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. 

This award recognizes naval logistics professionals who, over a period of years, have exemplified the ideals portrayed by Clifford G. Geiger through his exceptional leadership and influence within the naval logistics community, his determined efforts to strengthen the synergy between engineering and logistics, and his dedication to enhancing the capability and stature of the naval logistics profession through increased emphasis on education and professional development for naval logisticians.

This award is named in honor of Clifford G. Geiger, a renowned expert and legendary leader in the field of naval logistics. During a lifetime of service to our nation as a leader in the naval logistics community, Mr. Geiger’s service included assignments as Deputy Chief of Naval Material for Logistics, Deputy Chief Engineer of the Navy for Logistics, Deputy Commander for Logistics in the Naval Sea Systems Command and as the Assistant and Acting Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Logistics. Mr. Geiger demonstrated visionary leadership and exceptional management of logistics planning, execution and control. He defined and demanded linkage, integration and mutual accountability of naval design, engineering and logistics. He was also very active in ASNE and dramatically expanded the Society’s involvement in the logistics arena through establishment of an ASNE Logistics Committee and by his initiation and active support of periodic naval logistics symposia over the span of more than two decades.

The nomination should cite specific evidence of the nominee’s personal and professional leadership in the field of naval logistics over a period of at least ten years and it should provide an assessment of the significance of the nominee’s particular contributions to the logistics readiness of the naval services.  If applicable, the nomination should include specific mention of the nominee’s service contributions to ASNE or other professional societies during the period of consideration for this award.
