Mars Exploration Rover Mission

I have been a member of the flight software team since the summer of 2000. My duties have included cognizance of the flight software module that implements the spacecraft portion of the telemetry dictionary, and support for flight software integration activities (i.e., making weekly flight software builds and loading them in the testbeds and on the vehicles). In support of mission operations, I am part of the data management team, and as such I am responsible for building commands to tell the spacecraft to retransmit data we didn't receive on the ground, and delete the data products we did receive, to keep the onboard flash memory available for more science data.
