Presenter: CAPT Richard Delpizzo, USNR (ret), F-SNAME; American Bureau of Shipping

Abstract:

Today, it is standard operating procedure for Classification Societies to provide review and approval services for military ships used by government agencies around the world.  This presentation will discuss the processes and events leading to this eventuality.  After a short overview on the classification process, the following timeline of events will be explored:

 1900-1980s: Using class society rules for naval auxiliaries

1990s-2000s: Acquisition reform and the commercialization of military standards

2000s: Leveraging the class process for naval combatants (not only class society rules but international requirements as well)

2010s & Beyond: Expanding the use of the class process to military design aspects

The presentation will focus on topics such as the evolving class program manager in the military construction world; the process of moving from a commercial to a military class process; and the need for military notations such as for air blast, fragmentary and ballistic protection, and how to incorporate military ship safety from a goal based perspective.  Finally, the presentation will explore where military classification may lead tomorrow.

In addition, a short overview of the ASNE Certificate of Naval Engineering will be presented.
