Intelligent Waves (IW​) of Reston, VA announced on July 9 it has promoted John Hammes as its new chief strategy officer.

As chief strategy officer, Hammes will widen IW’s expertise, experience, and road-mapping in support of its clients in the defense, special operations, and Intelligence Community through asymmetrical solutions that accomplish mission-critical operations in cybersecurity, systems integration, and C5ISR.

Jared Shepard, CEO of Intelligent Waves LLC, stated, “We are excited to promote John Hammes, a trusted and proven leader, to this critical position at the nexus of planning and executing our growth and expansion.” Shepard added, “We are confident that John Hammes’ tenacity and unrivalled ingenuity will directly impact IW’s journey to smarter, more secure, responsive, and innovative solutions that our discerning clients demand and deserve.”

Hammes served for over 12 years in U.S. Army Special Operations Command and served in the 112th Signal Battalion and 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta. He brings over 20 years of hands-on proven experience to Intelligent Waves, including the coveted institutional knowledge of operating and managing high-impact programs in the most demanding and austere military IT environments. Hammes is recognized within defense and IC sectors for his ability to think outside the box to direct a broad range of IT innovations.

Recently, Hammes oversaw the successful rollout of IW’s GRAYPATH (GP), the next-generation solution for expeditionary communications. Through its patented IP Spread Spectrum technology, GP leverages the cloud to randomize and distribute message packets through the simultaneous use of multiple transport paths and encrypted channels. GP algorithms optimize throughput by continuously sensing and adjusting the message flow according to channel availability and bandwidth capacity creating a smoother connection even for HD video transmissions. As a result, GP lowers the risk of detection and interception and is nearly impervious to disruption.
