Rear Adm. Carl Chebi, formerly vice commander of the Naval Air Systems Command, has assumed new roles as program executive officer for space systems and PEO for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence at the U.S. Navy.
The Navy said Tuesday Chebi succeeded Rear Adm. Christian Becker, who will become commander of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command.
Chebi previously served as deputy program manager for the Navy’s F/A-18 and EA-18G programs; executive officer and commanding officer of strike fighter squadron; and deputy for strike aircraft plans and requirements at the office of the chief of naval operations.
He also managed the service branch’s precision strike weapons and naval integrated fires programs.
Chebi has completed more than 3700 flight hours aboard F/A-18 A-F, Mirage 2000, F-14A-D, F-15, F-16 and P-51 aircraft platforms.
PEO C4I helps the Navy implement integrated communication and information technology systems to support information warfare and command and control operations.
