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. 

Applied Cryptography for Securing Cyber-Infrastructure

Course Title: Applied Cryptography for Securing Cyber-Infrastructure
Instructor: Dr. Bharat Madan
Location: American Society of Naval Engineers, 1452 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22314

Date: December 11, 2015
Time: 1300-1700

Instructor Bio: Dr. Bharat B. Madan is a Professor in the Modeling, Simulation and Visualization Engineering Department, Old Dominion University since 2012, where he teaches and conducts research in networked system security, attack tolerant systems and network data analytics. Prior to joining ODU, he was the Head of the Distributed Systems Department at the Applied Research Laboratory of The Pennsylvania State University. Over the last ten years, he has been working on a number of sponsored research projects dealing with sensor networks, sensor data fusion, machine learning, modeling and analysis of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) effects on networks, intrusion tolerance, security quantification, wireless network capacity and semantics driven service oriented network of sensors & platforms. He was the PI for a number of sponsored research projects. These include, AFOSR funded project “Dynamic Data Driven Machine Perception and Learning for Border Control” and two DTRA funded projects that deal with modeling and analysis of cascading failures in infrastructure systems subjected to WMD events and the design of networking structures that can are inherently capable of surviving large scale failures caused by a WMD. He has more than 25 years of experience in academia at Applied Research Lab, (2004-2012) IIT Delhi (1976-1996), Naval Postgraduate School (1984-1985), University of Delaware (1988-1989), Old Dominion University (1989-1995), Duke University (2001-2004) and ARL Penn State University (2004-present). He has also worked in the industry R&D for over five years, first at IBM (1996-1999) designing and implementing networking protocol stacks (for the OS2 and the main frame OS/390 operating systems) IPSec & Secure FTP and after that at Ericsson, where he was involved in R&D activities related to wireless voice and data networking, hand-held multi-media communication devices and mobile IP. He has published over 70 papers in peer reviewed journals and international conference proceedings and also has a patent.
