I have been flexible in my ability to perform any task necessary in both engineering and management for DoD, NASA, and contractor organizations. I have had challenging opportunities which I enjoyed tackling and look forward to new opportunities.
OPERATIONS & TRAINING
Payload Operations Director for three highly successful (100% success) Spacelab Life Sciences mission
Created training organization for Operations Team, Principal Investigators (scientists), and Space Shuttle crew
Successfully regained power thereby saving the experiment in the rack
Four out of four 100% successful missions by payload operations support team
Contract received highest award fees from NASA ever received by that company
Unit Manager of training organization – newly formed organization which I developed to design, construct, and operation a simulation facility; prepared and presented training materials and developed a certification program for payload operations support team personnel
Project Manager for a engineering study contract to develop US Army Corp Commander requirements for overhead assets
Project Management Software include Open Plan and Microsoft Project
Successfully trained over 70 professionals (engineers, scientists)
The statement of operational need while developed for one specific carrier has since been implemented on numerous overhead assets
As a Project Engineer I lead a team to resolve hardware anomalies/challenges including stress corrosion failure of springs, pyrotechnic limited life extension program, thermal insulation material changes, etc.
I wrote a large number of requests for engineering and task change proposals to support spacecraft specific requirements and negotiated contracts totaling approximately $25 million.
Participated in sixteen successful Titan IIIC launches of communications and sensor satellites
Based on Space Shuttle navigation hardware design I developed nominal (including flight crew checklists) and malfunction procedures
Integration Project Engineer for a new upper stage development program; responsible to integrate activities for loads analysis, thermal analysis, contamination control, electromagnetic interference/compatibility with the engineering design disciplines (mechanical, structures, propulsion, electrical power, data processing, communications and tracking, etc.)
Test and Evaluation Manager for the Quick Fix IIB Blackhawk Helicopter program. This included ground integrated testing of the Electronics Countermeasure System as well as flight testing of the system in the Blackhawk Helicopter.
Systems Engineering and Integration: Develop Interface Control Specifications, Interface Control Drawings (ICDs), Space Shuttle Payload Integration Plans and their associated annexes, and System Specifications for manned and unmanned systems including the International Space Station (ISS). I have also developed specifications and requirements trace matrices for the ISS. In addition, I have participated in development of ICDs, and verification documentation. I have also developed and implemented a Risk Management Process as well as the Metrics Management Process.
Awarded Air Force Commendation Medal
Selected for augmentation into Regular Air Force component

STRATEGIC PLANNING & BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
I provided technical and management inputs for several multi-million dollar proposals
SAFETY AND MISSION ASSURANCE (S&MA)
I participated in development of new Space Shuttle Integrated System Safety Hazard Reports and Fault Trees
I was also a participant in development of a new program Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) for electrical power, mechanisms, pyrotechnics, environment control and life support, propulsion, communications and tracking, displays and controls, and data processing systems for reliability analysis
Success return to flight following Space Shuttle Columbia tragedy
