Sea-Air-Space Expo 2022

April 4 - 6, 2022 | National Harbor, MD

Location: Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center
Booth#: 1537

The Navy League’s SeaAirSpace Exposition was founded in 1965 as a means to bring the U.S. defense industrial base, private-sector U.S. companies and key military decision-makers from the sea services together for an annual innovative, educational, professional event located National Harbor, a major waterfront development located along the Potomac River just 20 minutes from Washington, D.C.

SeaAirSpace is now the largest maritime exposition in the U.S. and continues as an invaluable extension of the Navy League’s mission of maritime policy education and sea service support.

The appearance of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) visual information does not imply or constitute DoD endorsement.

Leonardo DRS Next-Gen SHINCOM Shipboard Communication System

The Shipboard Integrated Communications System, or SHINCOM, is the latest generation shipboard communications switch technology which provides reliable, red/black secure tactical communications for Navy operators. The computer-controlled telephone system connects to a ship’s announcing system, shore telephone lines, radio communications and certain battle sound-powered telephone circuits. It also has programmable features ranging from assigning priorities to calls to recording communications in a manner compliant with marine safety standards.

Advanced Data Acquisition & Control System ADACSAdvanced Data Acquisition & Control System ADACS
ADACS is designed to prevent electrical explosions caused by “arcing” in shipboard medium- and low-voltage switchboards. An arc fault is a high-power discharge of electricity between two or more conductors. An arc flash is the pressurized blast of plasma and hot air that occurs when the arc strikes the conductors.
