Corporate leadership, senior program managers and engineers from Boeing’s famed Phantom Works and Integrated and Advanced Defense Systems divisions, including more than a dozen NPS alumni now in top positions with the defense contractor, hosted the Boeing Technology Exposition and Exchange at the Naval Postgraduate School, Aug. 7. The purpose of the expo, on the theme “Transitioning Technology into Capabilities for the Warfighter,” was to share the company’s advanced technology, operations and best practices with NPS students and faculty, identify new areas of collaboration aligned with the NPS-Boeing Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, and build relationships with DoD’s future acquisition leaders. At the Expo, five NPS alumni now with the company joined forces to hoist a Boeing “Scan Eagle” tactical warfighting support UAV, left to right: Paul Bloch (Operations Research, 1973), now with Boeing’s modeling and simulations requirements; Dave Manser (Space Systems Engineering, 1993), now program manager for Boeing’s Lab Net; Matthew Finlon (Operations Research, 1991), now manager for Boeing’s platform effectiveness and survivability; John Hearing (Space Systems Operations, 1991), now manager of tactical unmanned aircraft systems; and Chuck Marashian (Administrative Science, 1982), now with Boeing’s advanced Navy command and control systems. Bloch was Hearing’s thesis adviser while both were at NPS. (Released)

An underwater robot pod, part of the Adaptive Sampling and Prediction network, is launched off the deck of a research vessel into Monterey Bay. This cold-water upwelling, oceanographic research was developed with the help of NPS’ Graduate School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and headed by a team of multidisciplinary investigators. The departing dean of GSEAS, Dr. James Kays, understood the importance of each department’s role in the development of the nation’s defense and established interdisciplinary focus areas to help articulate its strengths to the Navy.

Naval Postgraduate School student Lt. Daniel Tyler (far right) celebrates the victory of his team’s robot, “Spike,” as it successfully attacks a fellow classmate’s robot, “Tri-bot,” at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department’s Controls and Robotics Laboratory May 13. The mission-tasked autonomous competing robots were built by students in the Systems Engineering Systems Suitability course (SE 3302) who analyzed the reliability, maintainability and availability of the robots and studied their suitability for completing a mission.
