June 20, 2013. NCMS, in collaboration with Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & IMF and NUWC Keyport, WA, held the 2nd Annual Underwater Vehicle Competition at Olympic High School Pool in Bremerton, WA. This event, aimed at promoting higher education in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, hosted 116 students from 15 western Washington schools.
August 29, 2011. Not long ago the subject of innovation in manufacturing was considered a bit of an oxymoron to many leaders in business and government as they chose not to invest in our manufacturing base. If anything good is to come from the economic events in recent years, it’s that many in America once again discovered the value of a manufacturing economy that can compete in today’s global economy
August 18, 2011. NCMS is promoting innovation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education to help ensure that our country has the manufacturing knowledge to compete globally. Earlier this year, NCMS held Michigan Robotics Day, during National Robotics Week, to help publicize the amazing the opportunities that robotics holds for students. In Washington state NCMS staff is taking their support of STEM to a higher level involvement.

Environmentally Friendly Cutting Solutions Project Update
NCMS is seeking participants for a new forming NMRPP project, Catapult Alignment Position Measurement Automation. The current aircraft carrier catapult alignment method is marginally reliable due to multiple degrees of error and limited data. Over the 100 meter length of the catapult trough, mechanics repeatedly align a fixture to reference lasers and manually conduct gap […]
NCMS is seeking participants for a new forming NMRPP project, New Technology Metal Deposition Repair for Navy Ship/Submarine Components. Current methods of Metal Deposition Repair (MDR) for worn and corroded components are primarily limited to electroplating/conventional welding processes, which have significant limitations for component repair. New MDRs are needed for valve bodies, valve balls, pump […]
NCMS is seeking participants for a new forming NMRPP project, Environmentally Friendly Cutting Solutions. The current method employed for large-scale cutting and ship disposal (Oxy-Fuel) creates large quantities of visible emissions, metal fumes and debris. Federal and State Clean Air Acts prohibit visible emissions greater than 20% opacity. Attempts to control emissions to comply with […]
NCMS announces the formation of a new collaboration- Navy Maintenance and Repair Partnership Program (NMRPP). Launching in the Pacific Northwest, with Project Managers assigned to NCMS West, in Bremerton, WA., NMRPP supports Naval shipyard and other maintenance and repair operations essential to sustain the most critical ships and undersea weapon systems in the Navy and […]
NCMS West recently recognized its two most recent interns, Chris Stone and Victoria Walker, with Certificates of Appreciation signed by NCMS CEO and President Richard Jarman.
