"I taught high school Physics for five years after graduation, and then was offered a job at a company doing Indications and Warning development and analysis (evaluation of an adversary’s technical capabilities based on observable phenomena) for the Department of Defense (DoD). In 1986 I was offered a job with MITRE, a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC).  An FFRDC is an organization that assists the United States government with scientific research and analysis, development and acquisition, and/or systems engineering and integration.   In my time at MITRE I have lived in Germany and traveled throughout Europe designing and building highly secure facilities for the processing of classified information in support of the US Military on NATO facilities, worked with the US Army and DoD in efforts to catalogue multi-spectral signatures of various land- air- and sea-based targets, and am currently managing a team of engineers in the design and deployment of secure video teleconference suites." -Vogt
