Speaker: moderator, Carl E. Hager IV
Meeting Date: September 23, 2021
Time: 8am to 9:30am
In addition to our expert speakers, we are proud to have as our moderator, Carl E. Hager IV, an Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) Senior Engineer with the E3 Test & Evaluation Branch, at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, Virginia. Mr. Hager is responsible for leading various Science and Technology (S&T) projects focused on improving current E3 test and measurement techniques through decreasing measurement uncertainty, applying statistical analysis methods, standardizing assessment methodologies, and evaluating the emerging shipboard Electromagnetic Environment (EME). He received the IEEE EMC Symposium Best EMC Paper Award in 2014 and 2015 for his papers entitled “On Modeling Wireless Radio-Frequency Energy Propagation in Below-Deck Ship Spaces” and “Maximum Received Power Statistics within RF Reflective Enclosures for HERO/EMV Testing”, respectively. Mr. Hager received the 2020 Naval Warfare Centers Innovation Award for developing and implementing a novel approach that characterizes the likelihood of radio frequency overexposure affecting personnel during helicopter landings on the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78). He has significant experience with Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO), Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Personnel (HERP), Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), Complex Cavities, and Reverberation Chambers. Throughout his career as a Department of Defense Navy civilian, he has had SCIF experience working in/around facilities secured for military sensitive information, to include Confidential, Secret and Top Secret classification levels. His current research interests include statistical electromagnetics in applications such as complex cavities and probability-of-effect assessment methodologies specific to applications to electromagnetic compatibility testing, electromagnetic environment characterization, and deployment of Navy systems.
