Responsibilities/Qualification

Position Summary

The JS J7 JTSE Developer is responsible for the life-cycle software engineering of JTT behavior models, architecture, user interface, utilities and development environment to meet JTSE Program Manager objectives. 

One of the key components of the JTSE is the legacy Joint, Live, Virtual, Constructive (JLVC) simulation federation, a combination of Service, Agency, Functional, and Management applications linked via the High Level Architecture through the Run Time Infrastructure (RTI) middleware to enable operations and data exchange between simulations regardless of their computing platforms.  Evolving from the JLVC is the JS J7 produced Joint Training Tools (JTT) representing a precursor environment focused on providing a single digital environment to support training, from event planning through execution. JTT reflects a modernization effort to shift from monolithic stove-piped training systems to a training environment developed using the development approach for modular, open systems architecture as described in the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Open System Architecture Contract Guidebook for Program Managers. This approach uses commercial web-based technology, open source software to the maximum extent possible, and recognized technical standards.

The JS J7 JTSE Software Development team is directly responsible, in this context, for developing and maintaining technical solutions and standards to provide the greatest level of training capability to the warfighter, at the lowest possible cost, at the fastest pace achievable.
