September 19-21, 2022
The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) is excited to return to the East Coast and the Virginia Beach Convention Center for the 2022 Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium (FMMS). The FMMS agenda includes senior military keynotes, industry speakers, informative panels, Innovation Theater speakers, technical paper presentations, and a professional development course. The Fleet Maintenance & Modernization Symposium also has partnership events - including the Industry/Navy Discussion Panel (INDP), the Port Engineers Symposium, and the Small Business Roundtable. The symposium will take place September 19-21. In addition to the professional Keynotes, Panels, Technical Paper presentations, and Innovation Theater discussions, FMMS will have maritime industry exhibitors in the Virginia Beach Convention Center Exhibit Hall, with superb government ~ industry networking opportunities!
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 the fleet
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.
