Theme: Maintaining Maritime Superiority through Improved Maintenance and Modernization Responsiveness

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium (FMMS) is an annual event, alternating between Hampton Roads and San Diego, bringing together the entire naval ship maintenance and modernization community like no other forum.

FMMS 2019 Call for Papers CLOSED

Theme:  Maintaining Maritime Superiority through Improved Maintenance and Modernization Responsiveness

Suggested Topical Areas:
  • Effective continuous maintenance employment in the era of operational unpredictability
  • Employing innovative Material Condition Assessments to prioritize investment decisions
  • Investing today to achieve or exceed design service life & reduce maintenance
  • Contracting strategies that yield improved readiness without adding cost
  • Implementing Flexible Warship Initiatives now to reduce future modernization costs & increase operational availability
  • Using technology to support readiness throughout extended and distributed operations
  • Managing knowledge to better spare, maintain, repair and operate increasingly complex & integrated systems
  • Modernizing for Energy Reduction
  • Innovating cybersecurity upgrades to reduce integration and implementation time and cost
  • Using more reliable components to decrease maintenance cycle frequency
  • New approaches to scheduling & maintenance to better accommodate changing operational schedules

Professional Development Courses held at FMMS, San Diego Convention Center


International Naval Design Standards

August 7, 2019; 1:00-5:00PM
Instructor: Mr. Rich Delpizzo
Professional Development Hours: 4 PDHs
Enrollment Fee: ASNE Members $150, Non-Members $200

As budgets have become more and more restrictive, and navies worldwide rely more and more on commercial practices and standards for the core of their warship designs, there has been a continuing trend away from traditional naval design approaches, and towards a baseline centered in common international requirements. Factors such as acquisition reform initiatives of the 1990's, and a decreased emphasis on national military design documents, have navies worldwide relying on a more global approach to design and acquisition through instruments and organizations such as ASTM F25 Committee, ISO TC8, NATO's standard ANEP 77, and Classification Society Rules and Guides such as the ABS Rules for Building and Classing High Speed Naval Craft (HSNC) and International Naval Ship Guide. This course will provide a broad overview to two ABS rule sets and the NATO standard.
