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. Andrew G. Fogelberg 

 Frank C. Jones Award 

 2016 

Mr. Andrew G. Fogelberg

CITATION:

Mr. Andrew Fogelberg served with distinction over a 34-year career, culminating in the position of Chief Engineer, Southwest Regional Maintenance Center (SWRMC) Engineering Department. A recognized subject matter expert and the technical authority warrant holder for SWRMC, he was responsible for all waterfront-level technical decisions that impacted the cost and schedule of ships in availabilities, including the safe operation of all ships, carriers, and submarines homeported in and visiting San Diego. A recognized leader of enterprise, Chief Engineers across the four non-shipyard Regional Maintenance Centers often solicited for his views and consultation.

Specific highlights within the previous ten years included the design and leadership of SWRMC's Stewardship of Engineering (SOE) program, which increased the Engineering department's technical capabilities in areas such as ship design, shipbuilding, modernization, repair, maintenance, and operation. Additionally, he led and directed the development of a complete Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and metrics program to understand the entire Technical Authority process. The effectiveness of these processes allowed the SWRMC Engineering Department to complete 6,556 Fleet Technical Assists, process 1,327 Departures from Specification (DFSs), review 641 Work Specifications for technical compliance, review and approve 983 Process Control Procedures (PCPs), review and approve 1,040 Condition Found Reports (CFRs) and Inspection/Deficiency Reports (IDRs) and complete 11,789 assessments in FY16. Mr. Fogelberg was responsible for the Departure from Specification (DFS) program where 100% of all disapprovals required guidance on how to gain approval by making small course. This incredibly complex process was designed to adjudicate and provide risk-acceptable options to the Type Commanders (TYCOMs).

In light of these, and the numerous other achievements over the span of his career, Mr. Andrew Fogelberg has demonstrated the excellence and leadership in major maintenance and alterations characteristic of this much deserved 2016 RADM Frank C. Jones award.
