    -—PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE—

     

    UTC Aerospace Systems at NASA-JSC (Electronics Engineer)                              Feb 2005 – Feb 2013

    ·         Designed various electronics, electrical, mechanical and optical systems.

    ·         Fabricated circuit boards, cable harness, fiber optics cables and connections, power supplies.

    ·         Fabricated switch panels, handcontrollers, head mounted displays, man-machine sensors.

    ·         Integrated control panels, control consoles, electronics racks, interface systems.

    ·         Utilized entrepreneurial efforts to find new business. Coordinated with customers to develop requirements, plan budgets and schedules, training, plans for support and maintenance.

    ·         Troubleshot electrical, electronics, mechanical and optical systems. Used oscilloscopes, meters, spectrum analyzers, power supplies, signal generators and communication & network analyzers.

    ·         Integrated complete voice & wireless intercommunications and video systems.

    ·         Developed safety and quality standards as well as monitoring and controlling safety procedures.

    ·         Created user manuals, maintenance and repair manuals, 3D diagrams such as breakdown exploded diagrams. Generated test procedures and software.

    ·         Operated astronaut crew training simulators and simulated on-orbit conditions for crew training.

    ·         Managed lab operations and personnel. Created and managed budgets, training, and safety.

     

    Accomplishments:

    ·         Provided a solution to using expensive, complex dedicated spacecraft simulators. I designed and built desktop training tools that connect directly to personal computers that enable astronauts to train in either an office environment or even at home. We have not measured the savings but it must be rather high and the convenience no doubt is of great value. I can give astronaut references on the value of these tools. Benefits other than cost savings included lower maintenance, floor space savings as well as ease of use for crew.

    ·         Reused hundreds of thousands of dollars of excessed hardware from other labs that would have eventually gone to public auction via that General Services Administration. Some of the hardware includes electronics components, test equipment, IT hardware such as computers, printers, monitors, cable, spacecraft handcontrollers, avionics hardware, CCTV hardware such as cameras, monitors, recorders. Much of this equipment I rebuilt during downtime.

    ·         Coordinated a team to setup and manage a General Purpose Electronics Design and Fabrication Laboratory of which functions incorporated 1) general purpose support for any electronics needs within our division as well as other NASA Centers, 2) development of expertise in many varying technologies - audio, video, IT, avionics, robotics, etc. and be available on a moment’s notice as ‘Tiger Teams’ to provide support within Johnson Space Center, 3) maintenance of a vast stock of supplies for the division and the Space Center including connectors, cable, integrated circuits, discrete components, enclosures, test equipment, panel hardware, 4) train coop students and new hires as well as high school  and college students under grant programs, 5) be available to perform ‘hotshot’ troubleshooting and repairs within the Space Center and 6) develop safety procedures for the division on the use of electrical and electronics systems. We were part of a network of Labs that included a mechanical design facility with machining capability. Our facility was once referred to by NASA HQ as ‘Skunk Works’. We also established a large base of outsource resources within the US such as MFG-Quote for machining, board  fabrication, optics fabrication, and supply acquisition in order to speed up delivery and keep costs to a minimum.
