Congratulations MG (Ret) Nick Justice

The NCMBC congratulates Major General (Ret) Nick Justice on his selection as Executive Director for PowerAmerica. Located at NC State University, PowerAmerica’s mission is to develop advanced manufacturing processes that will enable large-scale production of wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors, which allow electronic components to be smaller, faster and more efficient than semiconductors made from silicon.

MG Justice retired, after a 42-year career, from the United States Army. His assignments included service as the Commanding General, US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD.

MG Justice was the keynote speaker at the 2013 North Carolina Federal Advanced Technologies Review (FATR) in Raleigh, NC. Since retirement, he has actively participated in several NCMBC industry-related events and ongoing initiatives, primarily including the FATR and NCMBC co-hosted advanced technologies quarterly meetings with federal Science & Technology Advisors at Fayetteville Technical Community College. These half day events allow the Science and Technology Advisors to receive in-depth briefings on technologies being developed and initially presented by NC businesses at the annual FATR.

MG Justices’ contributions to these NCMBC initiatives have been invaluable. The NCMBC looks forward to working with MG Justice in his new capacity at PowerAmerica to advance technology, expand businesses and grow jobs in North Carolina.

Dr. Schuette is the Director of Research at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) in Arlington, VA. As the senior civilian responsible for Research at ONR, he oversees the basic and applied research investments which increase fundamental knowledge, foster opportunities for breakthroughs and provide technology options for future naval capabilities and systems.

CONFIRMED LUNCH PANEL: Data vs. Gut: Using Analytics to Improve Decision Making

The way decisions are made in the military is rapidly changing.  In the past, critical decisions were based on instinct and experience because data was not always accessible, usable or complete.  Today, defense organizations are taking advantage of the abundance of data available to drive better outcomes.  Using data analytics to move from a reactive approach to one that is proactive and predictive, is bringing value to the way the Department of Defense (DoD) and its component services operate.  Join the Institute for Defense and Business (IDB) and SAS for a lunchtime panel discussion to hear more about using data analytics to inform better decision making across DoD.
