At the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, SC we have 2500 government civilians with about 78% of them engineers or computer scientists. By establishing the Office of Research and Technology Applications, I was able to form strong relationships with many industry partners and to set up technology transition pathways from industry to DoD applications and from our engineers to commercial applications. Many of these relationships involved Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA) which set up the legal framework for the protection of intellectual property of both the government and the industry investigators. Through this position I was also able to reach out to the local business community and make numerous contacts on the ThinkTEC Advisory Council and the ThinkTEC Homeland Security Conference Task Force on the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce.

In 2003 I was selected to establish the position of Chief Technologist for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Intelligence and Information Warfare department. As the only CTO in the Charleston facility I also represented Charleston at the headquarters in San Diego as the command representative for a number of reorganization efforts. The primary competencies that I brought to the CTO position were the ability to perform active technology searches and to deliver emerging technologies for insertion into existing and future systems.

I also wrote many of the Statements of Work and the transition plans for these technology insertions.
