On June 27th Captain Dennis Evans took command of the United States Coast Guard Research and Development Center in a formal ceremony. According to the news release:

The Change of Command Ceremony is a time-honored tradition that formally restates to the officers and personnel the continuity of the authority of the command. It is a total transfer of responsibility, authority, and accountability from one individual to another.

The Research & Development Center supports the Coast Guard, the Department of Homeland Security, other U.S. government agencies, and the world’s maritime community with the latest technologies available for Search and Rescue, Law Enforcement, maritime safety, environmental protection, and ports, waterways, and coastal security. The Research & Development Center’s everyday mission ensures each Coast Guard unit has the equipment, training, and policies necessary to fulfill the service’s ever-expanding set of missions.
