GovConJudicata Weekly Debrief (1/29–2/2)

This week's Weekly Debrief covers NIST's semiconductor R&D competition, Blue Origin's orbital transfer vehicle, Space Force's first Guardian in space, NIH's EHR modernization, and CYBERCOM's new leader.


  • "The National Institute of Standards and Technology released a notice of intent Thursday for an open competition on digital twins for semiconductor manufacturing, packaging and assembly."


  • "Blue Origin is highlighting the capabilities of an orbital transfer vehicle design it announced last year, including the ability of the spacecraft to serve as a fuel depot. The company publicly announced last October its Blue Ring vehicle, which it described as providing a wide array of “in-space logistics and delivery services from Earth orbit to cislunar space and beyond. The company had been hinting about development of a space tug for at least a year before the announcement."

  • "NASA astronaut Nick Hague will be the first Space Force Guardian to launch to the International Space Station. Hague, who flew twice to space with the U.S. Air Force and NASA before being transferred to Space Force, was named to the SpaceX Crew-9 mission Wednesday (Jan. 31) for an expected International Space Station (ISS) launch in August."


  • "The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is planning to replace its decades-old legacy Electronic Health Record, and looking at how a new EHR could help accelerate its use of artificial intelligence tools. NIH’s Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, the nation’s largest hospital devoted entirely to clinical research, is looking for a replacement for the Clinical Research Information System (CRIS), its EHR that’s been in place for more than 20 years."


  • "Gen. Timothy Haugh assumed command of U.S. Cyber Command and the National Security Agency during a ceremony at Fort Meade on Friday, taking the reins from Gen. Paul Nakasone, who is retiring as the longest-serving Cybercom chief after six years in the job."
