NAVSEA, ONR To Establish CISD

Friday, November 01, 2002
Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division recently signed a charter with the Office of Naval Research (ONR) establishing a new Center for Innovation in Ship Design (CISD). This new activity that began operating in August establishes a partnership among ONR, NAVSEA and Carderock Division. NAVSEA staffs and ONR funds CISD, located at Carderock Division headquarters. The center's work supports the National Naval Responsibility for Naval Engineering, ensuring a healthy U.S. ability to develop innovative designs for Navy vessels. This interdisciplinary activity is devoted to creating and developing breakthrough ship design technologies, concepts, processes and computational tools. The focus is on talent, knowledge and innovation, nurturing interest and generating experience in the naval engineering field. CISD brings together faculty and students with government engineers and similar experts from the shipbuilding and repair industry. The center hosts "innovation cells," investigating design needs for ships of the future. It sponsors outreach programs for continuing education, encouraging and honing skills of naval engineers and scientists as well as supporting research at universities, increasing interest and furthering the base of knowledge in the ship design community. To these ends, ONR funds two cells currently underway. One is called "Small Fast Ships", the other, "Modeling and Optimization." Source: NAVSEA Newswire
