NCMS Hosting Pearl Harbor Shipyard Technology Showcase

NCMS introduces innovative technology at Technology Showcase at Pearl Harbor Shipyard Jan 22-24

Pearl Harbor Shipyard, Hawaii — The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) is hosting a Technology Showcase at the U.S. Naval Shipyard at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, January 22-24, 2019. The event will introduce new and innovative technologies, products, and processes that could assist the maintenance and sustainment communities with filling unmet needs.

Through the Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) Program, NCMS is assisting the U.S. Navy in collaborating with industry to demonstrate, evaluate, and validate maintenance and sustainment technologies that can facilitate improvements in efficiency, safety, and accuracy at best cost.

“NCMS is pleased to be supporting the U.S. Navy’s efforts toward modernizing their shipyards. The CTMA Program is the perfect vehicle for the government to demonstrate and evaluate technology prior to acquisition to ensure the benefits will be maximized,” says Debbie Lilu, CTMA Program Director. “Technology Showcases have become popular events where shipyard maintenance artisans, shop managers, and base leadership can get a hands-on look at state-of-the-art technologies.”

There are 29 companies from all over the U.S. that will be demonstrating their commercially-available applications, equipment, and machinery that could enhance warfighter readiness.

About Pearl Harbor

Navy Yard Pearl Harbor was officially established on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu by the U.S. Navy on May 13, 1908 as a mid-Pacific coaling and repair station. Military facilities on the islands of Hawaii have proven to be vital for the defense of the United States and its interests.  Hawaii‘s strategic location is a vital waypoint and defensive outpost between the U.S. mainland and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region.

The Shipyard has continuously improved from its modest creation into a world-class Navy complex; these changes reflect the importance the Shipyard has to the U.S. Navy and the global influence of the region. The capabilities provided by the Shipyard enable the U.S. Navy to secure sea lanes of communication and commerce, effectively projecting power across the expansive Pacific and Indian oceans.
