DAHLGREN, Va. - Dr. John Seel, former Software Senior Scientific and Technical Manager for the Strategic and Computing Systems Department at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD), took helm as NSWCDD Warfare Control and Integration Department head Jan. 4, 2021.
“Dr. Seel’s strong software and systems engineering background are a natural fit for the H Department portfolio,” NSWCDD Technical Director John Fiore and Commanding Officer Capt. Stephen ‘Casey’ Plew announced in an email, Nov. 12, 2020.
The reins were passed from Michael ‘Mike’ Till who held the position since March 2020. Till plans to retire at the end of January after 23 years of supporting the warfighter in various capacities at NSWCDD including leading the Gun Branch and NSWCDD acting technical director. Since the transition in November 2020, Till has been working with Fiore on reinvigorating the future vision for Dahlgren’s range and test and evaluation capabilities.
In an expression of appreciation for Till’s service, Fiore and Plew cited, “extensive contributions across the entirety of the Dahlgren portfolio, and a lasting impact across many of the technical departments.”
