WEST BETHESDA, Md. —
Brian Caine, TUBA Technical Program Manager at NSWC Carderock Division, was awarded the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Undersea Warfare 2018 Bronze Medal in September for his contributions to expanding the technology knowledge base of undersea warfare. He was also awarded the Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award for his leadership in the area of systems development, full-scale testing, sensor performance evaluations and acoustic calibration within the TUBA Program. The program supports the submarine fleet; builds acoustic systems that deploy with submarines; sustains and maintains capabilities in the field; and trains personnel on the process to use the acoustic sonar data-collection tools.
“In general, we’ve done a lot of good things over the last few years that have gotten a lot of visibility, filling a need quickly and successfully. Some of those projects highlighted our team’s ability to adapt, evolve and respond rapidly. Different teams have come to us and asked us to do things and we’ve been able to execute. This brought us more visibility. I was honored and humbled to be presented the award,” Caine said.
