Klemm, in his role with the Navy, provides technical direction and oversight in all the areas of shipboard and airborne electronic support (ES) and electronic attack (EA) technologies and systems. These technologies and systems cover the electromagnetic spectrum encompassing the communications (RF), microwave (RF), millimeter wave (MMW), infrared (IR), electro-optical (EO) frequencies.

Gilman has served over 24 years as an Engineer and FA57 simulation operations officer and brings experience with operational assignments, including Combat Engineer Platoon Leader and the modification and development of virtual environment. His previous assignments include: USARCENT G37 Chief of Training and Exercises, Shaw AFB, SC; TRADOC Capability Manager (TCM) Virtual & Gaming, Fort Leavenworth, KS and more.

Grayson leads the office of Strategic Technology in development of breakthrough technologies to enable warfighters to field, operate, and adapt distributed, joint, multi-domain combat capabilities at continuous speed. These technologies include sensing, communications, and electronic warfare technology and the supporting tools and decision aids needed to compose, integrate and operate complex combat architectures.

In today’s changing landscape, businesses and government must stay informed on processes and the advancements within research and development. Maintaining state-of-the-art technology is essential for organizations to maintain authority within the defense sector.
