A retired ARL civilian who began his career at APG with the former Ballistics Research Laboratory in the 1970s, current defense contractor, is the vice-president of the Aberdeen Proving Ground Centennial Celebration Association. He graduated from the University of Dayton with a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Worked at the BRL research center in the Launch and Flight Division.
While working in the computational arena, Nietubicz was offered a one-year assignment to the NASA Research Center at Moffett Field in Mountain View, California. He spent the year there working with the world’s foremost experts developing computational capabilities for projectile designs and analysis and was able to bring that knowledge back to BRL. When the U.S. Army Research Laboratory was formed Nietubicz went to work in the lab’s Weapons & Materials Research Directorate in the Aerodynamics Branch. He was then assigned to the Pentagon to the office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition Logistics and Technology, ASA (ALT). He then was asked to come back to ARL and work as the Chief Advanced Computing and Computational Sciences Division, and later as the Director or ARL DOD Supercomputing Resource Center. Currently, he works part-time as a high-performance computing research leader with Battelle and a principal engineer with the Energetics Technology Center.
