Rear Adm. Kenneth Slaght on Sept. 14 officially assumed the duties of vice commander of Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command.

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.
