Brookhaven National Laboratory, Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (1991-99)
Advanced Computer Analyst. - Software architecture, design, implementation of distributed accelerator control system (VxWorks, Unix RPC, C++). Also implemented embedded firmware (C, i960 assembler) for real-time control of magnet power supplies, instrumentation, other equipment. Responsible for systems integration of over 100 networked Front-End Computers (VME-bus MC68040 and 603e) and web-based testing (HTML, Java, and CGI Perlscripts). Also responsible for Software Quality Assurance programs; wrote and implemented departmental SQA standards.
Grumman Aerospace, Integrated Logistic Support Department: (1986-91)
Principal Engineer / Software Deputy to Director of Computer Engineering -
Responsible for implementing new technology & standards for ATE (Automated Test Equipment), assessing impacts on Grumman business. Also led advanced software group developing CASE tools: ATLAS generators, CASS translators, neural nets for test coverage, expert systems for Built-In-Test. (C/C++, Pascal, Lisp). Performed comprehensive study of Ada insertion into ATE. Devised and implemented requirements-based software cost estimation for ILS Dept. programming environment. Introduced diagnostic flowcharting software to meet U.S.Navy TPS requirements ($2M cost-savings).
Also completed special assignments for Corporate Technology office, including:
 · Technical Advisory Group (Software Audits) for Grumman Melbourne Division (JSTARS).
 · Corporate Steering Groups for Software Engineering; Software QA; Configuration Management.
 · Represented Grumman at the Software Productivity Consortium (Herndon, VA).
 · Co-author, Conceptual Design of Control System for X-Ray Lithography Synchrotron (DARPA).
 · Authored the Space Division's System Engineering Standard (Requirements-Driven Design Methodology).
