Department Description:

The Center for Analysis Systems and Applications (CASA) is an internship program that gives students the opportunity to develop next-generation software systems for compelling national security missions. Interns work alongside professional staff on some of the most complex and challenging data analysis problems that our nation faces. Collaborate with a team of software engineering experts developing a variety of significant mission applications, including remote sensing, data analysis, and real-time applications. Projects range from small R&D efforts to large, multi-disciplinary teams developing software for large, complex integrated systems.

The CASA program is managed on behalf of the Systems Mission Engineering Center (6300). We are responsible for the analysis, design, and implementation of complex data analysis systems associated with multi-sensor and heterogeneous sensor applications to assist in the detection, location, and characterization of events and activities of interest. Our work involves the research and development of algorithms and applications that assist users in the processing, exploitation and dissemination of data and information for compelling nonproliferation and national security missions. We create first-of-a-kind data analysis systems, subsystems, and analysis tools to provide innovative solutions for our customers that others cannot achieve. We design, build, deploy, and enhance analysis systems that transform data to information to knowledge to decisions. These systems are targeted for a range of applications, including: remote sensing systems; data acquisition, management, and fusion; distributed computing and analysis; modeling and simulation; and both real-time and off-line data processing, analysis, exploitation and dissemination.

Skills within the center include: systems analysis and engineering; software engineering and development; data analysis, interrogation and exploitation; advanced digital signal processing; geophysics and seismology; modeling and simulation; development for Multicore and GPU; and algorithm development and implementation.

*These benefits vary by job classification.

Security Clearance:

Position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) L-level security clearance.

Sandia is required by DOE to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment must be able to obtain and maintain a DOE L-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.

Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by the DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.

EEO Statement:

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
