The HFGCS software engineering group is looking for a co-op with the desire to be part of a dedicated team responsible for software development activities associated with an existing ground-based radio communication system. Voice switching services within the system allow radio operators to individually support two-way voice and data communications with mobile and other fixed radio platforms worldwide. The management system is based on a custom software application utilizing multiple databases to control and manage a variety of HF radio, antenna, and peripheral components using serial and Ethernet data protocols. The primary control network is a TCP/IP computer network using commercially available IP routers and Microsoft Windows servers and workstations within a single Active Directory Domain to host the control application.
