Good Morning San Diego Profiles SSC Pacific

For 70 years, SSC Pacific has been a part of the San Diego community. Yet some of our neighbors may not know what we do for the U.S. Navy. Local television station, KUSI, spent a few mornings with us during "Good Morning San Diego" and showcased why we're the premier research, development, test, & evaluation (RDT&E) laboratory for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR).

While our labs are chartered to solve problems for our sailors, many of our technologies find use outside of the DoD. For example, the RAPid Image Exploitation Resource (RAPIER) project can scan images from satellites and quickly detect wildfires that endanger our communities, Composeable FORCEnet can facilitate the identification of pirate ships, and our work in the communications sector has led to interoperable communications for First Responders.

Advanced research is still at our core. We've been building a sea water antenna, creating an Advanced Global Navigation Simulator, looking at cryogenic exploitation of radio frequency, building unmanned, semi-autonomous systems, and exploring ways of interacting using the motions of our eGlove.

Of course, none of this innovation could be possible without a strong foundation of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). To ensure the future of STEM disciplines, our Educational Outreach program partners with local school and promotes interest in STEM for the next generation of scientists and engineers.
