"When our launch date was moved up we realized that we needed more horsepower to develop and deliver software tools critical for science commissioning of the Kepler Mission shortly after launch. Normally, identifying and hiring a qualified software developer takes several months. Also the spin-up time required for a developer to become fully productive in Kepler's unique, custom-built Science Pipeline normally takes several months. We had no time to waste, and Hicks Consulting helped us identify and hire qualified software developers in record time. Hick's Cherie DeWees worked with us to understand the skill set and teamwork attitude we were looking for. We delivered all the launch-critical software on time to support launch and commissioning in no small part thanks to the two personnel that Hick's brought on board our team."

The Navy SEAL Foundation invites you to participate in the 2014 Navy SEAL Tribute Celebration on September 26th-28th at Half Moon Bay Golf Links course and Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay.
As frequent deployments continue and the injuries mount, your help is vital, and needed now more than ever to continue the programs and services of the Navy SEAL Foundation, which is funded by events like the SEAL Tribute.
The U.S. Navy SEALs are a highly trained and heavily employed fighting force forward deployed in over two dozen countries on any given day. Many have upwards of five to seven deployments since our country was attacked on September 11, 2001, and their families have learned to accept that they'll be away more than they'll be at home.
We can all play a part; your involvement is essential, and more than ever we need your commitment.
