Technology, Systems and Ships 2018

Theme: Designing, Building and Sustaining the Future Fleet

Date: June 18-20, 2018

Location: FHI 360 Conference Center, Washington, DC

Technology, Systems & Ships 2018 has moved to June 18-20, 2018 to best accommodate Navy discussion of the upcoming shipbuilding portfolio. This event will showcase new programs such as the new FFG(X) as well as programs of PEO Ships, PEO USC, PEO Carriers, PEO IWS, and PEO Submarines. This will be the 2018 event to get a full understanding of the direction the Navy is taking regarding future ships, systems and technologies. Beyond the shipbuilding programs, other topics such as ship modernization, weapon systems, combat systems, and C5ISR will be discussed. This event provides industry an opportunity to showcase their platforms and technologies that should be considered by the Navy’s acquisition and engineering communities. The venue for this event will be FHI 360 located in Washington, DC which provides an intimate environment for one-on-one discussion with Navy decision makers.

"This year’s event promises to be an excellent opportunity to hear from and interact with shipbuilding program offices, including their leadership in an effort to understand the technologies and requirements necessary to build the "next Navy". We anticipate that the program will offer intriguing dialogue with all programs from Submarines to Surface Ships, Carriers to Amphibs. Don’t miss it!"

CAPT Rick White, USN (Ret.), TSS 2018 Symposium Chair
