NASA Armstrong is seeking novel ways to manage its vast amounts of data and information to improve user access, efficiency, and retention. The NASA environment is perhaps unique in the scope of its information operations. Users generate and require access to a variety of data types including test (ground and flight), programmatic, operations, organizational, and multimedia data that typically have multiple, independent storage, access and retrieval solutions. The opportunity exists to greatly improve the capability and efficiency of Armstrong data management. This assignment focuses on user interface and user experience to the system; the system is an enterprise architecture, and for the purposes of this solicitation is named the "Portal." The development of the visualization of information will help users locate and access various test data files. Ultimately, this increased and faster access to test data files will result in significantly increased research activities and research potential. Goals include conducting iterative user discussions to incorporate user requirements, developing user desires and requirements into the Portal, developing built-in tutorials (mouse-over tooltips, "help" functions, etc.), and integrating all the developed functionality into the prototype Portal. The more intuitive and user friendly the Portal is, the greater success and greater utilized the system will be. The intern will research and compare available tools that can be potentially integrated with the Portal system. The intern will utilize enterprise development practices. Intern developers will work directly with the developers on the Portal project - applying advanced software techniques and utilizing modern computational systems. They will participate in a large, IT development project and will have access to NASA Armstrong's flight test, simulation, and lab data. Subject matter experts will be available to assist in various aspects of the assignment. Requirements Proficiency in the following is highly desired: Java, JavaScript, JQuery, J2EE, XML. Competency in some of the following is 'nice to have': Web Services, JSP, HTML5, XHTML, Netbeans, Eclipse, Schemas, Spring, JSF, Struts, AJAX, Bootstrap, Styling/CSS, Ember.js, AngularJS, Node.js, ASM.js, CSS, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Expected Opportunity Outcome Recommendations for proposed knowledge management improvements. Intern will have the opportunity to gain knowledge about enterprise architecture design and development among a plethora of other applications. Expand upon and integrate developed work into existing prototype design. Utilize advanced software development techniques in Java, JavaScript, and various other web techniques to create the interface. An oral presentation and software code review will be conducted near the end of the internship.
