E. Meyer at a ceremony celebrating the deliverance of the 100th Aegis Weapons System to the Navy. The ship was named after retired Rear Adm. Meyer, who is widely regarded as the "The Father of Aegis" after spearheading the development of the defense system, and will fittingly receive the 100th system.
