Exceeding 10 years of experience commanding a solid background in mechanical design, layout and detailing of aerospace structures. Technically skilled at 3D CAD solid modeling and ASME Y14.5M Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing. Capacity for rapidly mastering new CAD platforms.
3D CAD MODELING EXPERTISE
SolidWorks 2015 Professional, AutoCad
+ Designed access cover panels for F/A-18 E/F Auxiliary Systems. Redesigned panels
required reduced radar signatures and simplified Auxiliary Systems maintenance.
Prepared drawings for composite laminate skin covers.
+ Initiated a part change negotiation across departments to improve Systems Cover installation.
+ Designed improvements for MD-80/90 on wing structures and control surfaces.
- Performed design tasks for customer directed improvements on aircraft structures
+ Designed supports for hydro-mechanical distribution lines on the rear of the C-17 wings.
- Established system to segment assemblies of hydro-mechanical distribution lines
with team members to create uniformity between CAD files.
+ Bracket design for Hypersonic Test Vehicle (HTV) avionics.
+ Electronic packaging of Transmitter – Battery Box Assembly and
RF switches on isolator plate employing wiring diagram for “Rocket Cam”.
Verified clearance of full displacement for vibration/shock dampening/absorption.
+ Redesigned HTV Environmental Control Unit (controls temperature and humidity
in payload cone). Added spur outlet and adjustable damper/choke.
+ Items described above were designed to maximize manufacturability and assembly (DFMA).
Considerations include performance/function, reductions in production, operations, time and costs.
DESIGN ENGINEER 2013 – 2015
Textron Inc. New Orleans, Louisiana
Created supports and brackets for auxiliary systems in the Navy's high performance marine vehicle SSC (Ship to Shore Connector). Priorities were to minimize weight, cost and installation effort. Supports were customized for unique situations and used repetitively when prudent. Designed components and assemblies from customer specifications, sketches and Sr. engineer’s verbal instructions using SolidWorks models and drawings with strong understanding of product structure tree and EPDM system.
