Created RFI Sentry, a prototype global portal solution for preventing and identifying the source of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), providing satellite operators and users the ability to prevent costly RFI to satellite transponders and to quickly identify sources of transponder RFI from anywhere around the world. The system implements a revolutionary methodology to help prevent RFI, quickly identify the source of RFI, and resolve transponder conflicts. In addition to benefiting the Satellite Communications industry, the methodology can be applied to prevent or identify RFI in a wide range of fixed-frequency wireless RF communication networks where only a single transmitter is allowed within a given frequency range, physical destination, direction, or time including Terrestrial Microwave, WiMAX, Cellular or Lighter-Than-Air (LTA) RF Relay Stations.
Broadcasting Board of Governors Proposal
Authored a winning proposal for delivering a Global Monitor and Control (M&C) System to the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG). The proposal was produced for one of the world’s leading providers of M&C systems to the Satellite and Broadcast industry, a recognized industry leader in creating innovative integration solutions and is a critical preferred provider to the industry’s leading companies, including FOX, Turner, Arqiva, CNN, TBS, Viacom, Disney, ESPN, ABC, Discovery and more. The primary mission of BBG is to deliver high quality, high availability audio and video programming from all BBG and International Broadcasting Bureau (IBB broadcast element) locations to destinations globally, and two-way Local Area Network/Worldwide Area Network (LAN/WAN) and telephone interconnect with 22 major relay Station complexes. In support of this mission, designs procures, installs, enhances, modifies and maintains a worldwide telecommunications distribution infrastructure consisting of complex satellite gateway facilities (Washington D.C., Germany, Czech Republic, Kuwait and the Philippines), operating numerous satellite systems (Intelsat, NewSkies, Asiasat, Eutelsat, Arabsat, Nilesat, Telestar and others) including fiber optic cable and microwave interconnects. The proposal described the creation and implementation of a Global M&C system, defined as Local M&C Systems at multiple locations that when tied together result in a single Global M&C System.
Consulted on a large-scale client-server telecommunications billing system. The system platforms included Windows, LANs, HP Unix, IBM Mainframe, and AS400. Had shared responsibility for project planning, project management, and technical support for over 300 C++ developers, as well as direct purchasing and maintenance of HP-UX Systems and LANs.
Designed and developed an Access system for customers to analyze their billing.
