Col. Smith stated about Lowell’s work: “Your assistance, technical expertise, and ability to go above and beyond to ensure success is very much appreciated. Your efforts earned our system a very favorable rating, built the framework for future inspections, and most importantly, provided my team with the tools the U.S. needs for pace superiority.”
Congratulations, Lowell, for your continued excellent work!
A huge thank you to Andrew Kennedy, Tim Ungacta, Alessandro Agenello, and Jeff Yaeger for going above and beyond in their support to Robert Cognetti‘s meeting and demonstration for the US Marine Corps.
Robert identified an opportunity to address a number of both near and long-term challenges USMC was having. The team was able to pull together a comprehensive demonstration of the recently approved FXD Tactical CDS capability that may result in USMC participation on the FXD program and our involvement in an upcoming JADC2 exercise. Thanks to all of you for your smart and hard work!
