Location: Remote

Engagement: Contract


Role Description:

The RTU Test Engineer is responsible for performing and coordinating test prep and executions to validate that the system under test (D-SCADA/ADMS) is accurately interfacing with OT/RTU field telemetry across multiple protocols including DNP, Modbus, and CDCII.


Simulation Testing:

  • Configure ASE2000 V2 to simulate real field RTUs and their associated points – status, analog, and accumulator
  • Work with the project System Integration (SI) Team to connect ASE2000 so the simulator can be scanned by the D-SCADA system (OSI Monarch)
  • Perform point-to-point testing between D-SCADA and the simulated RTU including supervisory control verifications and confirmation of status changes initiated at the simulated RTU
  • Verify handling of telemetry error/communication error handling, point quality (color), analog/accumulator accuracy, and alarming within D-SCADA


Listen Mode Testing:

  • Work with the SI Team to develop and implement a set of procedural and technical controls that ensure the safety and integrity of the existing Production system while the replacement D-SCADA/ADMS system is put into and taken out of Listen Mode

  • Coordinate and lead testing using virtual meetings to engage all parties
  • Report status of test progress both in writing and on team calls


Required Skills:

  • Familiarity with SCADA OT and RTU systems
  • Required experience setting up SCADA systems and ASE2000 simulation and monitoring features to interact and emulate DNP protocol at a minimum. Experience with other protocols area plus
