    • Prioritizing and delegating time spent by the Aqua/Aura FSW Maintenance (AFM) team based on mission health and safety, customer request and estimated time to complete.
    • Management of multiple ongoing FSW engineering projects to improve real-time operations.
    • Integration and test of all FSW upgrades regardless of subsystem pertaining to on-orbit changes and/or simulator upgrades.
    • Scripting and coding procedures for use in spacecraft commanding and simulator setup.
    • Reduction of technically complex information into easily read and interpreted presentations using diagrams, concise text and verbal descriptions.
    • Maintaining an in depth knowledge of the FSW algorithms, control laws and sensor machine code in use by the GN&C, electrical power, Instrument and bus controller flight computers.    
    • Review, supervision of, and interaction with Instrument Operations Teams to ascertain the correctness and accuracy of command sequences in use for instrument health and safety during special activities as it relates to the space vehicle as a whole.
    • Routinely maintain, operate and manage the use of a simulator consisting of spacecraftcomputer hardware and the computers that simulate the space environment for the FSW.
    • Presence and preparation required during all maneuvers and special activities including: DMUMs, IAMs, lunar induced solar eclipses, solar array resets, hardware fail-overs, sub-system anomalies, and all FSW related commanding.  
    • Provide 24/7 on-call support for anomalies occurring on-orbit and regarding the simulators.

     

    Specific projects:

    • Lead the development and test of new fault management FSW for the AMSR-E instrument to mitigate JAXA/NASA concerns regarding Aqua's AMSR-E yaw tumbling scenario.  
    • IV&V of a FSW patch to mitigate state transitions from a fogged earth sensing assembly.
    • IV&V of FSW patches, algorithms and procedures pertaining to Aqua's power subsystems including: charge control laws, fault management, solutions to anticipated anomalies and the re-assessment of the correctness of existing on-orbit flows/procedures.
    • Collaboration with Aqua/Aura C&DH engineers for simulation of on-orbit computer swaps involving each vehicle subsystem and failures involving computer/science data quality.
