Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) Chief Engineer for Trusted Microelectronics Brett Hamilton was issued a patent on Jan. 26 for an invention developed to help the Department of Defense (DoD) identify counterfeit microelectronic parts.
CRANE, Ind.— Dr. Adam Razavian’s career with the federal government came full circle this month when he departed from Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane), which first employed him in 1989. His last day at the warfare center was Feb. 4 and Razavian said although he was sad to leave an organization he called home for many years, he is excited to face new challenges at aerospace and defense company General Dynamics.

Razavian’s family has lived in Bloomington during both of his tenures at NSWC Crane and he plans to keep a home in the town where both of his sons were born. Razavian and his wife Monica will move to Virginia for his new position as director for integrated mission systems and his younger son will attend Northern Virginia Community College to study law, while his older son will continue pre-medical studies at Indiana University.
“Our roots are pretty deep here. I’ll be coming back all the time,” Razavian said. “It’s been an absolutely fantastic journey and I wouldn’t want to finish my career with the federal government any other way than at NSWC Crane. I was not necessarily planning to leave but the opportunity just opened up and after 28 years it makes sense for me to do this. There’s a lot of personal challenge involved in doing the same things I do for the government over in industry instead.”
