  • 1. R. Neches Full CV 06/2012Robert Neches Director, Advanced Engineering Initiatives, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Research & Engineering) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Systems Engineering), US Department of Defense Research Associate Professor, USC Computer Science Department (On Leave, 2011-2012)Education Ph.D. Carnegie-Mellon University, 1981 Cognitive Psychology (Thesis Title: Models of Heuristic Procedure Modification) M.S. Carnegie-Mellon University, 1977 Cognitive Psychology B.A. UC San Diego, 1976 Independent Studies in Artificial Intelligence and Education Technologies (Bachelors Thesis Title: Intelligent Educational Dialogue Systems)Technical Interests Information Technology: Distributed software systems engineering, information management, human-computer interaction, computer-supported cooperative work, resource management, decision-making and decision support. Technology and policy: Enablers for cost-effective and efficient delivery of services, resilience of social, physical and technological systems. Government and civilian applications of methods from command, control, computing, communications and intelligence: New concepts of operation utilizing information technology to enhance effective situation assessment and decision making, applied in both traditional operational settings (military operations, national intelligence, homeland security) and non-traditional operational settings (design, systems engineering, manufacturing, health systems and services, enterprise management).Professional History 1/11- Department of Defense, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (ASDR&E) - Washington, DC Director of Advanced Engineering (salary $199,861) Responsible for DoD-wide planning and coordination of all science and technology programs bearing on conceptualization, design, production and testing of complex cyber-electro-mechanical systems, including FY13-22 definition and planning for Engineered Resilient Systems, designated by the Secretary of Defense as a top science and technology priority, worth approximately $450M/yr over 60 programs. Responsible for program planning for approximately $110M in funds in FY12-16 Presidential Budget plans, directly administered through ASDR&E. 1

Neches Full CV 06/2012 7/97-12/10 USC Information Sciences Institute – Marina del Rey, CA Director of Collaborative Systems and Research Associate Professor ( 6/2010 - 12/2010) Computational Systems and Technology Division (salary $199,861) Special assignment to develop new directions and new business in decision support, forensic computer security, and computational social science Director and Research Associate Professor (6/2000 - 5/2010) Distributed Scalable Systems Division (final salary $199,861) Recruited, trained and managed researchers in planning and scheduling, decision support, extremely large-scale information management, and cybersecurity; maintained a group size of 14-20 and funding between $2- 4M on an annual basis throughout this period. Defined novel concepts of operation for technology applications in military operations, maintenance and logistics, intelligence, education, and healthcare Ran a research and development effort on planning and scheduling technology which went from research proposal to fielded prototype aircraft operations and maintenance system (i.e., from Technology Readiness Level 1 to Technology Readiness Level 6) in under five years, producing a spin-off company, a positive Military Utility Assessment from the US Marine Corps, and technology transitions to the USMC and the Joint Strike Fighter Program. Established award-winning coordinated multi-agent planning efforts which outperformed conventional technologies by margins of 60-80% in over 97% of test cases independently defined and evaluated by DARPA Senior Project Leader for Distributed Collaborative Enterprises / Research Associate Professor (7/97 - 9/2000) Enterprise Integration Systems Division Wrote the founding charter for the Division At request of DARPA, led GeoWorlds, a consortial effort of the top ten projects of the DARPA/NASA/NSF Digital Libraries Initiative, producing one of worlds first integrations of Geospatial Information Systems and the World Wide Web 1994-1997 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency – Arlington, VA Program Manager Handled program definition, technical/financial plans, project selection and management Managed DARPAs Planning & Decision Aids program, refocusing it toward plan repair/adaptation and collaborative planning. Initiated technology transfer to USTRANSCOM. Selected and funded new efforts worth over $24M. Co-developed DARPAs Advanced Logistics Program on concurrent control of military operations and logistical support, leading program definition of technology and demonstrations in supply, procurement, and 2

Advised the Defense Logistics Agency on creating its first R&D program, valued at $40M, and negotiated and managed its coordination with DARPA investments Managed elements of the Human-Computer Interaction, Agile Manufacturing, and Intelligent Integration of Information programs, valued over $25M. Moved all three programs toward focus on network information access and composing separate research results into a comprehensive system. 1982-1994 USC Information Sciences Institute – Marina del Rey, CA Project Leader / Research Assistant & Associate Professor (7/86 - 6/94) Intelligent Systems Division Established the 8-person INtegrated User-Support Environments (IN- USE) research group on individual and collaborative information management systems, emphasizing reusable component technology. Efforts included basic work on knowledge-based systems, intelligent interfaces and collaboration, as well as applied work on intelligent logistics and electronic commerce. Maintained a funding stream between $1-2M/year throughout this period. Wrote winning proposals obtaining approximately $5M of funding for e- commerce work performed in a separate USC ISI division, enabling founding of the second operating e-commerce service in the country (FASTXchange), which won awards for support of Operation Desert Storm and is now among the oldest e-commerce businesses still in operation. Led the ARPA Knowledge Sharing Effort, a consortium of over 20 academic, industrial and government R&D centers developing tools and protocols for sharing and reuse of knowledge-based systems. A strong example of high leverage in research funding, with a budget ranging between no more than $150-200K/year over three years, the effort produced recommendations on knowledge representation languages, reusable ontologies, and agent communication languages which have since been cited in over 500 academic papers. Research Computer Scientist, Software Engineering (8/82 - 6/86) Researched, developed and demonstrated a paradigm for maintainable expert systems capable of explaining their reasoning steps. Developed and published some of the earliest work in the field on friendly, object-oriented computing OSs, tested via adoption and operational use of advanced email and collaboration aids by ISIs software engineering staff. 3
