HUBZone HQ currently supports the U.S. Navy’s Surface Engineering Maintenance Engineering Planning Program (SURFMEPP) team with five Senior Engineers and one Program Analyst. Currently, the team is supporting the continuous cycle of surface ship maintenance.
HUB’s activities in support of the SURFMEPP Team include:
- Reviewing the ship history data of all in operation Navy surface ships to determine life cycle maintenance requirements across the Expected Service Life (ESL) of a given ship class
- Retrieving, cataloging, and posting ship maintenance data to databases.
- Analyzing current and historical data to identify class trends for use during advanced planning and execution planning
- Assisting in the review, analysis, and accomplishment of engineering analysis of existing data for life cycle maintenance strategy improvements as directed by the Government from specific sources.
- Conducting detailed data retrieval and reviews utilizing established reports and Structured Query Language (SQL) queries of maintenance databases as directed by the Government.
- Assisting in the development and implementation of an internal and external Communication Plan that reflects the stakeholder organizations and support development and management of briefing schedules that support Command information dissemination, and is mapped to those organizations that support Class Maintenance and Modernization of Surface Ship.
HUBZone HQ has provided support for afloat computer networks in operational U.S. Navy nuclear submarines at Submarine Base New London, Groton, CT. This work was up to and including the TOP SECRET level of security classification. Our contractor team performed work including:
- Onboard integration and work control support of availabilities, HM&E, and C5I alteration preparation and installation.
- Availability planning and maintenance/modernization support.
- Assisting the ship’s force and maintenance/modernization providers in advance planning.
- Development of integrated availability work packages and production schedules.
- Identifying critical path jobs and development of work sequence schedules.
- Supervising the submarine maintenance coordinators in the development of integrated availability work packages and production schedules.
- Coordinating the execution of Planning Boards for Maintenance (PB4M) early in each boat’s FRTP and as appropriate throughout the deployment cycle.
- Monitoring the material status for submarines assigned to the Squadron. Ensuring known material deficiencies were assigned to availability.
- Representing the Squadron and monitoring the performance of repair activities during the execution of submarine repair periods including attendance at Work Progress Execution Reviews (WPER), Pre-Avail Conference (PAC), Arrival Conference, daily production meetings, Departure and Assessment conferences, Ship Safety Council, critiques, fact-findings, and any other meetings as required.
Expeditionary Warfare / LCAC / SSC Support Services
HUBZone HQ provided engineering and technical support for alterations, depot level repairs and improvements to Navy Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) amphibious vessels at NSWC PCD, Panama City, FL.
- Organizational and intermediate level Planned Maintenance on hull, mechanical, electrical, and electronic systems or system component, performing maintenance on a regular schedule in accordance with Planned Maintenance System (PMS) documentation, Planned Maintenance System Index Pages (MIPs), and Planned Maintenance System Requirements Cards (MRCs) provided as Government Furnished Information (GFI).
- Organizational and intermediate level corrective maintenance or repairs on failing or failed hull, mechanical, electrical, or electronic systems or system components. Repairs to electrical, or electronic systems entailed removal of components and systems to effect repairs or modification of said systems to the latest configurations. Repairs encompassed such activities as welding or machining of high tensile steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and other corrosion-resistant alloys as well as conducting post-repair non-destructive tests to ensure the integrity of all welds.
