1976 - Present Mr. Doyle has more than 25 years of experience in the theoretical analysis of dynamic systems including analysis and design of electrical and mechanical systems. For the past 25 years Mr. Doyle has been a consultant. Mr. Doyle's recent experience includes consulting on Digital TV Cable and Satellite units for TV/COM International. He is also involved in qualifying Nuclear Radiation Monitoring equipment for Sorrento Electronics, including software and hardware reliability studies. Other recent consulting tasks have included Safety Integrity Level and Hazard Analysis. In addition he has recently performed Structural Analysis and Thermal Analysis of Electronic circuits. Previous consulting work included program planning, test planning, and systems evaluation for Kennecott Exploration Inc. of San Diego, California. He was responsible for airlift testing and analysis and developed plans and analyzed several slurry hydraulic tests.
1973- 1976 Rohr Industries, San Diego, California. As a full time employee, Mr. Doyle was a Principal Investigator of the Surface Effect Ship project. He was responsible for the establishment of seaway induced random loads by means of extensive model testing in various test basins in the United States. All work was oriented towards statistical analysis and spectral correlation with computer simulations for the purpose of developing operating envelopes and predicting extreme values of expected loads.
Mr. Doyle was responsible for all phases of structural loads testing, including: planning, fixture and model design, simulation, conducting the tests, test data analysis and correlation.
1964 -1972 Aeronutronics, Ford Motor Company, Newport Beach, California. Activities at Aeronutronics included: (1) Responsibility for the flight dynamics of the Modular Weapon System; (2) Guidance, control, and auto pilot design and analysis of various missile systems; (3) Development of Navigation Laws and Target Tracking systems. These analyses were performed for various proposals and studies in the Advanced Development Operations Group.
Ongoing: Mr. Doyle has taught seminars and tutorials for the past 20 years. These are 2 and 3 day seminars and half day tutorials on System Safety Analysis, Thermal Analysis of Electronics and Electro-Mechanical Reliability. The most recent presentation was at Kyoto University (Japan) on 31 May 2003.
Mr. Doyle was President of the World organization; IEEE Reliability Society in 1995 and 1996. He was a major contributor to the recently released Reliability Handbook, published by McGraw Hill where he contributed three chapters on Mechanical Reliability. He recently wrote a chapter for the new SAE (G-11) reliability publication. He was the major editor for Marvin Roush's book on Probabilistic Risk Assessment. He rewrote the Reliability Chapter of the Electronics Engineering Handbook (the EE Bible) and contributed 30 new pages. This edition will be edited by Don Christensen and published by McGraw Hill in 2003.
He has performed Software Reliability Analysis and provides a reliability prediction at a specified confidence level for the Availability of the Software. Fault analysis includes: Fault prevention, Fault removal, Fault tolerance, and Fault/Failure forecasting. Also included are Maintenance policies, Reliability modeling and Availability modeling. Techniques used include: Exponential models (Jelinski-Moranda model, Nonhomogeneous Poisson Process, NHPP model, Schneidewind's model, Musa's model, Hyperexponential model), Weibull, Gamma and Exponential models including S-shaped reliability growth model, Infinite failure models (Duane's model, Geometric model and logarithmic Poisson), Bayesian models, and Life cycle models (Phase based and predicting software defects).
EXPERT WITNESS SUMMARY
1998 Rohr Industries, San Diego, California. Mr. Doyle testified for Rohr Industries at the Federal Appellant Court in Alexandria VA. He testified as an expert witness in vibration and acoustics for the Washington DC Metro rail car developed and built by Rohr Industries. His participation was with the trial lawyers in court in Alexandria for 1 month and testified for one complete day. Rohr Industries won the case.
1998 Microwave Specialty Corp. San Marcos, California. Mr. Doyle testified in front of an Arbitrator for 2 hours on the reliability of a microwave rotary joint. Preparation work included statistical analysis and correlation with actual data for the purpose of predicting operating limits. Microwave Specialty Corp. won the case.
