Under general supervision, incumbents must have course work in the discipline requested on the task order Statement of Work.


The purpose of this task is to provide analytical and technical support services from students majoring in the fields of Computer Science, Information Systems, Electrical Engineer or Computer Engineering for the Command and Control Processor (C2P) Modernization (Mod) project. The purpose of this project is to provide support in the areas of software testing, automated test script development, and full software development lifecycle for the C2P Mod system.


The C2P Mod Integrated Product Team (IPT) is responsible for development of the C2P Mod system that supports tactical message routing for execution of Ballistic Missile Defense and Anti-Air Warfare missions aboard Navy ships and limited shore sites around the world. C2P Mod will primarily be developed in C++ programming language over a 4-year period of time partitioned in 5 increments where each segment of the code will go through extensive test and verification by a separate, and independent team. The current plan is to use cloud technologies as a basis for a testdriven development methodology, whereby software developers will create unit, or software component tests prior to submission into the build pipeline, that will then launch a series of automated code quality checks as well
