Manpower Professional, Cypress CA April 2002 through May 30 2003
Contracted to HR TEXTRON Incorporation, Santa Clarita, CA as consulting electronic engineer to design VXI-bus based actuator controller and calibration printed circuit boards (PCB) for Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) Electro-Hydraulic actuators functional and calibration test-station. Both boards were laid out, assembled, tested and de-bugged under my supervision. The closed loop actuator controller PCB monitored in real time the SSME redundant actuators positions, output torques, pneumatic pressures, and oil temperatures using absolute rotary encoder, redundant Rotary Variable Differential Transformers (RVDT), load cells, and temperature sensors. Acquired measurements were reported back to test-station host computer through VXI backplane and IEEE-488 serial bus for further analysis. The code for microcontroller was written from the ground up, tested, and evaluated within a very tight five months schedule. Prepared electronic and motion control subassembly of HR Textron proposals for Boeing's un-manned aircraft fueling boom, fly-by-light un-manned flying vehicles and Bell Helicopter's actuator projects.
The board designs employed the following devices and main circuit modules:
