Scheduled to debut on October 1, 2001, USAShipbuilding.com will replace the existing NSRP services provided by NSNet.com. ARL Penn State
was selected from a pool of highly-competitive proposals submitted to NSRP to develop and operate a state-of-the-art, web-based information system for the United States shipbuilding industry. The new website will incorporate elements of the existing NSnet content and architecture in a central, industry specific resource that includes timely business news, project documentation, industry events, new production technologies, and other relevant NSRP project information. Newly published and historical information necessary to successfully run the NSRP panels will be readily available. Additional content and services will be provided that benefit various segments of the shipbuilding industry, including commercial shipyards, Navy program offices, shipping companies, marine service organizations, and academic partners. Additional information as well as a service roll-out schedule is available at www.usashipbuilding.com.
