WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) announced, Aug. 26, that it will hold five public Industry Day meetings in three cities during the month of September.
The goal of the meetings is to foster the exchange of information between the Navy and industry. The meetings will cover energy storage solutions, extending the life of airfield pavement, improving lighting technologies, cybersecurity of industrial control systems, and innovative construction methods.
"The five NAVFAC Industry Day events are an excellent opportunity for industry leaders and NAVFAC subject matter experts to exchange ideas on important topics within the built environment," said Joseph Gott, NAVFAC chief engineer and director of Capital Improvements. "The exchange of information between NAVFAC and industry will help inform criteria and improve the effectiveness of our facilities for the Department of the Navy and other supported federal agencies."
The meetings will be held in San Diego (for energy storage and innovative construction), Virginia Beach, Virginia, (for extending airfield pavement life and improving lighting technologies), and Washington D.C. (for cybersecurity of industrial control systems).
The meetings in San Diego will be held Sept. 14 and 15 at the Admiral Baker Clubhouse.
In Virginia Beach, the meetings will be held Sept. 15 and 17 at the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library Auditorium.
