Quality Laboratories specializes in a software engineering methodology known as clean room development to create very highly reliable code.

Engle has been working with DISA to find a new head honcho at AJPO but none has been named yet.

The Defense Department has named Karen Cole an automation clerk with the Fort Rucker Ala. Directorate of Community and Family Activities as its 1996 Outstanding Employee With a Disability.

The Army said Cole was honored for her "20 years of exceptional civilian service and continuing dedication and service to the community."

Born without arms Cole has learned to use her feet as her hands. Cole spends her off hours as a volunteer with the Hospice of East Alabama where she works with terminally ill patients.

Lt. Gen. Jay Garner formerly commander of the Army Space and Strategic Defense Command has taken over as assistant vice chief of staff.

In his new job Garner will have responsibility for developing and articulating Army requirements and will also serve as the service's representative on the Joint Requirements Oversight Council.

Lt. Gen. Edward Anderson relieved Garner as head of the Space and Strategic Defense Command. Anderson previously served as assistant chief of staff for operations and plans for force development.
