ASNE is the leading professional engineering society for engineers, scientists and allied professionals who conceive, design, develop, test, construct, outfit, operate and maintain complex naval and maritime ships, submarines and aircraft and their associated systems and subsystems.  ASNE also serves the educators who train the professionals, researchers who develop related technology, and students who are preparing for the profession.  Society activities provide support for the U.S. Navy; U.S. Coast Guard; U.S. Marine Corps; U.S. Merchant Marine and U.S. Army.

ASNE is the seventh oldest technical society in the United States.  It was founded in 1888 by a group of naval engineering pioneers, most of them officers of the U.S. Navy's Engineering Corps, who sought a unified approach to their profession in order to make the most of new advances in technology. The purposes of ASNE are:           

  • to advance the knowledge and practice of naval engineering in public and private applications and operations,
  • to enhance the professionalism and well-being of members, and
  • to promote naval engineering as a career field.

For 125 years, the Society’s objectives have been strengthened and preserved to meet the changing needs of a time-honored profession. Today ASNE conducts a variety of technical meetings and symposia, publishes the highly regarded Naval Engineers Journal and a number of other technical proceedings and publications, and fosters professional development and technical information exchange through technical committees, local section activities and cooperative efforts with government organizations and other professional societies.

The Society's annual meeting, ASNE Day, is typically held in February of each year in the Washington, DC, area. The meeting features major addresses by high level industry and government leaders and panel discussions by leading members of the profession.  It also includes presentation and discussion of technical papers on a variety of timely naval engineering topics, presentation of the Society's prestigious annual awards and a large exposition with government and industry exhibits covering the full spectrum of naval engineering technology. ASNE Day is highlighted by the Society’s annual Honors Gala, attended by hundreds of executives and senior managers from both government and industry.

Our website is designed to not only serve our members, but also to support scholars, students and others interested in the varied field of naval engineering.  We welcome your suggestions on ways we can improve your experience. 

Mr. Michael G. Pasquarette

Award: Clifford G. Geiger Award

Year: 2014

Recipient:

Mr. Michael G. Pasquarette

 

Reason:

For his exceptional leadership and influence within the naval logistics community as set forth in the following:


With 33 years of experience in maritime maintenance and logistics, Mr. Michael G. Pasquarette is exceptionally well qualified to lead the Navy Planned Maintenance System Coordinating Activity. His expertise has been invaluable in improving effectiveness of the critical maintenance reviews, while his experience in Fleet maintenance and Quality Assurance has brought credibility and balance to his approach, helping to effect substantive outcomes for these important reviews.

Mr. Pasquarette has played an important role in improving the key PMS Technical Feedback Report (TFBR) process. Assuring timely and correct replies to the large volume of Fleet-generated TFBRs is a high visibility issue to both the Fleet and the logistics community. His broad experience enabled Mr. Pasquarette to effectively lead a working group of technical and logistics specialists from multiple disciplines to attack this problem. The process improvements they identified have improved the timeliness and quality of responses for this high-volume process. His emphasis on in-depth understanding and careful analysis of TFBR numbers and trends has been key to PMS process improvement.

Mr. Pasquarette is also taking the lead in aligning PMS more closely with configuration data. In an environment of diminishing resources, Mr. Pasquarette has worked to improve and streamline PMS processes and; along with his rigorous financial management processes, he has been able to contain PMS development and support costs for many activities and programs with reduced budgets.
 
Mr. Pasquarette's significant contributions in maintenance and logistics engineering have made a real and positive impact on critical Fleet support and have proven him to be worth of the Society’s 2014 Clifford G. Geiger Award.
