Rear Adm. Kenneth Slaght on Sept. 14 officially assumed the duties of vice commander of Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. In his new role as vice commander, Slaght will likely play a major role in the development and fielding of major information systems such as Navy/Marine Corps Intranet and IT-21, as well as in steering the command through a planned restructure.

Slaght has served since Dec. 1, 1997, as the Spawar chief engineer, a position requiring him to provide "the technical and engineering definition, direction and focus for Spawar programs to ensure that the information solutions fielded by the command meet the requirements and expectations of the warfighter," according to Slaght's biography posted on the command's Web site.
