11:39 a.m., Sept. 24, 2009----The University of Delaware's Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships brought together personnel and resources from across UD to participate in the 2009 C4ISR Joint Symposium and Expo held in Atlantic City, N.J.
C4ISR (Command and Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) is a major Army directorate that, because of the Department of Defense's Base Relocation and Closure (BRAC) process, now is headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground in nearby Maryland.
“The partnership we're developing with the Army touches all units at the University and the expo gave us the opportunity to display the strength of cooperation between departments, student support services and research centers,” said David S. Weir, director of the Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships.
C4ISR is an important part of the University's Army partnership, which includes initiatives in education, research, internships and job opportunities for students.
More than 2,000 people attended the symposium and expo.
Representing UD were faculty and staff from OEIP, Professional and Continuing Studies, the Bank of America Career Services Center, the College of Engineering, the College of Health Sciences and the Center for Composite Materials.
