  • DAHLGREN, Va. - Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) Commanding Officer Capt. Brian Durant presents the Dahlgren Award to NSWCDD Deputy Technical Director Dohn Burnett for 34 years of continuous service in March 2016. Burnett - who was also awarded the Navy Superior Civilian Service Medal at his retirement ceremony - considers leadership development as one of the top highlights of his civil service career. "Their (NSWCDD leaders at all levels) work is going to continue after the systems I helped develop are gone," said Burnett. "I made it a priority in my career to work on developing leaders and, in turn, they will develop leaders. That legacy will live on and Dahlgren will continue to do great work because it has good leaders."  160303-N-DE005-004
  • DAHLGREN, Va. - The Joint Infantry Company Prototype (JIC-P) solar panel is the topic of discussion between Marine Capt. Anthony Ripley and Eric South, Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division technical lead for JIC-P. While Marines are on break during a march, they can pull out the solar panels and recharge batteries. The system features bionic and solar power enabling Marines and Soldiers to patrol longer without resupply. The Business Intelligence Group (BIG) recently selected JIC-P for the 2016 BIG Innovation Award. BIG awardees are recognized for innovations that are making major impacts in today's world. Meanwhile, 3,000 business leaders selected the project as a "best of the best" finalist for the 2016 Edison Awards, a program that honors the most innovative new products, services, and business leaders across the globe. Award winners will be announced and ranked on April 21 at the Edison Awards Annual Gala in New York City.  160226-N-DE005-007

  • A high-speed camera captures the first full-energy shots from the Office of Naval Research-funded electromagnetic railgun prototype launcher that was recently installed at a test facility in Dahlgren, Va. The test shots begin a month-long series of full-energy tests to evaluate the first of two industry-built launchers that will help bring the Navy a step closer to producing a next-generation, long-range weapon for surface ships. The new launcher brings advanced material and high-power technologies in a system that now resembles a large-caliber gun.  U.S. Navy photo (Released)  120223-N-ZZ999-001

  • DAHLGREN, Va. - Isha Renta, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologist, dances to Bomba music played by Semilla Cultural (Cultural Seed) volunteers at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) sponsored Hispanic Heritage Observance Oct. 7. The performers on stage are NSWCDD scientists and engineers. Renta, the event's guest speaker, founded the Semilla Cultural non-profit organization to cultivate a community that embraces diversity by educating, promoting and disseminating Puerto Rican culture and traditions. The Bomba is a dialogue between the primo drummer and the dancer where the dancer dictates the rhythm of the percussion and the drummer follows the dancers' body and skirt movements. The primo drummer improvises as the dancer challenges the drummer to follow the dancer's improvised movements, called piquetes. Bomba singing is based on a call-response structure in which the lead singer begins the song and is answered by a melody sung by the chorus.
