Perspecta Labs

Perspecta Labs generates transformative applied research to fuel solutions for our customers unique challenges. We are a self-sustaining research center within Perspecta that provides applied research and engineering to enable government agencies, utilities and commercial enterprises to fully exploit the future of communications, analytics and cyber security.


We are developing intelligent network operations software with an automated failover mechanism to assist networks to overcome limitations, improve the ability to sense, and adapt the network quickly to real-time dynamic changes in the environment in different threat and mission scenarios. Intelligent switching through alternative communications links will allow the network to be more resilient in a contested and congested environment, reduce the time to configure networks, and allow all phases of mission operations to be executed effectively. By automating the network behavior, our software will allow the network to be aware of the environment and hence will make the network resilient due to changing factors, such as node movement, terrain interference, intentional / unintentional signal interference, and network congestion.

This position involves applied technology testing in diverse areas related to wireless systems architectures and protocols. Lab equipment setup, configuration, troubleshooting, networking software testing in disconnected, intermittent wireless environments. This position involves simulation of tactical network conditions, and capturing and analyzing network data from diverse hardware and software components.

Primary work location is Basking Ridge, NJ. Candidate may alternatively take an office in Red Bank NJ, but we cannot eliminate the requirement to work in Basking Ridge at times. Telecommuting is permitted, but not full-time telecommuting. Hands-on work in lab will be required at times. Travel to Maryland required, estimated at 10-20%.
