DESTROYER, CRUISER & FRIGATE TECHNOLOGY September 27-29, Biloxi, Mississippi The American Society of Naval Engineering (ASNE) in cooperation with the Surface Navy Association (SNA) and the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Pascagoula, Miss., will sponsor a symposium entitled "Destroyer, Cruiser & Frigate Technology" on September 27-29, 1990, at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss.

The symposium is planned to bring the Navy and industry together for an interchange of technical ideas for future ship designs.

The 18 invited papers will emphasize subsystem technology in the area 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. Over 40 companies will have exhibits at the coliseum and additional exhibit space is still available.

Luncheon speakers will feature Ron Kiss, Director of Shipbuilding, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (RD&A), and Rear Adm. William J. Flanagan Jr., Chief of Legislative Affairs. The Thursday evening banquet speaker will be Vice Adm. John W. Nyquist, Assistant Chief of Naval Operations (Surface Warfare). On Saturday morning, September 29, there will be a tour of Ingalls Shipbuilding to include a visit aboard a Ticonderoga Class cruiser.

Registration fee for the technical conference is $75 for ASNE and SNA members, $125 for nonmembers, and $20 for students.
