Full Time Employee Contractor
CGI Federal has a career opportunity for a talented Test Engineer at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD to support a critical modernization effort of the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS) in order to satisfy the vision of Program Executive Office (PEO) Command Control Communications - Tactical (C3T) and Project Manager Mission Command.

AFATDS enables the automatic application of the Force Commander?s guidance in the Fires Warfighting Function to plan, execute, and deliver effects at all levels of command within the current and future force. AFATDS can automatically tailor the selection of fire support assets (field artillery, mortars, close air support, naval gunfire, attack helicopters, and offensive electronic warfare assets) based on the Commander?s guidance, thereby enabling maximum effective use of all available fire support assets across the full spectrum of conflict.
