  • Navy engineer Steve Price answers an attendee's question about the small additively manufactured modular payload multi-rotor at the 2016 Sea-Air-Space Expo. This low cost, 3D printed, unmanned aerial vehicle is rapidly adaptable to mission requirements and can accept a wide variety of custom payloads. The UAV was one of the exhibits featured at the Navy Additive Manufacturing Showcase in Dahlgren, Va., last month that were selected for display at the Sea-Air-Space Expo. "The volume of creative and innovative ideas made feasible with 3D Printing is astounding," said Lynn Shoppell, a Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division physicist after the Dahlgren showcase. "The exhibitors demonstrated that their concepts for increased technical capabilities, rapid prototyping, improved logistics operations, and cost reduction initiatives are achievable with 3D Printing. Participants also experimented with additive manufacturing technology research and development."  U.S. Navy photo by John Joyce (Released)  160517-N-DE005-010

  • A high-speed camera captures the first full-energy shots from the Office of Naval Research-funded electromagnetic railgun prototype launcher that was recently installed at a test facility in Dahlgren, Va. The test shots begin a month-long series of full-energy tests to evaluate the first of two industry-built launchers that will help bring the Navy a step closer to producing a next-generation, long-range weapon for surface ships. The new launcher brings advanced material and high-power technologies in a system that now resembles a large-caliber gun.  U.S. Navy photo (Released)  120223-N-ZZ999-001
  • DAHLGREN, Va. - The Joint Infantry Company Prototype (JIC-P) solar panel is the topic of discussion between Marine Capt. Anthony Ripley and Eric South, Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division technical lead for JIC-P. While Marines are on break during a march, they can pull out the solar panels and recharge batteries. The system features bionic and solar power enabling Marines and Soldiers to patrol longer without resupply. The Business Intelligence Group (BIG) recently selected JIC-P for the 2016 BIG Innovation Award. BIG awardees are recognized for innovations that are making major impacts in today's world. Meanwhile, 3,000 business leaders selected the project as a "best of the best" finalist for the 2016 Edison Awards, a program that honors the most innovative new products, services, and business leaders across the globe. Award winners will be announced and ranked on April 21 at the Edison Awards Annual Gala in New York City.  160226-N-DE005-007

  • Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division systems safety engineer Brandie Jackson mentors an elementary school student in a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) project. A month after she was honored by the Society of Women Engineers with its 2014 Member at Large Outreach Award in October, Jackson - reflecting on Thanksgiving and the outreach award - said, "I am thankful for the chance to mentor and encourage school age youth, their parents, and the community."  140602-N-DE005-001
  • DAHLGREN, Va. - Marine Capt. Anthony Ripley, science and technology lead at the U.S. Marine Corps Expeditionary Energy Office, wears the Joint Infantry Company Prototype (JIC-P) system featuring bionic and solar power that enables Marines and Soldiers to patrol longer without resupply. Flanking Ripley are JIC-P lead engineers Sara Lohmann, holding the solar panel, and Eric South, who holds the vest power manager. The Business Intelligence Group (BIG) recently selected JIC-P for the 2016 BIG Innovation Award. BIG awardees are recognized for innovations that are making major impacts in today's world. Meanwhile, 3,000 business leaders selected the project as a "best of the best" finalist for the 2016 Edison Awards, a program that honors the most innovative new products, services, and business leaders across the globe.
