Shock tests for US Navy
On Friday, June 18, the USS Gerald R. Ford from the US Navy successfully completed the first scheduled explosive event as part of Full Ship Shock Trials (FSST).
The first-in-class aircraft carrier was designed using advanced computer modeling methods, testing, and analysis to ensure the ship is hardened to withstand battle conditions, and these shock trials provide data used in validating the shock hardness of the ship. Our ScioTeq Defense & Security displays on board of the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier passed the tests with flying colors.
Proud to be a trusted supplier to the US Navy and to contribute to capabilities of this impressive vessel.
