Guice Offshore (GO), widely considered to be the U.S. flag leader in operating dynamically positioned mini supply and medium-sized multi-purpose vessels in the specialty market, will be attending the upcoming Sea, Air and Space Expo, which runs from April 3-5, 2023 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
The Sea-Air-Space Exposition was founded by the Navy League of the United States in 1965 as a way to bring the U.S. defense industrial base, private-sector U.S. companies and key military decision-makers from the sea services together for an annual innovative, educational, professional event located in the heart of Washington, D.C.
Sea-Air-Space brings the U.S. defense industry and key military decision-makers together for three days of informative educational sessions, important policy discussions and a dynamic exhibit hall floor.
Sea-Air-Space attracts thousands of maritime leaders from sea services around the globe, making it the largest and one of the longest-running maritime expos in America. Representing Guice Offshore at the event will be Sales and Marketing Vice President David Scheyd.
“Guice Offshore is very honored to support our men and women in uniform and the many other branches of the U.S. government,” Scheyd said. “GO vessels are regularly employed in a variety of support roles including R&D, offshore training and drills, logistics and special projects.”
For example, the Guice Offshore multi-purpose vessel GO America, based in Port Everglades, Florida in Fort Lauderdale, operates in conjunction with our partners Global SubDive to support a large array of Government projects, often utilizing GSD submarines and ROVs. Similarly, partner Ryan Marine is an expert in the field of unmanned vehicle operation which allows us to provide turnkey AUV and UUV services to Government agencies anywhere in the U.S. and Caribbean.
Guice Offshore also supports the aerospace industry, an important and growing segment of the global economy and the maritime sector that is principally focused on the activities centered around space craft and space flight. Originally for governments, but now ever-expanding to address commercial needs and even eco-tourism, this broad and complex industry incorporates an offshore component often associated with R&D projects and recovery operations.
