Lockheed Martin's C-130J Avionics/Software Integrated Product Team (IPT) creates software that runs a wide variety of systems on the C-130J aircraft. This team develops embedded safety-critical real-time air vehicle software and a ground-based data analysis system for aircraft analysis. The IPT operates within the infrastructure of the C-130J Software Factory, which consists of Sun workstations and PCs networked to Web servers, a configuration management server, an aircraft simulator implemented in software, and laboratories are composed of the aircraft's hardware mounted in equipment racks for easy access. The article discusses the IPT's diverse education and training needs, focusing on how to address shortfalls in conventional computer science and engineering education that result in mismatched expectations between the new hire and the company.
