    Personal contribution to the team and the projects:

    Development, Design, Manufacturing, Ground Support Equipment & Test Set-up of all the structural and thermal parts of Radars .• Problems solved on the Radar Synthesizer, because the oscillators gave rise to an out of spec phase noise. The local oscillators had been mounted on an anti-vibrating frame linked with elastic rubber spring to the chassis of the Synthesizer. The elastic suspension was a tuned as a seismograph with the adequate mechanical natural frequencies to avoid any interference with the carrying frequencies of the synthesizer. • Solved mechanical interference between Radar antenna and Radome due to Gun Fire environment. • Gun Fire test arranged and carried out successfully. The global content of energy was 24 g’s  RMS. Engineering and Qualification test passed.

    • Structural validation by analysis and testing of the MDM’s antenna. MDM rejected any responsibility about the mechanical survival of the antenna when submitted to the Gun Fire Pulse Test. I took the responsibility of the structural capability, of its dimensioning, and calculations. Test confirmed the adequacy of the Antenna to the thermal and vibration environment

    • Procurement  Specification, Design Reviews e Acceptance of F-5 E/F Radome, at Brunswick Composites(USA) and Supervisor of the relevant test at Wyle Laboratories (USA)

    Security Clearance

    From 1989 to 1997 I had the Security Clearance that in Italy is Called NOS( Nulla Osta alla Segretezza)• When I passed to the Space Division of FIAR, NOS was not needed anymore because the space projects were not military projects• Before the military service in 1986, I passed the selection to be employed in the Police Department of Milan. At that time instead of the traditional army service it was possible to ask to be selected for the Police Department and to work there for one year. The Police Department took too much time to accomplish the selection and to call me, so I had to do the military service in the army. After its conclusion the Police Department of Milan, when the selection was concluded, called me but I had almost finished university, so I decided to reject the employment in the Police of Milan.

    Cover Letter

    To whom it may concern

    I was born in mechanical environment; my father was the owner of a small company. At 12 years old, I repaired the Norton gearbox of the lathe. During the high school and university periods. I worked, part time, at a multi brand work shop on normal and racing car as technician. I was proficient in playing soccer in high level teams till 1979.

    I have a manual ability in mechanical and electronic equipment usage. I have a good written and spoken English capability and proficiency with personal computers and software. I have a very good problem solving capabilities and ability to work in group, open minded, pro-active, flexible and familiar with complex multinational contexts.

    The knowledge of different processes applicable to a variety of materials: steel alloys, Irons, rubbers, plastics, aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, advanced ceramics, structural adhesives, composites do allow me to purchase, design and manufacture various products for various applications.

    I can direct, coordinate and exercise functional authority for investments, design, purchase, manufacturing, maintenance, planning, budget control, operating plans, organization, control, quality policy integration, sales issues within area of assigned responsibility by performing the duties personally or through subordinates.

    I always have had contacts with customers, suppliers, technical groups, universities in order to develop cutting edge products and keeps abreast of latest technical developments. I’m capable of leading  contractual meetings, design reviews, board meetings, non- conformances meetings. Many time I have been charged of strategic decisions.
