NSRP is a national collaboration of private shipbuilders that provides framework to improve shipbuilding processes. NSRP focuses on national shipbuilding and naval practices to improve the efficiency of the U.S. shipbuilding and ship repair industry.

Hamadyk, who has worked for Newport News for 38 years, was instrumental in collaborating with the U.S. Navy and industry partners on the technical standards that led to the adoption of additive manufacturing of metal components for nuclear-powered warships. The first 3D part certified for use was installed on the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) earlier this year.
