This code is used in a variety of US Navy and Leidos systems. Software is developed in both Windows and Linux environments, using various software packages. Software development will include design, code, unit test, integration test, verification and validation. Candidate will develop sophisticated, real-time software to enhance bathymetric survey capabilities. Work will include the development of new code and the maintenance and extension of existing code.
