Cell: 516.528.8517 E-mail: Web: A2/11/2013 Statement of Purpose This portfolio is intended to showcase past projects in order to convey expertise in mechanical, electrical, manufacturing, and software engineering abilities. The scope and complexity of the included projects can not accurately be portrayed through images or text; therefore this portfolio is designed to inspire and initiate conversations about the projects featured. Images of projects worked on during my tenure at Arkwin are permissible to display due to a lack of Non-disclosure agreements between myself and Arkwin Industries.

  • 8. 2008 – 2009 : President / Acting Captain SBS Seawolf 1 – Resurrected the defunct solarboat team after 10 years of inactivity. Designed all mechanical components of the competition vessel including the first Contra-Rotating propeller system fielded at competition. Innovative displacement hull used torque based steering without the use of a rudder. This vessel placed 14th out of 18 teams internationally. Manufacturing was done exclusively by our team utilizing university equipment. Innovative techniques for hull fabrication were developed and implemented within the one year span of the project. 4

  • 10. 2009-2011 : President / Acting Captain SBS Seawolf 2 – After the first successful attempt at competing in the “Solar Splash” Competition I set out to develop a technologically advanced vessel for the next competition. The major design constraint was the freight elevator leading to our basement workshop so I designed the vessel to split in two easily with a bulkhead. The performance of the contra-rotating propellers was refined with a single nacelle design incorporating a rear facing rudder for streamlined performance. The hull of the boat was constructed of 6061 aluminum tubing that was bent and welded forming a rigid structure to mount components and build the fiberglass skin. This vessel was the most advanced boat built by any SUNY University. We utilized only campus resources and machinery to construct this vessel. Sonar Systems coordinated with GPS to relay coordinates to on-shore computers and develop an integrated sensor network, winning us the most advanced electrical system and a trophy to bring back to our University. Senior Design Project: Received an A grade 6

  • 14. OP-1: This project was created as a result of our university hosting a “Humans vs. Zombies” game with over 800 participants. A friendly competition ensued between engineering students as to who could build the most advanced NERF gun. My entry won several contests both at the university as well as on, and was even featured on ROF: 1 Round per second Range: 200+ Feet Power Source: CO2 10
  • 15. OP-2: The successor to the original overpowered NERF blaster was created after the original CO2 power system was banned due to having too high of a range (200+ feet). The OP-2 was designed to have the highest rate of fire possible with a foam projectile. All parts were designed and fabricated as part of another friendly engineering competition, which I subsequently won. ROF: 4 Rounds per second Range: 30-40 feet Power Source: Battery 11

  • 26. Project outline: Arkwin Industries relies heavily on aging mechanical machinery to manufacture locking Pawls. The system for switching from one product line to another generally took several days to switch components of the machine. I designed a CNC Pawl grinder to grind transitional radii within .00001” in a reliable and repeatable way That also facilitated switching Between product lines. This Increased efficiency of the Grinding operations several Fold while eliminating user Error due to misplaced or damaged parts. 22

  • 28. Project outline: Arkwin Industries required an overhaul of the technology used to test their product lines to meet FAA and customer approvals. Setup times exceeded 4 months in some cases and could only be run during normal business hours. The invention of my automated test controller enabled arkwin to set up and run tests in a matter of 2-3 weeks, while giving the option to disconnect the test to run another and resume at a later date with no additional programming or cabling required. All cables are standard and color coded depending on what sensor or actuator they are designed to connect to. The DAQ utilized in this setup is expandable through FPGA to run any current or future testing. 24

  • 30. Project Outline: A Differential Pressure Indicator (DP-I) is a critical hydraulic component in modern aircraft which diverts the flow from a clogged hydraulic filter to an auxiliary filter and prevent a dangerous buildup of pressure. Testing methods existed at Arkwin for over 20 years that averaged 1.5 hours per DP-Indicator tested, with most indicators requiring multiple tests to adjust them within design tolerance. My method illustrated in the next few pages brought the testing time of the fixture from 1.5 hours to test 4 units, to 5 minutes to test 5 units. This fixture was delivered on time, under budget, and was able to pay for itself in just man-hours saved within the first quarter it was implemented. Utilizing simplified controls and a PLC I was able to retain strict operator interactions and ensure a consistent testing regardless of which product line was inserted into the apparatus. 26

  • 35. 2012 – Team Captain (Multiple Scoregasm) 7th Place Red Bull Creation Contest “Let there be light” Illuminated Tag– For my teams entry into the Red Bull creation contest “Let there be light” we designed a multiplayer tag game with interactive LED illuminated vests that wirelessly communicated with a base station to control both the game and end conditions. Game modes include “Zombies” where one player is randomly selected as the zombie and must infect other players, “Red Vs. Blue” which evenly divides players onto two teams to fight for supremacy, human simon, and “Kill the man with the ball”. My team placed 7th out of 200 and just missed making it into the final 6. 31
