Johnny Wolfe (right), director of the Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs, speaks with members of the rocket recovery team at the Launch Test Complex during a tour of China Lake on Jan. 29. Wolfe lauded the rocket recovery team for its work in testing new submarine launch procedures as well as the team’s efforts in recovering from the 6.4- and 7.1-magnitude earthquakes in July 2019. “It’s not just a testament of how we think about testing systems. It is truly a testament to how China Lake and this organization have the right talent to think through how we set this up to prove that the systems work,” Wolfe said. During his visit, Wolfe also toured other locations at the China Lake Propulsion Laboratories. — U.S. Navy photo by Paul Kakert
