I was a software developer contracted to Boeing.

  • Firmware loader updates in C++. Windows XP embedded system using a Web CGI application written in C++ to update the electronics on F15 jets. Added the additional functionality to support ARINC 615A data loading protocol, this required implementing a multithreading TFTP server in the CGI application. Also updated a load protocol using the NFS file system for transferring files.
  • Ancillary computer system software written in C#. Handler wrappers written in C# to control special instruments and hardware used for testing F18 avionics. Implemented a plug-in architecture to provide custom implementations. Commands received from RPC calls originating from test programs on VMS to control custom instruments and hardware. Hardware controlled included Cisco Switches, Geist PDU, VNA, and RFIU. Provided API’s to communicate over Ethernet, RS232 serial communications, and VISA (Virtual Instrument Software Architecture). Provided ability to reset hardware back to factory defaults and then reconfigure for actual use. This project used the SI2 system (below). With the custom protocols I also used SNMP and JSON for communicating with devices.
  • Remote Procedure Server written in C++. Provide a RPC system to allow communications between computer systems, primarily VMS and Windows. Created .Net and C libraries for Windows and C library for VMS. Implemented as multithreaded Windows service using TCP as communication between clients and service, also used TCP for communications between service and handlers. Allowed for multiple client controller applications to control multiple handlers.
C++, C#, TCP-IP, HTTP CGI, COM, JSON, SNMP, XML

FTR is a native Windows application which makes heavy use of COM using MFC and ATL. It is primarily written in C++ with some C# and Java components. I wrote the client side to record the user actions and talk to a web service for publishing files to server. Using network capture libraries I did network packet parsing, primarily HTTP traffic extracting timing information.

  • Record user interactions in a hosted Internet Explorer control from a MFC application.
