Dennis Gallagher, from the Underwater Systems Development Group at NSWC Panama City Division describe the Divers Augmented Vision Display (DAVD), a prototype which features a see-through head-up display capability inside a U.S. Navy diving helmet. The prototype uses a waveguide optical display technology to provide high resolution color data and imagery to the diver. The diver can clearly view sonar, video, text messages, photos, schematics, and augmented reality overlays during training and actual dive missions. #SAS2018 #OneNAVSEAPosted by Naval Sea Systems Command on Wednesday, April 11, 2018
Amy Luebbering, a chemical engineer, from NSWC Indian Head EOD Technology Division describes the Resonant Acoustic Mixer, which is shaking up the future of energetic mixing. This mixer reduces mixing times, creates a safer environment to mix energetic materials, and allows direct scalability from lab units to full-scale production units. #SAS2018 #OneNAVSEAPosted by Naval Sea Systems Command on Wednesday, April 11, 2018

St. Mary's City, Md. — NSWC IHEODTD, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and The Patuxent Partnership formalized an educational partnership agreement that will advance scientific research and foster academic growth in science, mathematics, technology, and engineering. Representatives from those organizations gathered on the College campus Friday, March 23, to sign the agreement.
The signers included (pictured right to left) Tuajuanda C. Jordan, St. Mary’s College president; NSWC IHEODTD Commanding Officer Capt. Scott Kraft and Technical Director Ashley Johnson, and Bonnie Green, executive director, The Patuxent Partnership, a non-profit member organization that works with government, industry, and academia to advance technology-related education and workforce development.
“Often, success is determined by the connections we make and the partnerships we establish,” said Jordan. “This agreement will enable our students and faculty to collaborate with industry experts and gain practical, hands-on skills that will give them a competitive edge in the marketplace.”
“This partnership is just another example of how we can leverage the knowledge around us in Southern Maryland to enhance energetic materials and systems to better support the Navy,” said Johnson.
“By providing opportunities at Indian Head for their research scientists and engineers to work with SMCM students and faculty, this agreement will strengthen and support the recruitment process and strengthen STEM workforce development,” said Green. “There will be additional opportunities for SMCM students to conduct research, work as interns, and pursue potential career opportunities. The Patuxent Partnership will foster these connections, identifying opportunities for students and faculty, and providing visibility and support.”
“We are excited about this partnership and look forward to sharing our knowledge and expertise while attracting top-notch potential employees,” said Kraft. “We will also benefit from our partners’ expertise allowing us to boost our capabilities, products and services to the warfighter.”
The agreement will also provide educational and research experiences for St. Mary’s College students and faculty using expertise, unique facilities, equipment and technology. Furthermore, the agreement will facilitate student internships, particularly in fields relating to the real-world technical applications required by the U.S. Navy.
Mr. Johnson joins his collegues from NSWC Dahlgren Divisionand Naval Air Station Patuxent River and The Patuxent Partnership at a program earlier this month.
White Plains, Md. ― Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head EOD Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD) Commanding Officer Capt. Scott Kraft presented the command's Special Awards for Science at the conclusion of Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) History, Industry, Technology, and Science (H.I.T.S) Exposition, conducted Saturday at St. Charles High School.
"It's very important for NSWC IHEODTD to nourish its long-lasting relationship with Charles County Public Schools," said Kraft. "Supporting these young students strengthens the connection we have with the people who live and raise their children here."
Volunteers from Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head EOD Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD) serve as judges for local Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) preliminary science competitions annually during February and March, culminating in a final science fair.
Charles County expanded the scope of the event in 2016, branding it as the H.I.T.S. Expo, and has used St. Charles High School as the annual venue since then.
"Students of all learning abilities and ages are challenged to research, question, and interpret sources as they study topics of interest in a variety of science and social studies fields," said CCPS Deputy Superintendent, Amy Holstein. "These activities promote critical and creative thinking skills as students use them to become novice historians and scientists who ask questions, seek evidence through experimentation and research, and broaden their perspectives and understanding of a topic in order to draw conclusions."
The H.I.T.S. Expo is one of several educational outreach opportunities NSWC IHEODTD supports throughout Charles County. Maintaining a robust Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) outreach program has many advantages. NSWC IHEODTD Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Coordinator Kerry Clark said that seeing the projects local kids come up with is very encouraging. "We always encourage them to do well in school so that someday they might work right here with us," said Clark.
