principal investigators identified challenges, objectives, accomplishments and future benefits while answering questions and briefing the ILIR and IAR projects they've been working on over the past year.
SimVentions has been awarded a $32M contract to provide cybersecurity engineering services to the Combat Direction Systems Activity, Dam Neck, Virginia (CDSADN) and to the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren, Virginia (NSWCDD
), specifically the Readiness & Training Systems Department (R Dept.) to support the Navys goal to ensure the sustainability of todays systems, which depends not only on protecting the computers and networks, but also on a proactive approach in engineering the design of physical systems with cybersecurity incorporated from the beginning of system development.
"We're very excited to be afforded an opportunity to work with NSWCDD
. We have done outstanding work at other warfare centers, and we expect to deliver the same high-quality services to NSWCDD
under the VRSS effort.
"Sailors testing NEO's expeditionary capability to patrol diverse littoral and riverine terrains employed the system in response to a series of realistic scenarios and engaged all threats successfully," said Nelson Mills, NEO technical manager at NSWCDD
. "The constant flow of ISR sent to the control station from the vehicles enabled effective integrated command and control remote responses to each and every unconventional attack, including those from small boats."
Tested recently at the NSWCDD
in a radiated pulsed power application, the compact remote digitizer (CRDAQ) met all of the requirements successfully.
Invented by NSWCDD
engineers Mike Pompeii and Kevin Machlinski, the technology used in the Ship ACADA--a portable chemical warfare (CW) agent detector used on U.S.
"The I-Lab is engaging our workforce and helping to retain talent through challenging collaborations, critical thinking opportunities, and rewarding problem solving for the warfighter," said NSWCDD
Technical Director John Fiore.
Brian Durant, NSWCDD
commanding officer as he welcomed the standing-room-only crowd, said, "This conference provides an excellent opportunity to learn and more importantly, to discuss operational challenges.
This contract is a follow-on contract for support that Anteon has been providing NSWCDD
Throughout the development phase, the Mission 22 team applied the NSWCDD
philosophy to "build a little, test a little, and learn a lot." As the team created the code at the modular level, it was tested before integration into the final system.
