Provides combination of mission, protocol, and system level experiences to influence successful development efforts. The Operational SME assists in the development, sustainment, and operational deployment effort of protocol exploitation, user visualization in diverse usage scenarios.
The Operational SME also influences test strategy selection, multi-sensor usage scenarios and actively engages military services, intelligence teams, technical staff, and mission capability sponsors, with the integrated solutions within threat-environments. Analyze user requirements to derive software design and performance requirements Debug existing software and correct defects
