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.
Naval and Marine Exhibitors
Micro Wire Transmission Services (MWTS) offers high quality, low cost precision assembly services in Vermont (ISO 9001), South Korea (ISO 9001 & ISO 13485), and China (ISO 9001). We also offer 3D Printing and other prototyping services in Essex. Our specialty is micro coax (down to 47 AWG) and other fine wire, fine pitch harnessing solutions. Our technologies are known for high speed data transmission with low EMI and great signal to noise ratio. These kinds of products are used in Consumer Electronics, Medical Devices, AeroSpace, and Automotive Industries. for example, the latest high definition displays require this kind of cable harness. For medical, we supply many ultrasound probe manufacturers, as well as display applications, and various sensors requiring fine wire. We provide a total solution, including design, supply chain management, production engineering, project management, and mass production with a quality focus. Armed with a variety of accumulated manufacturing experience, we are able to provide competitive, cost-effective, reliable interconnect solutions.
