Naval Ship Maintenance & Modernization/Affordability
Technical Symposium-October 3-4, Norfolk, Va.
A technical symposium, Naval Ship Maintenance & Modernization/ Affordability, sponsored by the Commander in Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, and the American Society of Naval Engineers, Tidewater Section, will be held at the OMNI International Hotel in Norfolk Wednesday and Thursday, October 3-4. This is the second of these Naval Ship Maintenance symposia to be held in the Tidewater Virginia area.
The Norfolk Naval Base is the world's largest Naval installation, being home port for more than 130 ships of the Atlantic and Mediterranean Fleets, 45 aircraft squadrons, and 67 shore-based military activities.
Besides the active ports in the area, there are some of the largest shipyards in the world as well as the Norfolk-based ship operators. The Norfolk Metropolitan Area has more than 1.5 million residents—in Norfolk proper, Hampton, Newport News, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach—many of them active in the maritime industry.
This two-day symposium, which will be accompanied by exhibits of more than 50 companies and Government agencies, will provide a forum for a broad view of initiatives, and for an exchange of ideas for reducing the cost of maintaining and modernizing the growing U.S.
Navy Fleet. The program this year will focus on initiatives aimed at achieving technical requirements in a more efficient manner.
VADM William F. McCauley, USN, Prospective COMNAVSURFLANT, will welcome attendees at the start of the symposium, followed by keynote speaker ADM Wesley L. Macdonald, USN, Commander in Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet. Speakers at the Working Luncheons will be ASNE president RADM James K. Nunneley, USN (Ret.), and COMO Stuart F. Piatt, USN, Competition Advocate General of the Navy. The guest speaker at the final banquet on October 4 will be M. Lee Rice, president of the Shipbuilders Council of America.
