ANALYSIS KSA SUMMARY – Performed analyses using self constructed mathematical models in Excel, Visual Basic for Applications, Maple and HP Basic (legacy). I reference Numerical Recipes, Abramowitz and Stegun, Gradshteyn & Ryzhik, Wolfram Alpha; IEEE, SIAM and SPIE online; and texts by Papoulis, DiFranco & Rubin, etc. Worked with government labs and team mates to conduct simulations.


  • Developed eight combat system architecture subsystems including functions, data rates and processing loads to support architecture loading and hardware architecture development.
  • Evaluated Correlation Velocity Log velocity estimation performance (least squares curve fit) due to hardware tolerances and platform motions for Draper, NR-1 and RN2093 (study only) applications.
  • Developed error budget based on maximum likelihood velocity estimation from channel correlations.
  • Supervised SME’s reacquisition and imaging simulation to define navigation hardware and software.
  • Developed interactive ice detection and tracking performance model for three Ice Monitoring System physical configurations versus relative system of systems cost as part of trade study proposal example.
  • Defined unmanned mine neutralization system using forced ranking component, subsystem and system trades that resulted in an effective Littoral Combat Ship mission module solution for proposal.
  • Supervised sensor system software sizing based on self-generated algorithm description.
  • Developed closed form matrix solution for retro-directional sensor performance analysis.
  • Traded multiple candidate unmanned mine reconnaissance systems according to clearance probability, cost, ship impact, etc. Clearance probability model emulated US Navy standard tools.
  • Developed detailed anti-submarine surveillance concept performance, size, weight and power model.
  • Supported multi-sensor Integration and Test with various numerical algorithm analyses.
  • Defined and evaluated results from US/UK Joint Surface Ship Torpedo Defense Classifier simulation.
  • Designed a mine-hunting sonar waveform (one bit direct conversion through transmitter response).
