Global Aerospace Manufacturing Corporation and defense contractor
Sr. Software Engineer | MD-11 Simulation benches
Team leader of 7 members to Maintain, Support and Test an Avionics system composed
of:Electronic Instrument System (EIS),Centralized Fault Display
System CFDS), Flight Management System (FMS), Auto-Flight System (AFS) and Full
Authority Digital Engine Controller (FADEC).
Workefficiently to support conformity and certificationtests with FAA at the benches as
a Team lead. VAX simulated data are sent to the LRUs via VME bus. Analog and discrete
are generated via VME cards in VME module.
