This position is to provide systems engineering support to systems that provide a cohesive navigation and tactical C2 capability to client assets. The system is based on a common architecture which is integrated and synchronized across three, otherwise independent, applications. This integrated system provides operational users with a common tactical picture of the maritime domain enabling them to make fast and effective decisions during high-risk shipboard operations. This forms the backbone that provides the operators with situational awareness at sea for effective execution of missions. Another application provides the Maritime Domain Awareness to meet the information needs of operational decision makers at sea, on shore, and in the air. This application gathers, processes, and presents real-time, near real-time, and stored mission critical information to aid in mission planning, coordination, and prosecution using a Common Operational Picture (COP) that is shared among clients.

These systems require developmental, testing, and integration support due to a continuously evolving system of systems design maintenance. This is currently achieved through the use of Agile Development Methodologies (e.g., Scrum) with multiple sprint teams supporting development and IA patching.
