Lead scientist for magnetic sensing and buried mine identification at NSWC Panama City, Fla., Dr. Ted Clem was recognized with the 2010 Capt. Robert Dexter Conrad Award for Scientific Achievement. Clem is one of the Navy's premier experts in the field of magnetic sensing as it applies to the detection of underwater mines, unexploded ordnances and underground facilities.
Consisting of a medal and a citation signed by the secretary of the Navy, the award is named in honor of the primary architect of the Navy's basic research program and former head of ONR's Planning Division. It acknowledges outstanding contributions in the field of research and development for the Department of the Navy.
An ONR employee for 35 years, Marguerite Bass was also recognized during the ceremony, receiving the James M. Greene Award for Outstanding Dedicated Service.
