Our team provides software engineering support to the AH-64D APACHE attack helicopter program at the Software Build Environment (SBE) Lab. This includes providing support maintenance and continued improvements of the embedded operational flight software (OFP) for the “brains” of the helicopter, creation of the testbed for independent verification and validation software changes (CTE), as well as the actual independent verification and validation of these software changes.
Our software engineers in the Sensor, Test, Analysis, Requirements, & Simulation (STARS) program support the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) by providing analysis and improvements to the nations radar systems. HigherEchelon provides support in all phases of the software development cycle, including software specification and requirements, software design, software coding, and software testing. HigherEchelon provides support for design, implementation, and verification of software systems, subsystems, components, and tools possessing significant functionality.
Our software and systems engineers support technology created by the Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) – Aviation & Missile Center to increase soldier readiness and expand the US Marine Corps’ targeting efforts and capabilities. The BOSS program develops, design, and enhances critical software products such as the Target Handoff System Version 2 (THS V2), and the Maneuver, Aviation and Fires Integrated Application (MAFIA). These products support maneuver planning, fires planning, precision targeting, route planning and navigation for our military.
