By Brittney Brown, I3C2

Project Manager (PM) Installation Information Infrastructure Communications and Capabilities (I3C2) welcomes its newest Assistant Project Manager (APM), Capt. Nicole Meruvia. Capt. Meruvia, who came on board in early September, leads the Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) Mission Planning (DCOMP) program.

Operating within the DCO Cyber Analytics and Detection (CAD) portfolio, DCOMP supports core operational success of the Army’s Cyber Protection Teams (CPTs) by providing software solutions that anchor mission planning and execution. Among these solutions is PhalanX, a command and control platform that operates from a tactical to strategic level. PhalanX builds a common operating picture of a network environment and integrates all of the warfighter’s cyber tools into a common interface.

DCOMP delivers platforms like PhalanX by partnering and leveraging relationships with industry. The program has instituted ongoing collaborative industry events to acquire innovative solutions from the cyber community. Capt. Meruvia will be the PM’s key sustaining those relationships, and ensuring capability is delivered to CPTs at the speed of relevance.

“We’re excited to have the wealth of knowledge and experience Capt. Meruvia brings to our team. I’m confident in her ability to help our team achieve ongoing success, and serve as an active liaison between the PM, industry, and our stakeholders,” said Col. Harris.

Capt. Meruvia joins PM I3C2 from the Acquisition Program Management Office, National Guard Bureau where she served as the Assistant Service Portfolio Manager. The APM is a native of Columbia, Missouri, and has 20 years of military service. In addition to her military career she has seven years of experience as a civilian Senior Business Process Analyst with Lockheed Martin. Capt. Meruvia holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from University of Central Florida, and a Master’s in Business Administration from Marymount University.

“My strategy for accomplishing the DCOMP mission is to work closely with my team, stakeholders, and other DCO counterparts to produce the most scalable, secure warfighting capability in support of Defensive Cyberspace Operations Mission Command,” said Capt. Meruvia. “I look forward to a chance to excel, while empowering the team to achieve mission success.”

Capt. Meruvia took on the APM position following the departure of her predecessor, Maj. Shakena Evans. Maj. Evans is now fulfilling a new assignment with the National Guard Bureau in Arlington, Virginia.
