UltraStrip Completes Navy's New LPD 17 Vessel

Thursday, June 26, 2003
UltraStrip Systems, Inc., the developer of robotic ship hull cleaning equipment, completed the surface preparation work on the Navy's new San Antonio class amphibious assault ship, LPD 17 on June 21, 2003, from which they expect to receive over $90,000. UltraStrip President and CEO, Robert O. Baratta, said, "UltraStrip is proud to assist the U.S. Navy in launching this exciting new warship that will help protect our troops and country in the coming years. UltraStrip's highly productive M3500 Robotic System allowed the Navy to have its surface preparation work completed simultaneously with other trades finishing their work. Normally, if the ship were being grit blasted, other trades would not have been able to work while the grit blasting was in progress. The M3500 is also environmentally friendly as it completely contains all the toxic paint material for proper disposal."
