Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Modeling and Simulations of Active Protection Systems for Combat Vehicles The Applied Physics Branch of the US Army Research Laboratory is looking for applicants to perform research in the area of Active Protection Systems (APS) for combat vehicles. An end-to-end APS scenario consists of threat launch, detection, tracking, filtering, fire controls, countermeasure launch, detonation, and engagement. Attributes of many APS components and events exhibit random characteristics, such as probability of detection, measurement noises, threat trajectories, aim point dispersion, fuze activation timing, etc. Two categories of research are sought and both will support ongoing development of a software suite for APS modeling and simulations. Research in the first category may be chosen from one of the areas: (1) APS model verification, validation and uncertainty quantification; (2) Artificial intelligence based cooperative protection network for maximum survivability and minimum collateral damages. Applicants for the research category should possess a Ph.D. in applied math, computer science, physics, engineering or a related discipline. Research in the second category may be chosen from one of the areas: (1) Sensor modeling; (2) Countermeasure modeling; and (3) Database management. Applicants for the research category should possess strong C++ programming skills and/or knowledge in database design, and should be undergraduate juniors or above in engineering, computer science, physics or a related discipline. All research will be performed at Adelphi Laboratory Center, 2800 Powder Mill Road, Adelphi, Maryland. All fellowships are open to U.S. Citizens only.
