The USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) aircraft carrier headed to sea this week for the first time. The ship set out for its first sea trails in which its systems will be tested. Known as Builder’s Sea Trails, the ship’s technologies will be tested by U.S. Navy and Newport News Shipbuilding personnel and observed by the Navy’s Supervisor of Shipbuilding and Naval Sea Systems Command staff.
