Consulting Engineer. Currently developing single display multi-window
and multi-display Direct Access
Electronic Trading Systems. The system uses COTs
Intel PC's with Linux. The Linux single and multi-display System's use organized
screen real-estate of 30,000 by 1200 pixels.
This provides a user with 10 to 20 times
the viewable information on current PC's and workstations. This allows for the
open tracking of multiple real time financial analysis programs.
The above systems are tested by performing live trading on a daily basis.
The goal is the development of an integrated suite of software tools to provide real time
trading information in highly organized and usable formats.
The second area of development is in the volume processing of digital images and the
automation of archiving the imagery in html or web pages.
Currently over 10000 high resolution photos are published and indexed in 500 hundred
plus web pages.
Ten intra networked computer systems via thin wire, 10 and 100 Base-T are maintained
These systems have broadband access the Internet via firewalled gateway.
This heterogeneous network includes computers running several
Linux distributions, Window 3.11, Windows 98, Windows Me and Windows NT.
Watman Associates||1998 to Present
Senior Systems Engineer, Advanced Programs Group. Cleared Secret.
Awarded the Northrup Grumman
1996 Performance Leadership Award.
This award was given for Mr. Watson's development of ATR processing programs and the
successful implementation of a multi competitor ATR algorithm computer facility in a
few month time frame.
Responsibilities included developing software and systems used for
Radar(SAR) development demonstration and certification.
The programs were used with the Norden systems Multi Mode Radar System (MMRS) identified
as the APG-76.
Developed BIG SAR ATR program.
This program was developed to provide a portable demonstration of an advanced
Wide Area Tactical SAR RADAR
display program with integrated automatic target recognition.
Developed IFSAR image rendering program.
This program was used in the creation of IFSAR data demonstration movie.
This program was also use as part of an ATP for a 32 head SGI onyx system.
Developed programs for systems integration an analysis of hippi and gigabit ethernet
communications between SGI Power Challenge and Origin 200 systems.
Developed integrated dual display Xwindow based custom Window Manager demonstration program executive(DPE).
The system was implemented on a SGI indy computer.
The DPE is in use today as Advanced Programs Group integrated marketing demonstration program.
The DPE included IFSAR 3D wide area flyby, Wide area SAR mapping with moving target indicator(MTI)
history, Sar stepped resolution, Medium and Ultra high resolution SAR with MTI.
Developed data analysis programs to extract and synchronized IQ radar, IMU and intra MMRS radar
Developed data extraction, integrity and analysis programs.
Pre SAR(presar) extracted complex IQ raw scan data with irig time stamp.
Presar had several adaptation parameters to deal with recorded data integrity and the identification
and realignment of data within a scan to deal with recorded data drop out errors.
Pre Calibration Ring Bus (pcalrb) program extracted operator selected APG-76 inter processor
ring bus calibration messages synchronized with IQ RADAR data scans.
Developed IQ Quality (iqqual) statistical analysis program with multiple plotting outputs in postscript or
Developed production data extraction programs and processes to automate the extraction of
multi gigabyte data sets for MMRS RADAR acceptance certification. The above tasks involved the writing
of C++, C and unix shell and DCL scripts for Dec Vax, Convex, Sun OS, Hp-ux and SGI computers.
The above process reduced end to end SAR data processing from 14 hours to 45 minutes.

This program was used maintain, upload and download a database of bolt load parameters for
the 13000 bolts used to clamp suspension cables.
Designed and developed the Hydraulic Ultra Sonic Bolting System(HUBS) control program.
The HUBS program was areal time embedded control program for controlling sequential bolting
of the joints of the solid rocket boosters of the NASA Space Transportation System.
The program maintained a database of the bolting process and provided complete calibration
of pressure and ultrasonic load measuring instrumentation. Designed and fabricated the
HUBS Electronic Emulation Simulator.
Developed Dynatree Graphic Compiler Program.
This programs compiles a system parts database in a script file.
The script file is interpreted by the Futurenet schematic editor to create an assembly family
The Dyantree program featured full parts database to drawing to database back annotation and
automated difference report generation.
The Dyantree program was implemented with user friendly popup help menus.
Consulting to Norden Systems:
Developed CAE wire running list from schematic wire diagrams. This program was used to track custom
wiring of the G2 MMRS flight test aircraft.
Consulting to Emhart Glass Machinery:
Provided master communication interface design to upgrade various glass inspection machines.
Designed Generation II Check detector (G2CD) embedded computer.
The G2CD is used to inspect glass bottles with optical processing.
The G2CD provided graphics displays of optical sensor data and provides an Arcnet link for remote
control and reporting of statistical quality control data.
Designed the G2CD master and slave micro control circuit boards.
