Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) is hosting an Industry Day to facilitate conversation and collaboration between government and industry. This event will provide a forum by which NSWCDD can communicate its intentions and exchange useful information. This event will include morning information sessions, lunch, a planned keynote address by NSWCDD’s Technical Director, Mr. Dale Sisson, SES, followed by in-person matchmaking during the afternoon session (sign up day of event) - this is an opportunity for small businesses to meet with NSWCDD officials to discuss capabilities and value.
0800-0900 NSWCDD/TASC Breakfast (TASC Staff and Board Only)
0930-1200 Overview of NSWCDD and DNA
1300-1600 Individual sessions
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
- Federal contractors (large and small) in engineering, technical, and professional services industries who are interested in NSWCDD business opportunities.
- Representatives from Small Disadvantaged Businesses, 8(a), HUB-Zone, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses, and Women-Owned Small Businesses.
The Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division originally established itself as the major testing area for naval guns and ammunition. Today, it continues to provide the military with the development and integration of warfare systems for the warfighter, warfighting and the future fleet through a hands on research, test and development enterprise.
Our MISSION: We deliver warfare systems to protect our nation and defeat our adversaries.
Our VISION: Design, develop, and integrate technologically superior, 21st century warfare systems.
The division is headquartered at Dahlgren, VA, and provides Fleet support at the NSWC Dahlgren Division Dam Neck Activity, in Virginia Beach, VA, overlooking the Virginia Capes Fleet Operations Area.
NSWCDD conducts advance research in all systems-related areas and pursues scientific disciplines including physics, mathematics, directed energy and digital engineering, modeling and simulation, software, mechanical, electrical and systems engineering, to name a few.
Our STRATEGIC GOALS:
Strategic Goal 1: Technical Thrusts
For over a century, Dahlgren has led the U.S. Navy to worldwide superiority in innovative, integrated warfare systems. Today, our Navy is competing globally with skilled adversaries intent on surpassing us. Everything that we do at NSWCDD is about ensuring that the U.S. Navy remains supreme throughout the coming century. Our efforts will be focused on several specific technical thrusts.
- Thrust 1: Intelligent Automation
Peer and near-peer competitors across the world are aggressively pursuing autonomous warfare and the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) across the warfighting spectrum.
- Thrust 2: Software Engineering Revolution
In the future, software will provide more than 80 percent of combat systems’ capabilities, with greater speed and fewer errors humans are capable of.
- Thrust 3: Digital Engineering
Traditional naval engineering processes and methods are not well suited to managing the complexity, interconnectivity, and interoperability of current and future systems of systems.
- Thrust 4: Hypersonic Weapons Advancement
Our nation faces fierce competition from our adversaries in the development of offensive hypersonic weapons and the weapon systems designed to defeat them.
- Thrust 5: Information Superiority
We must recognize and act on the motto that “Information is Combat Power.”
As a premier naval scientific and engineering institution, we are The Leaders in Warfare Systems Development and Integration.
