Provide installation, testing, operation, and support of operational and training systems. Design and develop solutions to technical problems and issues that arise.

Serve in a technical "reach-back" support role: respond to problems reported by field users; resolve as appropriate; coordinate with the engineering team as needed; and implement necessary security fixes or software upgrades.

Design, develop, and implement solutions to new customer requirements in support of component development/integration, resources, COOP, and other engineering support tasks

Prepare reports and develop manuals and other documentation on the status, operation and maintenance of software as required for internal and external stakeholders.
