For the first time in more than 40 years, we’re commissioning the lead ship of a new class of aircraft carriers!
The Gerald R. Ford class incorporates advances in technology such as a new reactor plant, propulsion system, electric plant, Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS), Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG), machinery control, Dual Band Radar and integrated warfare systems.
Compared to Nimitz-class carriers, the Gerald R. Ford-class carriers have more than 23 new or modified systems.
