  1. 1. Walt Scoggins 12065 S. Tallkid Ct. Parker, CO 80138 || cell: (720) 530-1098 || email: Summary: More than 20 years of experience working every facet of the life-cycle development process for proprietary and military programs for satellite, military aircraft, commercial airplane, unmanned air vehicles (UAV), and defense systems. I have worked in finance, configuration management, and planning positions. Specialties: Proposal and risk reduction development, cost and risk assessment, requirements verification, validation, and analysis, systems integration, spacecraft integration and test, airworthiness accreditation, LEO and GEO satellite systems, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV), GPS, radar, phased array antenna systems, Electronic Support Measures (ESM), Electronic Warfare Self Protection (EWSP), radio frequency (RF) and optical communications networks SONET (space and ground), link budgets Summary of projects I have supported by groupings: 777X System Engineering Support (Commercial Airplane) 787- 9/10 System Engineering Support (Commercial Airplane P-8A Poseidon Maritime Surveillance (Military Aircraft) Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) (Australia, Korea, Turkey, and UAE) Provided surge support as facilitator for assignment and closure of FAA and EASA agency action items for the 787-9 Airplane Type Certification (ATC) development assurance assessments. Work with the requirements group to ensure verification and validation activities including requirement traces and allocations were correct, writing analysis for many of the requirements that could not be tested. Provided requirements support to disciplines including avionics, mechanical systems, flight controls, hydraulics, electrical subsystems, propulsion, fuels, loads, stress, landing gear, and environmental controls. Completed a verification and a requirements maturity model (VMM and RMM), compiled a comprehensive set of lessons learned for a systemic issue dealing with moisture control across several derivative models of Boeing airplanes that were used in a design document with recommended corrective action scenarios. Closed dozens of problem reports that had been open almost 12 months by acting as a technical liaison between Airplane Level Integration Teams and Systems Engineering.  Developed end-to-end architectural design of the AEW&C aircraft and ground segments. This design was used to support an exercise in Darwin, Australia that was an integral part of the verification and validation of operational and mission capabilities for the AEW&C program for the Commonwealth of Australia. This design was used to link ground support segments with the aircraft and airborne mission systems. The architecture provided the Australian customer a well-defined view of the functionality between segment interfaces that was previously ill-defined or completely undefined. Provided support to technical proposal for United Arab Emirates (UAE): Wrote the Statement of Work for AEW&C product line development specific to UAE Developed risk mitigation plan for all proposal and contract risks
  2. 2. OrbComm Generation 2 System (OG-2) - (Commercial Satellite) Argon ST (a wholly owned subsidiary of Boeing) in San Diego, CA (Built the spacecraft payload)  Argon had very little experience in satellite development and needed help across many technical domains. I helped develop a software test team to verify every aspect of the satellite life cycle including command and control, link analysis, RF and T0 communication paths, state of health, payload to bus bi-directional communications, and launch and early orbit testing. Boeing Support to Sierra Nevada Corp (SNC) in Louisville, CO (Built the spacecraft bus)  When SNC was ready to mate the payload to their bus I was sent to serve as the on-site technical representative to provide support for payload to bus, hardware, and software integration at their facility. A-160 Hummingbird Helicopter- (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)  Support ground and flight testing in Victorville, CA to develop airworthiness certification criteria for FAA and Military. Developed requirements for aircraft flight and ground station controls to accommodate multiple mission scenarios in theater. Family of Advanced Beyond Line of Sight Terminals (Fab-T) (Ground System) Developed and maintained the program analysis plan. This CDRL document included the waveform link budgets for G/T, equivalent isotropically radiated power (EIRP), implementation losses, antenna tracking accuracies, oscillator stabilities, uplink and downlink acquisition capabilities, processor, bus, and memory utilizations, reliability MTBCF, fault isolation and fault detection. GPS-III Space Segment Risk Reduction and Proposal Preparation  Responsible for the space to ground interfaces and the development of the interface control documents that captured the technical details of the interfaces. Supported the development of the link budget designs for Space – Ground Link System (SGLS) and Unified S - Band (USB) RF uplink and downlinks and UHF and digital directional cross links for the current GPS Operational Control Segment (OCS) and the next generation advanced ground antenna (OCX) ground system architectures. RF and Optical Communications Systems Engineer (Proprietary)  Led a small Integrated Product Team (IPT) responsible for the design and implementation of an RF and terrestrial communications architecture that was seamlessly integrated into a large systems level design. This design had very stringent requirements for bit error rates, latencies, side lobes, and polarizations without impeding the ability to operate over a wide range of data rates and frequencies with a small aperture and very low RF output power. Network Architect and Planner (Qwest Gov’t Systems) (Proprietary)  Technologist charged with evaluation, design, and implementation of a wide area network solution for U.S. Government customers. This network included two OC-192 three-ring SONET architectures. The design effort included the engineering of equipment, fiber, and related distribution equipment.
