A DoD/DHS comms makeover; gov/industry collabs; Navy CIO Weis departs

From West 2023 in San Diego, CA, sponsored by Carahsoft and Infoblox.

The Defense Department is part owner of the effort to modernize the “Public Safety Communications Ecosystem.” It shares that work with the Department of Homeland Security. Sridhar Kowdley is Program Manager in the Office of Science and Engineering… in the Science and Technology Directorate at the Department of Homeland Security. At West 20-23, he laid out the interoperability challenge his office is working on.




The Defense Department’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) is just one example of how the services are trying to get joint right, technologically. Chris Usserman is Director of Security Architecture at Infoblox Federal. At West 2023, he tells me there are several focuses he sees ahead for military technology.





The Chief Information Officer of the Navy is leaving his post. Federal News Network reports Aaron Weis’s last day on the job will be March 17th. At West 20-23, Weis tells me the same thing he told his team in an email announcing his departure: his goal is to leave the Navy in better condition than he found it.
