President Barack Obama has nominated Navy Rear Adm. William Hilarides as the next commander of the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, the Defense Department said Thursday.

If confirmed, the 32-year Navy veteran would become NAVSEA’s 43rd commander in history and succeed Vice Adm. Kevin McCoy, who has led the command since 2008.

Hilarides was also nominated for promotion to the vice admiral ranks, the Pentagon said.

He currently serves as special assistant to Vice Adm. Kendall Card, deputy chief of naval operations for information dominance, advising Card on long-range research and development, strategies and concepts.

Hilarides also is responsible for helping integrate fleet technologies for intelligence operations, such as coordination within the intelligence community.

His most previous position was program executive officer for submarines, where he was responsible for new construction programs.

He also oversaw acquisition and life cycle maintenance of submarine weapons, countermeasures, sonar, combat control and imaging systems.
