SpringBoard organizes tour of Naval Surface Warfare Center Lab for California Law Enforcement officials
Juneau, Alaska (March 14, 2012) – Four representatives from the Orange County Sheriff's Office and one representative from the Anaheim Police Department, received a tour from the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Corona Division Laboratory in Seal Beach, California last week. The tour was initiated and arranged by SpringBoard Technology Associate, Dan Hubert, to assist the law enforcement agencies with exploring the possibility of contracting the Navy to perform calibration and repair of their communications equipment.
Both the Orange County and Anaheim law enforcement agencies are involved in managing, repairing, testing, and developing radio-communications equipment for their respective organizations. The Navy lab has expertise in repairing and calibration of such equipment, so this tour could lead to future collaboration between the various agencies.
A similar but completely separate tour was conducted in late January for two representatives of the Los Angeles Sheriff's department at the NSWC Corona Division Lab.
As a partner of the US Department of Defense, SpringBoard's purpose is to develop partnerships that result in transfer, commercialization and transition of technologies developed by DoD laboratories and private industry, and support and facilitate K-16 educational programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
