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.

Offshore Patrol Vessels Technology 2016

Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are becoming an increasingly important resource for Navies and Coast Guards around the world. As shipbuilding technologies continue to advance the mission scope for a single OPV platform greatly increases. Policing missions such as Counter-Piracy and Counter-Terrorism operations can be supplemented now by survey and Mine Countermeasure operations simply by swapping equipment on board the ship. This is all done with a greatly reduced cost compared to mission-specific platforms or full scale warships which have greater maintenance and operations costs compared to flexible OPVs.

Therefore SMi is proud to announce that it will be launching its inaugural OPV Technology event which will focus on the new potential for OPVs within this proliferation in combat and combat support technology capabilities. The event will be held in London on the 8th-9th June to discuss how individual nations are working to enhance the capabilities of their coastal fleets as well as the prospect for future cooperation and interoperability.

Expert speaker line up for 2016 includes key decision makers from: US Africa Command, UK Border Force, French Navy, NATO, Italian Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy, Finnish Border Guard, TNO, Damen Shipyards, C-SIGMA, IISS and many more.

 

Benefits of Attending:

  • Extremely focused on new technologies available to OPV using nations across Europe and beyond
  • Expert led panel discussions on international cooperation in operations and the future prospect for modular technologies
  • Briefings from leading Navy and Coast Guard officers from around the world
  • Learn about current and future national OPV platforms and how they enhance maritime security
  • Discover how to optimise business potential by working with these countries
