Recovering Software Intensive Projects: Jindalee over the Horizon Radar Network (JORN) and Joint strike Fighter Mission System (F-35 JSF)

With a successful career turning around troubled projects and extensive systems and software engineering experience particularly with large scale, mission critical, real time systems Jeff Morris will discuss his practical experience with recovering two projects of significant interest to Australia. The Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) Over-the-Horizon Radar Project and the F-35 Fifth Generation Joint Strike Fighter onboard mission systems software.

Drawing on his experience from these two large software development programs Jeff will discuss his assignments, observations, corrective actions and the changes implemented to return these projects to successful completion.

Note:  This webinar will be streamed from Pennsylvania to the Canberra auditorium.

 

The Speaker:  Jeff Morris

Jeff Morris started with Lockheed Martin in 1980 as a Radar technician. He was noted for his troubleshooting skills and soon was indoctrinated into the Systems Engineering organization as a requirements, analytics and design engineer in support of ever-increasingly complex systems.

Jeff was promoted to Vice President of Engineering, IS&GS in 2007 and led a team of over 5,000 engineers world wide in the development, execution and maintenance of complex, embedded, mission-critical platforms for US and foreign military and intelligence organizations. His team was noted for several, high-profile, successful US and foreign government missions.

In 2011 the Lockheed Martin Chief Operating Officer (COO) and the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) assigned Jeff as the Vice President, F-35 Mission Systems Software for the high priority F-35 fighter jet program following the Nunn-McCurdy breach. Jeff led a successful turn-around of the systems and software development efforts resulting in highly positive reaction from senior Lockheed Martin, Allied and US Government leaders.

In 2014 Jeff was assigned Vice President of IS&GS programs representative of nearly 600 contract unique programs spanning US and international customers, from design, development, operational and maintenance aspects.

He retired from Lockheed Martin in 2015 after 35 years of successful engineering, program management and customer-focused leadership. Jeff earned an AS in Electronics Technology from Eastern Maine Technical College, a BS in Industrial Technology from the University of Maine and worked on his MS in Software Engineering from the State University of Pennsylvania.
