Confidential - Eagan, MN

Software & Test Engineer


  • Worked a case file for Confidential ’s MicroEarts system software, an en route automated tracking system in place at smaller FAA Air Traffic Control centers. Provided the design for an enhancement to MDN, MicroEarts’ Java-based database generation program used in the maintenance of the site adaptation file, a large text file with data that can be adjusted per airport. Redesigned MDN to draw a new ADS-B-based map from data in this file and to allow the operator to create this new map via keyboard entry.
  • Tracked software bugs and performed maintenance fixes of Confidential ’s MicroEarts system software. Work includes fixing display software to enable multiple Radar Suppression Maps to be displayed at a remote display, enabling MDN to display an ADS-B map so its vertices are made up of the four corners of the system plane, and fixing MDN to continue functioning when attempting to create a polygon representing an airport terminal when there are no terminal polygons defined for that airport in the site adaptation file (an illegal function).
  • Tracked software bugs and performed maintenance fixes of Confidential ’s Common Arts system software in place at larger FAA Air Traffic Control centers. Modified Replay, a system function designed to play back recorded air traffic data at a terminal display so that system resets are properly displayed. Fixed the Continuous Data Recording function (CDR) on an RGW (a backup processor) to properly scratch all data on a full or offline disk.
  • Created design and test documentation for submission to FAA for all maintenance fixes. Performed unit-level solution testing using multi-generational FAA TRACON hardware.
  • Performed specific FAA-directed tasks, to include updating and enhancing the FAA’s procedure for transitioning a TAMR site from one software build to another using only Confidential ’s Software Downloader.
  • Performed peer-level design and development reviews and unit testing of peer test plans.
  • Use of C, Java, Eclipse, and Linux.

  • Modified several claims processing modules written in C/Pro*C to correctly process mass adjustment claims with respect to Medicaid recipient and provider eligibility.
