I want to be involved with the investigation and development of spacecrafts and launch vehicles through trajectory analysis, propulsion technology, aerodynamics of launch and atmospheric reentry, and orbital mechanics. I will utilize the knowledge I have gained from my Aerospace Engineering degree, Astronautical Engineering certificate, and professional experience.
Jan 2012 – Present Guidance, Navigation, and Control Engineer/Aerospace Engineer
Interorbital Systems (IOS), Mojave, CA
· Modified critical launch vehicle parameters (mass properties, aerodynamic coefficients, engine characteristics, etc.) and analyzed trajectories for 3DOF/6DOF simulation results.
· Performed critical trajectory optimization for IOS Neptune family of launch vehicles to meet mission requirements.
· Presented performance capabilities of launch vehicles for NASA’s Small Business Investment Reward (SBIR) and NASA’s Enabling eXploration and Technology (NEXT) contract.
· Conducted surveys, cases, and Monte-Carlo trajectory simulations to generate data required by the FAA and Air Force.
· Practiced and accustomed with orbital mechanics in solving Keplerian orbit elements for current and potential customers.
· Active in creating flight profiles for orbital and suborbital trajectories, as well as the development of a lunar mission as part of Team Synergy Moon for the Google Lunar X-Prize competition.
· Assessed performance characteristics of rocket propulsion systems for space launch vehicles including liquid-propellant rocket engines and solid-propellant rocket motors.
Composites Technician/Rocket Technician
· Managed the mixing of solid rocket fuel (aluminum, ammonium perchlorate) and handled storable propellants (turpentine, furfuryl alcohol, nitric acid).
· Experienced with the cutting and shaping of patterns for basic layouts of parts, vacuum bag processing, and oven/autoclave curing.
· Manufactured component parts for ablative-cooled rocket engine design (phenolic, fiberglass, carbon fiber) including main combustion chambers and nozzles.
· Performed carbon fiber layups on aluminum-lined fuel tanks and carried out the pressure testing of those tanks to achieve a safety factor of 1.5.
· Carried out a series of field tests for component and equipment verification, including the experimentation of liquid propulsion systems and solid rocket motors.
