A smattering of lessons learned, sometimes over and over, and in some cases not completely learned, over forty-plus years in software and systems engineering and management. Involving customers such as the Air Force, Army, Navy, and commercial. Including weird, unattainable requirements, grammar potholes in RFPs, schedule SNAFUs, and lessons I failed to learn over and over again. With some proposal writing tips thrown in just for fun.

SPEAKER: Mr. Richard Bryson

Mr. Richard Bryson is a Systems Engineer Architect for Interoperability of Unmanned Air Systems at Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) in Rancho Bernardo, CA. He led the Global Hawk-related programs’ interoperability efforts for ten years and is now working on broader interoperability and system architecture efforts on the Common Mission Control Center program. Mr. Bryson has over thirty years of software engineering, systems engineering, and program and functional management experience from several companies including Hughes Aircraft, TRW, GDE (now BAE) Systems, SAIC, and NGC. That experience spans the development life cycle and includes aerospace avionics, communications, IMINT, MOVINT, and SIGINT processing, and a smattering of commercial communications jobs. He has also taught courses on software engineering and management at local universities as an adjunct professor.
