Human System Collaboration Engineer September 2009 - Present Scalable UUV Mission Manager (SUMM) - HSC & Software Task Lead Determined user needs for a scalable mission manager to accompany an open autonomy architecture Designed the system information architecture, user interactions, and feature set Led a team of 4 to design & implement a modular, extensible software architecture for Mission Planning in Java that is run-time configurable in order to stay in sync with future releases of the autonomy architecture Airdrop Mission Planner HSC Engineer for Global Response Force, Airdrop Damage Estimation, Wireless DTED, Wireless Gate Release, and Dispersion planning systems Analyzed operational needs through workshops with operators. Defined workflow and feature set, designed the user interface to fulfill the operators needs. Captured the design through detailed use case documentation. Integrated the design of new features into the existing CAT user interface. TacDroid - HSC Task Lead Observed tactical BAO users and analyzed kit, workflow, and operator needs through multiple site visits, including participation in night training operations and CAS evaluations. Led the interaction design team to add new features to the tactical Androidbased system. Smart Determined user needs for an Android app though multiple HSC workshops, defined system concept, designed system features and user interactions Documented the design through extensive screen flow models, designed a novel Quick Start Guide, created the system diagram, and wrote the software instruction portion of the user manual Advanced Beacons - HSC Task Lead Determined user needs through user workshops and customer interviews. Designed the user interface features as a plug-in to an existing geo-spatial software tool.
