Navy Junior Engineer Wins HSI Award for Impact on New Wearable Technologies
June 8, 2020
DAHLGREN, Va. — Virginia Commonwealth University student Alex Kniffin presents his research on “Wide-Aperture Forecasting” to military and government personnel during her 2016 summer internship. Kniffin - among 22 students who completed their internships at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) - is working towards a bachelor’s degree in computer science. Kniffen developed a framework for creating alternative scenarios in order to create a prediction on the advancements of technology and reduce technological surprise. “This allowed him to work with technical experts to incorporate their knowledge into the technological forecasting process,” said Dr. Elizabeth Haro, Human Systems Integration engineer. The Naval Research Enterprise Intern Program (NREIP) encourages students to pursue science and engineering careers, furthers education via mentoring and their participation in research, and makes them aware of Navy research and technology efforts, which can lead to civilian employment within the Navy.

A Small Business Administration final rule to implement the 2018 Small Business Runway Extension Act effective on Jan. 6, 2020 is good news for Dahlgren, according to Parker. The law increased the period of measuring small businesses’ annual revenue from three to five years in the contract evaluation process. “This change to five years is a logical move, as it helps account for the cyclical nature of contract awards,” he said. “It should really help increase our potential small business base.”  (U.S. Navy photo/Released)
