    Work experience

    Feb – Aug 2011            DLR                                      Bremen, Germany

    Masters Degree Thesis Student – Greenhouse Initiative Project

    My role with the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) involved the concept, mechanical and system design for the DLR Bremen Greenhouse Initiative Project. The aim of the Greenhouse Initiative is to create a detailed concept for a future manned space mission that would heavily reduce the reliance on resupply from the Earth, whilst providing additional benefits such as oxygen replenishment. The work that I undertook for this project involved the conceptual and Phase A mechanical design of the systems and overall habitat design and relied on CATIA V5 modelling and various other tools to create and compare a variety of designs in order to create a baseline solution for the project.

    Aug 2009 – Sep 2010    ALTRAN Technologies       Bremen, Germany

    Aerospace Design Engineer

    My role with ALTRAN Technologies revolved around the writing, editing and maintenance of the Airbus System Installation Design Principles (SIDP) documents for a number of key mechanical systems for the forthcoming A350XWB passenger aircraft. The SIDP documents are Airbus documents provided to a system designer that detail the best design practices, solutions and techniques to ensure a functioning system that is highly optimised for both installation and maintenance. The SIDP effectively sets out and relays the primary design requirements that the system designers are to follow in order to create a harmonised design for the entire aircraft.

    The majority of this project involved liaising with system designers, responsibles, manufacturers, installers and other interested parties to determine best design practices, the investigation of past design practices, the development of new requirements and solutions, and the monitoring of the system designs and routings to ensure that the agreed best practices were being correctly implemented. The system installations which were my area of responsibility were the Bleed Air system, the Hydraulic system and the Thermal and Acoustic Insulation installation. I also had a secondary role on the Supplemental Cooling system, Fire Protection system for pressurised zones, the Oxygen system, and the Water/Waste system.

    Sep 2007 – Aug 2008    Rosebank Engineering   Melbourne, Australia

    Aerospace Design Engineer/Project Manager

    Rosebank Engineering is an Australian company specialising in the manufacture, repair and overhaul of Hydraulic, Pneumatic and Mechanical Systems for the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) fleet of aircraft and helicopters. The focus of Rosebank Engineering is primarily on undercarriage components, but also includes a wide range of other systems across almost the entire ADF air fleet.

    The majority of the work that I performed at Rosebank Engineering involved repair and overhaul tasks. Primarily, determining the repairability and the subsequent repair limits of components rendered unserviceable by the Australian Airforce Publications and Repair Manuals. Additionally, I designed and initiated new repair procedures and/or repair techniques, designed replacement parts where current parts were found to be obsolete or unavailable, and tested replacement materials or procedures for new repair processes. I was involved in the design of new test fixtures and tools for use in the repair or manufacture of various components. Lastly, I provided temporary repair procedures, and where possible, engineering dispensations for aircraft to continue flying, in response to RAAF Non-Conformance Repair & Dispensation requests from RAAF ground crews. Some of the projects I worked on included McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet and De Havilland C-7 Caribou undercarriage components, Sikorsky Sea King Helicopters, and Ground Support Equipment.

    At the end of March 2008 I was promoted within Rosebank Engineering to the position of project manager for a new contract manufacturing a variety of Goodrich Actuating System designed landing gear actuators for the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Carrier Variant. This role required me to act as the point of contact for this project both internally within Rosebank and externally with Goodrich. I was responsible for project scheduling, creation of datapacks from customer supplied data, sourcing of material and process suppliers, instigation of new processing lines at Rosebank and involvement in assisting auditors from Goodrich Sydney, Goodrich USA & Lockheed Martin to approve Rosebank Engineering’s manufacturing and processing capabilities. During this time I continued to work on specific overhaul projects, primarily focusing on F/A-18 components, continuing the work I previously carried out as an Aerospace Design Engineer, although in a reduced capacity.

    Jan – Jul 2007              GKN Aerospace Engineering Services

    Melbourne, Australia

    Aerospace Engineer (Integration Engineer/EngineeringLiaison)

    In January 2007 I took a position with the Australian office of GKN in order to take up a position as the on-site engineering liaison for GKN at Infotech in Hyderabad, India. Infotech is a company subcontracted by GKNAES to produce design, drafting and stress engineering for a number of GKN projects including the Airbus Militaire A400M Military Transport Aircraft Trailing Edge (TED) Package and Airbus A380-800F Freighter Fixed Trailing Edge (FTE) Package.

    The position involved primarily assisting in the drafting of B/C-Scheme and DFM Drawings of the TED and FTE panels. My position as engineering liaison involved being a focal point of contact between GKN and Infotech and to help address any issues that arose between the two companies.

    In April 2007, I was transferred to the offices of CTRM-Excelnet in Cyberjaya, Malaysia. My role at CTRM was as an integration engineer on the Airbus Militaire A400M Military Transport Aircraft Trailing Edge Package. It was my job to act as a focal point in the processing of concessions produced by CTRM on the composite panels being produced for GKN Aerospace UK.

    This role involved collating the finalized concessions, performing necessary edits or sending back sections of the concessions to those responsible in order for them to be reworked as required. Additionally, I acted as a focal point for contact between GKN and the engineering divisions of CTRM on any design, development or testing related issues.

    Aug 2005 – Dec 2006    GKN Aerospace Engineering Services

    Isle of Wight, UK

    Aerospace Engineer (Design Engineer/Project Testing Co-ordinator)

    I fulfilled a number of roles during my time at GKN on the Isle of Wight including positions in project, testing, design, and stress engineering.

    Initially I worked as a stress engineer on the Engine Air Intake Duct for the Airbus Militaire A400M Military Transport Aircraft project focusing on the development of tests plans for the stress-related testing to be completed.

    In September 2005 I transferred into the design side of the project. I used CATIA V5 to design components of the intake, primarily focusing on the design of the Nacelle Anti-icing Ducting for the intake. For three months, I worked as GKN’s engineering liaison at CASA in Getafe, Spain.

    As Project Testing Co-ordinator from January 2006, I worked with design, stress, systems, aerothermal, manufacturing and test engineers to identify testing procedures, requirements and desired information output. I designed test pieces, created test plans, scheduled testing, liaised with the test piece manufacturers and co-ordinated with test houses to ensure the testing programme ran as smoothly as possible.

    In June 2006, I was stationed at IAI in Tel Aviv, Israel to work on the Gulfstream/IAI P30 Project. I co-ordinated the integration of a GKN/Honeywell Engine-Nacelle Package on to the P30 aircraft being designed by Gulfstream/IAI. As a design engineer, I worked on the routing and design of interfaces for various nacelle systems (including Hydraulic, Fuel & Bleed Air systems), and was the on-site point of contact for IAI on nacelle integration issues. I returned to the UK following the outbreak of hostilities between Israel and Hezbollah, but continued to progress the P30 Project until the end of 2006.
