Abstract : The Gulf Coast Region Maritime Technology Center (GCRMTC) was initiated September 26, 1994 and is now fully operational. The Center has been designated as a Navy Research Center of Excellence in Advanced Marine Technology. As part of the Center's mission, research is carried out at both the New Orleans Site and its Orange Site. The Center also solicits concept ideas for collaborative research twice a year from maritime industries and then issues RFP's under the guidance and direction of its Government/Industry Advisory Board (G/AB) and the Government Program Manager. All research sponsored by the Center at both Center Sites and with the marine industries is collaborative research. There are 12 research projects in various stages of progress. Inexpensive Non-Toxic Pigment Substitute for Chromium in Primer for Aluminum Substrate; Integrated Environmental Management Plan for Shipbuilding Facilities; Development of High Speed Marine Vehicle Design Database; Applications of Integrated Optical Fiber Sensor Systems in Shipbuilding and Shipboard Monitoring; Research in Shipboard Sensors; Ships Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM) Database; Performance Simulation of Marine Propulsion Systems under Extreme Conditions; Study of Structural Design Procedures in the Shipbuilding Industry; Software Applications for Shipbuilding Optimization; Improving Technology in the Shipbuilding Industry; Digital Image Photogrammetry; and, Predicting Ship Roll Damping.
