SSC Atlantic engineers are flexing their cybersecurity muscles this afternoon during Hack Warz at the DON IT Conference East & Maritime IT Summit in Norfolk, Va. Hack Warz is a capture the flag event where participants gain points by compromising systems. They will close the event by explaining how to harden the systems to make them more difficult to be compromised. #DONITEast
SSC Atlantic celebrated #EarthDay Thursday in Hampton Roads with Tanner Council from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Tanner discussed the health of the Chesapeake Bay, current and future threats, and efforts to improve/maintain the Bay.
What are you doing to protect our planet on this lovely Sunday?
Today wraps up #NationalVolunteerWeek2018 and we couldn't let this week go by without thanking the many volunteers who work with students in our community. Last year, SSC Atlantic worked with over 44,500 students, 300+ volunteers, totaling over 17,000 hours, which included more than 90 FIRST Robotics teams. We value the opportunity to give back to the students and show them the importance of a #STEM education.
“It’s a big milestone in the CANES progression. We started CANES installs on the ships four years ago, and this is the next generation of the process where ships with CANES networks are getting an updated version.” - Lt. Cmdr. Chris Matters, SSC Atlantic Fleet Readiness Directorate Installation Office Atlantic

The 6th Annual Palmetto Cyber Defense Competition was held over the weekend in North Charleston, SC. High school and college students participated in a simulated networking challenge to protect computer infrastructures from being hacked by intruders. The cyber defense competition is part of a growing movement to develop technical skills and interest in the areas of networking and cybersecurity.
Proud to host Chief of Navy Reserve and Force Master Chief today and brief them on our extraordinary SPAWAR Reserve Program
This week's #FeatureFriday celebrates SSC Atlantic's own electrical engineer Sarah Monk, who won the 2017 DON T&E Aspiring Tester award!

What better way to celebrate #TechTuesday than by highlighting some of the U.S. Navy's cutting-edge technologies being demonstrated at the #SAS2018 Information Warfare Pavilion at booth 2747.
SSC Atlantic is demonstrating AN/FYC-22B/C Visual Information Display System (VIDS), a Navy-unique, everything-at-your-fingertips information management program that integrates multiple information systems into a single display. SSC Atlantic provides VIDS cradle-to-grave support for the for Air Traffic Control Facilities throughout the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps. With a minimal physical footprint, VIDS workstations are comprised of a color, flat panel touch entry display and trackball/keyboard for use in accessing air traffic control-related applications.
SSC Atlantic data scientists are at #SAS2018 demonstrating their cutting-edge capabilities that allow warfighters to receive, interpret and act on data quickly and more securely. SSC Atlantic Public Affairs Officer Lonnie Cowart talks with scientist Keith Reck about how CarePoint Information Portal empowers the warfighter. #InformationWarfare

Vice Adm. Tighe, DCNO for #InformationWarfare, kicks off the #SAS2018 IW Pavilion at booth 2747: “The Chief of Naval Operations is focused on building and maintaining the Navy the Nation Needs. He calls for a bigger fleet, a better fleet, a networked fleet, a more talented fleet, an agile fleet and a ready fleet. The Information Warfare community, through many of the systems, initiatives and capabilities that we'll talk about and demonstrate at Sea Air Space, plays a big role in building that Navy the Nation Needs. Our partnerships with industry are crucial to the process."
We are here at the ‘launch’ of #SAS2018 at the #InformationWarfare Pavilion, booth 2747, where the Navy Communications Satellite Program Office (PMW 146) is showcasing the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) and discussing the impact of the five satellite launches that have provided secure satellite communications for mobile forces. #Seabed2Space #NavyInnovates

SSC Atlantic employees demonstrated information warfare capabilities that support the warfighter to SPAWAR Commander Rear Adm. Boris Becker during his visit to the Network Integration and Engineering Facility (NIEF LANT) and the Enterprise Staging and Warehousing production facilities in Hampton Roads yesterday.
“The best thing about the labs that I saw today is the people. The passion that the people inside those labs brings to the mission means they can accomplish anything. The labs are very capable, and the capacity is there to make a big difference for our U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps, and they have already. But I’m pretty excited about what’s going to come, and none of that is going to happen without the quality, the capability and the passion for the mission that the people here have demonstrated.” -Rear Adm. Boris Becker.
Maritime superiority demands getting capabilties right ashore, too. Recently, representatives from commands across the fleet gathered in San Diego to discuss Shore as an Information Warfare Platform. Read more!
