Sr. Software Engineer  Northrop Grumman - Technical Services   10/95 - present
 Most Recent Activities
 Was employed at Northrop Grumman Corp. Technical Services in Lakewood, WA as
 a Software Engineer on the DCGS-A v3 Weather project working with JMS (Java
 Message Service) within JBOSS, and Java Web Services. Programming was in Java.
 VMware administrator for the team installing and maintaining VMware ESX Server
 on IBM Blade Center stacks and other standalone Intel based hardened servers.
 Previous Activities
 * a Lead Technical Software Engineer for the IMETS ABCS 6.x system
 Involved in porting and enhancing a Windows Server 2000 fielded IMETS system
 over to the Windows Server 2003 R2 platform, integrating U.S. Army Research 
 Laboratory (ARL), PSL and NGC developed weather software into a consolidated
 weather intelligence product called the Integrated METeorological System or
 IMETS, for short.  Programming languages used were: Java, C++, C# and Perl.

 * IDAS (IMETS Data Acquisition System) Developer
 Lead developer of the IDAS system. Hardware: Sun Ultrasparc 10 (4 nic),
 Intel Xeon Server (4 nic), IBM T41 laptop (3 nic), Dell d800 (3 nic).
 Operating system(s): Sun Solaris 9 (both sparc and x86) and 10 (x86).
 Software consisted of three primary Java applications: the controller GUI,
 the data distributor, and the data disseminator.  Also, there were various
 supporting ksh scripts for launching and configuration.  IDAS could feed
 weather data from AFWA to up to 18 IMETS weather workstations (or more
 if setup in a daisy chain configuration).  It was primarily used in the
 IMETS school houses or classrooms, and in the developer and test labs.

 * Weather Data Emulator
 Developer of software that used canned data to emulate data feeds
 from various weather data acquisition devices such as the TMQ-53[4]
 over RS-232 (serial) connections.  Programming language was Java.
 * McChord AFB Wireless Surveys
 Member of the team that did the Cisco wifi access point placement surveys
 for the wireless network roll out on McChord AFB.

 * Miscellaneous SysAdmin Assignments
 Spent some time TDY doing specialty Sun Solaris System Administration
 assignments at a couple of remote Army and Air Force bases in Arizona
 and California.

 Major Accomplishments
 Initial work began with a straight port of the Block I IMETS system software
 fielded on HP 9000 s380 machines running HP-UX 8.0 to the Army's Sun Common
 Hardware/Software (CHS-II) platform -- Sun SPARCstation 20's running Solaris
 2.4.  After nearly finishing a port of a rather large X/Motif Digital Mapping
 system in C/Fortran/Perl developed over several years by a diverse group of
 DoD contractors, the decision was made to abandon the port due to delayed
 CHS-II hardware delivery schedules, and move on to the next generation IMETS. 

 The work evolved onward from there, developing integration "glue" code, and
 Java GUI development for current/future (Solaris/Windows) cross platform use.
 Solaris system administration duties: installing Solaris(Sun-OS 5) operating
 systems; tuning kernels, file system partitions and swap space; installing
 software products (such as C/C++/Fortran compilers and Sun Java releases,
 Redhat Cygwin, GNU tools, PC and MS-Windows emulators and office products);
 cloning disks; doing backups; setting up a Configuration Management mirror;
 coordinating development/integration efforts with other IMETS developers &c.

 Other Past Activities
 Solaris kernel tuning (proved Informix recommended shmmin parameter wrong!).
 Developing/maintaining the Communications and Messaging Systems interface.
 UNIX network administration of the developer lab and office LAN, including
 administering Internet gateways and Web proxies.  Upgraded to UltraSPARCs.
 Initial prototyping of a quick and dirty first generation menu system in
 Tcl/Tk led to the design of a next-gen X/Motif menu/program launcher system
 developed in the C language.  Other phases of the project were COE software
 foundation integration, system building, segment development and testing.

C++ Programmer for BEST - at AT&T Wireless Services, Kirkland WA 6/95 - 9/95
 Previously, a C++ contract programmer working for BEST on the AT&T Wireless
 (McCaw Cellular) Axys Conversion Development Team in Kirkland, WA.  The work
 was performed on HP 9000 Series 8x0 mini-computers from a networked NextStep
 Object Oriented development environment using HP's C++ compiler/translator
 under HP-UX v9.04.

 Major Accomplishments
 The majority of the work focused on C++ programming assignments related to
 database conversions. IBM EBCDIC legacy database files were converted to bcp
 loadable format to populate the next-generation Sybase client/server system.
 Several versions of the conversion program were developed and executed
 simultaneously to convert the McCaw Cellular markets throughout the U.S.
 over to the new system.  Also, did some HP-UX kernel tuning work for them.

 Other Activities
 Testing the C++ code, performing mock conversions -- both of which required
 extensive use of SQL, and some knowledge of cellular telco business cases.

Software Engineer  BDM Federal, Inc. - (Omnibus) Ft. Lewis, WA  7/94 - 6/95
 Previously, the lead Software Engineer working on an interface between the
 Army Forward Area Air Defense Command Control and Intelligence System 
 (FAAD C2I) and the Air Force Contingency TACS (Theater Air Control System)
 Automated Planning System (CTAPS), an interoperability task on the Omnibus
 DoD contract at Ft. Lewis, WA.  Work was primarily on the Sun Microsystems
 SPARCstation 2 in C and Perl with X11 under Sun-OS 4.1.3.  HP-UX LLA RARP
 code was migrated to use Sun's STREAMS based NIT for the ethernet side of
 the interface.  The asynchronous side of the interface used PPP dial-up.

 Major Accomplishments
 Other work for BDM focused on modifying all the Makefiles of one huge C^3I
 system so that the sources could be compiled for either X11R4/Motif1.1
 or X11R5/Motif1.2 under HP-UX v9.05.  Needed to make several modifications
 to the C language sources to get a clean, error free build, of course.

 Earlier C language programming tasks included porting the Domain Name
 Service (DNS) BIND package ('nslookup') to Desqview/X, and adding a plot-
 ter status query service to the X11 version of the Army Maneuver Control
 System (MCS v10-X).  Completed an Ada language coding assignment to
 to evaluate adding full-screen support for a HP super-high resolution
 monitor to MCS v10-X using X and the HP Starbase graphics package.

 Other Activities
 Performed all the System Administration duties required to get the office
 HP 9000 s375 workstations newly upgraded to HP-UX 9.03 back up to speed 
 using HP's System Administration Manager (SAM) and UNIX command-line tools.

 Example: because there were no Sun tape drives available that could read a
 DAT tape that only the HP tape drives could read, modified all installation
 shell scripts to break up a very large release package and copy it from DAT
 tape to two HP Magneto Optical (mo) disks.  Then, mounted the HP mo disks
 to the Sun SPARCstation 2 using NFS, and proceeded to complete the instal-
 lation onto the Sun hard disk.  Basically, system administration activities.

Engineering Applications Programmer/Analyst II
                   Boeing Computer Services - Seattle, WA      9/89 - 7/94
 Past member of The Boeing Company's Structural Dynamics Laboratory's Prism
 data system development (~10 person) team.  Responsible for the design and
 implementation of a client/server package to push data from shared memory
 on client data acquisition hosts over to display servers using C++ (Object
 Center and cfront), ANSI C and BSD sockets on HP 9000 s715 and s380 boxes
 running HP-UX 9.03, and to IBM RS-6000 machines running AIX.

 Major Accomplishments
 Distributed Shared Memory Services (3/94 - 7/94):  As architect and sole
 implementor of client/server processes that distributed data from shared
 memory on acquisition hosts to display servers, had day-to-day responsi-
 bility for all major architectural decisions for this piece of Prism.
 On this project, proved that C++ would be an acceptable Prism develop-
 ment language.  The clients, a server slave process, and the BSD TCP/IP
 stream socket transport layer library were all coded by me in C++.

 Data Management Services (9/92 - 3/94):  Designed and implemented the Data
 Management Services to save data from shared memory into Prism files and
 to reload Prism files back into shared memory.  A X/Motif GUI (Graphical
 User Interface) served as a front-end to the 'save' and 'load' processes.

 Shared Memory Management Services (9/89 - 9/92):  As designer and chief
 implementor of the 'shm_mgr' server and its client application interface
 C library, had day-to-day responsibility for a majority of the architec-
 tural decisions for this Prism package.  A complicated semaphore set and
 shared memory index listing services were some of its key features.  This
 project grew in importance until it was one of the core components of the
 Prism data system.

 Other Activities
 Assistant systems administration, Usenet News administrator, UUCP setups.
 Configuration management and Makefile system maintenance, C library develop-
 ment and maintenance, X/Motif programming and dialog design.  Ported the
 Prism data system to the HP 9000 s700 and IBM RS-6000 RISC machines from its
 base HP 9000 s300 m68k platform.  Also, developed two configuration file
 editors with Motif and UIM/X, and designed the easily extensible, editor
 dialog component used by their GUI successor.  As member of USENIX and SAGE,
 attended USENIX conferences yearly to bring leading edge UNIX System Adminis-
 tration and R&D technologies (Perl, Tcl/Tk, SLIP, automount) back to the lab.

Software Engineer   Logicon RDA - Tacoma/Ft. Lewis, WA        10/87 - 9/89
 Programmer on the Omnibus, TACCIMS, and TACCS-K software development
 projects out of the company's NW Regional office under DoD contract to
 the U.S. and Korean Armies.  Duties included software design, development,
 documentation, and maintenance support primarily in C (with some C Shell,
 MS-DOS Batch and Oracle/Informix SQL programming) under UNIX and MS-DOS.

 Major Accomplishments
 Omnibus meant interoperability (3/89 - 9/89):  much of the work centered
 around getting different Army computer communications sub-systems to com-
 municate with each other.  Integrated an engineering corps PC software
 system with the main UNIX MCS C^3I system by pushing messages into the
 appropriate queues across MS-DOS and UNIX file systems, and developed a
 data entry form with editing and validation capability in C so the message
 header (ie. destination field, etc.) could be filled in by the user. Also,
 designed and coded a message stream parser/filter in C for a network 
 snooper and data analysis system.  With another programmer, added the
 capability to send 8-bit binary files, as attachments wrapped in uuencoded
 tar bundles, via the existing 7-bit ASCII SMTP email system.  (This was
 similar to how MIME-encoded attachments are sent in today's email systems.)

 Other Activities
 Database development using Oracle SQL*Forms and Informix ESQL/C.  Initial
 design and documentation work on an email sub-system (old Mil. Std. 2167A).
 Configuration Management related work: ported the Revision Control System
 (RCS) from UNIX to MS-DOS, converted all the sources of a major C^3I system
 over from SCCS to RCS, coded a "safe" suid root RCS command wrapper in C,
 and built X11R3 from sources using Imake for HP-UX v6.2.
