He overseas all robotics and hardware manufacturing operations at the Manufacturing & Robotics Facilities (MRF), situated in the starship's Lower Province.

Simmons is a member of the miniature world's MMC, and he worked with Joey and Zakarov to design and manufacture a starship-wide electromagnetic generator system that helped shield the Ark from the Wolf Angels syndrome.

He overseas a small team of hardware engineers who, amongst their wide range of duties, help to keep the Centauri Princess' repairbot fleet continuously operational. In the second novel in the First Ark series, The True Price of Immortality, Simmons was tasked to modernize the Oort cruiser so that it could be used in the Ice World expedition.
