Robert "Bob" Wright
Co-founder and CEO
Bob served 35 years in the U.S. Navy retiring as a Rear Admiral. He began his Navy career flying F-14 fighter aircraft. He subsequently led Navy efforts with multiple command tours in the high-tech Space and Network Warfare Program and ultimate nomination as Program Director 2003–2005. He spent the last third of his career serving in the Global War on Terror.
Bob was a founding member of the Information Warfare Concept elevating knowledge and information to the level of a warfighting platform… essentially weaponizing information. He personally directed or directly supported countless (70+) innovative, classified, warfighting demonstrations during his high-tech tours.
Bob deployed with his command element to the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa 2006-2008 where he achieved unprecedented success in “Strategic Effects”. He engaged global experts to develop “what’s hard to measure” netcentric models and used these models to successfully apply soft power enabled thru 24 partner nations, USAid, Non-Government Organizations and direct foreign investment.
Upon return to the U.S., he served as Deputy Commander, U.S. SECOND Fleet where he directed an extensive $240M+ Navy program establishing a global network of connected and inter-dependent Maritime Operations Centers focused on coherent and collaborative operations across both geographic and functional seams.
His final Navy assignment was as Deputy Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command where he directed mission analysis for the largest operational merger in modern Navy history, which integrated U.S. SECOND Fleet into U.S. Fleet Forces Command. In this “Merger that Worked”, he directed analysis to decipher 300M+ combined staff budget(s) and a 2900-person headcount to achieve a 465 combined staff reduction. MAJOR OPERATIONAL SUCCESS was immediately apparent under the new model.
Bob has an MS degree in Space Systems Operations (Astro-Physics and Operations Analysis). He’s credentialed in Business Financial Management from Cornell and has attended executive programs at Wharton, Harvard, Babson and Kenan-Flagler. In addition to his present CEO position with Argus AIS, Bob provides flight operations support at Delta Air Lines.
