Career Background:

A retired major general, Casciano left the Air Force in 1999 as director of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in charge of all Air Force ISR and information warfare capabilities. He capped off his 33-year career as the service's senior intelligence community official, including oversight of the Air Intelligence Agency and the Air Force Information Warfare Center. He joined Litton TASC in 1999.

What do you see as your first order of business for Litton TASC?

For TASC's new Enterprise Security Strategic Business Unit, the first challenge is to form the team and develop a shared vision and road map for the future. Our people have world-class capabilities in cyber and physical protection and information operations, and a track record in delighting our customers. These clients are some the best protected organizations in America.

What is the biggest change for you going from the Air Force to the private

Coordinating my wardrobe after 32 years in uniform. Seriously, it was quite easy in making a transition to Litton TASC, which has the same values of integrity, service and excellence as "my" Air Force.
