Boston Engineering Corporation has opened an office at the ATMC of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, 151 Martine Street, Fall River, MA, where it will incubate projects emphasizing maritime activities, such as its ground-breaking technology with unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).  The site is adjacent to South Watuppa Pond and very close to the ocean, making it ideal for conducting UUV tests.

The Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Center (ATMC) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth provides advanced technology and manufacturing solutions, through industry and university partnerships, to meet current and future business needs.

"Our team is excited to announce this addition," said Michael Rufo, Director of Boston Engineering's Advanced Systems Group.  "Our ability to rapidly develop tactically relevant, game-changing technologies in the maritime mission space is strengthened by this opening. It allows us to enhance our value and offerings to customers and, most importantly, to our nation's warfighters and first responders."

"Our engineers have a long history of collaboration with Dr. Lou Goodman, Associate Dean at the School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST)," stated Roger Race, ASG's innovation program developer.

"This move is in direct response to the progress made with our SBIR-funded UUV technologies," stated Mark Smithers, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Boston Engineering. "ATMC provides excellent access to people with maritime and manufacturing expertise, as well as to a collaborative environment with a great university. We are thrilled to leverage the formidable base established by UMass Dartmouth for the purposes of developing cutting edge technologies within our state."
