Last week, the Government Matters team attended the Surface Navy Association’s 34th National Symposium, “Surface Warfare: The Competitive Edge.” At the conference, Mimi Geerges spoke with some attendees who are paving the way for innovation and advancing the Navy’s mission.

  • Lt. Skye Pawlik from the Naval Integrated Fires Element in the U.S. Navy said her organization’s primary mission is to enable over-the-horizon targeting for Navy shooters, which involves collecting and processing signal data to provide target-quality tracks to shooters so they can employ their weapons at range.
  • Thomas Van Leunen, director of congressional and public affairs for the Military Sealift Command, said his organization operates ships throughout the world, providing sealift and supporting U.S. and allied combatants with food, fuel and bullets at sea.
  • Stefanie Lamay, public affairs specialist for the Naval History and Heritage Command, said her organization is the Navy’s institutional memory, keeping track of everything the service has done, including lessons learned, archives, shipwrecks, imaging and deck logs.
