When I was a Principal Engineer for Rockwell Collins, I wrote major parts of the train control system for Amtrak while working in Wilmington, Delaware. This is a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system that controls all train movement and power distribution for the northeast corridor (NEC) using Java, C, C++ and 80x86 assembly language.

I am the architect of the code behind US patent number 8281004 - Multi-threaded method and system for automated remote submission of jobs to mainframe and unix systems from the Windows™ platform.
