He is also responsible for developing and implementing the Ingalls Strategic Plan and actively participates in the Ingalls internal research and development program. His background is in ship technology development and application and in electrical engineering. Mr. Brooks has been with Ingalls since 1982. He held positions in the Ingalls Aegis shipbuilding engineering and program office organizations in Mississippi and in Washington, D.C. He received two individual awards for excellence in shipbuilding during this time and holds one ship design patent. Previously he was an employee of the Space Physics Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan. Mr. Brooks received a BSEE from the University of Michigan in 1982. He is a member of the American Society of Naval Engineers, the Surface Navy Association, and the Naval Studies Board.
Daniel S. Cieslowski has been a private consultant since retiring from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, two and a half years ago. He earned his BME at Catholic University and has also taken postgraduate classes at American University, George Washington University, and Catholic University in engineering and management. He began his federal career at the Carderock Division as a naval architect, worked as the hydrofoil coordinator for hydromechanics, and then became branch head, Special Systems Branch. Mr. Cieslowski progressed to assistant to the department head for Exploratory Development and then to head of the Ship Dynamics Division. He retired as assistant to the directorate head for Operations at Carderock. Mr. Cieslowski's regular duties and areas of responsibility included seakeeping, maneuvering, stability, and control of naval surface ships, submarines, and craft. His programs addressed characterization of the ocean environment, dynamic evaluation of advanced ship types, design and evaluation of submarine control systems, and vehicle/control system integration. His technical efforts ranged from basic research into vehicle dynamic behavior to the design of trainers for full-scale implementation of control concepts. He was responsible for implementing Navy policies and for planning technical and managerial initiatives in his Division. He has served with ASME, the American Society of Naval Engineers, and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers and is a member of Tau Beta Pi.
Donald M. Dix is a consultant to Center for Naval Analyses and the Institute for Defense Analyses. Previously he held positions at the Office of the Director of Defense Research and Engineering, Department of Defense, first as staff specialist for Propulsion (1981-1990) and then as director (until 1999). He has received the Airbreathing Propulsion Award from the AIAA, the Exceptional Civilian Service Award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and an OSD award for Excellence. Dr. Dix received his SB, SM, and ScD in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Thomas T. Huang is principal scientist-hydrodynamics (1998-present) for Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. His professional interests are in ship hydrodynamic design, computational and experimental fluid engineering, viscous flow, cavitation, and hydroacoustics. Dr. Huang received his BS in agricultural engineering from the National Taiwan University, his MS in mechanics and hydraulics from the State University of Iowa, and his PhD in applied physics from the Catholic University of America. Dr. Huang has more than 35 years experience in various aspects of hydrodynamics, beginning with his work at the David Taylor Model Basin in 1968. He served as senior research
