In the 1960s, McLaughlin Research continued to provide state-of-the-art technical support for military-industrial programs, such as the acquisition and fielding of the sea-based leg of the nation's strategic deterrence triad, the Polaris fleet ballistic missile system. Using early IBM mainframe computers, McLaughlin Research logisticians and configuration managers monitored complex manufacturing and shipping schedules to ensure on-time delivery of system components, earning the Navy's Polaris Team flag for the company.
Since the early 1970s, McLaughlin Research has provided a wide variety of life cycle support services for U.S. Navy undersea weapon and combat system programs from our offices in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Washington under more than 100 major cost-plus fixed fee (CPFF), indefinite duration/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts and over two dozen NAVSEA SeaPort Enhanced task orders. Tasking during the past three decades has ranged from designing world class research and development laboratory facilities to installing and operating sensitive electronic test equipment aboard submarines from the Mediterranean to the Pacific; from tracking the configuration status of every submarine-launched torpedo in the U.S. Navy inventory to analyzing the technical and financial status of major system acquisition programs, such as the Seawolf and Virginia class submarines; and from developing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) implementation and compliance-related reports and manuals to creating interactive computer-based training and integrated, multimedia courses for U.S. and allied navy customers.
Today, at the dawn of the 21st Century, McLaughlin Research looks back with pride on our accomplishments in the past -- and forward with confidence in our ability to help our customers meet the challenges that lie ahead in the future. – less–ZoomInfo
