SAN DIEGO — Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) Commanding Officer Capt. Mel Yokoyama and Executive Director Bill Bonwitt presented a plaque and multiple tokens of appreciation to electrical engineer and Jamul resident Bradford Humphrey for his 60 years of service to the federal government during a Jan. 12 ceremony.
Following 17 years of active duty in the Navy, Humphrey transitioned to civil service where he successfully applied his expertise in electronics engineering and project management to many major projects throughout the Center. His credits include 22 years in Japan at the Navy Electronics Engineering Activity as project engineer, technical director and Engineering Department head, accomplishing a variety of Communications, Command and Control, Security Group, and Intelligence Command projects.
"I am very grateful to the Navy for the opportunity afforded to become an electronics engineer,” Humphrey said. “It has been my extreme good fortune in civil service to work with so many dedicated professionals in service to the defense of the United States."
Asked what the future holds in store for him, Humphrey says he has no plans to retire just yet!
A landmark naval research facility in San Diego for more than 75 years, SSC Pacific is comprised of over 4,700 scientists, researchers, and engineers, and is a member of an exclusive team of research labs that make up the Department of Defense’s biggest brain trust.
