U. S. Navy's Manager of New Destroyer Program

Visits Louisville and Tours MTTC

Dick Gilbert, (right) Technology Director at MTTC, discusses the latest Technology Transfer projects with USN Captain Fred Parker. MTTC's Technology Transfer efforts match commercially produced products with military needs, saving taxpayers millions of dollars per year.

  April 17, 2000; Louisville KY- The local chapter of the American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) invited U.S. Navy Captain Fred Parker, Program Manager for the DDG-51 (Arleigh Burke Class) Guided Missile Destroyer, to speak at their April 17th meeting. During his visit to Louisville, Captain Parker toured the MTTC and reviewed some of our Technology Transfer projects.The MTTC Technology Transfer project for DDG-51 Louvers directly affected the ships in the DDG-51 program. We also explained the MTTC's role in the following Technology Transfer projects: Low Maintenance Bilge Paint, Stratica Deck Tile, Superbolt Fasteners, Watertight Door Hinges, K-Flex/Ecotherm Insulation and Topside Connector Covers.

In addition to the MTTC, Captain Parker also visited the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Pt. Hueneme Division, Louisville Detachment, United Defense and Raytheon at the Technology Park of Greater Louisville. The DDG-51 Class Destroyer program contracts with United Defense and Raytheon to supply shipboard ordnance to the Navy.

Captain Parker's visit was important to the entire defense complex at the Technology Park of Greater Louisville, because the Captain's program is responsible for a multi-billion dollar annual expenditure for shipbuilding at both Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine and at Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi. It is the only active combatant shipbuilding program in the Navy. Since Naval Ordnance Station closed, many people have forgotten that private contractors are still overhauling Navy torpedo tubes, gun barrels, and decoy launchers, and producing main battery guns and PHALANX Close-In Weapon Systems. In addition, NSWC Pt. Hueneme Division still conducts In-Service Engineering Agent duties at the former Ordnance Station. The DDG-51 Program presents a significant opportunity for the Louisville defense manufacturing community, and we were honored to have Captain Fred Parker visit our facilities and review our progress and accomplishments.
