Wednesday, April 18, 2007
It may lack a hull and a propeller, but the newly built Maritime Technology Information Center is destined to play an important role in the fleetâ€™s future, said Tom Warring, center spokesman.
The maritime technology information center is located on a campus filled with unique Navy research and design facilities, including the David Taylor Model Basin where artificial waves test the ocean-going stability of ship designs.
Built for $12 million, the 50,000-square-foot conference center features state-of-the-art audio-visual technology.
Planned down to the tiniest detail over five years, it allows Navy, industry and academia to easily share information and data about ships, ship systems and maritime engineering.
