Completed a design for a Virginia Class (777) Submarine "Remote Speaker Box". The effort included defining initial requirements through design, engineering reviews with senior engineers, change and update cycles, and final drawing release. During the entire process, ensured the correct MIL-SPEC guidelines were met (particularly for EMI, shock, and vibration).
Assisted with additional new designs and incorporated engineering changes to existing hardware, including printed circuit board design and drawings.
Created a series of block diagrams for the Egyptian Navy Fast Missile Craft detailing the entire shipboard communication system as well as the combat systems hardware.
Created space arrangements for the Egyptian Navy Fast Missile craft and determined the locations and relative positions for the majority of the shipboard hardware, taking into account human factors (optimal wall-mounting locations for maximum usability), clearance zones (especially in respect to the operator and emergency egress routes), and cabling.
Worked within the Mechanical Support group for Boiler Services in areas ranging from boiler tube replacement design and project scheduling, to on-site power plant visits and failure analysis.
Assisted an engineering team in driving the 64 square foot Quiet Electronic Drive shade system into full production.
Designed testing fixtures, created test schedules, and performed mechanical sub-assembly testing, including gearing fatigue, acoustic levels, and on-site usage scenarios.
Captured, analyzed, and presented data to technical leads.
Involved with part specifications, manufacturing documentation and other operational work needed to move product from engineering and into production.
Worked with a group of experienced engineers in the Main Reduction Gear, Clutches, & Couplings Section.
Developed a procedure for the removal of bearings on a ship test site and helped to formulate a procedure for the installation of a new test site for a new class of naval vessels.
Traveled to Charleston, SC for a week, to observe overhaul on a naval vessel.
Created spreadsheets to perform calculations for gearing.
