Employment Opportunities at Malin Space Science Systems

Since 1990, Malin Space Science Systems (MSSS) of San Diego, California has been designing, developing, operating, and conducting scientific research with space camera systems onboard various spacecraft.

MSSS cameras include those aboard Mars Observer (MO), Mars Global Survyeor (MGS), Mars Polar Lander (MPL), Mars Climate Orbiter (MCO), Mars Odyssey (ODY), the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), Cosmos 1, the Phoenix Mars Lander (PHX), and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).

Currently, MSSS has cameras on the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover, Curiosity, that landed on Mars August 5, 2012 and the Juno mission to Jupiter, which launched August 2011. In 2006, MSSS completed 10 years of operation of the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) and began operating the Mars Color Imager (MARCI) and Context Camera (CTX) aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The MSSS web site (http://www.msss.com/) includes descriptions of these projects, as well as samples of recent images returned from Mars.
