Software Engineer: The software engineer will contribute to a wide variety of projects as our business needs evolve.

The work may include requirements gathering, DSP or FPGA design, firmware development, software testing and debugging, embedded development, modeling & simulations development, and even C++ and Java software applications development.

In our group we do wear a lot of hats and as our business and product needs change our engineers will jump from DSP or firmware to VHDL or to MatLab simulations and sometimes to C++ or Java applications development as well. This broad mix technical needs creates a great opportunity for our team members to build their skills sets and broaden their backgrounds rather than being limited to just one skill set.

This skilled and astute software engineering professional will be responsible for:
-embedded software or firmware development activities related to real-time digital signal processing equipment or embedded systems.

- will perform the research, design, development, and testing of COTS or custom computing and real time signal processing firmware / software applications.

- will be responsible for performing software/firmware development assignments from requirements through final testing.

-will work with domain experts and military documentation to define requirements, use cases, and sequence diagrams.

-will design system components using Object Oriented methods.

-will implement components in C++.

-will take a great interest and will carefully document software design and development activities.

-ability to take responsibility for increasingly difficult tasks, complete them on schedule and document and present the results will be very helpful in this position.

-ability to apply design patterns and object oriented programming will be developed.

-may be assigned to support Six Sigma style cross functional product development or process improvement teams and contribute to those team's collective efforts.

Unlike many other software engineering roles our role will offer the opportunity to develop software applications in C++ and Java so if you like software development in addition to the more typical software engineering duties this role will be great for you.

An interest in learning more about and leveraging IBM Rational ClearCase, DOORS, J2EE Development, XML, Service Oriented Architectures, WEB Services, distributed computer architectures, Web-based architectures, or OMG’s CORBA products would also offer additional synergy for us.

We offer a continuous learning environment with strong career growth and advancement opportunities.

Mission Planning Engineer:This position is for an experienced professional engineer to become a member of the Software Engineering COE, as part of the Mission Planner (MP) Software development team. The engineer will report directly to the MP software manager and will be responsible for achieving program commitments.

The engineer will:
- provide MP technical support and perform MP software development assignments from requirements analysis through final testing in the area of Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD), Anti-air Warfare (AAW), or Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) scenarios as part of the Aegis Weapon System (AWS).

-will work with domain experts and military documentation to define requirements, use cases, sequence diagrams, design system components using Object Oriented methods, implement MP scenarios in C++ and/or Java, and document software designs and development.

-will be responsible for following the appropriate standards, processes, and procedures throughout the software development life cycle.
