In its most recent Executive Spotlight interview, ExecutiveBiz spoke with Vincent DiFronzo, senior vice president of the Air Force and COCOM business unit at Science Applications International Corp., about his career transition from the military to defense contracting, as well as the company’s work on the Weapon Engagement Simulation Technology for Advanced Research program under a U.S. Air Force contract.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with DiFronzo discussing the WESTAR program:
“This is similar to the work we have done for the Missile Defense Agency where we model current and future weapons and architectures to help design the best weapon systems technology will allow. We’re very excited about that work and the potential synergy between that and our other areas of expertise that we focus on.
For AFRL part of our work is modeling hypersonic weapon systems, whereas for MDA we model hypersonic defenses. These are the most modern weapons available in the market and it’s great to have the opportunity to work with the most advanced technology.”
