LOCKHEED MARTIN, Sunnyvale, California Jun 2007 – Present
Senior Systems Engineer
• Works on submarine-launched Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) program for the U.S. Navy.
• Played key role on Failure Investigation Team (FIT). Created charts on investigation status and fault tree closure for daily briefings to the customer. Tracked action items to completion.
• Analyzed foreign object debris (FOD) found inside a launch tube to determine materials and likely origin. Worked closely with contractor responsible for launch tube construction. Analysis led to exoneration of FOD as contributor to failure.
• Evaluated telemetry data collection requirements to determine which assets would be needed to meet those requirements.
• Provided test support plans to U.S. Navy, other FBM contractors, and missile flight test range. Described the planned flight, including launch and impact areas, trajectories, experiments, safety considerations, assets, and expected data collection.
• Presented special requirements for upcoming test flights to the U.S. Navy customer and flight test community, including details about experiments with unique telemetry systems, new trajectories, and tests of new equipment.
• Supported test launches at the mission control center to resolve last-minute issues and address anomalies.
OFFICE OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE, Washington, D.C. May 2006 – Feb 2007
• Analyzed and characterized naval surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems.
• Designed, created, and implemented missile visibility models in MATLAB.
• Analyzed missile engagement scenarios and potential countermeasures.
AIRLINES FOR AMERICA, Washington, D.C. Aug 2004 – Sep 2005
• Evaluated the scope and effects of airworthiness directives to determine how they would impact U.S. airlines.
• Coordinated speakers, panels, and presentations for the 2005 Maintenance Forum, which covered aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul issues affecting U.S. airlines and air freight carriers.
• Researched and wrote a report on Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) failure and false activation rates.
NAVAL SURFACE WARFARE CENTER, West Bethesda, Maryland May 2004 – Aug 2004
• Developed and analyzed advanced unmanned vehicle and seaplane concepts.
• Modeled aircraft missions and capabilities.
• Wrote and presented briefings for the Office of Naval Research.
