In the May 2015 issue of Seapower, a Navy League publication, an article on the award ceremony noted: “Sancoff’s 30-year career as a serial entrepreneur has been dedicated to the development of high-technology products, primarily for the marine and healthcare industries, and he has been granted 42 patents. His recent work at Juliet Marine, Portsmouth, NH, involves the development of multiple new technologies that have been incorporated into GHOST, a surface vessel that is a combination of stealth fighter aircraft and attack helicopter technologies packaged in a marine platform.”

Sancoff’s award citation noted, “His prolific technological advancements in vessel design and propulsion and in healthcare have made the world a safer and better place, both on land and at sea.”

Mr. Sancoff said, “It is a genuine honor to be recognized by the U.S. Navy League with this award. I am in complete agreement with the League’s vision and message, that the Navy is the principal guarantor of America’s national security and that having an ocean-going fleet second to none is the best way to gain and maintain peace. I believe that my ongoing contributions at Juliet Marine, and specifically on the development of GHOST, have worked toward this important goal.”
