Responsibility included troubleshooting aircraft input to output anomalies, Manchester 1553 Comm link troubleshooting, environmental testing, G force analysis, DFB (digital flight backup) and, government acceptance protocols. All units I worked on, were troubleshot to component level, and tested systemically using main frame simulators. I also investigated flight personnel documentation to address returned units for incorrect I/O functionality or BIT (built in test) failures.
Prior to this, I was one of 3 technicians that worked on the AH-64 RCP (Rocket Control Panel) for the Apache helicopter. Duties included both troubleshooting, testing, and, analysis of failures pursuant to missile arming and flight times (squibing/fuzing). Responsibilities included devising new testing protocols for temperature compensation, pilot slew rate aiming failures, and, digital analysis of I/O commands relating to wing POD selections.
In addition, I worked approximately 8 months in the resident High Voltage laboratory to develop and build power supplies for the F18. Before concluding my position, I also worked on several components, and support architecture for the Stealth F 117.
I qualified in electronic material handling, ESD mitigation, FOD inspection, government source inspection procedures, ROs, conformal coating technology, and held MIL-SPEC certifications in both standard and high voltage soldering to be allowed access to military grade equipment resolved to a component level.
Nearing completion of school, I obtained a part time position repairing copying machines. Duties included wiring, troubleshooting, and, modification of office equipment for customized installations at the customer premises. Developed a new procedure for aligning Mylar blades to the Titanium drums that, while only costing 2 cents, saved the company thousands of dollars in man hours, and twice that in discarded blades. Awarded company recognition for my efforts.
