The Hampton Roads Chapter of the SAWE would like to thank everyone who participated in our Regional Conference and helped make it a success!
We would like to especially thank our conference sponsors,Aerospace and Space Electronics LLC, for helping to make the Regional Conference possible. Special mention must also be made of our exhibitors and break sponsors: Huntington Ingalls Industries, The Scale People, Intercomp, Altair, Shipweight, and GEC. Finally, a special thank you to Jeanne Willoz-Egnor of the Mariner’s Museum for an enlightening lunch presentation on the history of technology and change in the America’s Cup sailing race.
The Regional Conference featured a full day’s worth of technical presentations, which included discussions of measurement of uncertainty, how engineers are educated, building the world’s largest mining truck, and the SAWE’s proposed Mass Properties Certification Program.
The Hampton Roads Chapter now turns its attention to preparing for the International Conference, to be held May 18-23 in beautiful downtown Norfolk. It is shaping up to be good one, with excellent training, technical content, the latest in SAWE Standards and Practices, and discussions on the future course of the society. We invite all members of the SAWE and the larger mass properties community to participate. You won’t want to miss it!
Registration will open in the early part of 2019. Keep an eye on the website and the SAWE Blog for updates.
