ASNE Symposium-1986 Set For October 2-4 In Biloxi, Miss.

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) and the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Pascagoula, Miss., are sponsoring a symposium in Biloxi, Miss., October 2 through October 4, 1986. The symposium is titled "Destroyer, Cruiser & Frigate Technology." The symposium is planned to bring the Navy and industry together for an interchange of technical ideas for future ship designs. It is intended that the invited technical papers will provide a survey of the current technology in the topic field.

It is not intended to be too futuristic, neither is it intended to be what is going on today. Perhaps one way to think of it would be technology for the next major class to be designed within this century.

The symposium is scheduled to begin on Thursday, October 2, 1986, at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum.

The nearly Hilton Hotel has set aside a large block of rooms for attendees with bus transportation to be provided to the coliseum.

There will be exhibits in the coliseum with 125 spaces available. All papers will be presented at the coliseum except for classified sessions that will be held at Keesler Air Force Base.

The invited papers will emphasize subsystem technology in the areas of weapons, command and control, aircraft installation, machinery, hydrodynamics, structures, survivability and detectability. Additional papers are planned on foreign technology, technology needs and technology assessment. Moderators for the session have been selected from distinguished leaders in the topics being presented.

There will be luncheons on both Thursday and Friday and a banquet on Thursday evening, all with guest speakers. On Saturday, October 4, a shipyard tour of Ingalls Shipbuilding will be conducted for those interested.

Also, local interest tours will be available for spouses on both Thursday and Friday.

A registration package will be mailed to all ASNE members in July 1986. For further information, contact any of the following committee members: Symposium Chairman, N. Kim Shanahan, (601) we have the big stick.
