The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium is an
annual event, alternating between Hampton Roads and San Diego, bringing together the entire naval
ship maintenance, modernization and ship repair community for a superb collaborative event.
ASNE's FMMS allows for an open forum of communications and exchange of technical information on
ship maintenance and modernization between the Maritime Services, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Merchant
Marine, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, Military Sealift Command, industry, academia, deck plate
users, think tanks, Labs, FFRDCs, and [hopefully] you.
This forum seeks to engage everyone who has a stake in building, repairing, sailing, innovating,
updating, training, fighting, and winning on or from the sea on a U.S. or allied military vessel. We
are stronger when people with different backgrounds, education, jobs, trades, and experience discuss
issues and solutions facing the fleet.
What are some of the intersections of communications from the Maritime Services, industry, and
academia of this forum?
- Learn what new technology can do and how best to integrate into a ship's systems
- Work with other disciplines and stakeholders to ensure that engineering considerations are built
into all phases and lifecycle process
- Share effective repair strategies based on collective data and deck plate experience to help
eliminate the cost and time of rework
- Understand what ship designs and systems can be modernized with durable and proven technology
- Train others and share historical knowledge that can be collected for the next generation
- Leverage partnerships between small and large businesses to facilitate technology transition to
FMMS 2022 will include prominent guest speakers, panelists and paper presentations providing a unique
opportunity to interact with senior military and civil service decision makers, ship and craft
operators and maintainers, repair and maintenance personnel, designers, builders, planners,
engineers, program managers, life cycle engineers, equipment suppliers and other technical experts.
