Thomas Edward Wilson, MSc, US Navy (Retired), Australian triton class desk at Naval Air Systems Command and chief engineer of the United States Navy, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in military engineering.

With 33 years of experience to his credit, Mr. Wilson has excelled as Australian triton class desk and chief engineer of Naval Air Systems Command with the United States Navy since 2021. He began his affiliation with the same as P-8A FMS Chief Engineer from 1990 to 2021, P-8A systems engineering integration team lead from 2005 to 2016, and P-8A FMS APMSE and chief engineer in 2016. He began his military career in the United States Navy as an anti-submarine warfare operator from 1970 to 1990. Concurrently, he established himself as a lead systems engineer at RBC, Incorporated from 1990 to 2005.

Before embarking on his professional path, Mr. Wilson pursued an education at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in aeronautics in 2004. He concluded his studies at the Naval Post Graduate School, graduating with a Master of Science in systems engineering management in 2014 and a Master of Engineering certificate in human systems integration in 2015. In light of his impressive undertakings, he has accrued several accolades throughout his career. He was presented with the Chief of Naval Operations 2013 Environmental Award, a commendation medal from the United States Navy, and the P-8 FMS Program Development Team Diamond Award for his contribution to capturing a multibillion-dollar program.

Mr. Wilson considers the mentorship he has provided throughout the tenure of his military career to be his most significant achievement. He specifically cites mentoring a pair of college graduates who went on to become a vice president at Boeing and a senior United States government civil service engineer. Though he retired from the United States Navy in 1990, he continued to work as a civilian, and later as a consultant after retiring from civil service. In the immediate future, he hopes to become a mentor and train young engineers in the field. His aim is to go back to inner-city schools and inspire students there, as he firmly believes that his experiences should not go wasted, and inspiring just one child would make his efforts meaningful.
