1330 - 1415 The Role of the Classification Society for High Performance Government Vessels Mr. Eric R. Norris; ABS Americas

Description
Intended as an introduction to vessel classification as it pertains to fast, high performance, vessels, this presentation will discuss the class process and the role it plays in the construction of high speed military vessels. We will look at what is covered by class and what is not, as well as the differences of design review verses full vessel classification and the benefits of both. We will also discuss basic class notations for both the ABS Guide for Building and Classing High Speed Craft and the ABS Guide for Building and Classing High Speed Naval Craft. And lastly we will touch on military unique design loading and the development of a Safe Operating Envelope (SOE) for minimizing the damage to hull structures.

1415 - 1445 A New Approach to High Performance Craft Acquisition
Mr. John Kimener, Contracting Officer, Branch Head Auxiliary Ships & Craft,
Naval Sea Systems Command (SEA 0222)

Description
The Globalization of our economies, worldwide events, and the continued mandate to protect of our strategic national interests have demanded the need for ever increasing high performance Boats & Craft. Since 9/11, new and emergent boat requirements have been met with the procurement of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) items and the use of GSA schedules. This acquisition approach has been, by in large, very successful and efficient, but it has its limitations with translating more complex and sophisticated boat requirements to industry and has presented its challenges with Life Cycle Support CONUS & Overseas. A new acquisition approach for High Performance Craft using FAR PART 12 - Acquisition of Commercial Items and ID/IQ type contracts, will provide boat manufacturers with a better understanding of USN Boats & Craft requirements, ease USN Life Cycle Sustainment and lower Total Ownership Cost, and expand the industrial base.

Description
The Common Maritime Technology Working Group (CMTWG) is chartered by the Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO) in the office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (ASD R&E). The CMTWG will facilitate delivery of technological and material solutions to the combatant craft community of interest while emphasizing funding efficiency and elimination of redundancies in Science and Technology (S&T), Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation (RDT&E) and acquisition programs of record. The mission of the CMTWG is to promote potential solutions to joint and common service combatant craft capability gaps and approved operational requirements in order to facilitate a more rapid and efficient path to fielding material solutions.
