Supported commands from Naval Support Facility (NSF) Indian Head presented "reports to the community" at the quarterly Naval Support Activity South Potomac (NSASP) Community Relations Council meeting at the town of Indian Head's Village Green Pavilion on Aug. 2. The council brings together military leadership from NSASP installations in Dahlgren and Indian Head with local leaders; from the town of Indian Head and Charles County on the Maryland side of the river, and the town of Colonial Beach and King George County on the Virginia side. The meeting complimented the previous meeting of the COMREL Council, when community leaders were briefed by military leaders from Dahlgren-based commands. Capt. Pete Nette, commanding officer of NSASP, welcomed guests and thanked the volunteers who helped serve breakfast, before turning over the podium to Dennis Scheessele, mayor of the town of Indian Head. "Things are looking forward for the Town of Indian Head," said Scheessele. "We're looking to bring visitors into the town to ride the Indian Head Rail Trail and get visitors who are riding the rail trail into town to visit our busi-

Scheessele highlighted many projects underway in the Town of Indian Head designed to do just that, including rail trail plaza on theVillage Green with a picnic pavilion and public restrooms. A trail connecting the Village Green and the Indian Head Rail Trail is also in the works. Scheessele also announced that a study has been commissioned to

measure the pros and cons of the proposed Potomac River Commuter Ferry. Candice Quinn Kelly, president of the Charles County Board of Commissioners, took center stage next and praised the regional collaboration facilitated by the COMREL. "Without a regional approach, we are certainly going to make no progress," she said. "For that reason, we really

embrace COMREL." Kelly announced that Charles County approved its fiscal year 2013 budget and noted how both military and civilian leaders continue to face tough funding decisions as a result of the recession. "We did approve our fiscal year 2013 budget," she said. "We were very proud as a board of commissioners to commit $100,000 to the Indian Head Defense Alliance. We're committed to this base." The community around NSF Indian Head has been keeping tabs on the budget cuts facing the Department of Defense and Kelly touched on what will be a major factor in any future Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process. "Obviously encroachment is an important piece of that and that's where our meetings and our regional approach are so important," said Kelly. Maryland's Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012, more commonly known as the Septic Bill, is designed to limit some types of land development through a tiered land use system. County leaders will consider the current and future needs of NSF Indian Head as the law is implemented, said Kelley. "How we grow, how we project, how we want to see our county look in 20

Rotary comes to King George and Dahlgren The world's first civic service organization, Rotary International (RI), is expanding into the King George-Dahlgren area. The King George-Dahlgren Rotary Club has reached provisional status and will be chartered by Rotary International in September. The Club will join RI's global association of 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. The club's Service Project Committee led by Roger Carr, an engineer with Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) and owner of Everyday Giving, is conducting a community needs assessment to determine the most effective ways the club can make a positive impact in the community. The club also plans to present a club award to recognize one or more local citizens who have contributed significantly to the community. Service projects currently being planned by the new King George-Dahlgren Rotary Club include a reading room project to supply Sealston Elementary School with much needed scholastic reading books to be used by the school's 780 students throughout the school year. Club members are also looking to participate in the Adopt a Highway program to clean a two-mile stretch of road somewhere in the

local area four times annually. Local Rotarians are also looking forward to participating in this year's King George Day of Caring event on Sept. 28 to complete a local service project. Other personnel with NSWCDD who are active in the club include Chuck Davidson as president-elect, Joe King who as chair of the Rotary Foundation Committee, and Anne Lyon who is a member of the Administration Committee. The King George-Dahlgren Rotary Club joins Rotary's global network of volunteers in enhancing communities and promoting international goodwill through club projects, scholarships, cultural exchanges, and grants for development and humanitarian projects. Don Mohr, representative for the Rotary District Governor said, "Rotary was founded over 100 years ago in Chicago, and now its influence can be felt around the globe. Rotary's achievements provide an inspiring record of men and women of all races, religions, nationalities, and creeds who have made significant contributions to create a more peaceful world."

Two of the Navy's surface warfare centers responsible for chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) warfare agent detection have partnered together in an effort to streamline processes and reduce total ownership costs, Naval Surface Warfare Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) officials announced Aug. 2. The partnership transfers all CBR detection services from Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Ind., to NSWCDD, which provides technical, engineering, test, evaluation, maintenance and logistics support to the Fleet after installing the CBR detection systems. "Our partnership with NSWC Crane to transfer the acquisition and in-service engineering work associated with chemical and biological detectors is significantly reducing the Navy's total ownership costs," said NSWCDD's CBR Defense Division Head Mike Purello. "This is not only providing opportunities for us to better support the warfighter at Dahlgren and on the waterfront but it's also enabling our scientists and engineers to look for the most efficient ways to support potential next generation detection systems." Prior to the consolidation, the Navy built and designated a new laboratory to streamline CBR defense work and accrue savings to help fund other required chemical and biological defense projects. Since its

lowed engineers to perform diagnostics, overhaul, testing, and subsequent calibration

required to provide systems and equipment to the Fleet. The new laboratory also allowed NSWCDD to apply for a naval radioactive materials permit necessary to maintain, store, stage and track all of the Navy's chemical detectors that contain radioactive sources. Navy Radiological Affairs Support Office (RASO) approval is expected by March 2013. Currently, NSWC Crane holds the only permit. Once obtained, the permit will give Dahlgren the ability to receive and ship the Improved Point Detection System and other detection equipment containing radioactive sources from its laboratory, which is expected to yield maintenance and cost savings from fiscal year 2013-2017. Meanwhile, NSWCDD engineers' request for an exemption of the Improved Point Detection System - Lifecycle Replacement (IPDS-LR) permit requirements over the lifecycle of the new detection equipment was approved by RASO. IPDS-LR - which is replacing the IPDS currently installed on most Navy ships - is designed to quickly alert warfighters to the presence of chemical warfare agents, and is being installed on 35 ships in 2012. The Navy plans to install the new system - designed to quickly alert warfighters to the presence of chemical warfare agents - on all active guided missile destroyers and cruisers, aircraft carriers, large and small deck amphibious ships, littoral combat ships and dry

Using process improvement to enhance logistical savings Overstocking, delivery delays for CAD/PAD components eliminated through efforts of Indian Head Division's Lean Office By Mike Welding NSWC IHD Public Affairs For decades, the Cartridge and Propellant Actuated Device (CAD/PAD) Joint Program Office (JPO) for Naval SurfaceWarfare Center, Indian Head Division (NSWC IHD) has tracked and processed all of the CAD/PAD devices used in military hardware systems throughout the Department of Defense. In the past, the logistics for CADs and PADs underwent a modernization process that resulted in significant savings for the Navy through the adoption of a global sustainment system called Virtual Fleet Support (VFS). Prior to that, commands that used CAD/PADs tracked these devices locally and projected their potential needs months in advance. It was an inefficient and labor-intensive process that resulted in the overstocking of CADs/PADs. Recently, Naval Air Systems Command's Precision Strike Weapons Program Office (PMA-201), the management activity for these devices, and the CAD/PAD JPO felt they could find additional savings tracking CADs and PADs. They reached out to NSWC IHD's Process Improvement (Lean) Office to find more savings through aValue Stream Analysis (VSA). According to Dr. Martin Chernoff, NSWC IHD Lean Office'sVSA facilitator, a joint team comprised of employees from NSWC IHD, the JPO, and several other affected organizations, discovered that the VFS process for drafting, approving and implementing Systems Change Requests (SCR) and Data Change Requests (DCR) was inefficient and lacked an effective method of prioritizing and tracking work. "TheVSA team mapped out the change request process that highlighted how numerous emails are sent to multiple parties without a clearly defined flow and approval process," Chernoff said. "This resulted in too manyVFS email messages that were not relevant to the party receiving them." The joint team also implemented an automated tool developed by NSWC IHD's CAD/PAD Division VFS Branch to streamline the SCR and DCR processes. The new process will prioritize tasks and reduce rework by disciplining the email noti-

fication process. Emails will only notify relevant parties when an action is necessary or the interested parties actually need the pertinent information. SCR and DCR status will be available for any authorized user to look up in the system. Ultimately, the VFS team estimates they will complete more than 15 percent more change requests with the same amount of resources. CADs and PADs have several applications. Most are mission-critical components used in emergency escape and safety systems, or as a means to supply energy for the release of weapons from aircraft. Tracking CADs and PADs is a major undertaking. Experts in escape system mechanics, parachute rigging, ordnance and maintenance management track over 550,000 installed explosive parts on different systems. More than 90,000 of these devices get replaced and over 200,000 get expended each year. VFS has been a vital tool used to handle the logistics for all of the CADs and PADs used by the Navy, Air Force and more than 26 allied nations using CAD/PAD devices. Its automated processes, elimination of paperwork, and real-time access had major impacts on product delivery and cost reductions. When the JPO adopted VFS, it gave them a means to provide their customers with justin-time logistics. At its inception,VFS was projected to provide a variety of benefits. Through reduced labor demands on Fleet personnel working with CAD/PAD devices aboard ship and at worldwide air and weapons stations, VFS eliminated 100 work years of unnecessary labor annually. According to Lee Manis, CAD/PAD Deputy Assistant Program Manager for Logistics, VFS saves the Navy several thousands of dollars every year through changes in behavior. "People used to stockpile items based on potential perceived needs," he said. "WithVFS we have much better visibility, and we can procure items to fill an immediate need." Karl Lehman, CAD/PAD Logistics Branch Manager, said the improvement in delivery time has more than doubled. "In the past, it used to take 90 to 120 days for our Fleet customers to get their CADs/PADs," he said. "Now it takes less than 14 days."

COMREL: Sharing the COMREL mission with the local community Continued from page 1

facets, in terms of protecting the role and the missions of [NSF] Indian Head."

Report to the Community

Dennis McLaughlin, technical director of Indian Head's largest supported command, the Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Division (NSWC IHD), discussed his organization's mission and future prospects. "We are the Center of Excellence for DoD for energetics," he told the audience. "Energetics are things that have a lot of energy in them.We define energetics as explosives, propellants, pyrotechnics and the things that go along with them such as rockets, fuses, chemicals and fuels, and in particular, torpedo fuel. We are the only place in the nation that is authorized to make torpedo fuel for our country and for 26 allied nations." McLaughlin provided the numbers from the most recent activities of NSWC IHD. "Of all formulations that have gone into weapons systems since 1985, [70 percent] have come from Indian Head." That energetics excellence has manifest most recently with improved rocket launchers, energetic materials, grenades and a test kit that helps the operating forces identify the improvised explosives used by enemies. "We've been able to reverse-engineer exactly what they're doing and how they're doing it," said McLaughlin. McLaughlin also talked about his organization's work providing servicing and propellants for the ejection seats of all U.S. military aircraft, along with those of allies. "We're very proud," he said. "We've saved hundreds of U.S. pilots and several allied pilots as well. Members of NSWC IHD also serve the community, said McLaughlin, providing support for educational outreaches, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, 4-H and MENSA. NSWC IHD recognizes employees who give back to the community with the Capt. H. Lackey award. Capt. Thomas Smith, commanding officer of Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NAVEODTECHDIV), began his presentation with a video depicting a real-life account of how his organization saves the lives of service members with the most dangerous role on the modern battlefield. In it, a Navy bomb disposal team uses a robot to remotely inspect a suspicious feature along a road in Afghanistan. The suspicion was well-founded: a hidden bomb exploded and though

the robot was destroyed, the service members survived unscathed. "That was a pretty big IED," said one of the EOD technicians in the video. "I hate blowing up robots, but at least it wasn't one of us." The crowd was impressed. "Globally, we fielded and managed engineering and repairs for over 2,500 man-portable small and medium-sized robots to EOD warfighters, globally," said Smith. "Some of [those robots] are no longer around, but that's a good thing. It means that's one more EOD technician who is around." Smith detailed how since the 1970s, the Navy and NAVEODTECHDIV has managed EOD technology development for DoD. NAVEOD TECHDIV supports thousands of EOD technicians in every branch of the service, a mission NAVEODTECHDIV employees take personally. "Our motto is 'keep them off the wall'," said Smith, in reference to the memorial wall for EOD technicians at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. "Per capita, if you look at the casualty rate, the EOD specialty has the highest casualty rate, bar none." Capt. Jason Gilbert, commanding officer of the Naval Ordnance Safety and Security Activity (NOSSA), told community leaders about the role his organization plays in keeping service members safe. "From cradle to grave, we look after the Navy and Marine Corps' interest in safe [ordnance]," he said. "From how it's handled, to how it's stored, how it's constructed." The NOSSA mission encompasses procurement and evaluation of ordnance-related combat systems in an increasingly joint operating environment. "We work a lot with our sister services when it comes to explosives safety," said Gilbert. "We [also] promulgate guidance for explosive safety." Like all of the activities hosting onboard NSF Indian Head, NOSSA employees are active in the community. Gilbert highlighted members of his command who serve several community interests, such as conservation work and diversity initiatives. "It's nice to be part of the community and nice to be involved," he said. The Naval Sea Logistics Center (NSLC) Indian Head Detachment mission is an information technology mission, said Lynn Kohl, executive director of NSLC. "[We are] the central design agent for all maintenance and logistics systems in the [Naval Sea Systems Command]," she said. "We are basically a bunch of logisticians and information technology specialists."

Capt. Thomas Smith, commanding officer of the Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division, briefs local leaders at the Naval Support Activity South Potomac Community Relations Council meeting Aug. 2. That mission involves helping the Fleet prepare its technical resources for deployment. "One of the

biggest things we do in our command is, we program, write, administer, update and maintain all the information

technology that makes all the moving parts fit together," said Kohl. Many NSLC Indian Head Detachment employees support the Boy and Girl Scouts, Lions Club, science fairs, elections and church activities in their off time and a few give back to the community on stage. "We have lots of folks who are actors with the Port Tobacco Players," said Kohl. The Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) also has an information technology-related mission. "JITC is in existence today to reduce the risks faced by warfighters in the field," said Christopher Watson, National Capital Region liaison officer for JITC. "We work very closely with all the combatant commanders during field exercises, as well as operations contingencies." Watson detailed his organization's broad mandate. "We are the designated joint interoperability certifier for all systems in the field that are characterized as either information technology, or national security systems in accordance with joint staff and [Office of the Secretary of Defense] policy," he said.

While accomplishing that vital mission, JITC employees stay active in the community, supporting local animal shelters and the La Plata Fall Festival. Leaders from the Chemical Biological Incident Response Force (CBIRF) were unable to attend the COMREL due to mission obligations, but Nette presented a report to the community outlining some of the command's activities. "Their mission is to save lives," said Nette. Rotating CBIRF teams are always on standby to respond to any chemical, biological or radiological threat across the world. CBIRF recently accomplished missions supporting convention events in the United States and Operation Tomodachi, the humanitarian response to the 2011 tsunami in Japan. "In closing, I'd like to thank the Town of Indian Head for hosting and Commissioner Kelly for your kind remarks," said Nette. "It's important to take away that commands at NSF Indian Head are strategic, supporting current and future operations. They all have military value."
