During the GRAIL mission’s science phase, spacecraft (Ebb and Flow) transmit radio signals precisely defining the distance between them as they […]
Work for DP DJ Stands primarily involved crafting sheet metal patterns, to form an interlocking system which required no fasteners for assembly. Conceptual work included a tension design, which would stabilize upon loading.
I am very pleased to have heard the news that the guys at http://dpdjstands.com/ have gone live with their product line. Wishing them the very best of success as they enter the market!
I couldn’t avoid the apocalypse, and once again found myself helping the design in another set for this years Wasteland Weekend, stepping out of the lab and into more ‘down and dirty’ structural work. This year, I found myself assisting and advising on the construction of the events bar. Last year, it was a casualty […]
Not every project undertaken involves the luxury of a controlled laboratory and pristine working conditions. The 2011 Wasteland project involved the creation of the main gate, a massive structural set of rusted metal and tires, which had to be sound enough to stand up to the winds, as well as sturdy enough to allow people […]
Mecha Engineering has supported numerous project involving fiber optic applications. From dealing with applications involving the manipulation and splicing of individual fibers, to the design and fabrication of fiber optic connector shells in the TFOCA family, we have provided consistent support contributing to the success of multiple projects. Applicable skills on these projects: Design, assembly […]
My work on the Grail Lunar Surveyor sent me traveling to Ithaca New York to work with Goodrich ISR on its completion of the RWAs (Reaction Wheel Assemblies). The work was an exercise in orchestration under pressure, as a launch window was approaching quickly. My role had me involved in many phases of the project, […]
This task for Maury Microwave started out relatively small, with the request for a design change of their existing tuner. The project quickly expanded to a full redesign, involving better actuators using closed loop stepper motors, introduction of linear drives and a structural redesign to reduce assembly tolerance stackup. Tasks included: Design & detailing for […]
One of my past projects involved overcoming some technical and delivery timeline issues to make the launch date. A lot of work, but it was worth it: (South pole of the far side of the moon as seen from the GRAIL mission’s Ebb spacecraft.
