    Experience:

     

    6/2009 – Present:  Lead instrumentation and controls engineer for the F-35 Full-Scale Durability Test Common Test Team– As the lead engineer, I am responsible for the technical leadership of a team of instrumentation and control engineers supporting all full-scale durability test articles.  This team consists of local LM Aero engineers and engineers at our partner’s facility in the UK.  I establish process and test standards.  I also serve as the interface between senior management and the test team.

     

    7/2010 – 10/2010:  Special Assignment (BAES UK)– Because of my control systems expertise, I was assigned the task of improving the test execution rate of the F-35 full-scale durability test at our partner’s site in the UK.  This very delicate situation required tact and diplomacy to ensure that it was a team effort for all parties.  Through teleconferences and two multi-week site visits, I improved the test performance to a level that greatly exceeded the program manager’s expectations.  I was given a substantial Special Recognition Award with a significant monetary value because of this success and my demonstration of the Full Spectrum Leadership Imperatives. 

     

    10/2001 - 6/2009: Project Manager and Lead engineer for the F-35 Vehicle Systems Integration Facility (VSIF)- The VSIF is a hardware-in-the-loop, pilot-in-the-loop vehicle systems integration and test laboratory.  I led a team that designed and built a laboratory to integrate and test the aircraft power system, the flight control actuation system, and the utility hydraulic system.  I worked closely with Facilities Engineering, developed the facility requirements, and followed the progress of the construction of the facility.

     

    The VSIF is a highly dynamic environment that requires the ability to respond to the rapidly changing needs of the program as well as to support production and flight test.  The overall project cost was approximately $80M US.  In this role, I provided the technical and programmatic leadership for a multi-disciplined team of approximately 20 design and lab support engineers.  This was a diverse team that consisted of mechanical and electrical engineers as well as a number of electronics and mechanical technicians (a mix of represented and management support). 

     

    I managed all aspects of the project: schedule, budget, task assignments, and technical leadership.  I coordinated with internal customer IPTs to develop requirements and to establish verification plans.  I was known throughout the F-35 Vehicle Systems IPT as the “go to” guy to get things done.  I worked very hard to establish good relationships with all of my customer IPT organizations.  I also established good working relationships with our government customers and met with them often to discuss issues regarding the integration and test facility.

     

    I selected and managed numerous domestic and foreign subcontractors with a total material budget of approximately $25M.  These contracts were for computer systems and software, data acquisition systems, digital switching systems, optical network switching, high speed rotating machinery (variable speed drives to simulate gas turbine PTO shafts), mechanical test fixtures, hydraulic plumbing, and a wide assortment of other hardware and systems.  I authored a Technical Assistance Agreement (TAA) to support the exchange of data between LM and an overseas subcontractor.  I executed a number of DSP-5 international exports to foreign contractors.  I traveled extensively (domestic and international) to evaluate potential suppliers, conduct technical reviews, witness testing, and to ensure that our subcontractors were performing to plan. 

     

    In addition to providing the leadership to the team, I was responsible for the design and development of the real-time software for two digital control systems.  One control system was used to apply dynamic air loads to the F-35 primary flight controls.  The second control system operated in position control with force limits to simulate and load to the aircraft doors and door locks.  Both of these systems had an update rate of 1000 updates/second and were driven by hardware clock interrupts.

     

    1/2001 – 10/2001:  Lead engineer for the F-22 Vehicle System Simulator– The F-22 Vehicle Systems Simulator (VSS) is a hardware-in-the-loop and pilot-in-the-loop systems integration facility.  I provided leadership to the VSS operations team.  I also designed and developed a highly dynamic digital servo-hydraulic load control system.  I served as the interface between the engineering team and the program.  I generated cost estimates and BOE’s to support engineering change proposals.  I was responsible for the project’s schedule and budget.

     

    1/1999 - 1/2001: Lead software engineer for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F-111 Cold Proof Test Facility - I was the lead developer for real-time control and data acquisition software and served as the software product manager (SPM).  This was a fixed price commercial contract to provide a full airframe, cold soaked, structural proofing chamber for the Australian Air Force.  This project required the system to chill and F-111 airframe to -40 degrees C and then apply forces to the airframe whilst acquiring data from the instrumentation.  I led the design/development effort and produced all of the process documentation relating to the software project. 

     

    1987 - 1999: Structural Test Engineer/Software Engineer- I developed and maintained real-time servo-hydraulic and pressure test control software and provided structural test support.

     

    6/84-6/87 Manager, Computer Services Department - Carter & Burgess, Inc.

     

    I managed a small team of engineers and technicians in support of the company’s Intergraph DEC VAX/VMS based computer aided design system.  I was also responsible for the development of software tools and applications.

     

    Personal:

     

    I enjoy cooking, fine dining, travel, films, music, and photography.

     

    Education:

     

    1983, BS Engineering, Texas A&M University.
