Position, Navigation, and Timing Engineer

Job Type

Full Time / Part Time / Intern / Consultant

About the Role

Assured navigation and positioning. Assist with maturing, verifying, and deploying radar-based position, navigation, and timing (PNT) techniques to obtain high-precision GPS-agnostic self-localization solutions. Candidate should have strong experience with Kalman filtering, navigation, IMU integration, and synchronization techniques. Additional RF experience is a plus.


The Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Engineer position is available in part-time, full-time, intern, and consultant capacities.

The candidate preferrably resides in the Ann Arbor region (remote location may be possible in some circumstances) and be able to support occasional field testing and data collection events. Some travel may be required.

A successful candidate has excellent communication skills, a solid engineering background, and a strong interest in autonomous vehicles, navigation, and/or radar sensing.

Please send applications to, including a cover letter specifying why you think you are a good fit for Aloft Sensing, Inc. and its mission.

About the Company

Formed in early 2020, Aloft Sensing, Inc. applies algorithmic solutions to breakthrough hardware to create novel sensor modules capable of providing exquisite self-localization information while simultaneously mapping the surrounding environment at high resolution. The resulting products benefit applications that require reliable high-precision positioning data for full autonomy, as well as applications that require detailed 4-D imagery for situational awareness.

Our scalable sensor modules are designed to pair with vehicles spanning the automotive, rail, underwater, aerial, stratospheric, and space domains. Platforms range from micro-UUVs operating underwater to ground vehicles, low-altitude UAVs, stratospheric aircraft, hypersonic re-entry vehicles, and satellites operating from low Earth orbit. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Aloft Sensing, Inc. is well poised to transform the way Earth observation, tactical ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance), and assured PNT (Positioning, Navigation, and Timing) data are collected.

Aloft Sensing, Inc. is a new Ann Arbor company with technology at the forefront of the radar sensing, assured navigation, and autonomous vehicle industries. We maintain a high performing and collaborative work environment, where each member has a chance to make an immediate impact. We are looking for a talented person to join our team!
