Developing Better Methods and Tools for Multi-Material Joining

As the Army modernizes its combat fleet, it has identified the need for light weighting its vehicles. The need to be expeditionary is driving the need for a lightweight combat vehicle force that is more maneuverable and requires less maintenance.  One challenge is finding suitable lightweight and high-performance materials for construction. Many new materials are not always viable due to production, finishing, and assembly issues. But a more significant challenge is developing methods for joining of dissimilar materials and the […]

RADIAC Technology Offers More Realistic Training for Those Who Work with Radiation Hazards

The personnel who sustain radiological systems need state-of-the-art simulation training to learn how to handle worst-case scenarios without being exposed to actual radiological hazards. Yet existing trainings use outdated and unrealistic methods. To improve training for the radiological sustainment community, NCMS began a project in September 2020—Advanced Radiation Detection Indication and Computation (RADIAC) Technology—that gathers experts from four Naval shipyards (Puget Sound, Portsmouth, Pearl Harbor, and Norfolk), along with industry partner Radiation Safety & Control Services (RSCS). The project team has […]
