Industry Day – Undersea Technology Innovation Consortium Other Transaction Authority (OTA) Agreement – October 17, 2018
The Undersea Technology Innovation Consortium (UTIC), www.underseatech.org, will hold a UTIC OTA Agreement Industry Day on Wednesday, 17 October 2018 at the Cambria Hotel and Suites – Atlantic Resort, in Middletown, RI. Navy technical leaders will discuss their undersea and maritime technology topics that will be released in early October under the OTA Agreement with UTIC.
PLEASE NOTE: This event is for UTIC members only and is Distribution D restricted. All attendees must be U.S. citizens, and must bring personal documentation the day of the event to verify citizenship (i.e. a valid U.S. passport; or a U.S. based birth certificate AND a valid picture ID, U.S. based driver’s license, or Government issued contractor CAC card.)
The cost is $100 for UTIC members and includes breakfast, lunch and a late afternoon reception.
|There is a limited block of rooms available at per diem for 16 and 17 October. To reserve a hotel room, please call (401) 236-2020 and reference the “UTIC block” to avoid the $15 per day resort fee.|
Information Exchange – UTIC OTA and NUWC
The Undersea Technology Innovation Consortium (UTIC) will hold an Information Exchange with the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) on 27 August 2018 at the Community College of Rhode Island Newport Campus. The event will be from 1:00pm – 3:00pm. The event will be prior to the opening session of the Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance’s (SENEDIA) Defense Innovation Days, 27 – 29 August, (www.defenseinnovationdays.org ) at the Marriott Newport. In addition to an overview of the consortium, technical leaders from NUWC will provide an overview of upcoming undersea and maritime technology topics that will be released in the early fall under the Other Transaction Agreement with UTIC. Of note, the NUWC Division Newport Advanced Naval Technology Exercise, ANTX, will take place that same week, 29 – 31 August. The cost is $10 for UTIC members; $25 for non-UTIC members.
August 29 – 31 at NUWC Division Newport and the Narragansett Bay Test Facility
ANTX 2018 – Annual Naval Technology Exercise 2018
SENEDIA is collaborating with NUWC Division Newport to conduct the Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX) 2018, focused on Human Machine Interaction. Exercises and events will take place August 29-31 at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport and the Narragansett Bay Test Facility.
Overview – 2017 Annual Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX 2017)
ANTX is an annual event created by NUWC Division Newport to demonstrate future Navy technologies in action today. Naval Warfare Centers, universities, and industry partners are invited to showcase their new unmanned systems and related technologies at the Narragansett Bay Test Facility range and in Panama City. This has been an excellent forum for rapid prototyping, enabling speed-to-fleet development for budding technologies. On Tuesday, January 17, 2017, Tom Fulton will provide an overview of past exercises, and talk about the upcoming event, including its theme of “Battlespace Preparation in a Contested Environment,” and the schedule of activities leading up to the August 2017 Demonstration Week. The event will take place at the Mainstay Hotel & Conference Center in Newport, RI.
Positioning for Undersea Technology Business Opportunities with Defense
Under a grant from the RI Commerce Corporation, the Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance (SENEDIA) has analyzed the FY17 President’s defense budget submission to Congress, and has identified and characterized opportunities involving undersea technology needs for the upcoming five years. This will allow companies to better understand and navigate the FY17 President’s Defense Budget in Undersea Technology and position themselves for potential economic development opportunities.
Jumpstarting Professional Careers in Undersea Technology
Through Real Jobs RI and the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, and SENEDIA, the UTIC is offering exciting opportunities for Rhode Island companies and state college and university students to come together through an undersea technology internship program to provide experiential learning and opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students studying engineering and computer science. Five internships will be available for the each of the 2016/2017 Fall and Spring semesters.
Insight into Defense Undersea Technologies and Programs
Through Real Jobs RI and the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, and SENEDIA, the UTIC will offer an undersea technology overview training that will provide the required background and knowledge for open undersea technology positions. The training will include an overview of submarine systems including their missions, operating environments, threats, and design attributes of subsystems such as sonar, combat control, communication, Electronic Surveillance Measures (ESM), electro-optical imaging, payloads, and launcher system. The training will also introduce the ideas of technical refresh and technology insertion, aligned with current technology growth rates and availability in the world market.
