NNS Promotes Modeling, Simulation and Visualization at Old Dominion University’s Capstone Conference

Published June 1, 2022

Employees from Integrated Digital Shipbuilding, Modeling and Simulation, Engineering and Design, Human Resource Operations and Steel Fabrication and Assembly participated in Old Dominion University’s 15th Annual Modeling and Simulation and Visualization (MSV) Student Capstone Conference in April. It was held at the ODU Virginia Modeling, Analysis & Simulation Center (VMASC).

The conference provides students in MSV undergraduate and graduate programs the opportunity to showcase their applications and developments and learn about how other organizations use MSV. Students and conference attendees visited the MX trailer to see NNS applications, videos and demos including:

  • Visual Work Instructions
  • Laser Scanning
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Augmented Reality
  • Virtual Reality
  • Modeling and Simulation

“Students were delighted to learn more about how modeling and simulation tools are being utilized in the maritime industry,” said Jessica Johnson, director for STEM and Student Engagement. “Student authors presenting at the conference were amazed at how the knowledge and skill sets accrued at ODU are directly applicable to the work NNS is leading.”

Jordan Smith (X23) is an ODU MSV graduate, conference participant and NNS modeling and simulation engineer. “It was energizing to see that students were engaged and excited to see how digital shipbuilding is revolutionizing the construction of Navy ships,” he said.
