    Summary of Past Accomplishments
  • Conceived and architected a sensor data product generation subsystem for the GOES-R program that exceeded stringent performance requirements using commodity blade servers and GB Ethernet

Additionally, developed corrections to make the level 2+ products open, standards-based and self-describing using the CF Metadata Conventions. Furthermore, wrote the 2000 page GOES-R product users’ guide
