Navy Lab Hosting Event

Monday, August 12, 2002
The Navy’s Acoustic Research Detachment (ARD) conducts a ribbon cutting at 1:00 p.m., August 13, 2002 for the 26 thousand square-foot Acoustic Test and Analysis Center (ATAC). Captain Steven W. Petri USN, Commander, Carderock Division, parent organization of ARD, welcomes Senator Larry Craig as the invited guest speaker. ATAC is the centerpiece of a major construction project, consolidating ARD offices, computer laboratories and industrial facilities into a single, modern facility. The project represents the culmination of the ARD's Facility Master Plan, which is transforming ARD from a collection of converted World War II-vintage boat repair shops and 1970-vintage buildings into a state-of-the-art test facility. ATAC is a multifunction building, consolidating 80% of the primarily civilian government employee workforce. It houses the capability for analysis of acoustic data from large-scale model lake tests. ATAC boasts an approximately 9000 square-foot secure laboratory for analysis of model data. It has fabrication shops for metal, fiberglass, wood and repair of boats, motors and equipment, plus offices and conference rooms for resident and visiting engineers and analysts, engineers and the detachment managers. Two rooms allow video teleconferences. This project was designed and built by WPC, Inc., of Gig Harbor, Washington, under the direction of the Naval Facilities Command, Engineering Field Activity-Northwest. Cost of the new complex is $7.7 million.
