Developed MIL-STD 188-256 for digital signaling and supervision in tactical communications systems. This involved reviewing existing Joint Tactical Communications (TRI-TAC) Office specifications, communications systems specifications, and communications procedures to determine areas to be included in the MIL-STD and appropriate performance criteria to be required of tactical communication systems in the area of digital signaling and supervision.

Developed the U.S. Army standard and the protocol specification for Digital Variable Message Formats (VMF) for U.S. Army Center for System Engineering and Integration (CENSEI) while at BDM. He subsequently performed analysis of applications of VMF to TADIL A, TADIL B, TADIL C, TADIL J, SHORAD, and the PJH-CCS2 interfaces.

Participated in the development of several NATO Standardization Agreements (STANAGs). These STANAGs specified the data communications protocols for functions in Layers I, II, and III as delineated by the ISO OSI model.

Led a BDM team in the development of the Army Command and Control System (ACCS) Protocol Reference Model. This task utilized the ISO OSI seven-layer reference model as a baseline and made changes to that baseline to meet peculiar military requirements and to resolve inconsistencies in the OSI model. He also assisted in the development of interface specifications for the Army CCS2 control elements. These specifications covered the electrical, procedural, and format requirements for information transfer between two CCS2 control elements.
