Gibbs & Cox Awarded Navy Contract for Shock Engineering Support

  • Contract Continues Shock Engineering and Support to Naval Surface Warfare Center Philadelphia Division from Leading Maritime Solutions Firm

Gibbs & Cox, Inc., one of the world's leading independent naval architecture and marine engineering firms, has been awarded a contract by the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Philadelphia Division (NSWC Philadelphia), for Shock Engineering and Analysis.

Gibbs & Cox will be supporting the Ship Systems Hardening Branch (Code 333) at NSWC Philadelphia. Code 333 serves as the Navy's Delegated Approval Authority for shipboard equipment shock. In this capacity, Code 333 provides technical services in the areas of vulnerability reduction, live fire test and evaluation support, and equipment shock hardening.

Gibbs & Cox's work will primarily be performed in the G&C Philadelphia Office, with periodic travel to support shock trials and the resolution of emergent shock related issues that may arise on in-service naval ships.  

"With nearly 90 years of naval design and engineering experience, Gibbs & Cox is the U.S. Navy's surface combatant subject matter expert when it comes to naval architecture and marine engineering," said Rick Biben, Gibbs & Cox's Chief Executive and President. "We have been honored to support this organization for over 40 years and look forward to providing additional valued engineering to NSWC Philadelphia."
