Combat Direction Center Buckle

The Combat Direction Center or CDC is not a specific department per se, but a function within operations. It’s under the United States Department of Defense, and its mission is to keep the Commanding Officer apprised of the overall tactical situation and recommend courses of action as appropriate. CDC accomplishes this mission by collecting, processing, displaying, evaluating, and disseminating tactical information in a timely fashion.

CDC is vested with tactical decision-making responsibility with respect to the ship’s defensive systems and makes recommendations to warfare commanders for overall battlegroup defense. It has specific divisions such as OI Division, OW Division, OX Division, OEM Division, Meteorology (OA Division), and Strike Operations Division.

They ordered a custom belt buckle from us and requested an image of their mascot, a bear, holding and biting their insignia, in front of the Star Spangled Banner. Everything needed to be colored and finished with a shiny coat.

Before we started the cutting and other technical execution, we needed to design a nice layout for all the graphics so it would fit into the surface of the custom belt buckle. Once we have everything in place, the machine will work its magic and as you can see, the final piece of the buckle is crafted precisely and coated beautifully.
