   The Armament Graduate School at Picatinny Arsenal was established to develop personnel who are broadly trained and well - versed in armaments engineering and research . No comparable institution with such a specialized curriculum is believed to exist . In the most recent graduation ceremony , Master of Armament Engineering degree certificates were presented to , from left , Kevin E . Tevis , Mario J . Rivero and Logan S . Bagarozy . The fourth graduate , Brian M . Colotti , was unable to attend . The graduates are with the U . S . Army Combat Capabili......ties Development Command ( DEVCOM ) Armaments Center . PICATINNY ARSENAL , N . J . – During its seventh graduation ceremony , the Armament Graduate School here added not only four new names to the growing roster of graduates but also furthered a commitment to retain specialized armaments knowledge for the benefit of a stronger , enduring national defense . The largest organization on the installation , the U . S . Army Combat Capabilities Development Command ( DEVCOM ) Armaments Center , plays a vital role in the research and development of more than 90 percent of the Army ' s armaments and munitions . While the traditional academic dress of participants at the Oct . 13 ceremony may have evoked comparisons with similar civilian ceremonies , the significance of the ceremony at Picatinny was starkly shaped by the opening remarks of Anthony J . Sebasto , the Acting Director of the Armaments Center . Sebasto reminded the audience that the Armaments Center’s slogan of “Always a Step Ahead” serves as a reminder that the center’s mission is to keep American armaments unequalled . “Consider the consequence if we were just a step or two behind … . or we weren’t quite as good as our enemies , ” Sebasto said . “In short , it would be really bad - - bad for Soldiers , bad for the missions and bad for the nation . ” “There are workplaces where what the employees do has incredible significance , real - world consequences , and this is one of those places , ” Sebasto added . Later in the ceremony , Master of Armament Engineering degree certificates were presented to Logan S . Bagarozy , Mario J . Rivero , and Kevin E . Tevis . The fourth graduate , Brian M . Colotti , was unable to attend . The new graduates join 29 previous master’s grads and two previous Ph . D . grads . The Armament Graduate School received statutory authority to grant graduate degrees from the U . S . Congress and President . AGS is undergoing an accreditation review by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education , its federally designated accrediting authority , and by the U . S . Department of Education . Col . F . John Burpo , a professor and head of the Department of Chemistry and Life Sciences at the U . S . Military Academy at West Point , delivered the commencement address . As a mechanical engineering cadet at West Point , Burpo recalled tours of both Picatinny and Watervliet Arsenals . “What I did not fully appreciate at the time , ” he said , “is that small army of professional scientists and engineers who worked so hard to develop many of the platform technologies that I would later use during my time in the operational Army . ” Burpo pondered whether , given its importance , research and development should also be considered one of the domains of warfare . “In every possible nuance , R&D is an ongoing steady state , strategic - shaping operation , ” Burpo said . “It is the daily manifestation of warfare that allows Soldiers like me to enter the fight with a technological advantage and win . ” Burpo noted that the research and development personnel on each side of opposing armies are engaged their own struggle to outperform their counterparts . “Our collective efforts in the lab , test chamber , demolition range … represents a daily fight between scientists and engineers as to who can prepare their militaries for future fights , ” he said . “When we conclude today’s ceremony , our graduates will … return not just to a job but to the fight , slow and deliberate as it may be . It will require all your talents to both innovate and lead in real time , to set the conditions for future fights . ” The Armament Graduate School has 66 faculty who work for the Armaments Center as scientists , mathematicians , and engineers . Two of them , George Fischer and Laurie Florio , were recognized with the first presentation of the Chancellor’s Award for Exemplary Faculty Service . The recipients were selected by Donald E . Carlucci , senior research scientist in computational structural modeling at the Armaments Center , who also serves as the graduate school chancellor . Fischer was recognized for several achievements , including his role as a critical member of several core courses , active participation in several faculty committees , and never missing an opportunity to improve the educational experience of the students . Fischer was further cited for working constantly to improve the school’s function as well as the quality of life for students , faculty , and staff . Florio was one of the original faculty members and instrumental in the development of courses in advanced math , thermal - fluid science , and computational fluid dynamics for armament systems . She was also noted for her energy and versatility as an instructor , as well as always striving to improve the educational offerings of the school , the learning environment , and the stature of the Armament Graduate School in the scientific community . The Armament Graduate School was established to support the Armaments Center mission by developing personnel who are broadly trained and well - versed in armaments engineering and research . No comparable institution with such a specialized curriculum is believed to exist . The Armament Graduate School’s graduate - level curriculum is unique in that it integrates chemical , electrical , software , systems , biomedical , and mechanical engineering disciplines while encompassing statistics , applied mathematics , material science and scientific methods . The Armaments Center at Picatinny Arsenal is part of the larger U . S . Army Combat Capabilities Development Command ( DEVCOM ) , which reports to the Army Futures Command .
