ASNE Ship Systems Technical Symposium

The first American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) Ship Systems Symposium will be held on October 2 and 3, 1980, at the Cherry Hill Inn, Cherry Hill, N.J. It is being held at the start of the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) for modernization of the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.

The symposium is being sponsored by the Delaware Valley Section of ASNE and cohosted by the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard and the Naval Ship Systems Engineering Station, Philadelphia Division.

Advance registrations indicated that hundreds of Navy and civilian engineers, designers and planners will be attending this symposium's technical sessions and will view the many technical exhibits which will be on display.

The purpose of the symposium is to bring together Navy users and developers, equipment operators and engineers and program planners in an open forum to identify and propose solutions to current and future problems.

The whole life cycle of ship systems, including development, operation, maintenance and improvement of hull, propulsion and auxiliary systems, will be covered.

The technical papers are divided into four major topical areas—ship systems development, ship systems maintenance and readiness, ship systems testing and ship systems survivability. Following the presentation of each paper there will be formal written discussion after which spontaneous comments and questions will be invited from the audience as time permits.

On Thursday, October 2, there will be a luncheon for the symposium participants and in the evening of the same day there will be a social hour and banquet for participants and guests. On October 3, there will be a luncheon following the technical sessions and then tours, planned by the host activities to NAVSSES Test Facility and Philadelphia Naval Shipyard's Propeller Profiler. The symposium's hosts also urge participants to take this opportunity to visit the many marine exhibits in historic downtown Philadelphia.

Although much of recent technical attention has focused on the electronics and weapons systems, the Navy faces many of its most difficult challenges in these basic ship systems. In bringing together the operator and engineer in open forum, the Delaware Valley Section intends to foster identification and solutions to current and future problems relating to the cycle operation, maintenance and cost of hull, propulsion, and auxiliary systems.
