TruQC was once again among the companies awarded grant money for assisting the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) with their core mission of reducing the costs associated with Navy shipbuilding and repair. This year, the NSRP has allocated a total of $2.7 million across 19 projects designed to help the Navy and the NSRP to achieve this goal.
TruQC was selected by one of 11 NSRP panels, which focuses on the role of surface preparation and coatings in shipbuilding and maintenance. Specifically, TruQC will use its experience in paperless documentation to help implement the Navy’s Robust Functional Paperless paint software system.
This is the third consecutive year that TruQC has been awarded funds for its participation in this program. It was the only project funded meant to specifically address issues surrounding surface preparations and coatings. BAE Systems and Elzly Technologies will once again partner with TruQC to help in the implementation of this new, paperless system.

TruQC is cloud-based quality control and process documentation software built for the iPad. It makes objective, integrated quality control a possibility for any industry. The company was founded in St. Louis, Missouri in 2011 to address inefficiencies in the industrial coatings reporting process.
