The United States Navy’s Modernisation Plan: Ships Being Constructed

submarine

The process of transforming a U.S. Naval ship from an idea to a fully commissioned vessel is a complex and time-consuming one, involving multiple significant milestones. It all starts with the design phase, during which a team of proficient naval architects and engineers collaborate to create detailed blueprints that align with the operational requirements of the Navy.

Multiple revisions and simulations optimize performance and efficiency while standardizing blueprints for naval categorization. Once the ship design is finalized, the shipbuilding process commences at a shipyard. Technicians meticulously assemble the ship’s hull, propulsion systems, weaponry, and electronic components. The first step is laying the keel, which serves as the foundation for the entire construction. Throughout the process, stringent quality control measures are implemented to ensure the ship’s structural integrity and functionality.

After completing the final form, the delivery undergoes a series of comprehensive tests and trials. Among these tests are sea trials, where the ship is tested under actual conditions. Any issues or defects are addressed before proceeding. This procedure is repeated for several vessels that will soon be incorporated into the U.S. Army’s fleet.

We have arranged the ships in alphabetical order, including those that are at different stages of construction and commissioning, but only those that have had their keel laid. We have collected additional information about each ship’s hull number, class, construction location, and current status from CEOWORLD magazine. It’s important to note that while some of these ships may have been built, they are awaiting commissioning as of early September. Also, please check out the U.S. Army ships that are being decommissioned and their anticipated dates.

After putting in a lot of effort in the design, production, and testing of the ship, the eagerly awaited commissioning ceremony has finally arrived. Commissioning ceremonies are a longstanding tradition that marks a ship’s entry into active naval service. These ceremonies usually involve the ship’s crew, high-ranking military officials, and distinguished guests. During the event, the ship is officially named and its commanding officer takes charge.

The U.S. Navy has recently added new Virginia-class nuclear submarines and Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers to their fleet. Moreover, there are plans for several new Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carriers to replace the aging Nimitz-class carriers that were first introduced over fifty years ago. These carriers are expected to enter service in the next decade.
