NSWC Crane, NAWC Training Techniques Division signal MOA to more technologies progress in a few critical parts

Naval Floor Warfare Heart, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) and Naval Air Warfare Centre Coaching Units Division (NAWCTSD) have signed a Memorandum of Arrangement (MOA) on January 11, 2023 at 3:30 p.m. to further more technologies progress in a few critical parts.

Twelve members of leadership from NSWC Crane visited NAWCTSD to indicator the settlement and extend collaboration to the larger Navy innovation ecosystem. The stop by and MOA signing will formally expand on both of those Warfare Center’s collaborating on vital know-how places wherever knowledge is complimentary to Navy requirements: digital transformation, Stay Virtual Constructive (LVC) coaching attempts, and Modeling and Simulation of diverse devices and platforms.

“These progressive engagements are focused on bringing our groups with each other to operate on tough troubles dealing with our Navy,” claims Dr. Angela Lewis, SES, and the Complex Director (TD) at NSWC Crane. “We every single have diverse Complex Capabilities as Warfare Facilities, and are now targeted on bringing them to bear for the warfighter in distinct collaborative mission places for highest return and end result.”

This formal MOU system commenced when the TD at the two Warfare Facilities exchanged locations early very last summer. Look at to study a lot more about this TD “swap”.

The MOA states that it is an arrangement in between NAWCTSD and NSWC Crane that permits collaboration in help of Naval schooling units Analysis, Enhancement, Test and Analysis (RDT&E). “NAWCTSD is dedicated to accelerating warfighter readiness via education methods,” CAPT Dan Covelli, the NAWCTSD Commanding Officer, explained. “We are going to be faster. The following 10 a long time is about boosting iteration pace. The best way for us to do that is as a result of collaboration with other instructions.  I’m looking ahead to seeing good results as a outcome of this MOA.”

NUWC Division Newport employees recognized for developing innovative technology > Naval Sea Systems Command > Saved News Module

More than 60 current and former Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport employees were recognized for their science, technology, research and innovation accomplishments during a “Patents, Publications and Technology Transitions” awards ceremony held on Feb. 16.

The first of what will become quarterly ceremonies was held in front of Division Newport’s new “Wall of Innovation,” designed to reflect innovation and state-of-the-art accomplishments by the workforce.

“This is what the Wall of Innovation was designed for, to display our technical and scientific advancements and innovation on a rotating basis to the entire community,” Chief Technology Officer Dr. Jason Gomez said as he welcomed attendees to the ceremony.

Technical Director Ron Vien cited the Division Newport mission and its long history of growth, innovation and evolution into new technical areas.

“I’m a bit biased, but we’re pretty cool, what we do here at NUWC, and it’s work like this that really demonstrates our people and technical capabilities,” he said. 

Commanding Officer Capt. Chad Hennings agreed.

“To be the first to think of an idea and to be able to share that idea, that’s really impressive,” Hennings said.

Patent awards

Eighteen current and former employees were awarded 12 patents, an important part of the innovation process as patents protect intellectual property, award inventors for innovative ideas and make novel technologies available to the broader scientific and engineering communities.

“We have a strong history and culture in patents here at Division Newport,” said Gomez.
