If you're in the high performance boat and combatant craft community, here's why HiPer Craft 2012 is a must-attend event:

Technical Content

With budgets tightening, the technical content at HiPer Craft 2012 will help get your organization or business a leg up on the competition. Hear updates on Navy and Coast Guard acquisition, get the latest on the contracting policies from PEO Ships, participate in panel discussions on HSI and Shock and Vibration and take in commercial presentations from vendors showing the latest in small boat and craft technology and processes. With the technical program taking place in the exhibit hall, you'll never be far from the action.

HiPer Craft 2012 will feature more than 50 exhibitors, including leading industry companies and government organizations, including NSWC Carderock Combatant Craft Division. Take a walk outside to see in-water and static displays and get a first-hand look at the small boats and crafts.
