Multi-Agency Craft Conference 2020

Date: July 15-16, 2020
Location: United States Coast Guard Yard, Baltimore MD

The Multi-Agency Craft Conference (MACC) is an open forum for the exchange of operational and technical information on small boats and craft between Government agencies and the maritime community. 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 1998, 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. Previous conferences have covered a broad range of topics including: requirements generation, boat and craft design, acquisition processes, maintenance and repair practices, logistics and training, and new technology development and integration. The shared information results in effective use of resources, opportunities for collaboration, a more knowledgeable industry-base, and best-value small boats and craft for all end-user communities.

From the Archives

In the December 2017 Naval Engineers Journal, to reflect our excitement about MACC 2018, we shared a portion of Dr. Daniel Savitsky's "Planing Craft" published in the February 1985 issue of Naval Engineers Journal. The full text is linked here. Note, ASNE members have electronic access to the full archives of Naval Engineers Journal dating back to 1889!
