Work included, cost and schedule management, interface with the customer and sea trials. (SPAR 1986-1987) 

        Intelsat 6 TWTA Program: In addition to ATE for the space‑flight qualification of TWTAs, the work included project plans, cost and schedule management, documentation, and project implementation. Developed a work assignment reporting mechanism to provide performance feedback to staff, resulting in improved work performance. (SPAR 1983‑1984)
