JB ENTERPRISES
June 1993-Present PRESIDENT

Owner/Founder of "high-tech" Information Systems small business providing hardware and software systems support. Capabilities include Web Development, Business Process Re-Engineering, and creation of Telecommunications and Computer Networks.


VITRO CORPORATION

1991-June 1993 ASSOC. PRINCIPAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS & NETWORKING

Responsible for the Telecommunications and Networking functions within the Software Center of Excellence (CE) including responsibility for managing the assignments, work-flow, timeliness, and budgets associated with the Center's Telecommunications and Networking Contracts, Tasks and Delivery Orders. Responsible for developing a telecommunications and networking infra-structure based on open system standards that will operate in an efficient and effective manner, and be capable of supporting both Commercial and DoD-wide applications. The infrastructure consists of LANs, hardware, executive software, software tools, Network Management Systems and facilities, and access to the Vitro Wide Area Network.

1988-1991 DIRECTOR TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT

Responsible for defining and developing strategies for the utilization of technology to support the objectives of the Corporate Strategic Plan. Created Corporate Technology Development Plan that identifies the technological areas that the corporation should be pursuing and the rationale for the technological areas chosen. The plan includes descriptions of the technological marketplace, the sales potential, and the resource requirements for establishing VITRO's preeminence within the selected marketplace.

1983-1988 DEPARTMENT HEAD

Managed the Systems Technology Department. Department functions cover the full spectrum of systems engineering and include: development of computer models and simulations, system requirements studies, acquisition management, hardware and software systems integration, hardware and software test and evaluation, interface and operational documentation, data management and logistics support, in-service engineering, and training.

Responsible for major field offices in Norfolk and Manassas, Virginia, Warminster, Pennsylvania, and the main department office in Rockville, Maryland.

1980-1983 ASSISTANT DEPARTMENT HEAD

Provided engineering administration for the Systems Technology Department's contract efforts on acoustic systems development, software development, test criteria development, installation and checkout, and human engineering studies for US Navy sonar systems.


1978-1980 GENERAL DYNAMICS PROGRAM MANAGER

Coordinated design and development of automatic test equipment used in all STANDARD Missile programs. As Program Manager directed the development and overseas demonstrations of Bistatic Radar System(BRASS). Conducted engineering studies culminating in successful proposals for airborne radar and missile guidance systems.


1974-1978 HUGHES AIRCRAFT COMPANY GROUP SUPERVISOR

Program Manager and Project Engineer for Thinline Telemetry IR&D project. The objective was to develop a 0.625" OD x 2.5" L telemetry module that performed signal conditioning, A/D conversion, data processing, timing, and data transmission functions within a one inch OD towed array.

Directed the system design of EDM SURTASS 256 channel digital telemetry subsystem, the SURTASS array, the tow cable, and a 40- ton winch.


1972-1973 HONEYWELL CORPORATION    PRINCIPAL ENGINEER

Conducted design studies for a joint United States-United Kingdom Navies' project to develop an experimental active bottom bounce sonar. Designed T/R switching equipment, conducted systems integration, monitored performance, conducted fault isolation and assessment, interface control and configuration management, foreign site surveys, and installation planning, and provided project management.


1966-1971  HUGHES AIRCRAFT COMPANY    ELECTRONICS ENGINEER

Systems Engineer AN/BQQ-5 Submarine Sonar System

Responsible for complete design and development of low frequency signal processing system for towed array sonar.
Performed sonar circuit design and sonar subsystem design including systems for analog and digital conversions. Responsible for complete design, development, fabrication and test of experimental system for predicting farfield acoustic response patterns from nearfield sound pressure measurements.

Proposed, presented, designed, developed, and field tested instrumentation subsystems for deep ocean data processing systems. Developed line of phase-lock loop tracking filters using fm and digital techniques. Member of development team responsible for developing a state of the art analog to digital converter.


PROGRAMMING and SOFTWARE CAPABILITIES: Thorough knowledge and experience using most software application packages for data, word, communications, and graphics; simulation, modeling, and computer assisted design.
