Internet Protocol (IP)

  • Integrate medical applications with Internet Protocol (IP) based communication devices to enable transmission of medical information between source and destination systems.
  • Examples of IP-based communication devices include: 4G Cellular systems and data capable tactical radios systems running various versions of the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) software defined radio wave forms (e.g. Soldier Radio Waveform, Wideband Network Waveform, Advanced Network Wideband Waveform).

Software Engineering

  • Provide software engineering support to the execution of Government-led Risk Management Framework processes to achieve the appropriate cyber-security approval to operate the software components of research projects on the classified network, unclassified network, or both as specified by the Government for each research project.
  • This software engineer support shall include development and implementation of software engineering changes to remediate vulnerabilities in Government development applications that support TATRC research objectives.

Reporting and Briefing

  • Develop, plan, report and conduct briefings detailing recommendations and information for technical and management reports for software capabilities of interest to the government to meet research objectives.

Identification of Beneficial Software

  • The Contractor shall evaluate and integrate 3rd party advanced software applications as identified by the Government during pursuit of research projects and research objectives.

Deployment – Operational Telemedicine Exercises, Projects and Events

  • Provide technical support for developed software to Operational Telemedicine (OPTMED) exercises, projects and events, going on Temporary Duty (TDY) for extended periods of time, usually not to exceed 30 days. Most exercises take place in CONUS, and contractors will be housed in local hotels.
