IMAGE: DAHLGREN, Va. (Aug. 8, 2019) - Steering Committee members of the Navy's sixth annual Unmanned  Systems Integration Workshop and Technical Exchange Meeting are pictured at this year's event. Military and civilian unmanned, weapon, and energetic systems experts throughout the Naval Research and Development Establishment, Office of Secretary of Defense, and other services presented briefs and engaged in discussions on technologies and policies related to the strategies and challenges for test and evaluation of weaponized unmanned systems. 

Speakers and attendees networked while discussing partnerships, technology efforts, policy and demonstrated programs at the two-day event co-hosted by Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren Division, NSWC Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (IHEODTD), and the Unmanned Vehicle and Autonomous Systems Group at Naval Sea Systems Command. The workshop and technical exchange was sponsored by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (Tactical Warfare Systems Office and the Land Warfare and Munitions Office), the Joint Ground Robotics Enterprise and the NSWC Warfare Centers. 

The event’s Steering Committee members left to right: Reid McAllister, Integrated Unmanned Maritime Mobility Systems director at NSWC Carderock Division; Carrie Gonzalez, NSWCDD project manager; Penny Moran, NSWCDD Autonomy Lead; Amy O'Donnell, NSWC IHEODTD deputy technical director; Daniel Pines, NSWC IHEODTD chief innovation officer; Dr. John Wilkinson, NSWC IHEODTD customer advocate for Science and Technology Business Development; and Tony Harris, NSWCDD Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Branch head.

Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) institutionalized its Technical Excellence Framework to make a difference in the Fleet in terms of capability, quality, security and safety of warfare mission critical products – including system development and products supporting the Tomahawk land attack missile – the command announced, Aug. 13, 2019. Dahlgren’s Technical Excellence Framework - a set of project execution requirements, training, internal project reviews, technical excellence metrics and data-driven continuous improvement - applies to all NSWCDD technical programs and projects. Over the course of seven years, the command’s Chief Engineer Council worked to achieve their vision of institutionalizing technical excellence, rigor and discipline in order to meet the primary goal of consistently and efficiently developing safe, secure, reliable, maintainable, and high-quality products and systems.

IMAGE: KING GEORGE, Va. (July 30, 2019) – Navy engineer Page Wessel, left, briefs a local school teacher on the use of coding blocks to write a program for the Mindstorm EV3 robot at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) STEM Workshop for Educators at the University of Mary Washington Dahlgren campus. Wessel was among the NSWCDD scientists and engineers who joined university professors at the workshop to share best practices and ideas for project based learning in STEM with elementary, middle, and high school educators. The forum featured briefings and demonstrations while the educators participated in hands-on activities that they could pass on to other teachers and students at their respective schools. The activities included, “Straw Rockets and Mini-Railgun”, “Ozobots and Littlebits Engineering”, and “EV3 LEGO Robotics”.
IMAGE: KING GEORGE, Va. (July 30, 2019) – Navy human factors engineer Chelsey Lawson, middle, is pictured with her former high school teachers at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) STEM Workshop for Educators at the University of Mary Washington Dahlgren campus. Lawson was among the NSWCDD scientists and engineers who joined university professors at the workshop to share best practices and ideas for project based learning in STEM with elementary, middle, and high school educators. Standing left to right at the workshop is Jeremy Webb from Spotsylvania High School; Lawson; and Jim McNamee from Commonwealth Governor’s School.  “Mr. Webb was my drafting teacher and Mr. McNamee was my math teacher for three years,” said Lawson. “They were both very encouraging and influential not only in my high school education but also in choosing to be an engineer because they made STEM subjects interesting.”

IMAGE: DAHLGREN, Va. (Aug. 8, 2019) - The CIAT – Combined Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Trainer – team is pictured at Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren Division headquarters. The team worked with NSWC Carderock Division to develop a technical approach that originated during the early stages of CIAT’s combat system virtualization and technology exploration. NSWC Dahlgren Division is the lead integrator and the IAMD developer for CIAT. NSWC Carderock Division is the ASW developer and Naval Undersea Warfare Center Newport Division is the ASW components developer. The three divisions delivered CIAT to the Fleet shore based facilities in 2018 as the most capable combat systems trainer ever developed for the Navy surface force.
