Sly Fox Mission 21
December 13, 2017
IMAGE: DAHLGREN, Va. (Dec. 11, 2017) - Four members of the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) Sly Fox Mission 21 team - Charles Miller, Troy Newhart, Joshua Taylor, and Jessica Hildebrand - hold the Sly Fox Awards they received from NSWCDD Commanding Officer Capt. Godfrey 'Gus' Weekes and NSWCDD Technical Director John Fiore at the command's leadership meeting. They were among seven members of Sly Fox Mission 21 recognized for developing the SCAPEGOAT chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) detection system. The team demonstrated a new capability to deploy the modular CBR sensor system aboard multiple unmanned aerial vehicle platforms in a demonstration held last June on the Potomac River Test Range. SCAPEGOAT was designed, prototyped, and tested over a six-month period as the team engaged in the command's Sly Fox Program. With its relatively low cost and modular interfaces, the SCAPEGOAT system demonstrates the use of emerging technology in meeting warfighter needs. The Sly Fox program is an NSWCDD Naval Innovative Science and Engineering (section 219) funded rapid prototyping program intended to develop the science and engineering workforce, mostly junior scientists and engineers, while applying their talents to known technology gaps. Like the previous 20 missions - including efforts in directed energy, radar systems, unmanned systems, and cyber threats - Sly Fox Mission 21 took advantage of the diverse skills of its team members to tackle a mission that is important to NSWCDD, its customers, and the warfighters.
