Jason Dauby, a subject matter expert with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division from Crane, Ind., has received the 2010 INCOSE/Stevens Doctoral Award from the International Council on Systems Engineering. Dauby was honored for his research in systems engineering and integration. The award was presented earlier this month at the annual INCOSE International Symposium in Chicago.
Dauby’s research, conducted as part of his Ph.D. program at Missouri University of Science and Technology, focused on the development and use of the Canonical Decomposition Fuzzy Comparative (CDFC) approach as a stable, repeatable and analytically rigorous architecture assessment method. It provides a more realistic and objective assessment of physical system architectures.
“I am honored to receive this award from such an esteemed organization,” says Dauby. “Hopefully this research aids in the successful development of advanced systems for the Warfighter.”
Through his research, Dauby is trying to increase objectivity, defensibility and fidelity in systems architecture assessment. His work could advance the state of practice, as suggested by its early adoption in current Department of Defense (DoD) studies. Several elements of the CDFC methodology are also being used by systems engineers at NSWC Crane.
“This award recognizes Jason’s knowledge and expertise and is a testament to his hard work and dedication,” said Dave Kuhlman, Airborne Electronic Attack Systems Division manager. “His research is already far-reaching and will continue to have an even greater impact on systems engineering and development.”
Dauby has worked at NSWC Crane for more than eight years as a radio frequency (RF) systems engineer, specializing in physics-based modeling and technology development. His experience includes the use of model-based analysis and design throughout all phases of various Air, Ground and Maritime-based electronic warfare programs.
