and autonomous operations technologies for lunar and planetary exploration. ISRDS engineers provide support in aeronautics for autonomous operations of unmanned systems and for meeting the challenges of expanding capacity in the aviation industry.
This opportunity will explore novel diagnostics methods that face the challenge of operating for large fault spaces (thousands of fault modes) with the need to execute fast in constrained computational environment – such as those encountered in space environments, where computational equipment needs to be radiation hardened and typically lacks the clock speed and memory of modern chips.
Experience and Knowledge
  • A Ph. D. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or other fields
  • Expert understanding of state-of-the-art theoretical approaches to diagnostics such as:
    • Distributed diagnostics, sequential diagnostics, arborescent architectures, disambiguating knowledge, model-based diagnosis, hybrid systems, hypotheses discrimination, inference-based diagnosis, active diagnosis, qualitative reasoning, and others
  • Comfortable coding in MATLAB, Python, C, C++, and able to integrate research quality work into the production environment
  • Familiarity with proposal writing and development
*Must be able to successfully complete a U.S. government background investigation
