ATLANTIC OCEAN (June 2, 2014) - A Trident II D-5 ballistic missile launches from the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine USS West Virginia (SSBN 736) during a missile test at the Atlantic Missile Range. Two years later – on June 2, 2016 – Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) Director Vice Adm. Terry Benedict presented the SSP Director's Award to Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) senior scientist Kim Payne for leadership impacting the Fleet Ballistic Missile Program. Payne was honored for her expertise in fire control software and targeting models as well as quality assurance methodology enhancements to improve Fleet Ballistic Missile deployed software product effectiveness and efficiency. Benedict said her efforts, “directly contributed to the Fleet Ballistic Missile Program and successful SSGN (Ohio-class guided-missile submarine) conversion software initiatives.”  (U.S. Navy photo/Released)

U.S. Marine Corps Amphibious Assault Vehicles, assigned to the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, come ashore at Fog Bay, Australia, during exercise Talisman Sabre. The Navy engineers developing a new Extreme Power Internal Combustion (EPIC) engine to transform Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) capabilities were recognized for their EPIC innovation in the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) annual awards program, May 18. EPIC is designed to increase power and reduce weight to achieve high water speed for future Marine Corps ACVs.  The engine's fuel efficiency can also support long term ACV ground operations. EPIC inventor, Greg Buchanan, and developer, Vincent Vendetti, were among a team of engineers winning the Naval Sea System Command 2016 Commander's Innovation Award for the innovation. "An amphibious combat vehicle featuring the efficient, high-power EPIC engine would meet all challenges and outmaneuver future rivals to truly transform amphibious assault missions," said Vendetti.

NSWC Corona is the Navy's only independent analysis and assessment center, with more than 1,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff, and more than 800 contractors.

NSWC Corona is home to three premier national laboratory and assessment centers: the Joint Warfare Assessment Lab; the Measurement Science and Technology Lab; and the Daugherty Memorial Assessment Center. Along with the renowned "Corona Engineers," these state-of-the-art facilities enable Corona to fulfill its unique mission for the Navy. The JWAL and DMAC are at the core of Corona's integrated approach to warfare assessment, and the Measurement Science and Technology Lab is where Corona researches and establishes the metrology and calibration standards and procedures for the Navy and Marine Corps.

Using a rigorous, disciplined independent assessment process, Corona provides the fleet, program managers and acquisition community with the objective assessment needed for the Navy to gauge warfighting capability of ships and aircraft, assess warfare training and analyze new defense systems - even those systems in the concept phase. This commitment to independent assessment allows the Navy to achieve the greatest value for acquisition, material readiness and lifecycle management programs - for Today's Navy, the Next Navy, and the Navy After Next. As the Navy's metrology and calibration authority, Corona also sets the measurement science and calibration standards to support proper weapons operation, interoperability and peak readiness for the fleet. Corona uses innovation and automation to also reduce burdensome workload for Sailors, while reducing maintenance costs and increasing readiness for the Navy.
