National Shipbuilding Research Program Awards

May 8, 2011


The Executive Control Board of the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) has awarded funding for six new research and development projects to continue the program’s mission to reduce the costs associated with U. S. shipbuilding and ship repair. These new projects, valued at approximately $14.6 million in both Navy funding and industry cost share, were among those proposed in response to a September 2010 Research Announcement.

The NSRP collaboration periodically funds major R&D projects through which breakthrough technologies and processes can be developed and implemented as a means of reducing shipbuilding and repair costs for the Navy and shipbuilding industry. The current project portfolio reflects the program’s strategic focus on:

• Reduction in Total Ownership Cost of ships
• Improved quality in ship construction and/or repair
• Improved energy efficiency and environmental impact in shipyards and ships
