MITRE’s Center for Technology & National Security, created to enhance MITRE’s engagement with senior government leadership, has named five national security officials to its newly established advisory board.
Board members will help guide the center’s efforts to provide the nation’s military and intelligence leaders with data-driven research, analysis and insights.
The advisory board includes:
- Retired Gen. John Campbell, former vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army
- Lisa Disbrow, former undersecretary of the U.S. Air Force
- Retired Adm. Bill Gortney, former commander, U.S. Northern Command
- Retired Vice Adm. Bob Murrett, former director, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
- Bob Work, former deputy secretary of defense
The center builds on the experience and expertise of thousands of America’s most revered scientific and engineering minds, said Bill LaPlante, senior vice president for the MITRE National Security Sector.
“MITRE has provided trusted national security solutions for more than 60 years. CTNS gives us another way to apply our unique, unbiased vantage point and technical skills to support defense and intelligence communities with bold, innovative solutions as they face adversaries and environments that are more challenging than ever,” LaPlante said.
