Working from informal guidelines designed and produced software to simulate
sub-sea telemetry devices for an off-shore oil rig control system. The software
ran on a PDP-11 and communicated in real-time with the host control system.
Undertook testing of the product at program and system level.
Designed and produced enhancements to the simulation software from the previous
contract with GEC Avionics. Designed and coded a control system for use in
testing sub-sea equipment, which performed backup system operation and enabled
a controlled system close down in cases of major system failure. Also wrote a
communications monitoring package, produced and ran test scripts for factory
acceptance tests, and undertook program and system level testing of all these
