Established priorities and guided development with >300 engineers contributing to ICD contents. Conducted analysis/risk assessments; recommended risk mitigation strategies. Top level requirements defined in Technical Requirements Document and Air Force illustrations, and flowed down where it was ultimately entered into DOORS database. Impact!! Led technical team in overcoming complex technical challenges in smooth transition of 4 technologies into phase III SBIR prime contractor programs. Coordinated transition plan agreements between prime contractors and small businesses. Increased requirements document completion 80% during project tenure. Streamlined development processes and improved productivity through effective reporting, prioritization and customer weekly communications. Received commendation from United States Air Force for successful efforts. Developed method of requiring supporting lead at each contractor to achieve continuity and ensure ownership of tasks. Method served essential in project progressing at faster rate. LEAD SYSTEMS PROJECT ENGINEER General Dynamics, Advanced Information Systems Division, Anaheim Hills, CA 2003 – 2007 US defense contractor with last year’s profit of $564M serving defense industry in IS and combat systems areas. Scope of responsibility: directed 10 individuals in both hardware and software development. $14M/monthly budget. Reported to Program Manager and Site Program Director. Objective: to program direct development of 1 of its kind ad-hoc wireless system to serve Army. Tasked with working with customer in establishing approach, direction, and funding to support requirement. Scheduled, planned, directed and procured all engineering resources for development of scalable, self-configuring ad-hoc sensor-embedded communications network project. Provided research/direction for technologies/routing protocols to be used in development of heterogeneous embedded sensor network. Led rewrite/reengineer /testing of software algorithms to achieve customer’s goals. Impact!!
