PORT HUENEME, CA -- Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division (NSWC PHD), a field activity of Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), hosted an inaugural three-day event, Aug. 21-23, focused on building the technology and resources intended to ultimately increase and advance America’s national security.
The event was the first in a series of opportunities to bring together government partners, stakeholders, academia, and industry to collaborate and innovate in the areas of sustaining engineering, logistics, and test and evaluation (T&E).
“These initiatives build on important innovation tasks and actions already in progress and will position our command to better support our great Navy over the next 30-plus years,” said NSWC PHD Deputy Technical Director, Vance Brahosky.
NSWC PHD has been designated by NAVSEA as the Enterprise Lead for the Navy’s In-Service Engineering Agent (ISEA) of the Future.
“ISEA of the Future means bringing the latest technology and processes to the future Sailor and our workforce,” stated Lead Logistician, Tim Scully. “The ISEA of the Future is also going to be data-driven.”
To kick off the forum, NSWC PHD Technical Director, Paul Mann, shared his vision for the future ISEA.
“We are the premiere test and evaluation organization for the surface Navy,” said Mann. “We are building the in-service engineering agent of the future and having a renaissance moment. We have a lot of work to do in growing to a 355-ship Navy.”
