CDCA Sponsors Cane Bay High School “Viper Drive” Robotics Team to National Level Finals

Congratulations to Cane Bay High School’s Team 3490 Viper Drive for being ranked among the top 10%, of robotics teams to compete in the 2016 season. More than 6,000 teams registered for the 2016 season and Team Viper Driver was one of 600 robotics teams to advance to the FRIST Robotic World Championship in St. Louis, Missouri! After the team endured the 15 hour bus ride, they woke up early for a team meeting and continued working on strategy for the competition. The team attended different workshops and learned about many different aspects of great team practices and world events surrounding robotics. They attended the Innovation Fair where they observed some of the newest and most advanced technologies and organizations available, as well as received information from Scholarship Row.

SPAWAR commander releases 2016 strategic plan

Story by Tina Stillions
SAN DIEGO - In support of his seven-year vision launched last year, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Commander Rear Adm. David Lewis released his strategic execution plan 2016 on Friday, Jan. 22.

Outlining SPAWAR's role as the Navy’s cyber systems command, the strategic plan aligns closely with the CNO’s revised “Cooperative Strategy for the 21st Century,” an imperative to strengthening naval sea power and global information warfare systems, creating a “top-down” effort in which everybody must contribute.
