Authorized to work in the US for any employer, Reference are available. 41 years’ experience(FAA, General Electric, NASA)

Information Systems Management with Spacebased Communications, Tracking Data Relay Satellites and Deep Space Network satellites using KU and X band. These Spacebased networks are shared with the Department of Defense(DOD) I have created networks for intercenter WAN network using TCP-IP over Wired and Optical paths. Local area networks for Science Spacebased Payloads at all NASA Centers. My computer use started with Digital Equipment Corporations Vax 11-780 running UNIX in the early 1980s attached to the Darpanet or TCP-IP development. The internet did not yet exist. Object Oriented Program methods using C++ and the yet to be developed SYSML structures. This experience is unique to NASA however the Universities involved were University of California berkeley and Carnegie mellon. The DOMAIN used and managed by Stanford Research Institute(SRI) where .GOV and .MIL and .EDU, .COM did not yet exist. This work brought me experience in Neural Networks and Vestibular biophysics and was a laboratory Manager for over a decade using experiments and analysis to conduct scientific research, both ground and spaceflight experiments. NASA Planetary Missions, Science Mission Directorite. I have been a member of the Mars Science Laboratory, NASA landed Curiosity, a Mars rover, in Gale Crater on August 6, 2012. A team Member of the MARS Phoenix lander landed on Mars on May 25, 2008.

I have worked the DOD Systems engineering model with extensive DOD experience at NASA sites shared with the DOD. DoDAF has been designed to meet the specific business and operational needs of the DoD. It defines a way of representing an enterprise architecture that enables stakeholders to focus on specific areas of interests in the enterprise, while retaining sight of the big picture. To assist decision-makers, DoDAF provides the means of abstracting essential information from the underlying complexity and presenting it in a way that maintains coherence and consistency.

NASA Contractor/Government

Contracts & Grants:

I was responsible for contracts, subcontracts and procurement efforts in support of a major program and projects. This activity occurred throughout the contract life cycle, including Grants proposal negotiations; draft and prepare RFPs, RFIs and other bid documents for subcontractors. Managed add-on task orders under existing awards; and reviewed all terms and conditions to minimize risks. Bachelor’s of Science degree

Provide Leadership in Information technology for Space Shuttle Payloads using the Spacelab.

Provide Information Computer systems to support science data capture in operational flight programs.

Work performed at all NASA installations national and international Spacelab components flew on a total of about 32 Shuttle missions, depending on how such hardware and mission are tabulated. Spacelab allowed scientists to perform experiments in Earth orbit. There was a variety of Spacelab-associated hardware, so a distinction can be made between the major Spacelab program missions with European scientists running missions in the Spacelab habitable module, missions running other Spacelab hardware experiments, and other STS missions that used some component of Spacelab hardware.
