In his Program Management role he led the SRNL team that serviced the needs of DoD organizations to include the development of technology, field deployment of technology and assets to national level nuclear response activities, and the utilization of Savannah RIver Site assets (personnel and facilities) to provide DoD units with realistic nuclear training venues and the utilization of “live rad agent” in training.
