Naval Ship Maintenance &


Technical Symposium-October 3-4, Norfolk, Va.

A technical symposium, Naval

Ship Maintenance & Moderniza- tion/Affordability, sponsored by the

Commander in Chief, U.S. Atlantic

Fleet, and the American Society of

Naval Engineers, Tidewater Sec- tion, will be held at the OMNI

International Hotel in Norfolk

Wednesday and Thursday, October 3-4. This is the second of these Nav- al Ship Maintenance symposia to be held in the Tidewater Virginia area.

The Norfolk Naval Base is the world's largest Naval installation, being home port for more than 130 ships of the Atlantic and Mediterra- nean Fleets, 45 aircraft squadrons, and 67 shore-based military activi- ties. Besides the active ports in the area, there are some of the largest shipyards in the world as well as the

Norfolk-based ship operators. The

Norfolk Metropolitan Area has more than 1.5 million residents—in

Norfolk proper, Hampton, Newport

News, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Ports- mouth, and Virginia Beach—many of them active in the maritime in- dustry.

This two-day symposium, which will be accompanied by exhibits of more than 50 companies and Gov- ernment agencies, will provide a fo- rum for a broad view of initiatives, and for an exchange of ideas for reducing the cost of maintaining and modernizing the growing U.S.

Navy Fleet. The program this year will focus on initiatives aimed at achieving technical requirements in a more efficient manner.

VADM William F. McCauley,
