With a mission of “anticipating and providing fleet service and support needs on demand,” the U.S. Naval Shipyard Yokosuka has asked NCMS to host a second Technology Showcase, May 12-13, 2021. The shipyard is challenged with providing extended service to their fleet in a high tempo environment, yet they don’t have access to all the latest technologies that their counterparts at domestic facilities do.
The following is an initial list of desired technologies:
- Virtual Reality Training Solutions
Maintainers can familiarize themselves with work environments and learn how to operate machinery and equipment as well as find out how to react to unexpected occurrences.
- 3D Handy Scanners/Laser Scan
Hand-held and/or mobile measurement instruments that automatically recognizes the weld bead shape from profile measurement technology and profile data by optical cutting 3D measurement using a laser and camera.
- Multi-purpose Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) and Ship Data Platform
An unmanned vehicle (or drone) capable of undertaking various applications that may include measuring elements, collecting samples, monitoring conditions, and surveying. The ideal technology would collect and store real-time data such as nautical system and engine system and supports the use and utilization of big data.
- Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)
An AUV that is capable of autonomously assessing its surrounding conditions and circumstances while carrying out preassigned missions and transfer collected inspection data.
- Reconditioning Capability
Maintenance and repair of marine engines with an emphasis on reconditioning.
- Drone for equipment inspection
Technology that will assist with inspection in confined or hard/dangerous to reach spaces. Interface will allow for maintainers to follow inspections on a secure, live portal.
- Runbook Automation
Provides maintainers, supervisors, and subject matter experts access to needed procedures and operations to reference for troubleshooting and standards creation.
- Solutions for Weld Inspection
Searching for fast, accurate inspection technology that provides quick set up and reporting.
- Magnets for various solutions
Innovative magnetic technology that can increase safety, productivity, and speed with tasks such as welding, fabrication, automation, shipbuilding, and other heavy industry.
- Wrapping repair solutions
Repair solutions for restoring strength of corroded, weakened and holed piping and tank walls.
- Laser Ablation
Innovative technology to remove surface paint, dirt, mold, and other cover layers without leaving residue.
- Storage Systems
Automated industrial vending and inventory management solutions.
- Pipe Welding Systems
Innovative pipe welding technology that increases accuracy, consistency and reduces operator fatigue.
- Air Leak Detector and Viewer
Technology that detects and generates reports of compressed air leaks with a viewer uses ultrasonic waves to detect air leaks using an array sensor.
- RFID/IC Tag for Time Keeping & Roll Call
Tags and readers for personnel safety and productivity.
- Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles
Technology that will assist in specialized operations with sensors to collect data, and customizable to utilize over several scenarios.
- Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning for Predictive Analytics
- Metal 3D Printers
- Cloud Technology
- Working support for Augmented Reality system
