Navy Lab Researchers Earn Office of Naval Research Award

Friday, August 31, 2001
Dr. Vernon Simmons, former Senior Scientist, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division (NSWCCD) and Dr. Yuan-Ning Liu, Chief Research Scientist, NSWCCD, received the annual Dr. Arthur E. Bission Prize for Naval Technology Achievement for leading-edge scientific research in structural acoustics. Dr. Simmons was unable to attend the August 23rd ceremony at the Office of Naval Research (ONR), which marked the second year in a row NSWCCD researchers have won the award. Last year the project singled out for accolades was the advanced enclosed composite mast. Their accomplishments resulted in a greater understanding of the interactions of acoustics and structures for submarines, leading to major advances in stealth and sonar performance. "Their contributions have led the way to successful structural acoustics-based solutions to problems that only 20 years ago were considered to be beyond available technology," said Gary Jebsen, ONR Submarine Technology Program Manager. The award is presented to individuals who have successfully translated research findings into substantive fleet programs meeting critical Naval requirements. The award is named in honor of the late Dr. Arthur E. Bission, ONR Director of Science and Technology (1993-96). Dr. Bission began his career at what is now NSWCCD where he provided a model of principled and effective leadership in transitioning science and technology achievements into fleet capabilities. - (Source: NavSea News Wire, By Tom Warring, Public Affairs Office, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock.
