JAGOW DATA SYSTEMS - Chesapeake, Va., Software Engineer
Contracted by Sabtech Industries to develop a new graphical user interface software package for their NTDS Interface Analyzer test equipment. The new Analyzer software was developed for use in a standard Microsoft Windows environment and provided many enhancements and refinements to the previous MS-DOS based version of software. I also developed a complete user's guide for the new Analyzer software.
Also responsible for the development of the "AMUYK" software package, a software & hardware replacement that would save the US Navy over $110,00.00 per mainframe installation. This unique software interfaced a 68030 microprocessor based PC to the AN/UYK-43 militarized mainframe computer. The "AMUYK" software executing in the PC presented an accurate scale graphic representation of the mainframe's display control panel. The graphic display could then be manipulated by mouse which causes the corresponding operation to occur within the host mainframe, thus a complete remote control program for the mainframe computer.
