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.

 Clifford G. Geiger Award 


CDR Jonathan D. Baker, USCG, PE


For his exceptional leadership and influence within the naval logistics community as set forth in the following citation: 


Assigned to merge the functions of the former Maintenance and Logistics Command vessel response and Engineering Logistics Center supply organizations into one cohesive casualty response team, CDR Jonathan D. Baker, USCG, has performed meritoriously in one of the most challenging Surface Forces Logistics Center roles. CDR Baker oversees a geographically distributed and diverse team of officers and contractors responsible for depot level casualty and corrective maintenance and logistics support for long-range cutters. Consistently lauded for his exceptional performance, his section has set the standard for service delivery across the entire Surface Forces Logistics Center command.

Under his leadership, they have achieved significant process streamlining and improvements in logistics support. His technical knowledge, shipboard experience, and the development of a pilot program to consolidate ship mission-critical repair parts worldwide, all contributed to a significant reduction in lost cutter operational days within the 378' High Endurance Cutters Fleet. Forging key partnerships with U.S. Navy and industry organizations, this program has overcome logistical hurdles to successfully expedite in-theater repair part shipments to remote port calls. He exhibited exceptional judgment in addressing complex casualties, and has met 100% mission timelines despite a challenging fiscal environment.

CDR Baker is an inspiring leader who recognizes the value of linking the work that the Mission Support staff performs on a daily basis to the success of the customer. CDR Baker’s strong leadership and effective blending of engineering and logistics support for USCG programs have demonstrated clearly that he is truly deserving of the 2012 ASNE Clifford G. Geiger Award.
