We make consistent efforts to apply the highest standards of correctness and clarity to hardware, software, technical documentation, and all work products developed at Lincoln Laboratory. This is a reflection of our technical excellence and our commitment to mission success for our sponsors and warfighters.

Sean R. O'Melia

Sean R. O'Melia is a member of the technical staff in the Secure Resilient Systems and Technology Group. Since joining the Laboratory in 2008, his work has spanned topics such as automated intrusion and detection for tactical networks, security for open-architecture airborne platforms, and usable key management technology for small unmanned aircraft systems. Mr. O'Melia works closely with partners in other technical focus areas at the Laboratory to ensure that cybersecurity and resiliency are integrated into systems to best support national security missions.

Mr. O'Melia currently leads the technology transition of a resilient key management architecture for protected antijam tactical satellite communications, following many years of rigorous development and demonstrated effectiveness at exceeding mission objectives. In 2012, he was a corecipient of an R&D 100 Award for the Lincoln Open Cryptographic Key Management Architecture (LOCKMA).

Mr. O'Melia received BS and MS degrees in computer engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, in 2005 and 2007, respectively. His graduate research focused on instruction set extensions for enhancing the performance of symmetric-key cryptographic algorithms. He has been a member of IEEE since 2001 and of the IEEE Computer Society since 2006. He was inducted into the Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu honor societies in 2004. He was a program committee member for the Military Communications (MILCOM) Conferences in 2012, 2015, and 2016.
