Thursday, February 26, 2009

In response to current industry and Navy interest in attacking cost drivers in the electrical aspects of shipbuilding, the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) has created the Electrical Technologies Panel. The new panel will provide a collaborative vehicle through which industry and government stakeholders can discuss mutual interests and facilitate technology transfer across a broad range of shipbuilding electrical technology topics, including such areas as electrical testing; construction and design modifications; and process improvements.

The Electrical Technologies Panel will be holding their first panel meeting on March 12, 2009 in conjunction with ShipTech 2009 in Biloxi, MS.
