Gardy McGrath Produces Video Detailing Environmental Systems On 21 st Century Navy Ship

Using state-of-the-art 3-D animation and digital technology, Gardy McGrath has completed a video production for the Chief of Naval Operations detailing the integration of the latest U.S. Navy environmental protection technology into the naval ship of the 21st century. Introducing the premise that a Navy ship is actually a "floating city" with numerous waste streams that are continually present, the tape depicts the challenges Navy engineers have had to face throughout the past 25 years of developing systems resulting in clean wakes. From there, a 3-D animated "glass" hull of a 21st Century destroyer is utilized to show the system configurations for each shipboard waste stream, as well as the prototype equipment being deployed today in preparation for these designs.

The presentation has attracted the attention of the cable television show SeaTek, a marine technology series slated for airing on the Learning Channel in the fall. SeaTek producers are working with Gardy McGrath and the Navy to produce a segment that will address the Navy's environmental program technology as it relates to the "clean-wake" ships of tomorrow.
