The certificate says:

"Mr. Jeffry Waters is being recognized with the 2006 Department of the Navy Top Scientists and Engineers of the Year Award for leading the implementation and delivery of a web-based, real-time, shared situational awareness tool called Kweb. The success and reusability of this tool results from a design approach incorporating Mr. Waters' idea of combining spiral development of rapid software prototypes with early and continued customer involvement, and employment of the User-Centered Design approach put in place by human factors specialists on the team. Mr. Waters' approach of designing reusable, adaptable components based upon an open architecture and customized quickly for each new situation has resulted in a long series of successful C4I systems."
