Cruise Missile Officer
Cruise Missile/Tomahawk Missile Program Manager; Head Afloat Planning System Pacific. I managed the logistics for submarine and surface ship cruise missiles in the Pacific Fleet. This included managing loadouts and rearming for deploying/ed units. I also oversaw the Pacific Afloat Planning System team. This crew deployed TAD to the Strike Group Commanders on the Carriers. Their role was to finalize Tomahawk missions before assigning to firing ships for execution. Navy Unit Citation.
May 1995 - Jun 1998
Operational Test Coordinator
Testing Director for Global Command and Control System, Navy Command usage. I was the director for Operational Testing of JMCIS/GCCS-N/OSS and related variants at Navy afloat and shore sites. As such I managed the day to day operations of all test directors, in their military issues, and their operational issues. In addition, as test director for GCCS, I worked with many shore and afloat sites, as well as Joint and other service activities, in the deployment of this Joint system. I had to rewrite the rules for operational testing, because DISA deployed systems differently than Navy, resulting in changes to the reporting and time gates for this test.
Oct 1993 - May 1995
Main Propulsion Assistant
I oversaw all propulsion machinery for this multi-reactor, multi-space engineering plant, during the ship's farewell deployment. This included day to day operations, maintenance, and emergency self-accomplished depot level repairs while underway. In addition, oversaw the decommissioning and tear down of reactor and propulsion machinery spaces. Safety monitor for defueling. Noted by NAVSEA 08 for attention to detail in stopping procedure on a missed step. (This is a big deal). My engineering spaces during decommissioning were noted by DeMars (NAVSEA 08 Actual) for being more squared away than most operational units.

Radiological Controls Instructor
Radiological Controls Instructor/Inspector on the SURFLANT NPMTT. In this position, I assisted the Mobile Training team in ship visits in preparation for Operational Reactor Safeguards Exams. Our work was essentially preparatory inspections, although ships were not licensed through our work.
