Two NAVSEA Employees Receive Asian American Engineer of Year Award

Two Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) employees received the Asian American Engineer of the Year award March 3, in Albuquerque, N.M.

NAVSEA’s Jae-Yoo Ko and Allen Lim were both recipients of the award which recognizes exceptional contributions of American scientists, engineers and corporate leaders with Asian ethnicity, in their fields of expertise and within their communities.

“Both Jae-Yoo and Allen have earned this honor through hard work and dedication,” said Rear Adm. Dave Duryea, deputy commander for Undersea Warfare (SEA 07). “That both Navy awardees from this year’s group of AAEOY winners are from NAVSEA demonstrates the quality people we have here, and I am proud that both recipients support the undersea community.”

Ko is the deputy assistant program manager in the Program Executive Office, Submarines; responsible for delivery and U.S. Navy acceptance of Virginia class submarines. Ko was named an AAEOY for his sustained leadership and programmatic contributions in the design, development and delivery of superior warfighting capabilities to the U.S. attack submarine force of the future.

Lim is the principal assistant program manager for mission systems with the Advanced Undersea Systems program office within SEA 07. He is responsible for the acquisition and life cycle management of advanced submarine research and development systems. Lim received the award for his employment of rigorous system and test, and evaluation engineering principles in providing the nation’s warfighter with cutting-edge undersea systems.

Team Submarine unites PEO Submarines; the deputy commander, Undersea Warfare; the deputy commander, Undersea Technology; the Naval Undersea Warfare Center; and the Submarine Maintenance Engineering, Planning, and Procurement (SUBMEPP) Activity; which were once separate submarine-related commands and activities, into a single “submarine-centric” team.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
