Mr. Luna has over twenty-five years of combined experience in law enforcement and military intelligence operations. This experience has addressed support to law enforcement operations as a criminal investigator and explosives technician, and also support to Department of Defense (Army) operations as weapons technical intelligence expert in the counter improvised explosive device (C-IED) line of operation. As a DOD civilian employee, Mr. Luna’s military technical intelligence experience included work for the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Joint Warfare Analysis Center (JWAC), and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA); and as a contractor with the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC), Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC), and the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization (JIDO). This experience focused on the application of advanced engineering concepts to threat characterization, sensor collection and data fusion, modeling and simulation of target systems, and risk assessments for both force protection (protect sets) and offensive targeting operations.
Mr. Luna’s most personally rewarding career activities in direct support to the warfighter include embedded support to deployed units under Operation Iraqi Freedom (Task Force Troy) and Operation Enduring Freedom (Task Force Paladin) with the Counter Insurgency Targeting Program (CITP) sponsored by NGIC. This experience was essential to understand military operational requirements and the critical role of supporting analytical elements contributing to mission success.
Mr. Luna’s most recent projects with JIDO Operations Research and System Analysis (ORSA) Division include organizational performance/effectiveness assessments and operational assessments of C-IED capability solutions that requires the application of decision analysis, systems engineering (test and evaluations), data fusion, and visual analytics methods.
