The island of the USS Gerald Ford (CVN-78) has landed on the flight deck. That's a major milestone in construction, and the prospective Captain, and a number of the crew have already been assigned. There was a ceremony yesterday at the placement of the Island.

The Ford is set to launch this year, and be officially delivered to the Navy in 2015. She is reported to be 90% structurally complete at this point, with 446 lifts, of 500 completed.

Warning, extremely long video (90+ minutes):

From the thread title, I thought they'd run another vessel aground!


Second line... still chuckling!

No, that would have been "CVN-78 Island Crashing Ceremony".

I've always been very curious and always wanted to know, is there a way for an adversary to place a tracking device or something like that on one of these things as its getting built? And its always off unless they get a signal or some kind of radio signal when they are at war?

Theoretically you could, but it would be easier to do something like that with the computer chips. The military found a lot of counterfeit computer chips recently, some of which would work like a trojan and open a back door into the system. Putting something physically on the ship would be extremely difficult, because there are a huge number of people working on her at any given point, and a lot of inspections performed before anything is signed off.

Sorry Laxpla,

But I find this to be very funny.

If you were on a Navy ship and dialed a cell phone and then hit Send...how long do you think it would take for someone on board to electronically notice it??

How about from intelligence aircraft flying overhead..or other nearby ship..would they notice it?

This is not gear one gets from Radio Shack...and not all of this gear is on the carrier. Other Navy ships also have this type of gear.

A Navy ship is a beautiful tool for sucking signals out of the air..recording this and then sending it off via a satellite or other overhead aircraft to somewhere that this information's can be deciphered and put to use. This means out at sea or even sitting in foreign ports of call.

Another thing you need to know ..outside of what they feed you on television and in movies....we spy on our friends as well as our enemies. There are no good guys in this business.

This even today includes the American people themselves on whom our government also spies.

I haven't read a Clancy book in years now...does he cover this topic to help people learn to think outside the box.

Or is he still playing good cop/ bad cop...good guys and bad guys??


Another thing to think about..such a remote operated device ..turned on by a remote signal. Under the construction of a ship...there are so many stray signals running about from construction people with walkie talkie, and cell phones etc. Also when doing alot of welding during construction..there are so many wire feed welding machines going on ..also carbon Arc ..electric cutting machines. Tig welders too.

All these electric welding machines put out a significant energy field when being used. Under Construction is not the proper time or place to be putting such electronic gadgets on board.
You will also see signs on board a ship..not to run welding lines in a specific proximity to certain computer areas because of the energy fields generated by these welding processes.

Hope this helps with your question.
