The Combat Systems Committee of The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) is completing arrangements for a Combat Systems Symposium to be held at the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md., on October 12 and 13, 1977. The Symposium will be sponsored by the Naval Sea Systems Command and the Office of Naval Research in cooperation with ASNE.

Combat Systems Committee chairman, Capt. Alfred Skolnick, USN, has announced that plans call for seven classified (secret) technical sessions covering a broad range of Navy combat system subjects, which should be of interest to all professionals.

Introductory remarks by Rear Adm. Kenneth E. Wilson, USN, president of ASNE, will be followed by the keynote speech, to be delivered by Vice Adm. Clarence R. Bryan, USN, Commander of the Naval Sea Systems Command. The technical sessions will follow for the duration of the two-day meeting.

Each technical session — Combat System Survivability, Combat System Design and Engineering, Ship Design for Combat Systems, Combat Systems Installation-The Shipbuilding Phase, Combat Systems Acquisition and Acceptance, Combat Systems for 1990- 2000, Combat Systems for Advanced Platforms— will be chaired by a Navy Flag Officer who is actively engaged in the subject of his session. His introductory overview, opinions and assessments should be of particular interest to attendees. Opportunities for discussion will be provided.

Additional information, as it is developed, and registration and security details will be announced by ASNE. Information will be available from ASNE National Headquarters, 1012 14th Street, N.W., Suite 807, Washington, D.C. 20005.
