Admiral Addresses Situational Awareness Needs

In January, the chapter held its monthly luncheon at the Peterson Air Force Base Club. Highlights of the luncheon included the presentation of the AFCEA Scholarship for Veterans of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom to Kendall Robinson in the amount of $2,500. After lunch, the guest speaker, Rear Adm. Thomas H. Hank Bond, USN, director, command and control systems and director of cyberspace operations (J6/J3D), North American Aerospace Defense Command and United States Northern Command, provided an informative presentation on the need for situational awareness and decision support systems to provide visual/perceptual cues in addition to traditional analytics. Adm. Bond laid out a compelling case that decision-making is improved when the visual/perceptual side of the brain is engaged along with the analytic/verbal side by drawing on research in neuroplasticity, cybernetics and Gestalt psychology.
