FCW : October 30, 2013
36 October 30, 2013 FCW.COM Rising Stars build a plan of action to combat cyber enemies. "The methodology really takes the military planning process for operations planning and translates it into the cyber world," she said. "So in traditional operations plan- ning, most of it is done around a map or around physical objects, and in cyberspace, you don t necessarily have all those physi- cal objects or a terrain map as the background for the planning. So we developed a methodology for how you do that in cyberspace." --- Reid Davenport Rebecca Schwartz Much of Rebecca Schwartz s cutting-edge nanotechnology research at Lockheed Martin is classi ed, but her work is generally geared toward developing techni- cal solutions to reduce the physical burden of troops in combat. It is part of a larger vision she holds of increasing situational awareness for war ghters while making their equipment smaller, lighter and less power-hungry. She manages the funding of her research and development projects and has provisional patents for solutions based on her ideas. In short order, Schwartz took her divi- sion s rst nanotechnology pursuit from concept to a potential real- world application. As she works to support the Defense Department, she is also helping grow nanotech- nology as a business at Lockheed Martin. "Not only are we looking to advance technology solutions to reduce the burden for war ght- ers --- one of the biggest problems for them today --- but we re look- ing at strategies...and interfacing with customers to get feedback and really understand what their challenges are," Schwartz said. "I m proud seeing a lot of innovations we re coming up with that are truly things that will help our custom- ers and keep them safe. We re all about the soldiers, and we re there to provide technology they need to do their missions." Schwartz has been at Lock- heed Martin for two years, and the projects she leads often have turnaround times about that long, though some extend for ve and even 10 years. So although she can t talk about it in detail now, American war- ghters might well display and use some of her nest work in the near future. --- Frank Konkel Michael Shrader A 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle would intimidate most people, but for Michael Shrader, assembling one is probably an hour s worth of fun. Shrader, vice president of the innovative and intelligence solu- tions team at Carahsoft, instinc- tively understands how things t together. His colleagues say he has an almost preternatural ability to understand what federal IT users are looking for and nd technology to ll that need. Shrader manages Carahsoft s efforts to help small, emerging technology manufacturers do business with the government. He supervises a portfolio of more than 50 companies that provide cutting- edge solutions to intelligence, Defense Department and civilian government agencies. "Mike has the ability to look at something very quickly and discern if it is real or legitimate or whether something should be pursued or not," said Al Di Leonardo, presi- dent and CEO of HumanGeo, a company that provides analysts to the intelligence community. Under Shrader s direction, emerging technology companies get a boost in their efforts to crack into federal business. They are added to Carahsoft s General Serv- ices Administration schedule with no upfront fees, granted access to the company s other contract vehi- cles and given dedicated resources to showcase their technology to government users. As a result of Shrader s work, the intelligence community is using an intelligence analysis framework from Thetus that provides the building blocks for the agencies to more effectively and securely develop and connect their mission architectures. --- Mark Rockwell
