THOMAS W. McGARITY

PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYMENT:

 

PROJECT LEADER AND TECHNOLOGY ANALYST (May 1981 - January 1998)

Major duties: Directing Engineering Studies and evaluations of very complex electronic systems and subsystems (to the component level).

Project Leader for Projects GEODE & ORLON BRIGHT, major hardware projects with the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC).

Project Leader for Project WATCHDOG, a major classified effort with a division of the U.S. Department of Justice; CLUSTER SYRUP and CLUSTER MIMIC, two Navy Intelligence engineering projects.

Technical Lead for Projects Lectern, Pinon, Paragon, Cape, Cassia, Aspen, Maple and others.

PROGRAM LIAISON:

Responsible for interfacing with high-level government officials (GS 14-16, SES 2-3), and major industrial contractors regarding ongoing projects. Part of the interaction with industrial contractors was an effort to establish Industrial Partnerships with the Laboratory. In this capacity, I successfully negotiated a Proprietary Information Agreement (PIA) with Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Space and ASW Divisions, Baltimore, MD.

Represented the Laboratory, the Department of Energy and a major government intelligence agency to the QIT Conference, Canberra, Australia, April 94. I participated in the presentation of a paper I coauthored with another staff member.

TEST SITE COORDINATOR: (1995 — 1997)

Coordinated all Test Activity on the Nevada Test Site (NTS), located approximately 65 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada. Since the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty of 1994, there has been no underground testing of nuclear weapons. In order to understand the dynamics of aging weapons, a program of non-nuclear testing was developed. I coordinated the test activities for this program. That included all site security, as well as site activity during the tests. I also re-wrote the Test Site Manual for Hazardous Materials Handling and NTS Security. I was the MC&A Manager for the Joint Testing Operations (JTO), Nevada Test Site for the period of time I was there.

CONSULTANT/VISITING SCIENTIST: Upon retirement I was requested to continue work on a follow-up for Project Geode. This effort was to edit and to include new information that was available through classified channels to the existing report.

POSITION: SENIOR ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGIST (May 1979 -May 1981): Maintain, operate and repair highly sophisticated PAM and PCM telemetry systems.

Troubleshooting was to the component level. Other responsibilities included classified document custodian. Because of classification, the types and description of specific projects and responsibilities is not possible.
