April 15, 2016 FCW.COM 33 MICHAEL ERNST Director of RHIC and ATLAS Computing Facility Brookhaven National Laboratory Energy Department Bigger-than-big data. Ernst oversees U.S. participation in a 30-nation, high-energy physics consortium that analyzes data col- lected by the Large Hadron Collider in Swit- zerland. “Big” doesn’t accurately convey the scope of the data involved. The level of computing that Ernst’s group conducts is unprecedented: The project’s current dataset is about 200 petabytes and involves moving 2 million files a day. To avoid slowdowns, Ernst spearheaded the consortium’s transi- tion to Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud, and the ATLAS solution has become a model for the international science world. EDWIN “BRUCE” FARNHAM Program Officer Aeronautical Mobile Application Architecture National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency A data-driven wingman. As a pilot him- self, Farnham has a unique perspective and personal interest in finding ways to make military pilots as safe as possible. To that end, he has enhanced the Defense Department’s use of data to ensure pilot safety and expanded the amount of data the Aeronautical Mobile Application Architecture program collects. Under his management, the program now includes secure high-bandwidth cloud storage and a mobile app that gives pilots maps of flight routes and refueling options. And as one colleague noted, Farnham makes himself available “seven days a week to listen, answer questions and solve problems.” JOHN FELLEMAN Senior Innovation Specialist General Ser vices Administration The acquisition fixer. Felleman brought agile development and a user-centered focus to bear on the development of GSA’s Acquisition Gateway in 2015. The portal offers federal contracting professionals a wide range of information — including market research, pricing data and expert articles — in a dynamic, social environ- ment complete with voting and “following” other users. Felleman modeled the use of agile methodology by the government and contractor teams, introduced product ownership concepts and wrote user stories instead of business requirements. And he directly linked user feedback to new fea- tures to maintain the gateway’s relevance. HAO-Y T. FROEMLING Director Program Management Division Office of Intelligence and Analysis Transportation Security Administration Department of Homeland Security Making PreCheck possible. Froemling is responsible for an array of security threat assessment programs at TSA, but it has been the rapid expansion of the agency’s PreCheck security enrollment process where she has shown extraordinary leader- ship and organization. The program was initially only intended for Global Entry and airline frequent flyers, but TSA decided it needed its own enrollment process to meet extraordinary demand and tapped Froem- ling to lead the charge. Given only months to pull together a highly technical, highly visible program, Froemling harnessed a team of agencies, airline companies and airports to get the expansion done. BRIG. GEN. PETER A. GALLAGHER Director of Command and Control, Communications and Computer Systems U.S . Central Command U.S. Army Wired for battle. Gallagher is in charge of the global computer network underpinning U.S. Central Command. The fight against the Islamic State has changed how the military communicates, and Gallagher has been at the forefront of that change. He and his team have used data center virtu- alization to help manage mission networks and, in doing so, capitalized on nimble communication structures to give the military eyes where it doesn’t have boots, saving time and money. Gallagher’s impact will be long-lasting: Future networks will be able to spring up quickly to support soldiers worldwide. MICHAEL ERNST EDWIN “BRUCE” FARNHAM JOHN FELLEMAN HAO-Y T. FROEMLING BRIG.
