FYI, for those who know me... I have been VERY deliquent in sending out this message. I do apologize. I now work for Raytheon at the Sudbury MA facililty on the Upgraded Early Warning Radar system (UEWR). It is one of the two ground-based radar systems of the NMD. It is a C++ development using UML and Rational Rose for the development process. I lead the development of the Activity Coordinator, that has the responsibility of elaborating and controlling the various Mission Application activities in the presence of mode changes and fault tolerance. C++ is more complex than Ada95 with no software reliability -- the worst of all worlds. The location information for me at Raytheon is: [log in to unmask] 978.440.1785 Thanks for all of you who provided me with information, tips, etc. in finding work. mike Mike Kamrad MA phone: 508.791.4655 MN phone: 952.432.6129 cell phone: 612.810.4219 PLEASE SEND MAIL TO ONLY [log in to unmask] THANKS.
