Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division, Scientist,

I work at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Panama City Division (NSWC PCD). A large percentage of NSWC PCD’s work is focused on the development of sensors and unmanned vehicles to support mine countermeasures in the littorals. My team leverages advanced sensors towards alternative applications. Some of the best work that I do is surveying for unexploded ordnance and traveling to interesting locales using new sensors to visualize the seafloor in novel ways. I pull it all together in a way that makes sense to a layperson, adds value to the Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) community and ultimately benefits the warfighter by accelerating development of various advanced underwater sensors.

Join us for a live webinar presentation on "Cyber Survivability - Keeping Mission Systems Survivable in the Event of a Mission-Based Cyberattack."

Tuesday 30 April 2019 - 12:00 to 12:45 p.m. EDT

In the military environment, survivability is defined as the ability to remain mission capable after a single engagement.  In this seminar, we extend the traditional definition of survivability to introduce the concept of cyber survivability as a means to defend mission systems against cyberattacks.  Our aim is to start a dialogue around cyber survivability, detectability, susceptibility, vulnerability, and recoverability.
