ASNE Working Towards MACC 2014

ASNE & MACC 2014 - American Society of Naval Engineers

The 2014 Multi-Agency Craft Conference will run from 10 to 12 June at Little Creek, Joint Expeditionary Base, Virginia Beach, USA.

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) has been working with cognizant Navy organizations to request required government approvals to hold the MACC in 2014.

The Multi-Agency Craft Conference (MACC) is an open forum for the exchange of operational and technical information on small boats and craft between Government agencies and the maritime community. Information on new technologies and new product offerings as well as information on Army and Navy service craft, Navy and Coast Guard patrol boats, Navy and USMC expeditionary craft, and Naval Special Warfare craft are highlighted in chaired technical presentations, vendor and agency displays, and in-water demonstrations.

Since its founding in 1998, MACC has served as a primary venue for leveraging knowledge and lessons-learned across multiple Government agencies that develop, procure, or operate small boats and craft. Previous conferences have covered a broad range of topics including; requirements generation, boat and craft design, acquisition processes, maintenance and repair practices, logistics and training, and new technology development and integration. The shared information results in effective use of resources, opportunities for collaboration, a more knowledgeable industry-base, and best-value small boats and craft for all end-user communities.

There is a call for conference papers and abstracts are now being accepted for MACC 2014, with an extended deadline to April 9th. The theme for MACC 2014 is, ‘Tactical Applications of Technological Innovation.’ MACC 2014 will explore the latest technology in small craft design, acquisition, and operations.
