The National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) has awarded Hepburn and Sons LLC with the "Onboard Ship Integration of Laser Peening System for Lasting Aluminum Repairs."

The project team is led by Hepburn and Sons LLC and includes LSP Technologies Inc., Vigor Shipyards, ABS and NSWC Carderock Division. The NSRP investment is $1.78M and the industry investment is $1.96M. The duration of the project is 24 Months. The primary scope is to install a laser peening system onboard the Littoral Combat Ship for pre-weld and post-weld laser peening operations.

Phase I will focus on the design and build of a laser peening Procudo system and a Beam Deck Delivery System and finalizing certification at NSWC Carderock Division. Phase II will focus on integrating the Procudo Laser Peening System into Vigor's onboard and in-yard repair operations, ultimately bringing the Procudo Laser Peening System onboard aluminum vessels to treat the superstructure and mitigate stress corrosion cracking.
