Aviation Group BadgeC5ISR group

The C5ISR Group has had a number of stand-out accomplishments. The U.S. Air Forces Europe (USAFE) Project Management Office (PMO) in Germany continues to deliver support to critical warfighter programs as our team comprised of Rick Mercer, Karleton Dempsey, James Bennett, Odis Solomon, Dana Capaldi, J Walton, Christina Bennett, and Tim Griffin laid the foundation for the roll-over of our contract to a new competitive vehicle by delivering exceptional work, day-in and day-out. Their Contracting Officer Representative (COR) couldn’t say enough good things about the team at a recent Program Management Review (PMR).

At Air Combat Command and Air Force Special Ops Command, our Fires team keeps the Automated Joint Terminal Attack Controller Academic Currency Tracking System (AJACTS) running and improving. William Morris and Robert Bonta single handedly completed a major system upgrade 30 days ahead of schedule dazzling their customer with their skill.

Finally, some of our Special Programs employees (Mike Petroskey, John Ricard, and Alistair Chase) distinguished themselves and the company by playing golf at a recent AFCEA tournament in New Hampshire in pretty tough conditions. Noted because all of their real work is classified and they, like the entire team, find multiple ways to make outstanding contributions.

Medical Group BadgeMedical Group

Odyssey employees Dr. Audra Stone and Becca Spooner were recognized for their outstanding contributions and performance supporting the Clinical Investigation Department (CID) at the Naval Medical Center, Portsmouth (NMCP) Virginia.

Becca SpoonerBecca Spooner has been recognized by CDR George Balazs, MD, USN, Chair of Orthopedic Surgery at the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP), VA for her many accomplishments as Clinical Research Coordinator at NMCP. CDR Balazs cites “Becca has been an integral part of the department since 2010… and single-handedly runs our entire department.” Becca manages multiple open protocols, and reviews and corrects all new submissions and closure reports. She assists in CID compliance visits and performs study consenting and follow-up visits. She assists with management of research funding, helps the department’s biomedical engineer, and helps department researchers with their queries. During her time at NMCP, all compliance site visits, and Institutional Review Board (IRB) research proposals have been approved and passed. Becca is an invaluable team member at Odyssey and NMCP, and we are extremely grateful for her support.

Becca Spooner also has received three Protocol Completion Awards from the Defense Health Agency (DHA) IRB at the NMCP for continuing to support the Command’s tradition of medical excellence and the Navy’s mission of scientific innovation.

Dr. Audra StoneOdyssey Employee, Dr. Audra Stone supporting the Clinical Investigations Program (CIP) at the NMCP was recognized by both the government and Odyssey at the yearly Contractor Researcher Personnel (CSPR) Appreciation Brunch on June 7th at the NMCP Pavilion.

This is a government event that recognizes 2/3rds of contractors who specifically made significant impacts to the command. As the CID Protocol Developer, Dr. Stone assists researchers with all facets of their project submission including project design, conducting literature reviews, and addressing IRB requirements. She individualizes her guidance to ensure a positive, personalized experience and makes every effort to accommodate the busy schedules of her clinicians, often meeting with them outside of normal business hours. This year, Dr. Stone implemented a researcher networking initiative to establish more multi-disciplinary projects. While navigating the ever-changing research regulations can be a challenge for researchers, Dr. Stone is adept at knowing which requirements apply to specific projects so that she can assist in designing a research protocol with scientific rigor while adhering to regulatory guidance. As a result, those who seek her assistance complete the protocol review process in half the usual time. Dr. Stone’s expertise in protocol design ensures maximum feasibility within the research team’s time constraints while ensuring project completion and ultimately publication. Most importantly, she ensures researchers have a great experience while educating them throughout the process. Her phenomenal contributions in support of NMCP’s graduate medical education programs will certainly have a long-lasting impact on the military research community.

Midrelle NoumbissiA central figure within Odyssey’s Diarrheal Disease Research (DDR) group is Midrelle Noumbissi. As the Scientific Lab Manager for the program, her logistical skills and attention to detail have been key to Odyssey’s efforts supporting the program’s mission of developing vaccines and therapeutics against enteric pathogens. Odyssey was pleased to recognize these significant efforts with a May 2023 Spot Award.

Sajjan CordyMr. Sajjan Cordy, Sr. Biomedical Equipment Technician, has been recognized by the Medical Inspector General, Captain Trent L. Outhouse during an inspection of the Naval Health Research Center. Specifically, Captain Outhouse noted Mr. Cordy’s exceptional professional expertise, pursuit of program excellence and positive impact on the Command’s inspection results.

Caitlin Urick and Kevin BurkeAs part of the Bacteriophage Therapeutics team within the WRAIR Wound Infection Department (WID), Caitlin Urick, Kevin Burke, and Nino Mzhavia (not pictured) made key contributions to the development, preparation and testing of a custom-made Bacteriophage cocktail used to successfully treat a life-threatening, multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in a patient at the Tripler Army Medical Center.

SMD Group BadgeSpace & Missile Defense Group

Congratulations to the entire Data Processor/Signal Processor (DP/SP) Team! On 13 July, Thule Upgraded Early Warning Radars (UEWR) Gen II successfully completed trial period and achieved Final Operational Acceptance. This site was the last of five UEWRs to receive the Gen II upgrades. Odyssey is thrilled to be a part of this historical milestone. Way to go Team!

Congratulations to the entire Gen2 / Data Processor / Signal Processor (DP/SP) Team! Special thanks to Program Manager (PM), Kenn Henderson, who for the past 11 years, acted as the PM to address obsolescence of the DP/SP computers of all the Early Warning Radars (EWRs). Under his guidance, the Team was instrumental in building out the roadmap, addressing engineering integration challenges, and defining a supportability relationship for long-term success. Ultimately, their endeavors ensured all sites were upgraded thereby adding missile defense capability for all the EWR sites and operational acceptance. The Team provided Courses of Action (COAs) that were utilized by the the Commander, USSPACECOM and the Secretary of Defense, which minimized real world impacts while driving trial period activity. The Team’s tenacity culminated on 13 July when the Thule UEWR Gen II successfully completed the trial period meeting all exit criteria with no deficiencies and the 12th Space Warning Squadron was approved to exit trial period. The trial period exit resulted in achieving Final Operational Acceptance. This final upgrade was a huge historical milestone as the last of five Upgraded Early Warning Radars closed the chapter of the Gen 2 upgrades. Way to go team members Kenn Henderson, Mike McCleish, Glen Walley, Al Shanahan, and Dimitri Makris.
