ASNE San Diego Section Hears Adm. Monger Stress Importance Of Safety Interlocks

The San Diego Section of the American Society of Naval Engineers held its May meeting at the Admiral Kidd Commissioned Officers' Club. Rear Adm. Albert J.

Monger, USN, Commander, Aircraft Carrier Group One, was the guest speaker. His topic was the interrelationship between ship operating and design requirements.

During his presentation, Admiral Monger stressed the importance of safety interlocks to minimize the possibility of operating and maintenance accidents, and the desirability for simplifying maintenance procedures by designing units to be assembled in only one way. He also emphasized the importance of quality assurance inspection by an independent group separate from the personnel who initially do the work.

Admiral Monger's talk was pertinent to the upcoming technical symposium on the design and maintenance of the aircraft carrier, which is being sponsored by the Commander, Naval Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet, in cooperation with the American Society of Naval Engineers. The symposium will be held in San Diego, October 7-8, 1976. For symposium details, write Comdr.
