Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and USS Tennessee (SSBN 734) were among the award win ners. Kings Bay earned both the Secretary of the Navy Safety Excellence Award and the Chief of Naval Op erations Shore Safety Award for the most outstanding, small, non-industrial activity. It is a great honor for our base and for our whole region to receive these awards, said NSB Kings Bay Safety Manager Lorri Newman. ey reect the true eorts of everyone, from junior personnel to top management, in fostering a culture that is con sciously focused on safety. Newman was present with Capt. Harvey Guey, Jr., commanding ocer of NSB Kings Bay, to receive the award. USS Tennessee earned the Secretary of the Navys Safety Excellence Award for the most outstanding submarine. Ten More than 70 children take part in Sky: Everything is possible with Gode Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Chapel welcomed more than 70 children to its 2012 Vacation Bible School Sky: Everything is Possible with God. For ve days children ages 5 to 11 learned of Gods love and faithfulness. Coordinated by Donna Horn, director of Religious Education, and Clainetta Jeer son, VBS director, this command religious program oered school age children an op portunity to engage in faith-based learning in a caring and fun-lled environment. e most important thing was that the children learned that they can trust God to lead and guide them throughout their lives, Jeerson said. We were blessed to be able to provide this program for our military fam ilies. I am grateful for the seless support from the commands and the community. e children had a great time and we look forward to doing it again next year. Children began each day at the Up and Away Sing and Play where they learned fun motions to upbeat Bible songs like Fly, You, You, You, and Ill Fly Away. With the help of Bible Buddies like Pat the Bat, Orville the Pig and Scout the Eagle, students learned that No matter who you are, no matter how you feel, no matter what people do, no mat ter what happens, and no matter where you are trust God! roughout the morning, students moved from one learning station to another, to ex plore Gods word in new and interesting ways. At the Wild Bible Adventure, Chaplain Lara Byrd taught students about the life, miracles and resurrection of Christ. At other stations like Sky High Games students enjoyed silly races and other fun outdoor activities. While visiting the Crafts station students made picture frames, wall hangers and other items that would help remind them of Gods faithfulness in their lives. As an important part of the day, students were able to feast in the Sky Dive Diner where they enjoyed healthy and delicious meals. At the end of each morning the students and volunteers gathered in the chapel for the closing event of the day known as the Finale. ere the students reviewed the im portant lessons of the day, sang songs and ended the day on a high note of Gods love.

Kent Miller, director, Enlisted Dis tribution Division, Navy Personnel Command. Applicants may also be eligible to defer Perform-to-Serve, providing an opportunity to en hance their record with operational duty. VSDP was announced in January to support the Navys war-ghting mission of operating forward and maintaining readiness. e program encourages highly trained and motivated Sailors to voluntarily extend their enlistment in their current sea duty billet be yond their prescribed sea tour, to terminate shore duty and accept new orders to a sea duty billet or to accept back-to-back sea duty orders beyond their prescribed sea/shore ow. e sea duty assignment may be on board ships, squadrons, or other qualied sea duty assignments. NAVADMIN 205/12 claries 15 items from the initial message. Among the updates: Sailors in the PTS eligibility window who wish to apply for VSDP must have their VSDP application submitted for consideration no later than the last day of the month, two months prior to their final PTS application. VSDP orders will not be can celled for Sailors who subsequent ly receive a PTS quota after VSDP orders have been negotiated. Sailors on shore duty must sub mit their VSDP request no later than 12 months prior to their projected rotation date. VSDP requests for Sailors who have completed less than 24 months on their current shore tour will be considered on a case-by-case basis based on orders requested and cur rent command manning. Sailors serving overseas, or in a DoD-area tour, can request to extend their current sea tour, cur tail their current shore tour if they remain in the same geographical area, or request back-to-back sea duty in any area of their choice with a valid billet. Consecutive Overseas Tour re quirements may apply. Volunteers will not be required to accept a billet they do not desire. Detailers will work with volunteers during two Career Management System/Interactive Detailing cycles to nd desirable orders. If no match is found during this time period their VSDP application will expire and Sailors still desiring VSDP must reapply. is program does not change eligibility or benets for the Sea Duty Incentive Pay, which provides eligible Sailors an additional $500 to $1,000 a month for extending their sea tour or returning to sea duty early. Sailors may take advantage of both programs concurrently. Requests will be accepted until Sep. 30. All 1306/7 requests should be forwarded to NPC via the chain of command. Sailors interested in applying for VSDP should read NAVDMINs 043/12 and 205/12 for complete details and talk with their chain of command.

Advanced, yable elec tronics and scene simulation technology are being sought for video synthetic aperture radar. Warghters who encounter enemy forces on the ground benet from overhead aircraft support. Some capabilities are lost, however, when cloud-cover obscures the view. Typically, airborne weapon systems that use electro-optic sensors dur ing support missions cant see through clouds. Defense Advanced Re search Projects Agencys Video Synthetic Aperture Radar program seeks to develop and demonstrate an Extremely High Frequency targeting sensor which operates through clouds as eectively as to days infrared sensors op erate in clear weather. e goal is a synthetic aperture radar that provides high-resolution, full-motion video to en gage maneuvering ground targets through clouds or in the clear, without hav ing to change tactics, techniques and procedures, said Bruce Wallace, DAR PA program manager. Ultimately, we intend to demonstrate a cloudpenetrating EHF sensor in a moveable gimbal that could be mounted on a va riety of aerial platforms. DARPA seeks technology proposals in ight-wor thy electronics, including power ampliers and inte grated receiver and excit ers that are small enough to t easily aboard aircraft. Another key proposal area is the development of new algorithms which could exploit the features of this sensor technology. Were looking for pro posers with advanced ex pertise in scene simula tion software to simulate realistic synthetic EHF radar data sets, Wallace said. We anticipate that the system developer will use these raw data sets to test image formation, autofocus, detection and geolocation algorithms. e ViSAR system ex pects to create SAR im ages of the background at frame rates greater than currently available. In addition, the system should have Ground Mov ing Target Indicator capa bility providing the ability to detect moving targets and reposition their cor rect location in the scene. e GMTI processing is done in parallel with SAR processing.

Recipients were awarded a citation, plaque and the Secretary of the Navys safety ag, which they are entitled to y for a year. We must change the way we approach safety because it makes us bet ter warghters, Work said. We must be able to safely operate on ships, aircraft, and ashore, be cause doing so will make us a more eective ght ing force. Our people are our priority. Keeping our Sailors, Marines and civilians safe is of utmost importance because it ensures we are able to keep doing what the Navy and the Marine Corps have always done, which is to innovate and adapt,. e awards were ac cepted by representatives from the commands, in cluding command leadership, safety ocers and safety petty ocers who held the title or collateral duty during the period cited. You saved lives and property and prevented accidents. On behalf of the Secretary of the Navy, I thank you and oer congratulations for your accomplishments, Work said.

By Lt. j.g. Ted Haskell and e Periscope sta contributed to this report. Speaking out against sexual assault Safety through programs, events, and partnerships, according to the USA Basketball Web site. If youre a huge sports fan, this is one of these events that have got to be memorable to you, Dempsey said. It is a huge morale boost for us, that is to say, those that serve and their families. Dempsey said the event was a great morale boost for troops, but it was equally important for the mens and womens basket ball teams, which he had the opportunity to talk to before the event began. I told them Im not going to give you any advice on how to play basketball, he said. Im not going to talk to you about leadership because youve got Coach Mike Krzyzewski and Geno Auriemma, two of the nest leaders of any profession in our country. Krzyzewksi coach es the USA Basketball mens national team and Auriemma coaches the USA Basketball womens national team. e chairman said he ex plained to the players how the U.S. militarys young men and women operate with trust in themselves, their leaders and the institution they support. I let it just sit there, Dempsey said. I didnt tell them: ere fore, you need to trust each other. But in having that conversation about what makes us an eective team, and the foun dation of which is trust, I think theyre clever enough young men and young women to gure out that the message is if theyre going to succeed in London theyd better learn to trust each other in an extraordinary way. Dempsey also explained his connection to Krzyzewski. We do go back several decades I guess, Dempsey said with a laugh, [Were] both West Pointers him, Class of ; Im the Class of I went to gradu ate school at Duke while he was the coach. And then when I became the [U.S.] Training and Doctrine commander, I reached out to him on the basis on a shared interest in leader development, the chairman continued. And on that basis, weve grown even closer over the years. e chairman said he most admires Krzyzewskis ability to adapt, which is one of the at tributes weve said as a force is most in need in the future because we dont know exactly what well confront. Dempsey also touched on the Hoops for Troops program which is an eort to keep con nected to athletes and serves as one of a triad of important national outreach eorts. Another outreach program of interest to the military, the chairman said, is First Lady Mi chelle Obamas Lets Move initiative, which seeks to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation. DOD began partnering with the Lets Move initiative last year. e Labor Department awarded 90 grants totaling more than $20 million to fund job training and support services July 2 that ocials said will help more than 11,000 veterans succeed in civilian careers. e grants are being awarded through the departments Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program. Americans who have served their country should not nd themselves without a home, Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis said. e grants announced today will help these heroes nd good jobs and take us one step closer to the goal of ending veteran homelessness altogether. e grants are secondand third-year awards to state and local workforce in vestment boards, local public agencies and nonprot organizations, including faith-based and community organiza tions, that demonstrated satisfactory performance during the past year, of cials said. Some of the grants are set aside to serve formerly incarcerated veterans, female veterans and veterans with families who are homeless.

When I moved to Florida, I had to have a boat. It seemed to fit the lifestyle. But I never got one. What I did get was married, and x-2 wanted a pool. So we got one. In retrospect, it may be the only thing she was ever right about. A pool is very nice. You just jump in a cool off. I still think it would be sweet to have a boat. But, lets face it. Even with a boat you cant just jump in the water around here because there are a lot of things in there you dont want to deal with. FT2 Chris Tibbs USS Georgia Gold Dyersburg, Tenn. A boat.

Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho A Navy honor guard paid tribute to the late actor Ernest Borgnine with a full-honors military sendo at Forest Lawn Memorial-Park and Mortuaries cemetery in Hollywood, Calif., July 14. e honor guard honored Borg nines lifetime of service and contri butions to the Navy and its cause. Ernie, as you may know, loved and adored the Navy, and the sea, and all of you, said Tova Traesnaes Borgnine, the late actors wife. I know Ernies looking down on us right now and blessing all of you and all of your fellows across the world for all you do for our country, for our people, and especially for us today. After serving in the Navy for 10 years, Borgnine left the service at the end of World War II as a Petty Ocer 1st Class. Ten years later, he won an acade my award for his performance as the lead in Marty. He went on to star as the title char acter in the hit s sitcom McHales Navy. In 2004, then-Master Chief Petty Ocer of the Navy Terry D. Scott awarded Borgnine with an honorary advancement to chief petty ocer. When Ernie was promoted to honorary chief ... there was never, of all the honors even Ernies acad emy award never anything that meant as much to him, said retired U.S. Navy Capt. Kathi Dugan, one of Borgnines closest friends. He had tears in his eyes. When Borgnine was making his nal arrangements, requesting military honors at his funeral was denitely his idea, said Dugan. Dugan quoted Borgnine as say ing, I dont know if Ive earned [a military funeral], but I cant think of a more appropriate way for me to leave this world than with my Navy men and women. e Navy portion of the ceremo ny was organized by Builder 2nd Class Marco Valdovinos, the funeral honor guard district coordinator at tached to the Navy Operational Sup port Center in Moreno Valley. Valdovinos says that his 30-mem ber contingent of Reserve Sailors have ociated at more than 1,450 ceremonies this past scal year. is veteran has a great history of contributions to our community, to our nation and to the service, Val dovinos said. To me, its a tremen dous honor. eres nothing greater for me, to be able to serve in this ca pacity. To render one nal salute to our fallen veteran it is just great. Borgnine thought so highly of the Navy that he asked in his will that at tendants to his funeral donate to the Navy and Marine Corps Relief Soci ety in lieu of bringing owers. One attendant from the press donated a thousand dollars that day.Navy honors Borgnine for service THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, July 19, 2012 9

Veterans Moving For ward provides veterans with therapy and service dogs and amongst the pup pies they are raising to help veterans cope with various injuries is an assistance dog in training that is near and dear to our hearts. His name is Nathan, in honor of Petty Ocer 3rd Class Nathan Bruckenthal. Compass is sharing Na thans journey from birth, through his puppy years and into his nal stages of training in the series Life of a Service Dog. Enjoy Nathans story as he goes from a clumsy puppy to a focused service animal ready to serve our nations veterans. As a young pup I was told a lot about becoming a service dog, even though I really did not know what it all meant. I just gured I would un derstand someday. For now, I was busy having fun learning about all the new things in my life. My han dler who I sometimes call my two legged mom Ill tell you a little canine se cret, we call humans two leggers cause most of us mammals have four she thought it was time for me to learn a little more about my namesake, Pet ty Ocer 3rd Class Nathan Nate Bruckenthal. As most of you know, Nate was on a security mission near the Iraqi Khawr Al Amaya Oil Ter minal in April 2004 when suicide bombers initiated a waterborne assault. He was severely wounded and later died from his in juries. He sacriced his life for his country. I was eager to learn more about him to live up to his memory. But since I cant read, my handler thought it was best for me to visit Arling ton National Cemetery to introduce me to Nate. One beautiful spring day we went to Arlington. Stopping at the visitors center for instructions and directions being a boy and a dog I would not have needed directions but mom wanted direc tions. She got something on a piece of paper and o we went to Section 60. She picked a row and be gan searching the raised stones, stopping at various ones for writing that matched what was on the piece of paper. I started pulling on the leash because I knew ex actly where I was going. As a young pup I was not very well versed in your human language. You see canines may not be able to read your language very well but we have some senses that hu mans either dont have or dont exercise very well. We read body language and can see emotion via our keen sense of smell. And sometimes we simply see other stu that is hard to explain to humans. I nally pulled my han dler a couple of rows away and further into the eld of raised stones and lay next to one of the stones. Nate was here. She was not happy with my tugging on the leash and walked past me still looking at her piece of paper. She tried to get me to move, but I would not. Nate was here. She walked back to me, I looked up above the stone, and she realized we were in the right place. I had found Nate on my own. I knew this place. It was a calm, peaceful place. I have never met Nate, but I met him here. For the rst time I realized how important it is for me to carry the same strength of charac ter, condence, sense of duty to eagerly serve (oh, thats where the ser vice in service dog comes from) when asked, and to love and be loyal to fam ily, friends and those that might need me. We stayed with Nate for a long time, and I was very comfortable. I told myself I would live up to Nates memory and be a proud ambassador for him and the U.S. Coast Guard. I wanted to stay, but it was getting late and we had to go. My tummy told me it was approaching my din ner time. I knew I would see Nate again and that made leaving all right. A few moments after jumping into the car I im mediately fell into a deep sound sleep. Remember, us puppies sleep a lot. About a month after visiting Nate at Arlington, we were o to New York City again. I had done so well the last visit everyone thought I could go again. is time was going to be special, not just because we were going to be meeting people who would help Veterans Mov ing Forward, but I was going to get to meet Nate Bruckenthals father, Ric,and other members of his family. I could hardly wait. is trip to New York we took the train from Union Station in Washington D.C. to Penn Station in New York City. In the sta tion there were people ev erywhere and all sorts of smells and noises, which added to my excitement. I met several nice people from Veterans Moving For ward who were traveling with me, but I was focused on meeting Nates father. I could barely sleep on the train as it rocked and rattled. Finally we arrived at Penn Station, but had to walk many blocks to the place where the gathering was taking place. When we arrived there were lots of nice people to meet, but not Nates father. We waited. We walked out to pee. I still have to say, when you are use to grass and mulch, peeing on con crete is well dierent. When we got back to the gathering we met sev eral aunts and uncles and cousins but not Nates fa ther. Finally, there he was. It was hard to get to him because of all the peoples legs in the way. But when I made it to him he dropped down to meet me, not like most people who lean over and pat my head. He came close to me so I could touch and smell him, that is what us dogs do to say hello. I liked Nates father from the moment I met him. He was warm and had a generous spirit. And he likes dogs. He introduced me to Pat, who also likes dogs, and soon we were all hug ging and petting. It was wonderful to feel this warm embrace. Next we gathered for a photo. I got to sit right in the middle of all these wonderful people. I was so proud to be part of this family. I am the luckiest dog in the world I have a ca nine family, a handler and trainer family, a Veterans Moving Forward family, a Bruckenthal family and a Coast Guard family. I intend to make them all proud. e evening ended all too soon as we had to catch our train back to Washington D.C. I slept soundly all the way zzzzzzz I hope youll join me for my next story, when I share more about my training.

During last years tests on Ike, we found minor interfacing issues with the in-ight software aboard the Hor net, and have modied that software to be more similar to the software in the X-47B. e King Air has more room on board compared to the Hornet, so we were able to include a better model of UAV soft ware and more accurately test the software. e NAVAIR team also tested shipboard UCAS-D software integration with Trumans Carrier Air-Traf c Control Center and primary ight control, said Reynolds. e testing went well, Reynolds said. We ac complished all of our ob jectives and it was a very successful detachment. [e UAV] is certainly much closer to ready for prime time than it has been in the past. Testing a new aircraft, especially one which is unmanned, is a slow pro cess, said Reynolds. Unmanned landing near

A new sensor and soft ware suite sponsored by the Oce of Naval Re search recently returned from West Africa after helping partner nations track and identify target vessels of interest as part of an international mari time security operation, ocials announced July 10. Researchers deployed the system, called Rough Rhino, aboard U.S. air craft, ships and partner nation ships operating in waters o the coast of Sen egal and Cape Verde. Sailors and Coast Guardsmen could access and control the sensors both aoat and ashore, as well as share information in a real-time common operating picture. It provides a comprehensive maritime domain awareness picture for dark, gray and light targets-vessels that range from no electronic emis sions to those that cooper atively report their name and positions, said Dr. Mi chael Pollock, ONRs division director for electronics, sensors and networks. Rough Rhino was re sponsible for nding targets during the most recent two-week African Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership operation. e primary missions are aimed at assisting and building the host nations capability to interdict and counter narcotics, human tracking and illegal sh ing. On any given day, the distributed intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance system tracked more than 600 targets, identied vessels of inter est and culminated in 24 boardings by Gambian, Senegalese and U.S. mari time security teams. For future operations, Gambia and Senegal will continue to work with Af rican partner nations to build and maintain mari time security and safety. Rough Rhino provided them one of the clear est maritime operational pictures that theyve ever seen, Pollock said. ey could detect, locate, quan tify and conrm detailed activities of all vessels in their respective countries exclusive economic zones. AMLEP provided an op portunity to test the prototype Rough Rhino system in an operationally and tactically relevant environment, allowing design ers and developers to see rsthand where the sys tem needs improvement. e system includes ra dar, optics, electronic sur veillance and integrated software modied and developed by ONR contractors and the Naval Research Laboratory. e system was installed on the Naval Research Laboratorys VXS-1 P-3, USS Simpson and Senegalese ships SNS Poponguine and SNS Djiere. e unique aspect to this project is how the re search directly supports an ongoing operation and how we can immediately ingest operator feedback Pollock said. He added that the soft ware is constantly rewrit ten annually from the ground up to keep up with changing technology, sen sor improvements, and eet and operator needs. To date, the system has participated in ve major operations, including AM LEP 2011 and 2012. Participants particularly liked the systems ease of use, requiring little training, and clarity, as well as its information stor age and retrieval abilities, which can be used to sup port after-action reviews and legal prosecutions. AMLEP is a joint mis sion conducted by the U.S. Africa Command, U.S. Naval Forces Africa, U.S. Coast Guard Atlantic Area and multiple West African navies and coast guards. AMLEP is the operational portion of the Africa Part nership Station initiative in which African navies employ their professional skill, knowledge and ex perience to combat crime at sea. Since 2007, the U.S. Navy has worked alongside Af rican partner navies and coast guards through a series of APS training events and regional exercises to improve maritime safety and security Additionally, operations such as AMLEP provide participants with numer ous opportunities to oper ate together and develop productive relationships through real-world situa tions.

Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and USS Tennessee (SSBN 734) were among the award winners. Kings Bay earned both the Secretary of the Navy Safety Excellence Award and the Chief of Naval Operations Shore Safety Award for the most outstanding, small, non-industrial activity. It is a great honor for our base and for our whole region to receive these awards, said NSB Kings Bay Safety Manager Lorri Newman. ey reect the true eorts of everyone, from junior personnel to top management, in fostering a culture that is consciously focused on safety. Newman was present with Capt. Harvey Guey, Jr., commanding ocer of NSB Kings Bay, to receive the award. USS Tennessee earned the Secretary of the Navys Safety Excellence Award for the most outstanding submarine. TenMore than 70 children take part in Sky: Everything is possible with Gode Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Chapel welcomed more than 70 children to its 2012 Vacation Bible School Sky: Everything is Possible with God. For ve days children ages 5 to 11 learned of Gods love and faithfulness. Coordinated by Donna Horn, director of Religious Education, and Clainetta Jeerson, VBS director, this command religious program oered school age children an opportunity to engage in faith-based learning in a caring and fun-lled environment. e most important thing was that the children learned that they can trust God to lead and guide them throughout their lives, Jeerson said. We were blessed to be able to provide this program for our military families. I am grateful for the seless support from the commands and the community. e children had a great time and we look forward to doing it again next year. Children began each day at the Up and Away Sing and Play where they learned fun motions to upbeat Bible songs like Fly, You, You, You, and Ill Fly Away. With the help of Bible Buddies like Pat the Bat, Orville the Pig and Scout the Eagle, students learned that No matter who you are, no matter how you feel, no matter what people do, no matter what happens, and no matter where you are trust God! roughout the morning, students moved from one learning station to another, to explore Gods word in new and interesting ways. At the Wild Bible Adventure, Chaplain Lara Byrd taught students about the life, miracles and resurrection of Christ. At other stations like Sky High Games students enjoyed silly races and other fun outdoor activities. While visiting the Crafts station students made picture frames, wall hangers and other items that would help remind them of Gods faithfulness in their lives. As an important part of the day, students were able to feast in the Sky Dive Diner where they enjoyed healthy and delicious meals. At the end of each morning the students and volunteers gathered in the chapel for the closing event of the day known as the Finale. ere the students reviewed the important lessons of the day, sang songs and ended the day on a high note of Gods love.

Kent Miller, director, Enlisted Distribution Division, Navy Personnel Command. Applicants may also be eligible to defer Perform-to-Serve, providing an opportunity to enhance their record with operational duty. VSDP was announced in January to support the Navys war-ghting mission of operating forward and maintaining readiness. e program encourages highly trained and motivated Sailors to voluntarily extend their enlistment in their current sea duty billet beyond their prescribed sea tour, to terminate shore duty and accept new orders to a sea duty billet or to accept back-to-back sea duty orders beyond their prescribed sea/shore ow. e sea duty assignment may be on board ships, squadrons, or other qualied sea duty assignments. NAVADMIN 205/12 claries 15 items from the initial message. Among the updates: Sailors in the PTS eligibility window who wish to apply for VSDP must have their VSDP application submitted for consideration no later than the last day of the month, two months prior to their final PTS application. VSDP orders will not be cancelled for Sailors who subsequently receive a PTS quota after VSDP orders have been negotiated. Sailors on shore duty must submit their VSDP request no later than 12 months prior to their projected rotation date. VSDP requests for Sailors who have completed less than 24 months on their current shore tour will be considered on a case-by-case basis based on orders requested and current command manning. Sailors serving overseas, or in a DoD-area tour, can request to extend their current sea tour, curtail their current shore tour if they remain in the same geographical area, or request back-to-back sea duty in any area of their choice with a valid billet. Consecutive Overseas Tour requirements may apply. Volunteers will not be required to accept a billet they do not desire. Detailers will work with volunteers during two Career Management System/Interactive Detailing cycles to nd desirable orders. If no match is found during this time period their VSDP application will expire and Sailors still desiring VSDP must reapply. is program does not change eligibility or benets for the Sea Duty Incentive Pay, which provides eligible Sailors an additional $500 to $1,000 a month for extending their sea tour or returning to sea duty early. Sailors may take advantage of both programs concurrently. Requests will be accepted until Sep. 30. All 1306/7 requests should be forwarded to NPC via the chain of command. Sailors interested in applying for VSDP should read NAVDMINs 043/12 and 205/12 for complete details and talk with their chain of command.

Advanced, yable electronics and scene simulation technology are being sought for video synthetic aperture radar. Warghters who encounter enemy forces on the ground benet from overhead aircraft support. Some capabilities are lost, however, when cloud-cover obscures the view. Typically, airborne weapon systems that use electro-optic sensors during support missions cant see through clouds. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agencys Video Synthetic Aperture Radar program seeks to develop and demonstrate an Extremely High Frequency targeting sensor which operates through clouds as eectively as todays infrared sensors operate in clear weather. e goal is a synthetic aperture radar that provides high-resolution, full-motion video to engage maneuvering ground targets through clouds or in the clear, without having to change tactics, techniques and procedures, said Bruce Wallace, DARPA program manager. Ultimately, we intend to demonstrate a cloudpenetrating EHF sensor in a moveable gimbal that could be mounted on a variety of aerial platforms. DARPA seeks technology proposals in ight-worthy electronics, including power ampliers and integrated receiver and exciters that are small enough to t easily aboard aircraft. Another key proposal area is the development of new algorithms which could exploit the features of this sensor technology. Were looking for proposers with advanced expertise in scene simulation software to simulate realistic synthetic EHF radar data sets, Wallace said. We anticipate that the system developer will use these raw data sets to test image formation, autofocus, detection and geolocation algorithms. e ViSAR system expects to create SAR images of the background at frame rates greater than currently available. In addition, the system should have Ground Moving Target Indicator capability providing the ability to detect moving targets and reposition their correct location in the scene. e GMTI processing is done in parallel with SAR processing.

To receive this recognition while completing an arduous 32-month overhaul at Norfolk Naval Shipyard and follow-on recertication demonstrates the crews dedication and resolve to operate every day in a safe and controlled manner. e Under Secretary of the Navy Robert Work, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics Vice Adm. Philip Cullom, Deputy Commandant, Installations and Logistics Lt. Gen. Frank Panter and Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Safety Paul Hanley were on hand to congratulate the winners. Recipients were awarded a citation, plaque and the Secretary of the Navys safety ag, which they are entitled to y for a year. We must change the way we approach safety because it makes us better warghters, Work said. We must be able to safely operate on ships, aircraft, and ashore, because doing so will make us a more eective ghting force. Our people are our priority. Keeping our Sailors, Marines and civilians safe is of utmost importance because it ensures we are able to keep doing what the Navy and the Marine Corps have always done, which is to innovate and adapt,. e awards were accepted by representatives from the commands, including command leadership, safety ocers and safety petty ocers who held the title or collateral duty during the period cited. You saved lives and property and prevented accidents. On behalf of the Secretary of the Navy, I thank you and oer congratulations for your accomplishments, Work said.

Speaking out against sexual assault Safety through programs, events, and partnerships, according to the USA Basketball Web site. If youre a huge sports fan, this is one of these events that have got to be memorable to you, Dempsey said. It is a huge morale boost for us, that is to say, those that serve and their families. Dempsey said the event was a great morale boost for troops, but it was equally important for the mens and womens basketball teams, which he had the opportunity to talk to before the event began. I told them Im not going to give you any advice on how to play basketball, he said. Im not going to talk to you about leadership because youve got Coach Mike Krzyzewski and Geno Auriemma, two of the nest leaders of any profession in our country. Krzyzewksi coaches the USA Basketball mens national team and Auriemma coaches the USA Basketball womens national team. e chairman said he explained to the players how the U.S. militarys young men and women operate with trust in themselves, their leaders and the institution they support. I let it just sit there, Dempsey said. I didnt tell them: erefore, you need to trust each other. But in having that conversation about what makes us an eective team, and the foundation of which is trust, I think theyre clever enough young men and young women to gure out that the message is if theyre going to succeed in London theyd better learn to trust each other in an extraordinary way. Dempsey also explained his connection to Krzyzewski. We do go back several decades I guess, Dempsey said with a laugh, [Were] both West Pointers him, Class of ; Im the Class of I went to graduate school at Duke while he was the coach. And then when I became the [U.S.] Training and Doctrine commander, I reached out to him on the basis on a shared interest in leader development, the chairman continued. And on that basis, weve grown even closer over the years. e chairman said he most admires Krzyzewskis ability to adapt, which is one of the attributes weve said as a force is most in need in the future because we dont know exactly what well confront. Dempsey also touched on the Hoops for Troops program which is an eort to keep connected to athletes and serves as one of a triad of important national outreach eorts. Another outreach program of interest to the military, the chairman said, is First Lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move initiative, which seeks to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation. DOD began partnering with the Lets Move initiative last year. e Labor Department awarded 90 grants totaling more than $20 million to fund job training and support services July 2 that ocials said will help more than 11,000 veterans succeed in civilian careers. e grants are being awarded through the departments Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program. Americans who have served their country should not nd themselves without a home, Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis said. e grants announced today will help these heroes nd good jobs and take us one step closer to the goal of ending veteran homelessness altogether. e grants are secondand third-year awards to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprot organizations, including faith-based and community organizations, that demonstrated satisfactory performance during the past year, ofcials said. Some of the grants are set aside to serve formerly incarcerated veterans, female veterans and veterans with families who are homeless.

When I moved to Florida, I had to have a boat. It seemed to fit the lifestyle. But I never got one. What I did get was married, and x-2 wanted a pool. So we got one. In retrospect, it may be the only thing she was ever right about. A pool is very nice. You just jump in a cool off. I still think it would be sweet to have a boat. But, lets face it. Even with a boat you cant just jump in the water around here because there are a lot of things in there you dont want to deal with. FT2 Chris Tibbs USS Georgia Gold Dyersburg, Tenn. A boat.

Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho A Navy honor guard paid tribute to the late actor Ernest Borgnine with a full-honors military sendo at Forest Lawn Memorial-Park and Mortuaries cemetery in Hollywood, Calif., July 14. e honor guard honored Borgnines lifetime of service and contributions to the Navy and its cause. Ernie, as you may know, loved and adored the Navy, and the sea, and all of you, said Tova Traesnaes Borgnine, the late actors wife. I know Ernies looking down on us right now and blessing all of you and all of your fellows across the world for all you do for our country, for our people, and especially for us today. After serving in the Navy for 10 years, Borgnine left the service at the end of World War II as a Petty Ocer 1st Class. Ten years later, he won an academy award for his performance as the lead in Marty. He went on to star as the title character in the hit s sitcom McHales Navy. In 2004, then-Master Chief Petty Ocer of the Navy Terry D. Scott awarded Borgnine with an honorary advancement to chief petty ocer. When Ernie was promoted to honorary chief ... there was never, of all the honors even Ernies academy award never anything that meant as much to him, said retired U.S. Navy Capt. Kathi Dugan, one of Borgnines closest friends. He had tears in his eyes. When Borgnine was making his nal arrangements, requesting military honors at his funeral was denitely his idea, said Dugan. Dugan quoted Borgnine as saying, I dont know if Ive earned [a military funeral], but I cant think of a more appropriate way for me to leave this world than with my Navy men and women. e Navy portion of the ceremony was organized by Builder 2nd Class Marco Valdovinos, the funeral honor guard district coordinator attached to the Navy Operational Support Center in Moreno Valley. Valdovinos says that his 30-member contingent of Reserve Sailors have ociated at more than 1,450 ceremonies this past scal year. is veteran has a great history of contributions to our community, to our nation and to the service, Valdovinos said. To me, its a tremendous honor. eres nothing greater for me, to be able to serve in this capacity. To render one nal salute to our fallen veteran it is just great. Borgnine thought so highly of the Navy that he asked in his will that attendants to his funeral donate to the Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society in lieu of bringing owers. One attendant from the press donated a thousand dollars that day.Navy honors Borgnine for service THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, July 19, 2012 9

Veterans Moving Forward provides veterans with therapy and service dogs and amongst the puppies they are raising to help veterans cope with various injuries is an assistance dog in training that is near and dear to our hearts. His name is Nathan, in honor of Petty Ocer 3rd Class Nathan Bruckenthal. Compass is sharing Nathans journey from birth, through his puppy years and into his nal stages of training in the series Life of a Service Dog. Enjoy Nathans story as he goes from a clumsy puppy to a focused service animal ready to serve our nations veterans. As a young pup I was told a lot about becoming a service dog, even though I really did not know what it all meant. I just gured I would understand someday. For now, I was busy having fun learning about all the new things in my life. My handler who I sometimes call my two legged mom Ill tell you a little canine secret, we call humans two leggers cause most of us mammals have four she thought it was time for me to learn a little more about my namesake, Petty Ocer 3rd Class Nathan Nate Bruckenthal. As most of you know, Nate was on a security mission near the Iraqi Khawr Al Amaya Oil Terminal in April 2004 when suicide bombers initiated a waterborne assault. He was severely wounded and later died from his injuries. He sacriced his life for his country. I was eager to learn more about him to live up to his memory. But since I cant read, my handler thought it was best for me to visit Arlington National Cemetery to introduce me to Nate. One beautiful spring day we went to Arlington. Stopping at the visitors center for instructions and directions being a boy and a dog I would not have needed directions but mom wanted directions. She got something on a piece of paper and o we went to Section 60. She picked a row and began searching the raised stones, stopping at various ones for writing that matched what was on the piece of paper. I started pulling on the leash because I knew exactly where I was going. As a young pup I was not very well versed in your human language. You see canines may not be able to read your language very well but we have some senses that humans either dont have or dont exercise very well. We read body language and can see emotion via our keen sense of smell. And sometimes we simply see other stu that is hard to explain to humans. I nally pulled my handler a couple of rows away and further into the eld of raised stones and lay next to one of the stones. Nate was here. She was not happy with my tugging on the leash and walked past me still looking at her piece of paper. She tried to get me to move, but I would not. Nate was here. She walked back to me, I looked up above the stone, and she realized we were in the right place. I had found Nate on my own. I knew this place. It was a calm, peaceful place. I have never met Nate, but I met him here. For the rst time I realized how important it is for me to carry the same strength of character, condence, sense of duty to eagerly serve (oh, thats where the service in service dog comes from) when asked, and to love and be loyal to family, friends and those that might need me. We stayed with Nate for a long time, and I was very comfortable. I told myself I would live up to Nates memory and be a proud ambassador for him and the U.S. Coast Guard. I wanted to stay, but it was getting late and we had to go. My tummy told me it was approaching my dinner time. I knew I would see Nate again and that made leaving all right. A few moments after jumping into the car I immediately fell into a deep sound sleep. Remember, us puppies sleep a lot. About a month after visiting Nate at Arlington, we were o to New York City again. I had done so well the last visit everyone thought I could go again. is time was going to be special, not just because we were going to be meeting people who would help Veterans Moving Forward, but I was going to get to meet Nate Bruckenthals father, Ric,and other members of his family. I could hardly wait. is trip to New York we took the train from Union Station in Washington D.C. to Penn Station in New York City. In the station there were people everywhere and all sorts of smells and noises, which added to my excitement. I met several nice people from Veterans Moving Forward who were traveling with me, but I was focused on meeting Nates father. I could barely sleep on the train as it rocked and rattled. Finally we arrived at Penn Station, but had to walk many blocks to the place where the gathering was taking place. When we arrived there were lots of nice people to meet, but not Nates father. We waited. We walked out to pee. I still have to say, when you are use to grass and mulch, peeing on concrete is well dierent. When we got back to the gathering we met several aunts and uncles and cousins but not Nates father. Finally, there he was. It was hard to get to him because of all the peoples legs in the way. But when I made it to him he dropped down to meet me, not like most people who lean over and pat my head. He came close to me so I could touch and smell him, that is what us dogs do to say hello. I liked Nates father from the moment I met him. He was warm and had a generous spirit. And he likes dogs. He introduced me to Pat, who also likes dogs, and soon we were all hugging and petting. It was wonderful to feel this warm embrace. Next we gathered for a photo. I got to sit right in the middle of all these wonderful people. I was so proud to be part of this family. I am the luckiest dog in the world I have a canine family, a handler and trainer family, a Veterans Moving Forward family, a Bruckenthal family and a Coast Guard family. I intend to make them all proud. e evening ended all too soon as we had to catch our train back to Washington D.C. I slept soundly all the way zzzzzzz I hope youll join me for my next story, when I share more about my training.

We are one of the rst aircraft carriers in the eet to have Navy UCASD equipment installed on board, said Lt. Cmdr. Chad Young, Trumans assistant air operations ocer. Its purpose is to communicate with the UCAS-D ight software on their unmanned aircraft. e tests aboard Truman ensured shipboard UCAS-D software was interfacing properly with the unmanned aircrafts software using a surrogate aircraft, which was a contracted King Air. ey are looking for conrmation that our systems are properly monitoring the unmanned surrogate aircraft, Young said. is testing will eventually lead to unmanned aircraft landing on and launching from U.S. Navy aircraft carriers. e software on board the King Air, an aircraft that is comparable to the Navys C-12 Huron, was modied to include an accurate representation of X-47B on-board systems. In June 2011, UCAS-D was tested aboard the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) using an F/A-18D Hornet. Were rening the system, said Lt. James Reynolds, UCAS-D surrogate project ocer with Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 23 of NAS Patuxent River. During last years tests on Ike, we found minor interfacing issues with the in-ight software aboard the Hornet, and have modied that software to be more similar to the software in the X-47B. e King Air has more room on board compared to the Hornet, so we were able to include a better model of UAV software and more accurately test the software. e NAVAIR team also tested shipboard UCAS-D software integration with Trumans Carrier Air-Trafc Control Center and primary ight control, said Reynolds. e testing went well, Reynolds said. We accomplished all of our objectives and it was a very successful detachment. [e UAV] is certainly much closer to ready for prime time than it has been in the past. Testing a new aircraft, especially one which is unmanned, is a slow process, said Reynolds. Unmanned landing near

A new sensor and software suite sponsored by the Oce of Naval Research recently returned from West Africa after helping partner nations track and identify target vessels of interest as part of an international maritime security operation, ocials announced July 10. Researchers deployed the system, called Rough Rhino, aboard U.S. aircraft, ships and partner nation ships operating in waters o the coast of Senegal and Cape Verde. Sailors and Coast Guardsmen could access and control the sensors both aoat and ashore, as well as share information in a real-time common operating picture. It provides a comprehensive maritime domain awareness picture for dark, gray and light targets-vessels that range from no electronic emissions to those that cooperatively report their name and positions, said Dr. Michael Pollock, ONRs division director for electronics, sensors and networks. Rough Rhino was responsible for nding targets during the most recent two-week African Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership operation. e primary missions are aimed at assisting and building the host nations capability to interdict and counter narcotics, human tracking and illegal shing. On any given day, the distributed intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance system tracked more than 600 targets, identied vessels of interest and culminated in 24 boardings by Gambian, Senegalese and U.S. maritime security teams. For future operations, Gambia and Senegal will continue to work with African partner nations to build and maintain maritime security and safety. Rough Rhino provided them one of the clearest maritime operational pictures that theyve ever seen, Pollock said. ey could detect, locate, quantify and conrm detailed activities of all vessels in their respective countries exclusive economic zones. AMLEP provided an opportunity to test the prototype Rough Rhino system in an operationally and tactically relevant environment, allowing designers and developers to see rsthand where the system needs improvement. e system includes radar, optics, electronic surveillance and integrated software modied and developed by ONR contractors and the Naval Research Laboratory. e system was installed on the Naval Research Laboratorys VXS-1 P-3, USS Simpson and Senegalese ships SNS Poponguine and SNS Djiere. e unique aspect to this project is how the research directly supports an ongoing operation and how we can immediately ingest operator feedback Pollock said. He added that the software is constantly rewritten annually from the ground up to keep up with changing technology, sensor improvements, and eet and operator needs. To date, the system has participated in ve major operations, including AMLEP 2011 and 2012. Participants particularly liked the systems ease of use, requiring little training, and clarity, as well as its information storage and retrieval abilities, which can be used to support after-action reviews and legal prosecutions. AMLEP is a joint mission conducted by the U.S. Africa Command, U.S. Naval Forces Africa, U.S. Coast Guard Atlantic Area and multiple West African navies and coast guards. AMLEP is the operational portion of the Africa Partnership Station initiative in which African navies employ their professional skill, knowledge and experience to combat crime at sea. Since 2007, the U.S. Navy has worked alongside African partner navies and coast guards through a series of APS training events and regional exercises to improve maritime safety and security Additionally, operations such as AMLEP provide participants with numerous opportunities to operate together and develop productive relationships through real-world situations.
