At SpaceX I was the primary IT support for the Vandenberg launch site. With the help of assistant technicians and remote staff else where, my activities included mundane tasks like:

  • Fixing broken printers
  • Establishing network connectivity for satellites about to be launched
  • Identifying and delivering on all IT requirements for a launch campaign
  • Participate in launch operations before, during, and after a rocket launch
  • Development and execution of procedures designed to ensure the safety and success of launch operations
  • Network design, switch configuration, etc. for the Vandenberg site
  • Planning and implementation for bringing up new facilities
