Ann Arbor, MI — The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) is hosting the upcoming NCMS Technology Showcase: Puget Sound Naval Shipyard at the Kitsap Conference Center, Bremerton, Washington, July 24-26, 2019. The event will introduce new and innovative technologies, products, and processes that could assist the maintenance and sustainment communities with filling unmet technology 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.”
Companies from all over the U.S. that will be demonstrating their commercially-available applications, equipment, and machinery that could enhance warfighter readiness.
