NCMS/PMS 555 Industry Day

The U.S. Navy has begun the effort of modernizing their four domestic shipyards and is looking for innovative technologies!

The Navy wants their repair facilities to be the most, innovative, efficient, productive, and cost-effective facilities in the world.

PMS 555 is the program management office charged with identifying “out of the box” solutions to rapidly change the infrastructure with the focus of increasing throughput at the public shipyards.

NAVSEA is dedicated to locating, partnering with, and adopting best-in-class technologies that will transform production facilities into the shipyards of the future.

U.S. industries have the technologies to make that goal a reality. Now is the time to begin discussions and present your technologies to key project decision-makers.

Help the Navy plan for the future defense of our nation by attending the Shipyard Modernization Industry Day on November 7, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST at Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, VA.
