The U.S. Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), was recently christened, and Honeywell is celebrating the company’s contribution to the ship’s construction.

With a workforce of about 132,000, Honeywell supplied a variety of systems and solutions including electromechanical valve actuators, inertial measurement units and personal protective equipment. Honeywell enabled automation of many functions on the ship as well as a reduced number of parts to be maintained for spares and provisioning, which reduces the overall operating cost. In addition, Honeywell’s personal protective equipment products are contributing to the overall safety of the men and women responsible for protecting our nation.

Ford is the first new carrier design in 40 years and reflects concepts and technologies matured during 100 years of U.S. Navy carrier operations. The ship will soon take its place in the nation’s carrier fleet, where it will continue the legacy of air power “from the sea” as the cornerstone of U.S. military supremacy around the globe.
