NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (USTCNS) --- William J. Cooper, director of the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command’s Transportation Engineering Agency, received a Meritorious Executive 2004 Presidential Rank Award during a ceremony hosted by the Secretary of the Army in the Pentagon May 9.

As Director and Special Assistant for Transportation Engineering, SDDC, TEA, Cooper distinguished himself as the Department of Defense lead for transportation and deployment engineering matters.

Cooper directs DOD's transportation engineering efforts by providing analyses of surface deployment infrastructure to support equipment and materiel movement worldwide.

According to his nomination, Cooper's efforts have directly and successfully supported Army Transformation, the Global War on Terrorism, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

He serves as DOD's primary interface with officials of the U.S. Federal Highway and Federal Railroad Administrations to ensure the readiness condition of national highway and railroad infrastructure to support rapid deployment capabilities.

He has aggressively managed DOD's efforts to construct over $200 million of Defense Access Road highway projects supporting DOD installations nationwide. The Offices of the Secretary of Defense and Joint Staff, Combatant Commands, and the Services use these deployment infrastructure analyses to assess the ability of U.S. Armed Forces in meeting their national defense requirements.

He also serves as the Army Transportability Executive Agent in overseeing the deployment characteristics of military equipment and weapon systems as they are developed and fielded to ensure ease of movement in aircraft and on ships and by rail and road.

He succeeded in providing near real-time, worldwide transportation infrastructure and movement tracking information to decision makers at all levels of the Federal government through the development and operation of the technically innovative Intelligent Road/Rail Information Server (IRRIS). This accomplishment helped ensure the safe and secure movement of thousands of defense-sensitive shipments worldwide.

There are two categories of rank awards: Distinguished and Meritorious. Award winners are chosen through a rigorous selection process. They are nominated by their agency heads, evaluated by boards of private citizens, and approved by the President of the United States. The evaluation criteria focus on leadership and results.

Cooper is one of 15 Army recipients for the 2004 Meritorious Rank Award.
