Two Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific staff, and a NIWC Atlantic group, had been introduced with prime scientists and engineers of the yr awards in a ceremony June 25 at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division.

The Assistant Secretary of the Navy (ASN) Research, Development, and Acquisition (RD&A) Dr. Delores M. Etter Top Scientists and Engineers of the Year Awards acknowledge scientists and engineers who’ve made vital contributions instantly recognizable by the analysis, improvement, acquisition, take a look at and analysis neighborhood, in addition to senior management throughout the Department of the Navy.

Dr. Jamie Lukos, a scientist in NIWC Pacific’s cyber/science and know-how division, was awarded Emerging Scientist for her success within the human-machine teaming and neuroscience area and has led a number of analysis efforts.

Lukos’ contributions embody growing novel huge information algorithms to evaluate excessive-density, dynamic cortical alerts, constructing the subsequent era of fieldable neuro-applied sciences. Her efforts are advancing the sphere of human sensing for future human-machine teaming applied sciences as they apply to Naval programs.

Dr. Jia-Chi Samuel Chieh, an engineer in NIWC Pacific’s communications and networks division, has offered warfighters with new communication applied sciences by inventing steerable antenna array topologies, that are interrelated preparations of constituent elements. He serves because the technical warrant holder for line-of-sight communications.

Chieh obtain a number of patent awards for his innovations that enabled strong-state amplifiers to mix energy ranges beforehand restricted to hoover tube know-how. He additionally led analysis initiatives that developed new topologies for phased array antennas to entry low-earth orbit satellites and to make use of the widespread information hyperlink waveform. In addition to creating these new capabilities, Chieh developed excessive-frequency antennas and programs for the fleet’s present and rising ships, equipping warfighters with resilient communications.

“Commanding Officer Capt. Andrew Gainer and I are extremely proud of these accomplishments and the many efforts of Dr. Lukos, Dr. Chieh, and their teams, who have worked hard to deliver the best there is in warfighter capability and readiness,” stated NIWC Pacific Executive Director Bill Bonwit.

NIWC Atlantic’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) Team gained within the group class for establishing a mannequin-primarily based, digital engineering functionality for NIWC Atlantic’s shore info warfare (IW) platforms.

BIM creates a unified, holistic, digital mannequin of the bodily command, management, communications, computer systems, fight programs, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR) setting that’s straight built-in into the services mannequin for any shore info warfare (IW) platform. Using BIM within the design, engineering, and planning of an set up permits for a functionality to be delivered extra quickly and at decrease prices.

“The NIWC Atlantic Building Information Modeling team has transformed the way ashore C5ISR environments are designed and installed,” stated NIWC Atlantic Executive Director Peter C. Reddy. “Starting with a vision for more comprehensive system of systems engineering design, this team assembled, trained, and achieved a significant step forward in ashore IW design rigor. Commanding Officer Captain Wesley Sanders and I are very proud of their incredible work – they are extremely deserving of this prestigious award.”

Since November of 2018, BIM has been used on greater than 20 multimillion greenback initiatives throughout the Naval and DoD enterprise and is being integrated in all future Command and Operations Center Division taskings.

During the primary quarter of Fiscal Year 2020, the BIM group realized financial savings of $1M, accelerated one undertaking by 12 calendar months, and averted a 3 month delay on a undertaking by integrating BIM into their efforts. The group predicts lengthy-time period undertaking financial savings as much as 15% for each future effort adopting BIM methodology at inception.

“As the team shepherds designs through the construction and installation process, the opportunities for continued cost avoidance and increased efficiencies are tremendous,” stated Reddy. “The end benefit for the Navy and Marine Corps is better capability delivered faster, with less rework and at a significantly lower overall cost.”

NIWC Pacific’s mission is to conduct analysis, improvement, engineering, and assist of built-in command, management, communications, computer systems, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, cyber, and area programs throughout all warfighting domains, and to quickly prototype, conduct take a look at and analysis, and supply acquisition, set up, and in-service engineering assist.

NIWC Atlantic gives programs engineering and acquisition to ship info warfare capabilities to the naval, joint and nationwide warfighter by way of the acquisition, improvement, integration, manufacturing, take a look at, deployment and sustainment of interoperable command, management, communications, laptop, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, cyber and data know-how capabilities.
