METECS recognizes Bob Culpepper for 5 years of outstanding service in METECS business development.  Thanks Bob!


Today we would like to welcome our newest METECS team member, Shawn Delahunty.  Shawn returns to the NASA JSC community, having worked for a brief time in the Trick lab for L-3 Communications on the Constellation project.  He comes to us with a diverse military and civilian background, which includes over 25 years of experience writing software for a huge variety of platforms.  He studied Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh before going on to serve in the US Air Force; first as a Munitions/Explosives Technician (if you see him running, try to keep up) and then as a radar/missile-silo Electronics and Comms Technician.  He specialized in aircraft missile- and precision-targeting systems, high-frequency radio, and voice/data/power systems, earning two A.S. degrees and the John L. Levitow Leadership Award in the process.  Since leaving the military in 1998, Shawn has worked in multiple industries in various managerial and technical positions.  He created and managed an Engineering QA test section for an ATM manufacturer, worked as a Lead and Senior Software Engineer at several companies, and took on the role of Project Architect at an engineering consultancy.   During this time, he wrote firmware, OS drivers, custom applications/servers, and technical/support documentation across multiple industries.  Shawn has also done board-level electronics design using small microcontrollers for control sub-systems, and FPGA design for high-speed data transfer.  Welcome aboard Shawn!
