Chief Warrant Officer Tim Panek
Chief Warrant Officer Panek currently serves as the Technical Services Manager in the Industrial Operations Division (IOD) at the Aviation Logistics Center (ALC) in Elizabeth City North Carolina, providing Engineering Support to 11 industrial shops responsible for overhaul, repair, manufacturing and reverse engineering of aircraft components for the H-65D Dolphin, H-60T Jayhawk, C-144A/B Ocean Sentry, C-130H/J Hercules and C-27J Spartan Aircraft.
A native of Highland NY, CWO Panek attended recruit training in the summer of 1998 and graduated as an Aviation Maintenance Technician from the USCG’s Aviation Technical Training Center in the fall of 2000. He served as a Power Plant Mechanic, Quality Assurance Inspector, Flight Evaluation Board Member and Flight Engineer on the C-130H and J aircraft. His assignments include the USCGC Kennebec, two tours at Air Station Clearwater, and two tours at Air Station Elizabeth City before being assigned to ALC in June of 2016.
Doug Greenwood, Additive Manufacturing Lead, Fleet Readiness Center East
Doug began working in additive manufacturing in 1990 when it was called rapid prototyping. For six years he worked as the Southeast representative for Laser Prototypes, an SLA service bureau. Doug was then recruited to work at Square D/Schneider Electric in Raleigh where he worked to upgrade their CAD systems from 3D wireframe to parametric based assembly modeling. He was also responsible for the installation of two SLA machines as an internal SLA service bureau serving Schneider Electric global design activities. Doug joined 3D Systems in 2001 shortly after the company acquired DTM Corporation. He worked as an Applications Consultant supporting and training SLA & SLS customers. He joined Fleet Readiness Center East in 2008 and currently serve as the Additive Manufacturing Lead for the Advanced Technology IPT. Doug is also a member of the SAE Polymer Additive Manufacturing Committee and am co-chair of the Data Review Working Group on the recently formed CMH-17 Non-metallic Additive Manufacturing Committee. In 2018 he was recognized with a Distinguished Innovator Operator (DINO) award at the Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) 2018 Conference.
