Colonel on the Future of ISR

The March luncheon featured Col. Patrick Shortsleeve, USAF, commander of the 497th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Group, Langley Air Force Base. He spoke on the future of ISR and capabilities of the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS), and he highlighted improvement areas that ensure this critical asset remains an indispensable contributor to the effective application of military power. The chapter also recognized the inaugural launch of its Adopt-A-School STEM program, which began with two schoolsóLindsay and Tabb middle schools. Maj. Rolando Aguirre, USAF, program lead, board of directors, joined local industry partners to present checks to each of these schools. This program would not be a success without the unwavering commitment of industry partners that support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The chapter also supported the 62nd Annual Tidewater Science and Engineering Fair held at Old Dominion University. This year, it provided $1,900 in cash awards and seven volunteer judges.
