Naval Postgraduate School undersea warfare student Lt. Tim Shivok checks the wire bonding machine he used for his award winning thesis research on tiny microphones that can detect the direction of a sound source based on how flies hear. The system uses gold thread to wire chips to packaging so researchers can derive acoustic data and generate frequency response curves. Shivok’s Summer 2007 classmate, submarine officer Lt. Noble Hetherington III, won the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Newport Award for Excellence in Undersea Warfare Technology for his work on special speakers that can generate an aimable underwater sound ‘spotlight.’ Both award-winning undersea warfare students got the same message loud and clear: If the key to success in real estate is location, location, location, the key to stealthy submarine communications and sub detection is direction, direction, direction.

The country is very fortunate to have this man chosen to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in just ten days.” Mullen quickly returned the accolades, lauding Oliver as a mentor and “one of the finest leaders I have known in the Navy. I can think of no one better to lead this institution at this critical time in our nation’s history.” (Released)
