GTE: Silicon Compiler Hardware Partitioning System (SPARTA) (1984) - this experimental system was developed to investigate the automatic partitioning of electronic systems described in the MODULA-like ZEUS Hardware Description Language (alternative to VHDL) into major hierarchical partitions down to the chip level, which would then be automatically designed by a silicon compiler. (member of a 2 person team)

GTE: Direct Execution Microprocessor (1983) - this experimental development project investigated the feasibility of using directly executed high level language (e.g. LISP and the 1979 MIT Scheme chip) for use in electronic programmable controller products such as the GTE Sylvania Modular Electronic Control Assembly (MECA).  The goal was to solve the dilema of slower than real time interpreted execution that provided program change flexibility, versus the time delay of compilation to achieve full real-time execution speed.  The cost and size of main and external memory for the development host were also a consideration.  A direct execution microcomputer prototype was fabricated using 2 custom VLSI chip types made from 5 micron NMOS using internal GTE labs CAD tools and in-house foundry.  Major components included:

VLSI Push Down Automata Controller Chip - capable of executing LL1 grammars 100 recursions

GTE: GTD-120 Requirements Model (1979) - this report manually created the description of an already existing GTD-120 PABX product, but using an internally developed bi-partite graph requirements modeling method.  The purpose was to determine the feasibility of using one of several proposed requirements languages (P2 and RTRL) for describing telephone switch behavioral requirements.  (member of 3 person team).

UConn Academic Resource Utilization (1978) - this system calculates utilization of academic resources for reporting to University and state officials, including building/room utilization, instructor contract hours, teaching loads, and other metrics used to calculate budget projections.  (supervisor of two student developers).

Bell Labs: Compool Record (1971) - this system saved computer resources expended on system builds of the No. 1 ESS Generic Program (over one million lines of code) by tracking the changed definition of global symbols and macros and their use by modules, thereby requiring compilation of only those modules referencing changed symbols.  (sole developer working with several domain experts)

UConn Student Scheduling (1967,1972,1975) - this system schedules students to classes granting section choices and alternate courses.  The earliest version (1967) was built as an emergency replacement for the IBM CLASS/7040 scheduling program when IBM abandoned IBSYS (7040/7090) in favor of the System/360 in the mid-sixties.  Later versions (1972) allowed administrators to prioritize enrollment in courses by major or class standing, and included extensive peripheral reports and file management sub-systems for the course catalog, semester schedule of classes, student request / enrollment files, etc.  The final system (1975) included sophisticated metrics to monitor the operation of the heuristic algorithms and allow for fine tuning of the scheduling process.  This system was in use until 1996 when a modern commercially available online telephone registration system was acquired.  (sole developer working with many domain experts over many years)

Panametrics (Waltham, MA) thru the Entegee Agency (Waltham, MA) (April 2000) – this was a short term contract to develop a Windows-like GUI for an embedded system (Motorola 68323 series) hosted in a hand held instrument for measuring gas flow and pressure.  Rational Rose UML modeling and round trip engineering were used to create a C++ application for this system.

WSU Small Business Development Center (SBDC) (1990-95) - this ongoing contract with SBDC provides my services as a patent / product reviewer to inventors wishing to submit their idea for review prior to patent application or venture capital procurement.

Kreager Associates, Inc (KAI) (1994-95) - this ongoing University contract with KAI is for the development of a proprietary computer network (ETHERNET) CAD tool using C/C++ to function under the Microsoft Windows operating environment.

PWS/Kent Publishing Co. (1993-94) - this work involved the review of two books, one on the topic of the DEMETER object oriented development environment, and the other on Power PC Assembly Language Programming.

Bedini Electronics / Tom Walsh, Patent Atty (1993) - this work involved assisting the client in obtaining a patent (#5,487,057 - US Patent Office: Apparatus and Method for Reducing Electronic Relaxation Noise Present in Information Recording Medium issued January 23, 1996) for a device that improves the sound of CD audio recordings, by electronically measuring the result of applying his device, and preparing reports for the patent application process.

Modeling Technologies Inc /ZDI (1991) - this work involved the assistance of a party involved with a GTE contract associated with the GBMS (1987) for which I was group leader.  The party was entitled to a copy of the software developed according to a technology sharing agreement with GTE and needed some additional assistance in installing / operating the software after the contract with GTE ended.  The client was referred to me by the GTE corporate attorney.

Hewlett Packard, Spokane Division (1990) Enhancement of the HP 11836A 0.3 GMSK Modulation Measurement Software Package - this university contract involved software maintenance to an electronic instrument that performed modulation analysis.  Modulation rate, packet bit size, and digital filter configurations had to be changed, and the system tested against laboratory hardware.

National CSS (1969) - this work involved installation of the Electronic Circuit Analysis Package (ECAP) on the VP/CSS time sharing system (a 3rd party version of VM/370 CMS).  The original program as delivered required overlays, which did not function well under virtual memory, and had to be reorganized.
