Sim office gets new chief

Army Col. Jerry Glasow became the new director of the Defense Modeling and Simulation Office earlier this month.

Glasow, who replaces Air Force Col. Michael L. Finnern, served as the deputy director for requirements of DMSO since last July. Finnern, who had headed the office since March 2003, retired this month.

'My vision for DMSO is overcoming barriers to [modeling and simulation] interoperability and fostering M and S capabilities useful to multiple communities,' Glasow said in a news release.

Glasow said he would take advantage of the increased use 'of modeling and simulation within the training, analysis, acquisition, and test and evaluation communities in concert with the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System and the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium.'

He worked previously as a munitions requirements analyst and nuclear, biological and chemical warfare analysis reviewer at the Center for Army Analysis. He was also the former modeling and simulation special assistant to the deputy assistant to the secretary of Defense for chemical and biological defense.

He graduated from Texas A&M University in 1982 with a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering. He also received master's degrees in operations research from the Naval Postgraduate School and strategic resource management from National Defense University.
