Senior Systems Engineer - Jindivik
- Conducted functional analysis of JBRF operations and interface analysis of fleet operations.
- Produced designs and specifications for the future Jindivik Aerial Target System.
- Designed and developed a real-time flight simulation program for Jindivik. Using Object Pascal for Windows, it included a simulation engine and flight controls display.
- Demonstrated the simulation system at JBRF. The simulation results correlated favourably with recorded telemetry from the aircraft.
- Designed parts of the Jindivik Digital Autopilot containing data acquisition, flight control, command and telemetry processors.
- Performed multi-path fading analysis on the Jindivik Telecommand link using VCCALC®.
