  1. LGS Innovations CEO Kevin Kelly Discusses DARPA Undersea Network with C4ISRNet,

    Share:

    Military planners say they are making headway on a means to quickly restore tactical data links, should they become disrupted.

    Through the Tactical Undersea Network Architectures (TUNA) program, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) seeks to develop a rapidly deployable undersea network. The agency says a first phase drew promising ideas from a range of heavy-hitting vendors, and it expects to wrap up solicitations in January in anticipation of further developments and practical demonstrations.

    Phase I brought together a veritable who’s who of military contractors, with participation from Raytheon BBN Technologies, Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation Information Sector, LGS Innovations, Harris Corporation, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, among others.

    LGS Innovations fell into this group of vendors, looking specifically at ways to make a cable that would be neutrally buoyant — that is, a cable that would float in the water at any given depth.

    The company ultimately came up with a fiber slightly larger in diameter than a human hair. Effectively, it’s a glass tube doctored with rare-earth minerals that are amenable to conducting light without distortion, then encased in nylon and Teflon and Kevlar to strengthen it, to keep it from stretching or bending or getting severed. “But the real engineering is in placing the right amount of air bubbles in all of that mixture, so that you get something that floats,” said LGS’s CEO Kevin Kelly.

    Complex challenges aren’t for the faint of heart. They require diligence, creativity and most of all, passion. For many, that passion is life long.

    “Each of us remembers that critical moment when our interests were fueled by the passion of a teacher, family member, or friend,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “We chose to sponsor WashingtonExec’s STEM Symposium this year because it is designed to reach the pre-college age students who are passionate about STEM, or may be considering a career in STEM. Our hope is to use the WashingtonExec STEM Symposium as a way to pass that passion on to the next generation of bright minds.”

    More than 3,000 students, parents and teachers are expected to attend this year’s event, presented by LGS Innovations.

  3. How to grow a new idea: The LGS Innovation Initiative,

    Share:

    Unlike most of our competitors, LGS Innovations actually invents things and builds them into the mission solutions we offer our defense, intelligence, and commercial customers. So, with “Innovation” in our company name (and our DNA, thanks to our Bell Labs ancestry), it’s not surprising that LGS has come up with some proven ways to create new ideas for products and solutions that address our customers’ hardest problems.

    We call one of these proven idea-creation programs the LGS Innovation Initiative. Here’s how it works:

    • We start with Spark Week, an open forum for team members to submit any ideas for solutions our customers might need, from ground-floor technology to improvements on existing solutions
    • Following that, the participants pitch their ideas to LGS R&D and program managers (kinda like Shark Tank, but friendlier) and the ideas and participants are selected for the next phase
    • Selected teams gather for a week-long intense session called the Innovation Summit for some serious idea development, design sprinting, and presentations to senior management
    • One or two ideas are then funded for further development

    Flavor throughout with a start-up mentality, and voila: at least one or two new ideas for further development and productization.

    This January, we held the LGS Innovation Summit in Las Vegas, concurrent with the 2017 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Maybe it was all the innovation on the exhibit floor, or maybe it was something in the Las Vegas water—but all four solution ideas proposed at the Summit were approved by LGS management to go forward.

    We can’t say much about these projects, other than that they’ll involve absolutely cutting-edge science and technology to address some very critical needs our customers face in RF photonics, big data analytics, 4D sensor fusion, and Internet security.

    Do you have a passion for innovation? So do we. Learn more at www.lgsinnovations.com.
