WORK EXPERIENCE: Trans World Airlines (TWA), Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS), Florida. 1964-1966 - Worked as subcontractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) where I was responsible for the receipt, processing, transportation, and destruction of classified documentation and materials used in support of strategic missile/satellite projects and other classified government sponsored programs. Managed their main vaults and eight (8) classified media retention centers. North American Aviation, North American Rockwell, Rockwell International, Boeing North American. 1966-1997 Worked in design, manufacturing, test, and flight operation environments and held engineering positions in quality, reliability and safety. Held key assignments on the Apollo, Skylab, Apollo Soyuz, Space Shuttle, Shuttle-C, Heavy Lift Launch Vehicle (HLLV) and X-33 Programs and participated in both the Apollo 1 and Apollo 13 accident investigations. In my position as lead Product Acceptance Analyst, I presented and obtained government acceptance for the Approach and Landing (ALT) test facility; space shuttle orbiters Enterprise, Challenger, and Columbia; and hundreds of mission equipment and ground support equipment end items whose combined value exceeded six billion dollars. Served as the companys information systems development point-man and assisted with the design, testing and implementation of numerous major information management systems to streamline product processing and reduce manufacturing, operations and maintenance costs, including the configuration management system currently used to monitor the as-designed as-built status of the Space Shuttle Orbiter vehicles and their supporting ground support equipment. Created and directed the National Aeronautics and Space Administrations (NASA) Compressed Symbology Testing (CST) Laboratory and was instrumental in developing and testing 2-D symbol marking and reading technology. This included software testing, marking process development, metallurgical testing, reader development and system integration activities designed to bring 2-D technology to point of commercialization. Planned and negotiated the first government two-dimensional (2-D) symbol operational evaluation program (the United States Coast Guards Phase I Symbol Identification Flight Test Program). Submitted Innovation Disclosures and Patent Applications covering 42 marking processes and seven symbol capture and decoding methods. Robotic Vision Systems, Inc. (RVSI). (1997 to 2006) Served as the Director of the Symbology Research Center while working with NASA and the Department of Defense (DoD) to further develop 2-D symbol technology and to assist with it's transfer to both the government and private sectors. Considered to be the leading expert in the application of permanent compressed symbology markings and the primary author of NASAs Data Matrix Identification Standard (NASA-STD-6002) and related Handbook (NASA-HDBK-6002), which have been used as a model for other government, commercial and international marking standards. Other key accomplishment included the successful management of the marking portion of the USAF Aging Landing Gear Life Extension Program, NASA Material - International Space Station  Experiment (M-ISS-E) Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Marking Certification Program, the DoD/National Center of Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) Retrofit Part Marking Program and the USCG Phase II DPM Flight Test Program. Also obtained and managed two (2) RVSI/NASA Space Act Agreements initiated to develop advanced 2-D technologies including multiple read-through-paint devices and many patented symbol marking processes. EDUCATION: Antelope Valley College, Lancaster, California and the University of Central Florida, Cocoa, Florida - Liberal Arts (Engineering, Business Management, and the Social and Physical Sciences). INDUSTRY ASSOCIATIONS: AIDC 100 - a non-profit, self-sustaining, non-political organization of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) professionals and others who have significantly contributed to the growth and advancement of the industry. AWARDS AND RECOGNITION: --NSA Exception Service award - for actions taken on the part of the government to protect national secrets. --All of the employee awards offered by Rockwell International with the exception of the Presidents Award (highest company award), which I was nominated for on 3 separate occasions --NASA Group Achievement Award  for significant contributions to the successful completion of the technology test bed pathfinder series verifying the capability of the Space Shuttle Main Engine Test Facility --NASA Group Achievement Award  for verifying the readiness of the Dryden Space Flight Center Space Shuttle Approach and Landing Facility --NASA Group Achievement Award  for outstanding achievements in the development, implementation, and operation of the Space Shuttle Configuration Management and other Management Systems --Manned Flight Awareness Award  For contributions related to the identification of flight hardware variances that could have resulted in flight failures. --Ten (10) NASA Project Awards  for advancing the Nations success in aeronautics and space --The Astronauts Silver Snoppy Award  For innovations that greatly enhanced flight safety and mission success --Eight (8) NASA Certificates of Recognition  for creative development of technical innovations --The Federal Laboratory Consortium Award of Merit  for Excellence in Technology Transfer --NASAs Directors Commendation  for dedicated service to the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) --Inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame (2002)  for development of remarkable products from space technology that provide significant benefit to mankind
