Torch Technologies, Inc. is seeking candidates to work as part of a research and prototyping team to explore adapting emerging Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven technologies to provide intelligence augmentation (IA) for weapon systems engineering, prototyping, and operations. When supporting systems engineering and prototyping, the IA capabilities will deliver causal intelligence that dynamically recognizes changing design or behavior patterns to assist design engineers with applying cumulative knowledge to new design assessment situations. When supporting system operations, the IA capabilities will cover a broad scope of operator decision making including deployment planning, mission collaboration, and weapon control. We are looking for motivated candidates to work on adapting AI technologies to improve operator efficacy when using defensive weapon systems.

As an AI engineer, the ideal candidate will interact daily with system and technology experts to define a problem, identify an appropriate AI technology to solve it, train the AI algorithms with the correct data, and then verify that the results are valid. The candidate will also assist with the transition of AI technologies to other teams for integration into operational systems. This includes developing methods to carefully manage the evolution of the AI algorithms over time, so they don't degrade overall system performance. The candidate will extend IA methods and tools to align with emerging practices for Mission Engineering. These IA methods and tools will be used throughout the system acquisition lifecycle from concept exploration and early prototyping to field operations. The candidate will also explore how IA can be used to reduce cognitive overload in complex weapon employment scenarios. The ideal candidate will have familiarity with modeling and simulation (M&S) for generating synthetic data.

As an AI engineer, the candidate will be responsible for:
  • Exploringhow AI technologies can be adapted and used to enhance and augment human capabilities for determining technical readiness of complex systems.
  • Implementing research strategies to use intelligence augmentation to increase weapon operator efficiency and improve overall system mission performance.
  • Exploring innovative approaches to implementing AI-driven technologies to augment the work of engineers designing and building complex systems, and the operators using these systems in various mission contexts
  • Working with a team of researchers to establish a knowledge center for developing and refining AI technologies to deliver IA capability.
  • Assessing the impacts of autonomy on mission operations and developing strategies to create IA algorithms to mitigate operator shortcomings in managing autonomous systems.
  • Devising sustainable approaches to assess maturity of AI algorithms proposed for integration into complex weapon systems.
  • Proactively maintaining awareness of state-of-the practice AI technologies; and making informed recommendations for incorporating new algorithms and approaches into system designs.
  • Exploring criteria, methods, and corresponding tools to assess the ethical application of AI technologies embedded within system designs, incorporate aspects of algorithmic fairness as part of assessment criteria.


Job Requirements

  • A passion for working with AI and ML technologies.
  • Bachelors degree in a technical discipline (Masters preferred) from an ABET accredited university.
  • Familiarity with open source AI algorithm development tools.
  • Must have the ability to obtain and maintain a DoD security clearance.
