• UPDATED: Panel: New Technologies in the Power and Propulsion Chain
 

Moderator: Mr. Chris Cikanovich, Program Executive; Rolls-Royce Naval Marine
 

o Mr. Frank Lanni, Chief Engineer - Waterjets Naval; Rolls-Royce Naval Marine
o Mr. Douglas Hahn, President, EngineTec, Inc.
o Mr. Bernard Bentgen, Director, Sales, Government, Naval, Tognum America, Inc.
 

• NEW: A New Approach to High Performance Craft Acquisition
 

Mr. John Kimener, Contracting Officer, Branch Head Auxiliary Ships & Craft, Naval Sea Systems Command (SEA 0222)

 

The globalization of our economies, worldwide events and the continued mandate to protect of our strategic national interests have demanded the need for ever increasing high performance boats and craft. Since 9/11, new and emergent boat requirements have been met with the procurement of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) items and the use of GSA schedules. This acquisition approach has been, by in large, very successful and efficient, but it has its limitations with translating more complex and sophisticated boat requirements to industry and has presented its challenges with Life Cycle Support CONUS & Overseas. A new acquisition approach for high performance craft using FAR PART 12 - Acquisition of Commercial Items and ID/IQ type contracts, will provide boat manufacturers with a better understanding of U.S. Navy boats and craft requirements, ease U.S. Navy Life Cycle Sustainment and lower Total Ownership Cost and expand the industrial base.
