It was a productive and fun place to work
QA/AS9100 - Manager (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – November 6, 2015
The majority of my work tenure comes from Teledyne who was later bought out by Litton and then Northrop Grumman. My work experience comes from being a component and reliability engineer with Teledyne Controls and Teledyne Systems. Then later on with Teledyne Micro Electronics and Teledyne Safety Products where a transition was made from Reliability to Quality Assurance. Over the course of my engineering career, I had some great experiences working on several military programs that fell under the guidelines of the AS9100 quality management system. For example, at Teledyne Systems I was the Reliability Engineer on the Mission Computer for the Northrup Grumman TASSAM Missile program. While at Litton Guidance and Control all reliability engineering for the Tomahawk Baseline Improvement Program (TBIP) and the guidance system for MSLS was under my work responsibility. While at Teledyne Micro Electronics my reliability/quality engineering responsibilities were directed towards the F22 and Kodak Government Satellite programs. At Teledyne Safety products, I was the QA Manager for the F22 ejection seat program.
Had fun and was able to work on many high reliability government programs.
No real cons except for when the F22 program was cancelled.
