会议名称:Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium 2018



所在国家:United States

具体地点:Virginia Beach Convention Center

主办单位:American Society of Naval Engineers

议题:Readiness, Wholeness and Future Capability — Keys to Expanding Maritime Superiority.






The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium (FMMS) is an annual event, alternating between Hampton Roads and San Diego, bringing together the entire naval ship maintenance and modernization community like no other forum.

US military vessels and ships are some of the most complex modern marvels of the 21st century that must operate in demanding seas while completing complex missions for national defense or humanitarian efforts. ASNE's FMMS allows for an open forum of communications and exchange of technical information of ship maintenance and modernization between the US Navy, NAVSEA, industry, academia, deck plate users, and you.

This forum seeks to engage everyone who has a stake in building, repairing, sailing, innovating, updating, training, fighting, and winning on or from the sea on a US or allied military vessel. We are stronger when people with different backgrounds, education, jobs, trades, and experience discuss issues and solutions facing the fleet.
