Contributed dynamic analytical skills to conduct research and identify a new emergency power supply, replacing a legacy component; discovered the new power supply is lighter and performs better with minimum wiring changes to aircraft.
Developed a PowerPoint presentation to showcase research findings and created a cost estimate spreadsheet for production and implementation.
Performed comprehensive testing initiatives of controllable searchlight by constructing wiring needed to perform lab testing; tested searchlight under all load conditions using Astro-Med to record all data.
Authored a detailed report to itemize all testing characteristics; designed and built a portable control box for the searchlight.
Conducted testing functions on current sensor trip cures in forward and reverse current directions; created a spreadsheet to present test results; ensured trip curves were within specification.
Administered testing data through collection and organization to write an IFM to manufacturer; observed and confirmed one of the current sensors sustained a failure after many high current tests.
Oversaw functionality of DC power system ATP without Vari-Drive by correcting mistakes within documentation, organizing the continuity section s plus and pin numbers to optimize efficiency; drafted notes in the power check portion to aid in further testing initiatives.
Ensured compliance with FAA conformity check by comparing and updating all aircraft and lab drawings including addition of all SRANs; created a wire-length spreadsheet for all wires in the power system; utilized spread sheet to calculate expected resistance of all runs of wire from component to component.
Verified resistance values of each wire in the power system in the test lab and input value into the spreadsheet for tracking purposes; assessed values derived from the lab to check results against expected aircraft resistance to obtain credit from FAA for all testing performed in test lab.
Notated needed wire changes/additions to test lab; sent red line drawings to drafters to update corrections into the system.
ARNOLD-HANAFIN CORPORATION, Boca Raton, FL 2007-2009
Lab Technician, Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation
Strategically progressed Electrical Bench Test Facility (EBTF) project by authoring procedures for switching configuration as well as the Canadian Maritime Helicopter Program (CMHP) configuration; spearheaded implementation of procedures for the EBTF to test CMHP Power distribution, notating no defects allowed testing to move ahead of schedule.
Streamlined technician productivity through detailing of procedures to allow technicians not familiar with EBTF to change between configurations.
