TruQC, a St. Louis-based company that develops software for paperless job-site documentation, was recently awarded a share of a $2.5 million grant from the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) Executive Control Board.
The NSRP endowed 19 R&D projects with grants to pursue the goal of reducing the costs associated with Navy shipbuilding and maintenance.
This is the second grant awarded to TruQC by the NSRP and will focus on updating the existing paperless painting software that was designed to comply with Navy Standard Item 009-32.
“I’m incredibly proud the NSRP decided to once again award us a grant for this project,” said TruQC CEO Ross Boyd. “We’ve worked on addressing this goal of the United States Navy before, and we’re fully committed to the project.”
TruQC once again received the grant money for this project alongside BAE systems, Marinette Marine, NASSCO-Earl, NASSCO-San Diego, Bath Iron Works, Elzly Technologies and Vigor Shipyards. Projects were awarded based on the recipients’ ability to reduce the costs associated with paperwork requirements for ship maintenance and repair.
The $2.5 million was allocated across 12 categories in which the NSRP sees opportunities for alleviating costs. TruQC’s grant was included in the category for Surface Preparation and Coatings.
TruQC is a cloud-based job-site documentation app deigned for the iPad. The software platform allows safety and quality control measurements to be recorded, stored and delivered digitally. Learn more about paperless job-site documentation here.
