Dear [NAME]:
If your organization would benefit from more than 20 years of experience collabo
rating across departments and business units to forge innovative applications of
critical technologies, please review the enclosed resume. You will find me to b
e an accomplished software solutions architect who can assess needs analyses, de
sign specifications, and lead teams to build systems that are both effective and
innovative. My ability to diagnose inefficiencies, troubleshoot complex obstacl
es, and maximize processes through expert solution development would prove benef
icial to your company.
My persistent success with military and industrial organizations demonstrates th
at I am a creative problem solver and proponent of effective solutions that lead
to higher margins. Superb skills integrating technologies for enhanced function
ality are among the most notable traits I would bring to any position. Having le
d lifecycle technology development including the symbiotic relationship between
systems and organizational functions, I have developed the aptitude to cast over
arching vision and generate consensus related to long range strategy and impleme
My most valuable highlights include:
* Developing technologies for Northrop Grumman to decode an arbitrary, and an F
35 MADL data stream expressed in XML, parse them and translate them into a corre
lative format, and enabling communication between them as a part of a Next Gener
ation Avionics R&D initiative.
* Designing and developing data communications software for an air defense syste
* Creating systems/software engineering design of Command Destruct System and us
ing Visual C++ to support satellite tracking for communications capture for L3 C
* Creating a High Level Interpretive Flight Control Language that enabled missio
n planning and flight control, with serial interface allowing connection to test
equipment for a Navy UAV
If these outcomes and the qualities they represent would be a fit with your orga
nization, please contact me at your convenience to arrange an interview. Thank y
ou for your time and consideration, and I look forward to our conversation.
