Remote access will be available to support individual testing or tests may be included in nightly batch testing. A combination of the two methods should be used to expedite test completion and data reviews

The engineer will perform the following tasks:
• Develop or revise Flight Control System software high level (requirements-based) test cases and seed scripts to generate bench test scripts and verification procedures, to the standard and level of coverage established by the existing test package
• Coordinate with the cognizant designer(s) on the Bell staff to ensure full test coverage, correct expected results, and communication / disposition of test findings.
• Execute the developed or modified tests in the V-280 System Integration Lab environment, both as part of the test development process and for regression purposes as required.
• Review test verification results and test time history data, both for test development and for other investigative troubleshooting
