September 2021 Meeting

AFIO Meeting
September 18, 2021, 2:00 p.m.
Brick Store Museum, Kennebunk, ME

The National Security Agency (NSA) is the subject for the Maine Chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence   Officers’ (AFIO) Speaker Program September 18th. The speaker will be Dr. Thomas Willeman describing his work experiences within the Agency and will include the “air gap” between research and operations.

Dr. Willeman will be referencing his memoir (Working on the Dark Side of the Moon of which 15% was redacted by NSA) of an employee and contractor with a sense of humor and the hope that his experiences will create others to “add their brains to the fight.” Also included will be comments about the kinds of people he worked with and the general nature of their work at NSA.

Dr. Willeman graduated from Princeton as an electrical engineer and statistician with a BSE, earned a PhD from MIT and has taught at MIT and Harvard; and, he is Professor Emeritus at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is now co-founder of Smart Software in Belmont, Massachusetts.

This is the latest in a series of discussions relating to the importance of Intelligence in current public affairs. The AFIO meeting is open to the public, and will begin at 2:00 p.m. at the Program Center of the Brick Store Museum, 4 Dane Street, Kennebunk. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
