Developed and maintain the System Security Plan (SSP) documentation for the networks. Implement and enforce the Information System’s security policies. Develop the network’s user account control plan, Trusted Facility’s Manual (Administrator’s Guide), and systems user’s guide. In addition, CRL Technologies support daily maintenance/troubleshooting for domain servers. Install operating system/application updates and patches pertaining to computer security. Manage domain server network/disk resources, security, user access and disaster recovery backup and restore operations (Retrospect / Veritas Backup Exec) on multiple servers. Maintain security/access on servers within in the DMZ. Plan and implement networking for small workgroup of computers. Troubleshoot problems through phone/online support. Document and test procedures for installation of software, configurations and recovery processes.
3.14 Interoperability/T&E/Trials: The CRL Team coordinates and facilitates Mode 5 testing and certification. In addition, CRL reviews and validates flight test plans ensuring all requirements are met to implement the system within the established timeline.
3.16 Logistics Support: The CRL Team provides comprehensive logistics support to Communication, Navigation, and Identification (CNI), Core Avionics, EO/IR and RADAR Integrated Product Teams (IPTs). Performs Configuration Control, participates in document generation/review, design reviews and board actions; prepares Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs) and coordinates with the PMA-265 CM Team for ECP action.
3.17 Supply & Provisioning: The CRL Team provides logistical support to PMA-265 for the retrofit of the F/A-18. Tracks and issues Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) and Digital Communication Systems (DCS) kits along with associated kits required during incorporation. Other kits managed include Miniature Airborne Global Receiver (MAGR), Embedded Global Positioning System (GPS)/Internal Navigation System (INS) (EGI) and Combined Interrogator/Transponder (CIT) Identification Friend or Foe (IFF).
3.19 In-Service Eng: The CRL Team provides support to PMA265 for fleet interface of legacy and new development cryptologic systems for F/A-18 fleet utilization.
