Summary

Mechanical engineer with 20+ years of experience in space operations.  Extensive experience in simulation and computer modeling for both training and engineering purposes.  Demonstrated systems engineering skills in CMMI Level 3 environment; routinely formulated requirements and managed large, complex software projects resulting in on-time, error-free products.

Clearance

Top Secret Clearance held at United Space Alliance / SSBI completed May 2008

Key Skills

Matlab/Simulink, C, UML, Rational Rose, Kennedy Carter iUML, Red Hat Linux, FreeFlyer, Satellite Tool Kit

Education

B.S. Mechanical Engineering, University of Oklahoma

Currently pursuing M.S. Systems Engineering, University of Houston-Clear Lake

Experience

2011                          Bastion Technologies                     Greenbelt, MD

Senior systems engineer for the joint NOAA/NASA/DoD NPOESS Preparatory Project.  Responsible for developing test plans and procedures to insure program requirements are being met.  Act as test director during system verification test making sure evidence is collected to close out requirement verifications.  Main focus is on the ground command, communication and control subsystem used for operating the NPOESS satellite.

 

 

1997 - 2011              United Space Alliance                    Houston, TX

 

Independent Research and Development Department

  • Lead engineer for spacecraft modeling, simulation, and resource prediction.
  • Developed suite of tools used for spacecraft mission operations planning, stowage and CG tracking, and trajectory analysis.
  • Provide consulting services to Orbital Science Corporation for their Cygnus spacecraft.  Performed an assessment of their flight design system for far field rendezvous and spacecraft disposal.  Provided assistance on development of debris catalog and algorithms for computing debris footprints to satisfy range safety requirements.
  • Assembled spacecraft attitude, communication, lighting, and solar-array power generation models for the Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) and International Space Station (ISS).   CEV models were a central part of mission feasibility studies for Lockheed Martin.
  • Created simulation to generate predicted ground station communication coverage for a satellite constellation.  Incorporated into proposal to USAF 22ndSpace Operations Squadron.
  • Developed lunar base simulation to predict communication coverage between a lunar base at the moon’s south pole and the Deep Space Network on Earth.  Additionally, determined effectiveness of relay satellites in lunar orbit to maximize communication coverage.
  • Originated requirements and built prototype for trajectory analysis tool that included processors for launch window determination, orbit determination, rendezvous targeting, re-entry targeting and debris footprint. 
  • Designed real-time 3D model visualizations to work with the stowage and CG tool. 

 

 

 

Constellation Support

  • Developed software requirements for the downlink telemetry and radio models for the Crew Exploration Vehicle Avionics Integration Lab using Universal Modeling Language (UML) and the Kennedy-Carter iUML tool.
  • Built the downlink telemetry, radio and parachute models in Matlab/Simulink based on the UML requirements.  Performed all development and unit testing within Matlab before generating C code versions of the models to be integrated into the main simulation.

 

 

Payload Operations Support Team

  • Project Manager for Shuttle Mission Simulator Modeling Tool – Developed tool set to allow shuttle payload customers to build their own training models.  Project combined the commercial tool MatrixX/SystemBuild with custom software that allowed the MatrixX models to run in the Space Shuttle training simulator. 

 

1997                          Booz Allen & Hamilton                   Houston, TX

 

  • Provided support to Raytheon on development of computer models for the ISS communication and tracking system in the Space Station Training Facility.

 

1994 - 1997              Unisys Corporation                         Houston, TX

  • Payload model developer for the Space Shuttle training facility.  Major models developed include the reel motor controller for the Tethered Satellite and the Inertial Upper Stage booster for the Chandra Telescope.

 

1990 - 1994              Lockheed Corporation                    Houston, TX

  • Developed simulation to investigate separation clearance issues between the shuttle and the external tank for return-to-launch-site abort cases.  Simulation was later modified to study separation clearances issues between the shuttle and the solid rocket boosters.

 

1985 - 1990              Rockwell Space Operation            Houston, TX

  • Performed range safety analysis to determine debris footprint for external tank disposal.
  • Supported Flight Activity Officer in Mission Control Centerduring shuttle flights.
