U.S. Navy SSC Pacific (SPAWAR) Organizational History
StratComm holds a contract with the U.S. Navy SSC Pacific (SPAWAR) to author a manuscript documenting its technological and organizational history.
Recounting events from SSC Pacific’s history in chronological order from the organization’s beginnings during the time of World War II through present day and into the future, the manuscript describes the technological advances the organization has made, along with its evolution in terms of personnel and organizational structure. In researching the manuscript, we have spent considerable time at SSC Pacific facilities in San Diego interviewing personnel past and present and searching archives for information.
With contributions from these and other sources, we have crafted a compelling narrative that, through the eyes of key figures in its history and rich descriptions of key events, captures the essence of that organization’s growth and describes its importance to U.S. Armed Forces and national defense through the years.
I have worked with StratComm on this project for over a year now and I am very glad we chose them to be the author of this work. First and foremost, the author is an excellent writer. His prose is a pleasure to read. I have been the one to review each chapter as it is submitted as a part of the contract and have enjoyed this task and look forward to each subsequent submission. He writes in an interesting a lively manner, making our past come alive and deftly working it in with the military and geopolitical history of the time.
As we are primarily a science and engineering command for the Navy, much of the work we've done in the past 75 years is technical in nature. The writer has been able to synthesize information given in interviews with our leading scientists and engineers into an accurate and readable synopsis of their work and accomplishments. He is a quick study and was able to grasp the important aspects of a very wide variety of technical work. His interviews of our technical staff have been professional and thorough. He takes editing suggestions well and has made modest changes to the manuscript when we felt that a different element of our work should have been the focus. We are completely satisfied with StratComm's work.
