Network Science Center : CDT Ellis Valdez

CDT Ellis Valdez 
is from Waterford, CA and is a member of the USMA Class of 2015. He is the 2nd oldest of four brothers in his family, and the first to become involved in the military. He is an Information Technology major and hopes to become a Military Intelligence Officer upon graduation. He first came involved with the SCARE project when his freshman IT instructor CPT Ryan Tate, a member of the project's officer team, invited him to attend an informational meeting about the project. From there, he went on the work on the project for three weeks during the summer of 2012. He was a part of the initial testing team where he focused on correcting issues with SCARE's code in order to successfully complete an accurate run-through. Today, he still works as a tester for the program as it is currently being incorporated into another existing program (Davito) which originates from the Post-Naval Graduate School in Monterey, CA. He hopes that his tests will ensure that the SCARE program will help to enhance Davito so that the combined programs can be used by soldiers currently combating IED's in Afghanistan.
