Ford-Class Aircraft Carrier: Congress Should Consider Revising Cost Cap Legislation to Include All Construction Costs
Michele Mackin (au)
The Navy is developing the Ford-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to serve as the future centerpiece of the carrier strike group. The Ford class is introducing a number of advanced technologies to the fleet in the areas of propulsion, aircraft launch and recovery, weapons handling, and survivability. These technologies are intended to create operational efficiencies while enabling a 25% increase in sortie rates as compared to legacy Nimitz-class aircraft carriers and will enable Ford-class carriers to operate with reduced manpower. The lead ship, CVN 78, has been under construction since 2008, and early construction on CVN 79 is underway. In 2007 Congress established a cap for procurement costs äóî which has been adjusted over time. In Sept. 2013, GAO reported on a $2.3 billion increase in CVN 78 construction costs. This report assesses (1) the extent to which CVN 78 will be delivered within revised cost and schedule goals; (2) if CVN 78 will demonstrate its required capabilities before ship deployment; and (3) the steps the Navy is taking to achieve CVN 79 cost goals. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
