Software is everywhere, including almost every piece of gear our warfighters operate and rely on, and it is constantly changing, as technology advances and new requirements emerge. Gnostech’s longstanding challenge has been to provide rapid availability, reliability, code quality and security while these requirements are constantly evolving. Gnostech developers have consistently risen to the occasion and solved the warfighter’s software challenges for the past 40 years.
As far back as our Global Positioning System (GPS) roots, Gnostech was already providing software development services. We’ve seen the evolution of Department of Defense (DoD) established software development standards, and we adapted quickly to stay ahead of emerging software approaches, tools, and industry best practices. Today, our corporate software development facilities and infrastructure meet Development Security Operations (DevSecOps) criteria and use tools that allow Gnostech software engineers and developers to write code in an Agile development environment.
Over the years, Gnostech engineers have developed tailored solutions for a variety of applications, including cybersecurity, mission planning, combat systems, and Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) systems. This longevity stems from our ability to identify critical functional requirements and quickly develop solutions to provide the warfighter with increased operational capabilities. Gnostech identifies small pain points in programs—splinters. The little things day in and day out that cause user issues and aggravation. Gnostech has always recognized that we have the ability to painlessly remove splinters and cause great relief to these programs through our niche solutions.
Here is just one of our success stories… We’ve been alleviating pain points with our software and hardware solutions for the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Strike Planning and Execution Program Office (PMA-281) since 1997. One such example is the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) Simplified Installation and Maintenance (J-SIM) solution that Gnostech prototyped in 2003. J-SIM significantly reduces the complexity and time required to load a JMPS Mission Planning Environment (MPE). Prior to J-SIM, the loading process was manual and took approximately 5 hours to perform. J-SIM automates the process and reduces it to one hour. Since being adopted as the JMPS program’s automated software loading solution, Gnostech created dozens of J-SIM builds for both domestic and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers. Gnostech also developed the J-SIM Domain Integration Tools to automate the integration of the JMPS clients into the Integrated Shipboard Network System (ISNS)/Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES) shipboard networks.
We’re proud of our software solution successes and will continue to develop those niche solutions that most benefit our warfighters. If you’d like to learn more, please visit Gnostech’s solution page.
