Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka Japan

Yokosuka, Japan
November 3 – 4, 2021

Overview

NCMS is hosting a Technology Showcase at the Ship Repair Facility & Japan Regional Maintenance Center in Yokosuka, Japan (SRF-JRMC) November 3-4, 2021. The goal of this event is to connect U.S. Fleet Activities Yokosuka to companies and organizations whose technologies can benefit shipyard operations at the installation. This event is an opportunity for participants to present their products, processes, and capabilities and meet directly with DOD maintenance personnel.

SRF-JRMC has provided a list of technology capability priorities they would like to see demonstrated at this event. Please review that list before registering. If your technology is not on the list, contact NCMS for further discussion.

 Registration Deadline 10/3/21

Important Dates & Times

Check back frequently as specific times (setup, tear down, and showtimes) will be added soon. Details are subject to change.

Base Security

Base security requirements are currently being determined. Once requirements have been confirmed, an email will be sent out to all registered individuals and updates will be made to this page.

Virtual Reality Training Solutions

Using VR technology, shipyard workers can experience simulated work environments while learning the technical aspects of equipment, their operation, and maintenance.  VR training can also be used as a training tool for incident response and emergency operations.

3D Handy Scanners/Laser Scan

Hand-held and/or mobile three-dimensional measuring instruments that provide extremely accurate 3D models of objects using lasers.   These models can be used for analysis, production of drawings for engineering calculations, or reproduction of an exact replica of the object by means of 3D printing.

Multi-purpose Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) and Ship Data Platform

Unmanned Surface Vehicle (or drone) capable of performing various tasks that may include: visual inspection of ships and other infrastructure, photographic and video record of inspections, collection of samples, monitoring conditions, and general surveying tasks. The ideal technology would collect, store, and transmit data in real-time.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)

AUVs are capable of autonomously assessing surrounding conditions and circumstances while carrying out preassigned missions, recording video, and transferring collected inspection data and video once it has returned to the surface.

Reconditioning Capability

Maintenance and repair of marine engines with an emphasis on reconditioning and restoration of shipboard parts that are no longer being manufactured.  Cold Spray is an example of a reconditioning technology that is currently being explored by NAVSEA Shipyards.

Unmanned Aerial Systems (AIS or Drone) for Visual and Ultrasonic (UT) Inspection

UAS can provide visual and UT inspection in confined or hard/dangerous to reach shipboard spaces such as those around tanks (ballast or fuel).  The UAS are operated in real-time via a tether or wireless interface that allows operators to conduct visual inspections on a secure, live portal and record the data for later analysis.  AIS can also be used for inspection of other shipyard systems such as cranes, ship antennas, and can also be used for security operations.

Runbook Automation (RBA)

Runbook Automation is the ability to define, build, orchestrate, manage, and report on workflows that support shipyard systems and operational processes.  This technology will allow maintainers, supervisors, and subject matter experts access to needed procedures and operations to reference for troubleshooting and standards creation.

Working Support for Augmented Reality System

 

Solutions for Weld Inspection

Fast, accurate welding inspection technology that provides quick setup and reporting.   A 3D welding inspection system uses an inspection system (robot, camera, and software) on the production line to perform speedy and accurate automatic operations from scanning to 3D analysis and pass/fail judgment.

Magnets for Various Solutions

Innovative magnetic technology can increase safety, productivity, and speed with tasks such as welding, fabrication, automation, shipbuilding, and other heavy industry applications.

Wrapping Repair Solutions

Wrapping repair systems are engineered for pipe wrap and patch repairs, as an alternative to replacing defective metallic substrates, whilst providing superior strength, corrosion, and chemical resistance. These solutions allow for quick and easy repair solutions for restoring the strength of corroded, weakened, and holed pipe and tank walls.

Laser Ablation

Laser ablation or photoablation is the process of removing material from a solid surface by irradiating it with a laser beam. Laser ablation can remove rust, paint, and other coatings from a ship’s surfaces via a process that is faster, safer, and produces less hazardous waste than existing methods such as sandblasting and needle guns.

Storage Systems

Automated industrial vending and inventory management solutions that allow shipyard workers to obtain commonly used parts quickly and easily, while automatically keeping track of inventory and ordering requirements.

Pipe Welding Systems

Innovative pipe welding technology that increases accuracy, provides better consistency and reduces operator fatigue.

Air Leak Detector and Viewer

Technology that can automatically detect compressed air leaks by using ultrasonic waves to detect air leaks using an array of sensors located throughout an industrial facility.

RFID/IC Tag for Time Keeping & Roll Call

A Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) that electronically records the time employees enter a facility, creates records for timekeeping and can provide information related to personnel safety and productivity.

Metal 3D Printers

Quickly produce metal parts with 3D printing technology that are simply not possible with standard manufacturing processes. Create lightweight, high-strength structures with quick turnaround times.

Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV):

ROVs can carry out ship tank, hull, and running gear inspections, provide port security and deep-sea wreck location and assessment, video, and exploration of underwater locations where divers cannot easily go.  Using attachments such as ultrasound and imaging sonars, positioning systems and manipulators, the technology will assist in specialized operations with sensors to collect data, and it is customizable for numerous applications.

Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning for Predictive Analytics

Leveraging I/O point data being generated from operational technology platforms on the ships by integrating into AI/ML platforms can add more predictability to maintenance planning process up front.  This will allow SRF to schedule and execute maintenance much more efficiently and effectively as well as increase the uptime of critical assets and operations on the ships, greatly increasing the operational readiness of the 7th Fleet.

Cloud Technology

Cloud services could be utilized for purposes of achieving innovation at scale across the SRF environment to include Yokosuka, Sasebo, and the remote operators around NAVSEA..  These services can support capabilities such as digital twin, predictive analysis, autonomous vessel repair capabilities, CBM+, MBPS, JAIC interface for AI assisted decision making, and AR/VR capabilities.  This service could also increase the efficiency of IT service delivery.  Also included in cloud services is AWS auto transcribe technology; see https://aws.amazon.com/transcribe/, and

Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi products are created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK-based nonprofit that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. Its goal is for more people to be able to harness the power of computing and digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.  https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/

Cold Spray

Cold spray technology makes it possible to create coatings by bombarding the solid phase material at supersonic speed, without melting or vaporizing it, using inert gases.  When the material bombarding the substrate reaches the critical speed, its particles undergo plastic deformation and the coating is created. Accordingly, unlike other spraying techniques, cold spray technology makes it possible to minimize any change in the properties of the material due to heat or oxidization in the coating.  Can be used on an incredibly wide array of materials, including metals, non-ferrous metals, ceramic, glass, stone and plastic.
