Manufacturing for naval and marine relates to the engineering, design, fabrication and assembly of a broad range of parts, components, systems, and vessels for commercial and military application.
Supply chain opportunity for Vermont manufacturers lie especially with the Multiple Ship Multiple Order Contractors (MSMO), which build warships and naval vessels, including submarines, for the United States Navy. MSMOs include BAE Systems, General Dynamics Bath Iron Works (GD BIW), General Dynamics Electronic Boat, and Rolls-Royce Naval Marine.
Vermont is home to an advanced manufacturing base of suppliers that offer the MSMOs and U.S. Navy capabilities in key areas, such as:
- Artificial intelligence, adhesives, batteries, electrical and electronics, sensors and sensing systems, composites, metal fabrication, paint, precision machining, MRO, propulsion, pumps, valves, marine gas turbine technology and turbomachinery, sealants, and wiring, cables and connectors.
According to Visiongain, the U.S. Navy spends approximately $3.2 billion annually on corrosion related maintenance issues on U.S. Navy ships, which is an opportunity for carbon composite manufacturing, as composites offer anti-corrosive properties.
