USS Gerald R. Ford Conducts Final Explosive Event, Completing Full Ship Shock Trials


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON, D.C.— USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) successfully conducted a third explosive event off the coast of Jacksonville, FL, on 8 Aug., marking the completion of the ship’s Full Ship Shock Trials (FSST)

Shock Trials validate a ship’s shock hardness and ability to sustain operations in a simulated combat environment using live ordnance.  During the four-month testing evolution, the first-in-class aircraft carrier withstood the impact of three 40,000-pound underwater blasts, released at distances progressively closer to the ship.
