Army Corp of Engineer’s High Performance Computer Center after retiring from the MS Air National Guard. While there he was responsible for automation and digitizing all manuals, regulations, directives. This allowed Corp personnel to access this data from any site. This program saved the Center hundreds of thousands of dollars over proposals for lesser systems being offered by commercial industry. He also was responsible for the performance of the network and was asked to develop steps to improve performance. His recommendations increased the speed of the systems dramatically.
In the Mississippi Air National Guard, Mr. Boyette was an Internet Technology Manager over a wide area network supporting three units state wide and over information and telecommunication security. His role was to constantly monitor and inform command of any possible network threats inside or outside the network. During his tenure his network was never hacked.
Mr. Boyette worked in conjunction with USAF personnel to address threat scenarios during the units participation in the Air Force’s training exercises named Red Flag.
