RMKS/1.  This is a call for the Computer Network Operations Development 
Program (CNODP), class of 2019.  The CNODP is comprised of both the System 
and Network Interdisciplinary Program (SNIP) and the Global Network 
Exploitation and Vulnerability Analyst (GNEVA) Development Program (GDP).  
This is an opportunity for a select group of highly technically inclined 
individuals to further develop their skills in the areas of secure system 
design, vulnerability analysis, Computer Network Defense (CND), and Computer 
Network Exploitation (CNE).  The goal of the program is to develop a cadre of 
technical leaders who will improve Department of Defense (DoD) and service 
Computer Network Operations
(CNO) capabilities.  The program is a technically demanding, three-year tour, 
individually tailored to each applicant to best capitalize on his/her 
expertise.  The SNIP and GDP executives expect the next class to start in 
July 2016, with a report not later than
(NLT) date of 18 April 2016 to allow sufficient time for in-processing, 
orientation, and security clearance processing.

2.  Ideal CNODP candidates should have the following desired
qualifications:
    a.  Bachelor's degree plus advanced courses or equivalent experience in 
the areas of computer engineering, computer science, electronic and 
electrical engineering, or applied mathematics.
    b.  Exceptional academic performance and professional accomplishments, as 
well as a demonstrated interest in and ability to perform technically 
oriented, hands-on oriented work.
    c.  Well-developed oral and written communications skills.
    d.  Working knowledge in one or more telecommunications or computer 
network disciplines (computer hardware, software, or networks).
    e. Well-qualified enlisted, warrant, and commissioned officers will be 
given equal consideration. For service cryptologic element
(SCE) civilians, the desired grade is GG/GS7-12. Previous assignments should 
include experience in telecommunications operations, CNO, SIGINT collection 
operations, information security (INFOSEC)/ information assurance (IA), 
and/or research and development (R&D).
    f.  Demonstrated programming skills in C or C++.
    g.  Selected applicants must possess a TS/SCI security clearance and 
current, counter-intelligence (CI) polygraph before the class start date of 
11 July 2016.

3.  Please ensure widest dissemination to include, cryptologic, intelligence, 
communications and computer science, scientific, engineering, acquisition, 
and operations fields.  Please note, there may be an active duty service 
commitment upon graduation.

4.  Each service is limited to a maximum of 15 applicants to allow for 
participants from other DoD agencies, while maintaining a small class size.

5.  Selection will be based on a thorough review of each application package 
and an interview of the top applicants by the NSA selection board.  The 
application package should consist of the

        (2) Enlisted:  Transcripts, complete PSR, and any evaluations 
detailing technical competency.
        (3) Civilians:  Transcripts and any performance assessments reporting 
on technical competency.
    b.  Letter of recommendation from the applicant's Commanding Officer.
    c.  Letter of recommendation from the applicant's supervisor attesting to 
his/her technical skills and abilities.
    d.  An optional letter of recommendation at the applicant's discretion.
    e.  A letter from the applicant (two pages or less) answering the

List each programming language and your familiarity with it, how.
long you coded in it, and the year you last coded in it.  Only include 
languages for which you have actually written (or modified) code.  Include 
any assembly, high-level and scripting languages.
        (3) Other than programming language expertise listed above, how does 
your experience and training relate to the core fields (hardware, software, 
and networks)?
        (4) Teaming:  Describe a teaming experience that you have had where 
you were a member and a teaming experience where you were a leader.  Describe 
your role on the team and how you contributed.
You may include experiences from work or from school.  In your answer,

experiences that did not go perfectly, please describe what problems were 
encountered and what measures were taken (e.g., a team member not 
understanding their part or not pulling their weight, conflict within the 
team, etc.).  Describe what role you had in any measures that may have been 
taken.
       (5) Give one example of a project where you worked by yourself;

7.  Commands are strongly urged to consider nominating their best qualified

to give future technical Computer Network Operations leaders the skills to 
help lead the Navy in this vital area.
