    OBJECTIVE

     

    I am seeking a senior level technical or leadership position in a space related environment.

     

    EXPERIENCE SUMMARY

     

    I have senior level experience in engineering and managing the implementation and operation of complex electrical, communications and computer based systems for space, avionics, defense, and commercial application.

     

    Employment History:

     

    ASRC Management Systems

     

    2012 to Present, Chief Systems Engineer:  I am the senior member of the Flight Operations Team supporting the NASA Deep Space Climate ObserVatoRy (DSCOVR).  I am developing procedures, processes, scripts, pages, tools, etc. in support of PlasMag, the key DSCOVR science instrument.  We are presently involved in Integration and Test, but the scope of these activities will continue through launch and early on-orbit operations.  I support and sometimes lead the various meetings associated with the above activities.

     

    MEI Technologies

     

    2007-2012, Senior Staff Engineer:  I was the lead Electrical Systems Engineer for the NASA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership focusing on power, C&DH, comm., databus and software issues. My initial focus was on challenging instrument I&T issues related to the VIIRS, CrIS and OMPS instruments. Later, I participated in the comprehensive observatory level I&T campaign including EMI/EMC, environmental, and thermal vacuum.  I also provided key inputs into the requirements validation, verification and mission assurance efforts.  I served on the launch team and provided post-launch and early flight operations support and checkout including issue resolution, telemetry and statistical trending, anomaly management and risk assessment.

     

    Assurance Technology Corporation

     

    1995-2005, Principal Systems Engineer:  I provided senior systems engineering support for numerous classified space and military programs managed by the Naval Research Laboratory and the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).  As a member of OSD’s Open Systems Joint Task Force I had visibility into a broad range of DoD technology insertion efforts.  One of the responsibilities in this role was to act as the Task Force’s liaison to the Joint Airborne SIGINT Architecture Standards Working Group.  I was the lead systems engineer for the Army’s Improved Cargo Helicopter architecture study.

     

    Fairchild Space and Defense / Orbital Sciences

     

    1991-1995, Senior Staff Engineer:  I provided systems engineering, requirements allocation, design, fabrication, integration, test, and quality assurance support for several NASA spacecraft and military avionics programs.  I was the lead systems engineer responsible for the development of the high-speed Science Formatting Equipment flown on 2 Earth Observing Spacecraft, Terra and Aqua.  I also played a critical role in the development of high-density, solid-state storage devices utilized in several space programs.

     

    1987-1991, Engineering Manager: I led an engineering organization that implemented Tracking, Telemetry, and Command (TT&C) systems for NASA and military spacecraft.  I managed the implementation of TT&C equipment for NASA’s Ocean Topography Experiment (TOPEX), the Explorer Platform and the Hubble Space Telescope.

     

    COMSAT Corporation

     

    1985-1987, Engineering Manager:  I led an engineering organization that implemented high-speed Time Division Multiple Access satellite communications equipment.  I was also a pioneer in the development of Very Small Aperture Terminal communications equipment that has found wide commercial application.
