Full-time
The Mapping & Localization team at Anduril is developing algorithms for reliable pose estimation in challenging, remote environments. We combine real-time fusion of visual and inertial data with locally cached maps to enable autonomous navigation under any conditions. Lattice Ghost UAS is equipped with powerful on-board compute capabilities to perform factor graph optimization at the edge, ensuring the latest sensor data is interpreted quickly. Our engineers research and field-test localization algorithms with an eye on performance and reliability. Mapping & localization engineers at Anduril develop innovative software for GPS-denied navigation and remote autonomy.
