CMMC is again pleased to announce our Summer Science Courses for kids entering grades 3-9. We are offering many one-week courses on a variety of topics including astronomy, marine environment, robotics, physics, chemistry, navigation, and movie making. The courses will be held at the STEM Education Center on our CMMC campus.
We are excited about this opportunity to engage our children during the summer and we hope you'll be able to take advantage of it. Space is limited so be sure to sign up early.
For 2016, CMMC is again adding several new museum exhibits, expanding our STEM Education programs, and strengthening our business operations. We are most in need of expertise in website upgrades & social media expansion, writing for a new newsletter and print articles, and researching and restoring vintage electronics for planned future exhibits.
Among our many other volunteer opportunities are event coordination, museum tour guides (no experience needed - we'll train you!), teacher assistance in our Summer Science program, and coordination of the Summer Speaker Series. If you have a skill and a few hours a week, we have a need. Have fun and make new friends at CMMC! To read more about volunteering at CMMC, click here.
Ed Fouhy Distinguished
We are proud to announce the Ed Fouhy Distinguished Speaker Series,a program which will engage the community in exploring significant and thought-provoking topics.
As a communications professional Ed Fouhy brought the world and its stories to the American public. As a CMMC volunteer and museum docent, Ed wrote and produced two videos explaining the importance of wireless radio communications to the rescue of Titanic survivors and the outcome of the Battle of the Atlantic during WWII. Through a limited schedule of special presentations the Ed Fouhy Distinguished Speaker Series has been established to promote knowledge and understanding of history and world events, with a special focus on the science and development of communications technology and its profound effect on our lives.
On October 15, 2015 our inaugural distinguished speaker was Professor Thomas Perera, PhD. In a followup to his riveting presentation at our May 9 Annual Meeting, Dr. Perera presented "Clandestine Radio Operations In World War II". The Ed Fouhy Distinguished Speaker Series and Dr. Perera were introduced by Morton Dean, formerly of CBS and ABC News.
Look for the next program in the Ed Fouhy Distinguished Speaker Series coming in April 2016. Details will be announced in the 1st quarter.
We are located at 847 Orleans Rd (Route 28) in Chatham MA 02633.Click here for our museum schedule & map

We are pleased to have David A. Speciale, J.D., CITRMS as our featured speaker this year, presenting Wireless/Mobile is the New Playground for Thieves. Wireless/mobile devices have become the new playground for cyber thieves. Cyber attacks and data breaches have become a daily threat to both individuals and businesses. The different types of cyber risks are seemingly limitless and it's all but impossible to predict exactly how and when you or your business may become a target for cyber criminals. Dave will provide the latest trends and give examples of the increased risk to mobile devices as well as provide "TIPS" on securing your mobile devices.
Mr. Speciale has held senior management positions throughout the United States with Allstate Insurance Company and in Japan with AIG. His most recent position was President of LIFARS LLC, an international cyber security company.
In May 2015, Mr. Speciale as cofounder and expert, created the Global Risk Assessment (GRA), a team of experts providing innovative global risk plans for businesses, including mapping technologies to mitigate risk exposure and increase operational performance. He lives in Chatham and has written and lectured extensively on insurance, risk management, and cyber security. He is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
Please mark your schedule and join us on May 14,
Chuck Bartlett, President
Chatham’s top-secret role in defeating Germany during World War II came alive in 2015 as we remembered the 70th anniversary of the war’s end.
Stalking the U-Boats: Chatham Radio 1942-1945 was the theme for special exhibits. The museum remembered The Navy’s "Station C” which located marauding German U-Boats and intercepted their Enigma-encrypted radio messages, which was a key to winning The Battle Of The Atlantic.
Continuing this year, an interactive display features both a real German Enigma-cypher machine and two electronic Enigma simulators, which allow visitors to encrypt and decipher their own messages. The Enigma featured prominently in last year’s Oscar-nominated The Imitation Game.
Other interactive exhibits, including learning Morse code and tracing a ship-to-shore telegram through all of its steps, fill the museum, which traces 100 years of wireless communications.
Chatham Navy Radio played a significant role in defeating the Germans during the World War II Battle of the Atlantic by intercepting Enigma-encrypted wireless messages between German headquarters and its ships at sea, passing the intercepts on to Washington, DC for decoding. In addition, as the control station for the east-coast direction-finding network, Station C directed the search for telltale radio signals that allowed enemy vessels to be located and tracked.
