1. Designed, developed and performed tests in response to a customer request for an early demonstration of air vehicle Terrain following system capability in the laboratory. I also compiled the finalized analysis and report of the findings. This was a major engineering department milestone activity which was completed in a very short time frame with astounding success; resulting in top monetary bonus for the corporation
2. By re-hosting test support software on an HP workstation, developed and debugged test scripts, reducing weekly engineering labor and associated costs, and enabling critical adherence to schedule.
3. Developed automated test scripts. Saved department 40 man-hours each week and decreased the cycle time to deliver each software baseline.
4. Demonstrated several new space vehicle command and control procedures required for a critical mission exercise. Completion of this program milestone resulted in increased program award fees.
