I worked as an electronic engineering technician in Astro Space Division of Lockheed Martin. I was assigned to work in the Inmarsat-3 program. The assembly and testing of the satellite was at the Lockheed Martin facility in East Windsor, New Jersey. After testing, I was fortunate to be able to go to the launch location for final testing. I went to all three launch facilities—Cape Canaveral (Florida), Guiana Space Center (French Guiana) and Baikonur (Kazakhstan).
