    ·         Helped complete the FDS (coding/testing) and developed additional capabilities.  The tool supports COTS/CRS mission design from cradle to grave including launch window targeting, rendezvous, Orbit Determination, Near-Field Monitoring during autonomous phase, contingency operations, and deorbit/reentry.  For all phases of flight, products and some ground telemetry was delivered to internal/external customers.

    ·         Worked with a small team to design and execute the Orbital COTS Demonstration Mission.  This included intensive collaboration with NASA counterparts to close out Flight Rules and demonstration products.  The mission also exercised contingency operations on orbit which resulted in an award for our team.

    ·         Designed and flew the Orb-1 and Orb-2 missions from cradle to grave including effort to coordinate a viewable reentry with the ISS.  Designed and supported the Orb-3 mission.

    ·         Supported Geostationary missions New Dawn, Intelsat 18, Intelsat 23, Amazonas-4a and DirecTV SKYM1. Tasks included performing Orbit Determinations, performing and calibrating burns.

    ·         Produced numerous code projects to streamline processes including an automated Orbit Determination capability for GEOs, upgraded Sequence of Events (with STK Scheduler) for GEO missions and numerous scripts to minimize manual labor

    ·         Spearheaded efforts to ‘modernize’ company through AGI products (STK) by organizing monthly lunch and learns as well as large training events through coordination with AGI.
