Peter Anderson

Chief technology officer

Computer Systems Center Inc.

Springfield, Va.

Customer: Defense Department

How the customer benefited: Anderson led efforts that resulted in a trusted information infrastructure for the Defense Department. The infrastructure allows different parts of DOD to use a common network without sacrificing security. They can access and process information as if each were using a separate, independent classified network.

What makes him a leader: The process of building and certifying the trusted information infrastructure took several years. Anderson took two years to compile more than 800 user requirements and 1,800 operational user requirements. These requirements were the foundation of the infrastructure. Anderson also worked with four companies, three DOD agencies and three other countries to build a laboratory integration and test environment. The work led to the creation of the Coalition Warfighter Integration Demonstration, which tested and demonstrated the concepts behind the Coalition Secure Management and Operations System. The system is now being used in Afghanistan for secure information sharing.

He also helped his company grow by more than 47 percent since 2001 and reach nearly 200 employees.
