Test Manager, Unmanned Systems. Responsible for test development, management, and execution of the US Army's Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (TUAV) system, the Shadow 200. Coordinate, develop, and conduct the in-plant and flight government acceptance test procedures (ATPs); coordination of the manufacturing orders and field-manufacturing orders with these test procedures.
Systems engineer responsible for development of upgrades to block 1A and block 1B Shadow air vehicles, including development and testing of automated Shadow Airborne Landing System (SALS).
Developed the TUAV system specifications for the Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP) systems and Full-Rate Production (FRP) systems. Developed the specifications for TUAV programs with foreign customers, and continue to develop and maintain the system in-plant and flight acceptance test procedures, based on inputs from other engineers, company management, and the US Army’s Program Management Office (PMO).
Flight test engineer for the block 1A air vehicle qualification test program at Fort Huachuca, AZ. Flight test engineer for production block 1A and 1B Shadow 200 TUAV, responsible for running flight acceptance test at Fort Huachuca, AZ. Flight engineer for risk reduction and qualification testing of block 1B air vehicle at Fort Huachuca, AZ.
Senior engineer responsible for all COMSEC related integration to the Shadow 200 air vehicle. Responsible for the integration, qualification and flight-testing of the Raytheon Mode 4 Identify-Friend-Or-Foe (IFF) transponder. Responsible for the COMSEC integration issues for the Trimble Force 22 Selective Availability / Anti-Spoof Module (SAASM) GPS, fielded on the block 1B Shadow 200 TUAV. Responsible for Tactical Common Data Link (TCDL) COMSEC integration. Lead engineer for SAASM GPS HAE approval from GPSW.
Provided all system integration for avionics and simulation for MCAP II program with Rockwell-Collins. Letter of Commendation, 2005.
Senior software engineer and system architect for the AAI Shadow 200 hardware in the loop simulator (HILSIM). This simulator allows AAI to fly the aircraft on the ground, using a proven 6-degree of freedom (6-DOF) simulator and a real-time digital signal processing hardware interface for all avionics input/output. This HILSIM incorporates all components of the complete Shadow 200 TUAV, allowing for complete test of all interfaces and communications links with the actual air vehicle in flight mode. AAI Outstanding Achievement Award Winner, 4th Quarter 2003, for the HILSIM development. I have briefed the HILSIM environment to two US Congressmen, Chairman of the Polish Joint Chief’s of Staff, numerous US flag officers, and every government and industry group to visit AAI unmanned systems since 2003.
Lead engineer, system integrator, test engineer, and air vehicle operator for the Piccolo avionics test flight program. The Piccolo is a small, self-contained computer and sensor system developed by Cloud Cap Technology of Oregon. The Piccolo was installed and integrated to two remote-control aircraft and successfully test flown as part of the CLAW (Close Light Airborne Weapon) development program. Outstanding Achievement Award Winner, CLAW Team, 4th Quarter 2003.
