Multi-Agency Craft Conference - Summer 2021  
Location: United States Coast Guard Yard, Baltimore MD

 

MACC is moving to the Summer of 2021!

After careful thought and consideration, ASNE is postponing the Multi-Agency Craft Convention until Summer 2021. We believe this is the safest decision, as the safety and well-being of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and staff are of the utmost importance to us. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we adapt to the changing landscape with the fight against Covid-19. We hope everyone is well and staying healthy, and we look forward to interacting face-to-face soon.

In the meantime, ASNE will host a Launch & Recovery (L&R) Virtual Event July 15-16th. Virtual attendees can listen to keynotes, forum and panel discussions, along with technical paper presentations related to launch and recovery systems, host marine platforms, and vehicles. Since its founding in 2005, the Launch & Recovery (L&R) Symposium (encompassed within MACC in 2018), addresses the launch, recovery, and operations of manned and unmanned vehicles from marine platforms. Manned and unmanned vehicles include helicopters, rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, RHIBs, high-speed craft, tenders, UAV, USV, UUV, and many more. Marine platforms include naval, coast guard, passenger, and commercial ships, as well as offshore platforms and other vessels. For 2020 we will be holding a virtual Launch and Recovery Symposium to maintain continuity on this valuable and tremendously timely topic, particularly as autonomous systems become an increasingly capable and valuable asset in support of civilian and military missions, in addition to the manned vehicles that are launched and recovered from various platforms daily.

ASNE is researching and building several additional options to include sponsors for each day of L&R, affording attendees the ability to view exhibitor company promotional or product demos and networking options for scheduling meetings.

Please be on the lookout for more updates to follow.

About MACC

MACC is an open forum for the exchange of operational and technical information on small boats and craft conducted between Government agencies, Universities, Corporations (large and small) and the entire maritime community.

Recognizing the popularity of the multi-track technical program from 2018, MACC will again be offering three technical tracks:
  •Boats and Craft Technical Track
  •Launch and Recovery Technical Track
  •Planing Hull Simulation Grand Challenge Technical Track

Since its founding in 1998, the Multi-Agency Craft Conference (MACC) has served as a primary venue for leveraging knowledge and lessons-learned across multiple Government agencies that develop, procure, or operate small boats and craft. Information on new technologies and new product offerings as well as information on Army and Navy service craft, Navy and Coast Guard patrol boats, Navy and USMC expeditionary craft, and Naval Special Warfare craft are highlighted in chaired technical presentations, vendor and agency displays, and in-water demonstrations.

Since its founding in 2005, the Launch & Recovery (L&R) Symposium, encompassed within MACC since 2018, addresses the launch, recovery, and operations of manned and unmanned vehicles from marine platforms. Manned and unmanned vehicles include helicopters, rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, RHIBs, high-speed craft, tenders, UAV, USV, UUV, and many more. Marine platforms include naval, coast guard, passenger, and commercial ships, as well as offshore platforms and other vessels. The scope of L&R includes the launch and recovery systems, the host marine platforms, and the vehicles themselves-all of which are evolving at a rapid pace.

MACC 2020 will be host to the 2nd Planing Hull Simulation Grand Challenge. The objective of the grand challenge is to explore the current state of the art for numerical simulation of planing hulls. ASNE is looking for participants with a variety of simulation tools from potential flow to direct numerical simulation.

Promoting Electric Propulsion (PEP)

What is PEP?

Promoting Electric Propulsion (PEP) for Small Craft is an educational and competitive program to foster the development of electric boats in the United States. The second PEP competition will be held July 2021 in conjunction with the Multi-Agency Craft Conference.

Why PEP?

You will have the opportunity to show your designs and talk with numerous industry leaders. This competition affords the opportunity for colleges and college students to make a statement to the companies in the small craft, electric craft, and military organizations that are invested in craft design, propulsion, and maintenance. We encourage you to take advantage of this influential audience!
