Woodbury has joined the company as Director of Government Systems, a new position. He will report to Bradford Briggs, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing. Woodbury has sixteen years of experience in commercial telecommunications. After thirty years in Navy communications, he began his civilian career in 1987 with GTE Government Systems. As Manager, Navy Systems, in Chesapeake, Va., he was GTE Program Manager for the first fully encrypted ship/shore/ship Ku band commercial satellite video teleconference, between the USS George Washington (CVN73) at sea, the Commander-in-Chief of the Atlantic Fleet in Norfolk, and the Space and Electronic Warfare Directorate in the Pentagon.
