The Android software front-end integrates with the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) with Java being the primary development language. The back-end development of the software suite uses C++.
The goal of the BAO software is to improve the performance of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) Special Tactics (ST), Tactical Air Control Party (TACP), and Personnel Recovery operators during target acquisition and control, combat search and rescue, and personnel recovery operations, reducing potential for errors, enhancing the safety and security of friendly forces, and, ultimately, reducing the risks of fratricide.

The tailored Agile software development process includes understanding software requirements and use cases, designing software architectures and user interfaces, implementing source code to design specifications, testing developed software to include unit tests, and updating software documentation as appropriate.
Additionally, the position requires the ability to analyze, debug, and correct reported issues and enhancements. A successful candidate must possess strong software development skills throughout the software development life cycle and work well in a collaborative team environment.
