The Life And Times Of Bob

Bobs' Buddy

This is Chama Dog (CD for short). He is the worlds' greatest dog. He is a White German Shepard, with a smudge of coyote. When he first arrived, he was a scrawny, scared , tick infested little fur ball. I wasn't sure he'd survive the week. Since then, he has matured into a healthy, friendly, happy-go-lucky dynamo. By the way, he is also a real girl-gettin' dog (babe magnet). Chama the Dog

Bobs' Jobs

I am a Field Engineer for Honeywell Technology Solutions, Incorporated (HTSI)(formerly ATSC) currently working on a contract for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). HTSI installs, operates, and maintains the data acquisition systems that are used to record the effects of a high explosives blast. Check out the DTRA link for more on that. Most of our work is done at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) and the Nevada Test Site (NTS).

Previous to this job I had worked for ATSC in Flin Flon, Manitoba, Canada at a NATO experimental weather station. If not for the crazy Cannuks I worked with, hockey season, and Rocki the dog I might have lost more of my mind.

Before that I worked for, you guessed it, ATSC on a contract for the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS). On that job we were responsible for maintaining a world wide network of seismic monitoring stations. I was overseas 8 months or more out of the year going from one country to the next. It took me to just about every backwater, flea bitten, disease infested, anti-American, third and fourth world armpit of the globe. I miss it sometimes.

And before that, I was a Systems Repair Technician (99104) for the United States Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC). We were responsible for monitoring the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963 (and a couple of others). We did this utilizing sub-surface, surface, air, and space based instrumentation. Our motto was "In God We Trust, All Others We Monitor".
