First sea trial goes according to plan for future USS Fort Worth



The future USS Fort Worth recently completed its first set of sea trials on Lake Michigan, the first time the fast-moving littoral combat ship went full power on the open water.

The $480 million ship, the first naval combatant ever named for Fort Worth and only the third in a new class of vessels, was christened in December at the Marinette Marine Corp. shipyards in northern Wisconsin. Since then, it has been undergoing further work and testing, almost all of it dockside until this month, when the ship began its first round of operational testing from lead contractor Lockheed Martin.

And according to one of two men who will take command of the ship next year, the sea trials went swimmingly.

"She drives like a dream," said Cmdr. Randy Blankenship, who will command one of two crews that will staff the ship. "Without disclosing her speed, it was the fastest I've ever gone on a Navy ship."

Speed is a major ingredient of the littoral combat ship, a much smaller class of warfighter designed after 9-11 for flexibility, agility and shallow water close to coasts. Navy officials have said the ship's 100,000 horsepower can move it in excess of 40 knots, significantly faster than destroyers.

Conceived by former Navy Secretary Gordon England and a former chief of naval operations, Adm. Vern Clark, littoral combat ships are a major departure from the custom of building a deep-water ship around a weapon system. Instead, littoral ships are designed for multiple missions with varying mission packages that can be moved on and off quickly.

The Navy has committed to buying 20 more of the ships through 2015 with an eye toward a total purchase of 55. Half of the first 20 are to be built by a Lockheed Martin team and half from a team led by General Dynamics. The ships are radically different designs, though.

The future USS Fort Worth -- it cannot be formally called that until it is recommissioned in September -- underwent a full series of tests this month in Green Bay, Wis., and Lake Michigan. All the mechanical, support, communications, radar and power systems were tested, including everything but live weapons fire, said Joe North, vice president of littoral ship systems for Lockheed Martin.

"It would be kind of like if someone built you a new race car and you take it out to see if everything is working the way it is supposed to," North said.

Other than minor issues involving a few failed parts, the tests showed that the ship is ready, North said. "The speeds we saw were better than what we anticipated."
The USS Freedom, the first Lockheed Martin version, developed a crack in its hull on its first deployment, but officials said it was a welding problem, not a design flaw. The USS Independence, the first General Dynamics version of the littoral ship, has come under greater scrutiny by congressional critics because of significant corrosion problems with its hull.
Blankenship described the testing as "aggressive" and "fun."
"I'm very confident we're going to be sailing it on the Menominee River next spring," Blankenship said of the river that leads into Green Bay from the shipyards.
The 389-foot-long ship will undergo another round of tests in late November and is scheduled to be transferred to Navy custody in February. Blankenship's crew will take the ship out the St. Lawrence River in June, head into the Atlantic Ocean and around to the Gulf of Mexico for the Sept. 22 commissioning in Galveston

US Navy in record breaking railgun



Citation :
The Office of Naval Research Electromagnetic Railgun located at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division, fired a world-record setting 33 megajoule shot, breaking the previous record established January, 31, 2008.

ScienceDaily

Citation :
Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) hit a materials research milestone in the Office of Naval Research's (ONR) Electromagnetic Railgun program when they fired a laboratory-scale system for the 1,000th time Oct. 31.

"A significant amount of development has been coming out of NRL to support the program," said Roger Ellis, ONR's Electromagnetic Railgun (EMRG) program officer. "It's a key piece of making railgun successful."
The EMRG is a long-range weapon that launches projectiles using electricity instead of chemical propellants. Under development by the Department of the Navy (DON) for use aboard ships, the system will provide Sailors with multi-mission capability, allowing them to conduct precise naval surface fire support, or land strikes; cruise missile and ballistic missile defense; and surface warfare to deter enemy vessels.

"The weapon does all its damage because of its speed," said Dr. Roger McGinnis, program executive for ONR's Naval Air Warfare and Weapons Department, which oversees EMRG. Launched at 2 to 2.5 kilometers per second (4,500 to 5,600 mph) without using explosives, the projectile reaches its target at speeds that require only a small charge similar to that found in automobile airbags to dispense its payload, eliminating the objective through the inherent kinetic energy.
"EMRG will provide the Department of Defense with an advantage in future conflicts by giving troops the ability to fire weapons inexpensively against targets," McGinnis said.

As part of the EMRG development program, ONR and NRL co-funded scientists at NRL to build and operate a 6-meter long, 50 mm diameter railgun as a subscale experimental lab at the Materials Testing Facility (MTF). Researchers fired the first shot in March 2007. After improving the gun's sliding armature and rails, the lab has fired an average of 300 shots per year since 2008.

A railgun launches projectiles by generating magnetic fields created by high electrical currents that accelerate a sliding metal conductor, or armature, between two rails.

"The 1,000th shot is testing new ideas of how the armature interacts with the rails," said Dr. Robert Meger, head of NRL's charged particle physics branch, which conducts about 30 experiments annually on the railgun. Following each test firing, researchers dismantle the gun to examine all the components. They slice up the rails for further analysis under a microscope to reveal surface damage.

During the course of firing all 1,000 shots, NRL scientists have experimented with a variety of materials and geometries to determine which ones can withstand the metal-melting temperatures and pressures of shooting a 1.5-megajoule energy weapon. One megajoule of energy is equivalent to a 1-ton car traveling at 100 miles per hour.

"We've really explored a lot of territory," ONR's Ellis said. "When you couple what we're seeing in testing with what we're seeing in modeling and simulation, it results in some interesting barrel shapes that you wouldn't intuitively think about. Railgun barrels don't necessarily have to be round as in most conventional gun designs."

Since 2005, scientists have been working to increase the railgun's barrel life, muzzle energy and size. Ultimately, their work will help to produce a 64-megajoule railgun with a range of about 220 nautical miles.

"You really have to look at the course of our understanding from the first day they shot to the 1,000th shot today, and how much our understanding of the rail life has dramatically increased, and how much science we have applied to ensure that we're on the path toward a future fieldable system," Ellis said.

Materials science breakthroughs resulting from the test firings have given researchers confidence to transition new technologies to a scaled-up experimental launcher at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren,Va., which fired a world record setting 33-megajoule shot in December 2010.

USS Mississippi to be commissioned June 2 in Gulfport


The $2 billion USS Mississippi submarine will be commissioned in Gulfport on June 2, U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office confirmed today.

Palazzo’s office heard the news in a legislative meeting with the Navy today.

“It is wonderful news that Gulfport has been selected for the commissioning of the USS Mississippi,” Palazzo said. “My office has been working in coordination with (Navy) Secretary Ray Mabus and the Navy to ensure the Fourth Congressional District could host the commissioning of the USS Mississippi. Both Pascagoula and Gulfport were excellent options for the Navy.”

US Navy - Page 29 LWjQ1.Em.77

USS Mississippi, a Virginia-class attack submarine, similar to the one seen here, will enter service fout years from now. The $2 billion submarine will be the fifth ship maned for Mississippi. Secretary of the Navy confirmed Thursday the Mississippi will be commissioned in Gulfport on June 2, 2012.

Boeing gets second P-8A LRIP contract
2nd phase of low-rate initial production also includes spares, logistics and trainin

SEATTLE, Nov. 9, 2011 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] on Nov. 3 received a $1.7 billion low-rate initial production (LRIP) award from the U.S. Navy for seven additional P-8A Poseidon maritime surveillance aircraft.

LRIP-II is the follow-on to an initial LRIP-I contract awarded in January to provide six Poseidon aircraft. Overall, the Navy plans to purchase 117 Boeing 737-based P-8A anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft to replace its P-3 fleet.

As part of the contract, Boeing will provide aircrew and maintenance training for the Navy beginning in 2012, in addition to logistics support, spares, support equipment and tools. The training system will include a full-motion, full-visual Operational Flight Trainer that simulates the flight crew stations, and a Weapons Tactics Trainer for the mission crew stations.

"This contract is the result of the Boeing and Navy team's hard work and commitment, and moves us a step closer to P-8A full-rate production," said Chuck Dabundo, Boeing vice president and P-8 program manager. "We've assembled and flown the first LRIP plane and continue to focus on building P-8A aircraft on cost and on schedule."

"LRIP-II brings the P-8A program one step closer to delivering the Poseidon to the fleet," said Capt. Scott Dillon, P-8A deputy program manager for the Navy.

Boeing completed assembly of the first LRIP-I aircraft at its Renton, Wash., facility this summer. The aircraft subsequently completed a successful first flight July 7, 2011, from Renton Field to Boeing Field, which marked its transition from fabrication and assembly to mission system installation and checkout in Seattle.

The Poseidon team is using a first-in-industry in-line production process that draws on Boeing's Next-Generation 737 production system. All P-8A-unique aircraft modifications are made in sequence during fabrication and assembly.

The team has built and is testing six flight-test and two ground-test aircraft under the U.S. Navy System Development and Demonstration contract awarded to Boeing in 2004. Four flight-test aircraft -- T1, T2, T3 and T5 -- are conducting testing at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md. The program's static test plane, S1, completed its test program in January. S2, the fatigue test plane, will begin testing next year. Initial operational capability is planned for 2013.

A derivative of the Next-Generation 737-800, the Poseidon is built by a Boeing-led industry team that includes CFM International, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Spirit AeroSystems, BAE Systems and GE Aviation.

U.S. Navy to Christen USNS Medgar Evers

The U.S. Navy will christen and launch dry cargo/ammunition ship the USNS Medgar Evers, Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011, during a 9 a.m. PST ceremony at the General Dynamics NASSCO shipyard in San Diego. The ship is named to honor civil rights activist Medgar Evers.

Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus willdeliver the ceremony’s principal address. Serving as the ship’s sponsor is Myrlie Evers Williams, widow of the ship’s namesake. Theceremony will include the time-honored Navy tradition of the sponsor breaking a bottle of champagne across the bow to formally christen the ship.

Continuing the Lewis and Clark-class (T-AKE) tradition of honoring legendary pioneers and explorers, the Navy’s newest underway replenishment ship recognizes Medgar Evers(1925-1963), who became active in the civil rights movement after returning from overseas service in World War II.

Designated T-AKE 13, Medgar Evers is the 13th of an expected class of 14 dry cargo/ammunition ships, all of which will be operated by the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command (MSC). Evers is being built by General Dynamics NASSCO shipyard in San Diego. Elevenof the T-AKEs are slated to serve as Combat Logistics Force (CLF) ships, and threeare slated to become part of the Maritime Prepositioning Force. Combat Logistics Force ships help the Navy maintain a worldwide forward presence by delivering ammunition, food, fuel and other supplies to U.S. and allied ships at sea. Currently all 11T-AKEs operating today conduct CLF missions.

Maritime Prepositioning Force ships are continuously deployed to strategic locations worldwide carrying U.S. Marine Corps cargo, which is ready for rapid delivery to Marines ashore if needed.

The first Navy ship named after Evers is the T-AKE 13. Aspart of MSC, T-AKE 13 is designated as a United States Naval Ship (USNS) and will be crewed by civil service mariners. For CLF missions, the T-AKEs’ crews include a small department of sailors. Like the other dry cargo/ammunition ships, T-AKE 13 is designed to operate independently for extended periods at sea and can carry two helicopters and their crews. The ship is 689 feet in length, has an overall beam of 106 feet and a navigational draft of 30 feet. Evers displaces approximately 42,000 tons and is capable of reaching a speed of 20 knots using a single-shaft, diesel-electric propulsion system.

Additional information about the T-AKE class of ship is available on line at defpro]http://goo.gl/xkoky.

U.S. To Buy Decommissioned British Harrier Jets


WASHINGTON and LONDON - Britain has agreed to sell all of its 74 decommissioned Harrier jump jets, along with engines and spare parts, to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps - a move expected to help the Marines operate Harriers into the mid-2020s and provide extra planes to replace aging two-seat F-18D Hornet strike fighters.

Rear Adm. Mark Heinrich, chief of the U.S. Navy's Supply Corps, confirmed the two-part deal Nov. 10 during a conference in New York sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch in association with Defense News.
Related Topics

Heinrich negotiated the $50 million purchase of all Harrier spare parts, while Rear Adm. Donald Gaddis, the

U.S. Navy's program executive officer for tactical aircraft, is overseeing discussions to buy the Harrier aircraft and their Rolls-Royce engines, Heinrich said.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence in London confirmed the Disposal Services Agency was in talks with the U.S. Navy for the sale of the Harriers. The deal had yet to be concluded, he said Nov. 11.

Britain retired its joint force of Royal Air Force and Royal Navy Harrier aircraft late last year in one of the most controversial moves of the defense reductions, which also cut the aircraft carriers that operated the jets, other warships, maritime patrol planes and personnel.

Most of the retired Harriers are stored at the Royal Air Force base at Cottesmore, England.

They have been undergoing minimum fleet maintenance, including anti-deterioration measures, in order to keep them airworthy, Heinrich said.

A spokesman for the U.S. Navy's Naval Air Systems Command declined Nov. 11 to comment on the deal, deferring to the British military.

An MoD source said Nov. 11 that he thought both deals could be signed in the next week or two. The MoD source confirmed that the entire fleet of 74 Harrier aircraft was involved in the sale.

Heinrich noted that payment details were the only outstanding issue on the parts deal discussions, and he said the purchase will give the U.S. Marines a relatively economical way to get their hands on key components to keep the Harrier fleet running.

Transport dock San Diego completes Navy trials

PASCAGOULA, Miss.—The amphibious transport dock San Diego—also called LPD 22—has successfully completed its Navy acceptance trials, Ingalls Shipbuilding said.

Shipbuilders will spend the next month putting the final touches on the LPD 17-class vessel to be delivered in mid-December, The Mississippi Press reported (bit.ly/sb7qSe).

San Diego will be homeported in its namesake city, joining USS New Orleans and USS Green Bay.

The San Diego completed a two-day sea trial on Thursday, the shipyard said Friday.

Sea trials test the ship's main propulsion, steering, communications suite and deck missions systems. Tests on anchor handling, ballasting/de-ballasting the well deck and ventilation systems were also performed at sea.
"It's amazing what 25,000 tons of steel can do sailing through the Gulf of Mexico," said Doug Lounsberry, vice president and program manager of the LPD 17 program.
The 684-foot-long vessel's primary mission is to transport up to 800 Marines, their fighting vehicles and aircraft.
It is the sixth in the LPD 17-class built by Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc.'s Ingalls Shipbuilding division.

BAE Systems and AVX Aircraft Company Join to Compete for US Navy’s MRMUAS
US Navy - Page 29 Avnews-news-logo-150x25BAE Systems and AVX Aircraft Company have combined expertise in system and subsystem integration and rotorcraft design to compete for the U.S. Navy’s Medium Range Maritime Unmanned Aerial System (MRMUAS). The MRMUAS will provide a multi-intelligence, reconfigurable platform for operation from all air-capable ships. The joint team recently submitted its response to the Navy’s Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to develop this future sea and land-based vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system.

This solution integrates AVX’s patented new aircraft configuration with BAE Systems’ onboard common autonomous mission systems, payloads, mission control system and support capabilities to provide the U.S. Navy a weapon system that exceeds MRMUAS mission requirements. The team’s highly capable, flexible and affordable weapon system leverages state-of-the-art subsystems, a modular open system architecture and a common mission system design that facilitates reuse.

After examining a range of air vehicle options for MRMUAS, including modifying existing commercial and military helicopters, BAE Systems and AVX concluded the Navy’s requirements cannot be met by systems currently on the market. The team brings together AVX’s extensive rotorcraft experience and BAE Systems’ system and subsystem integration expertise, to provide the Navy a weapon system that exceeds MRMUAS mission requirements at low total ownership cost.

The deckhouse for DDG 1000 under construction at Ingalls Shipbuilding's Composite Center of Excellence.

08:29 GMT, December 5, 2011 PASCAGOULA, Miss. | Huntington Ingalls Industries announced that the company's Ingalls Shipbuilding division has been awarded an advance procurement contract for work on the U.S. Navy's third Zumwalt-class destroyer, DDG 1002. The contract is valued at $46 million, with the majority of the work taking place at the company's Composite Center of Excellence in Gulfport.

"Strategically, this is a very important contract to our company and specifically to the composite shipbuilders working in Gulfport," said Karrie Trauth, Ingalls Shipbuilding's DDG 1000 program manager. "The Gulfport facility is a national asset in terms of composite capability and capacity. Our shipbuilders continue to prove this on a daily basis with the significant work they are performing in composites for U.S. Navy shipbuilding programs. With this funding, we can prepare our facility and provide the necessary resources for our talented shipbuilders to continue working on these complex products."

The funding for this contract allows Ingalls to purchase material and equipment in support of DDG 1002 advanced construction activities, as well as provide engineering and production support services.

Navy christens submarine Mississippi in Groton




GROTON, Conn. — With the smash of a champagne bottle, the Navy christened its newest submarine on Saturday as the Mississippi, the ninth member of a new generation of attack subs hailed as the world’s most complex pieces of machinery.

A Navy band struck up “Anchors Aweigh” as the submarine’s sponsor, a deputy assistant Navy secretary, smashed the bottle against its sail. The uniformed crew stood atop the 377-foot-long submarine in a dock at a Groton shipyard as Navy admirals, Congress members from Mississippi and Connecticut and other officials addressed the crowd of roughly 5,500 who turned out for the ceremony.

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, a former Mississippi governor, said the submarine was designed for flexibility, with the ability to conduct surveillance in shallow waters and deliver Navy SEALs or other special forces without being detected.

“Mississippi is built to excel in traditional submarine areas of warfare: anti-submarine, anti-surface, strike warfare,” Mabus said. “But she is also built to excel in nontraditional ones: special operations, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, irregular warfare.”

The Mississippi is the latest in the Virginia class of submarines, which are built in partnership between Groton-based Electric Boat and Newport News Shipbuilding at a cost of about $2.6 billion each. They carry torpedoes as well as Tomahawk missiles and have features including a torpedo room that can be refigured to hold Navy SEALs.

The submarine will be commissioned as the Mississippi in a June ceremony in Gulfport, Miss.

On behalf of Mississippi’s 3 million residents, Gov. Haley Barbour said he was honored to claim the submarine as their own. He said it would continue the proud legacy of the four other Navy vessels to carry the name Mississippi, including the steam frigate that Commodore William Perry commanded when he opened American trade with Japan in the 1850s.

“The Mississippi will be an incredible platform for defending our shores and projecting our power,” Barbour said.

The 7,800-ton submarine will carry a crew of 132 officers and sailors, led by Navy Capt. John McGrath, on standard deployments of six months. Its nuclear reactor is designed to power the submarine for its service life of 30 years or longer, propelling the sub at speeds exceeding 25 knots submerged.

Mabus said the complexity of the submarine is a testament to the skill and dedication of America’s ship builders.

“When you look at the ship, you know American exceptionalism will not only survive, it will prevail,” he said.

Electric Boat expects to deliver the Mississippi a year ahead of schedule and $50 million below the projected cost.

With the Defense Department facing potentially huge budget cuts as Congress looks to trim the national deficit, Navy officers and elected officials who spoke Saturday praised the Virginia-class program as a model example of how to find efficiencies with contractors. Rep. Joe Courtney and Sen. Richard Blumenthal, both of Connecticut, praised the work of contractors and shipyard employees involved in constructing the Mississippi.

“Its might and magnificence are literally as awe inspiring as the sea itself. It is our steel beneath the sea,” Blumenthal said.

Construction of the Mississippi began in February 2007 and the submarine needs only sea trials, final outfitting and other tests before it is ready for delivery.

The ship’s sponsor, Allison Stiller, held the champagne bottle over her head triumphantly after christening the sub.

“I endow her with my tenacity, compassion and love of family and friends,” said Stiller, the deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for ship programs.

Le dernier-né des porte-avions américains a retrouvé samedi la base de Norfolk, en Virginie, sur la côte Est des Etats-Unis. L'USS George H.W. Bush achève, ainsi, son premier déploiement opérationnel. Une mission de 7 mois au cours de laquelle il a manoeuvré en Atlantique, Méditerranée, mer Rouge et océan Indien. Le porte-avions est rentré à sa base en compagnie de son escorte, composée du croiseur lance-missiles USS Anzio, ainsi que des destroyers lance-missiles USS Truxtun, USS Mitsher et USS. Le croiseur USS Gettysburg, qui appartenait également au George H.W. Carrier Strike Group (GHWB CSG) a, quant à lui, regagné sa base de Mayport (Floride).

Dixième et dernière unité du type Nimitz/Theodore Roosevelt, le CVN 77 a été mis sur cale en 2003 aux chantiers Huntington Ingalls Industries de Newport News et remis à l'US Navy en janvier 2009. S'en est suivie une longue période d'essais, 7 mois d'arrêt technique et une montée en puissance progressive de l'équipage et du groupe aérien embarqué, sans compter la capacité du navire à s'intégrer dans un groupe aéronaval. Une fois opérationnel, le bâtiment avait quitté Norfolk le 11 mai dernier pour son premier grand déploiement, dans les zones de responsabilité des 5ème et 6ème flottes.
Long de 333 mètres pour un déplacement de 98.000 tonnes en charge, le navire, armé par 5600 marins, peut embarquer 68 avions et hélicoptères. Il dispose de deux réacteurs à eau pressurisée fournissant une puissance de 205 MW et assurant une vitesse maximale de 31 noeuds. Pour son autodéfense, le CVN 77 compte, en plus de sa chasse embarquée, deux lanceurs verticaux (24 missiles ESSM) et deux systèmes surface-air à courte portée RAM.
