Federal 100: Edwin "Bruce" Farnham

Name: Edwin "Bruce" Farnham
Title: Program Officer
Aeronautical Mobile Application Architecture
Agency: National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

A data-driven wingman. As a pilot himself, Farnham has a unique perspective and personal interest in finding ways to make military pilots as safe as possible. To that end, he has enhanced the Defense Department's use of data to ensure pilot safety and expanded the amount of data the Aeronautical Mobile Application Architecture program collects. Under his management, the program now includes secure high-bandwidth cloud storage and a mobile app that gives pilots maps of flight routes and refueling options. And as one colleague noted, Farnham makes himself available "seven days a week to listen, answer questions and solve problems."
