Associate Members - Suppliers of Products and Services

HNSA Associate Members are organizations whose objectives are compatible with the objectives of the Historic Naval Ships Association. Examples are historic ships not yet open to the public, firms who supply goods and services to Fleet Members, for-profit tourist attractions such as ship excursion lines, and non-profit organizations working to obtain historic naval ships for siting and display as museum vessels.

HNSA encourages its Fleet Members to give preference to the products and services offered by its Associate Member vendors and suppliers. It also advises Fleet Members to make their own decisions regarding the purchase, employment or other use of the products and services offered by its Associate Members. HNSA incurs no liability and assumes no responsibility for problems that may occur prior to, during or after an Associate Member has supplied a product or performed a service in support of a Fleet Member.

If you are interested in becoming an associate member, contact Dr. William Cogar at executivedirector@hnsa.org

YOUR SHIP HAS A STORY. WE WILL BRING IT TO LIFE.

What is Guru?
Guru provides the most robust digital story-telling platform available to cultural institutions (museums, zoos, aquariums, gardens) and local attractions. Each Guru customer receives their own branded app that delivers nearly any type of content (text, audio, video, AR, VR) based on a user’s location. While enhancing the visitor experience, Guru simultaneously gathers key visitor behavior and demographic data which is leveraged by Guru’s customers for key decisions and to increase donations, concessions and merchandise sales.

­ Case Study: How Guru has impacted the Battleship Iowa?
Created in only six weeks, the Battleship Iowa was downloaded more than 1500 times in the first 60 days after launch. Loved by the visitors and crew alike, it has been a fitting upgrade for the ship’s “fourth commissioning” as one of the Navy’s most historical landmarks.
Constantly evolving, the interactive mobile tour is not a replacement for docents and volunteers but is actually used by them to better educate visitors.

Ocean Technical Services (OTS) began in 1984 and is a full service, nationwide marine surveying and consulting company. While working at Boston Fuel & Transportation Company as a licensed wheelhouse tug master aboard the coastwise tugboat, barge and tanker fleet, Joe Lombardi began getting requests to lend his expertise to surveying projects.

OTS initially focused on New England’s yacht and commercial hull market, but relationships with large marine underwriters in Boston, Philadelphia, New York and London expanded the company’s reach. Recently, OTS has experienced significant growth in the Charleston, SC and Houston markets. We can assist with your marine project, anywhere in the United States or overseas. Chances are we can help with international projects as well.

What is World of Warships?

World of Warships is a free, online historical combat game from Wargaming.  Participants command ships from massive naval fleets with some of history’s most iconic vessels.  Every battle is a pulse-pounding experience with four classes of ships (battleships, cruisers, destroyers, and aircraft carriers) digitally re-created from historical references, all sailing on spectacular rendered environments. Download today and play World of Warships free!

How does Wargaming and World of Warships promote naval history?

With an audience of over 145 million registered users, Wargaming brings its reverence for history to the masses.  World of Warships collaborates with naval museums — many being HNSA Fleet Members — to produce AAA short-format documentaries, like our “Naval Legends” and “1:42” series.

How does Wargaming and World of Warships support veterans past and present?

Every year during May (Military Month), Wargaming runs events to promote veterans’ charities — donating a portion of proceeds directly to organizations like AMVETS, the National Military Family Association, and the HNSA member, Battleship Texas Foundation.

In addition, we collaborated with AMVETS to raise more than $350,000 for the restoration of the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor in 2014.

In 2016, we began a new project called “Virtually Inside the Warships,” which tells the stories of ships and the people who served on them, using 360-degree VR technology. Our first subject is with HMS Cavalier, the only surviving British Royal Navy destroyer from WWII.

As the profiles of Wargaming and World of Warships continue to grow, so too does our ability to educate our players about history and support the numerous historical landmarks, museums, and organizations that make up our naval heritage.
