M SHIP uses its unique VIRTUAL SHIPYARD™ services approach to supervise and manage state-of-the-art composite construction projects from a distributed manufacturing base to lower production risk, increase speed-to-market and provide continuous improvement.
VIRTUAL SHIPYARD™ is a trademark of M Ship Co., LLC for design and development services (i.e., design and development of powered and un-powered watercraft for government, commercial, and military markets). Those services include a manufacturing process that integrates a network of specialized facilities into a holistic and cost-effective ship construction effort. The shipbuilding process requires advanced capabilities in the areas of composite construction and complex interdependent onboard systems, including ballistic protection, electronics, propulsion and weaponry. No one facility can possesses the expertise and/or adapt to the rapidly evolving technology to build these ships in a cost-effective and timely manner.
VIRTUAL SHIPYARD™ services capitalizes on the expertise of existing yards that specialize in different aspects of vessel construction, providing the flexibility and agility to respond to changing conditions more quickly than a conventional shipyard.
