Accolades and Service
Accolade: L.J. Nickisch, Sergey Fridman, Mark Hausman, and Greg Bullock are a part of the team that won this year’s AFRL Joint Capability Technology Demonstration – the “JCTD of the Year Award”
Their award-winning JCTD is built around NWRA-Monterey software products for modeling the ionosphere and simulating the performance of high-frequency radar systems.
Jonah Colman, the AFRL Program Lead for their JCTD commented, “The award is a pretty big deal for any program, especially so for a space environment related project. Really it’s unprecedented.” In connection with this award, the Office of the Secretary of Defense has provided $10M for continued scientific work over the next two years.
Congratulations L.J., Sergey, Mark and Greg!
