CVN 78 Ship Specifications Certified

Thursday, August 10, 2006
The CVN 78 ship specifications were certified at a Senior Stakeholder Board/Executive Steering Group meeting held recently, after 12 months of specification writing and three months of intense reading sessions. The Naval Sea Systems Command’s (NAVSEA) Ship Design, Integration and Engineering Directorate (SEA 05), in cooperation with Northrop Grumman Newport News (the Lead Design shipyard), led efforts to develop the ship specifications with support from across the Navy enterprise.

NAVSEA and the Program Executive Officer for Aircraft Carriers (PEO Carriers) will commemorate the certification of the ship specifications for the CVN 78 Class Aircraft Carriers in a signing and awards ceremony to be held Sept. 5 at the Washington Navy Yard. The CVN 78 ship specifications will be signed by PEO Carriers Rear Adm. David Architzel, and NAVSEA Deputy Commander for Ship Design, Integration and Engineering Rear Adm. Kevin M. McCoy (SEA 05). NAVSEA Commander Vice Adm. Paul E. Sullivan, will present an Award of Merit for Group Achievement in recognition of this significant accomplishment in the development of the ship specifications.

This certification of ship specifications marks a major milestone in the future aircraft design process and forms the basis of the technical data package used to prepare a ship construction contract.
