Abstract : The Gulf Coast Region Maritime Technology Center (GCRMTC) was initiated September 26, 1994 and has been designated as a Navy Center of Excellence in Advanced Marine Technology. The Center issued a second solicitation for Concept Proposals in August 1995 from the marine industry and from university researchers. Based on peer reviews, Government/Industry Advisory Board (GIAB) recommendations and Government Program Manager (GPM) approval, three requests for proposals were issued in late April 1996. The proposals submitted in response to our three RFP's were peer reviewed, ranked, and will be submitted to the GPM for approval for funding. A third solicitation for Concept Proposals (both internal and external) was issued in January 1996 and a fourth solicitation (internal only) was issued in July 1996. The GCRMTC initiated the Environmental Resources and Information Center (ERIC) and the Simulation-based Design Center (SBDC) in 1995. ERIC, which is collocated at the New Orleans Site is a depository and resource for environmental issues of concern to the shipbuilding/marine industries. ERIC is fully operational, and its operations and services are fully detailed on the World Wide Web. The SBDC is collocated at the Orange Site and is fully operational. Its operations and services are also fully detailed on the World Wide Web (WWW).
