David Johnson.California required 65 months to build – five months less than the previous submarine, USS New Mexico (SSN 779), delivered by what was then Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding. California, the eighth Virginia-class submarine, is the first delivered under the HII–NNS banner.Prior to delivery, California passed a battery of at-sea tests including the Board of Inspection and Survey Trials.“California’s successful run through each successive sea trial, and its early delivery, means the Navy will add another highly-capable, eagerly-anticipated Virginia-class submarine to the fleet to meet operational demands,” said Rear Adm.(Select) Michael Jabaley, Virginia-class program manager. “California, along with her sister ships, will provide unmatched capabilities to the fleet while honoring the proud traditions of her namesake state.”The next major event for California will be its commissioning Oct. 29 in Norfolk, Va. California’s commissioning is the second-to-last major acquisition milestone for the Virginia-class program in 2011. The christening ceremony for PCU Mississippi (SSN 782) will cap off the year this December, in Groton, Conn.Virginia-class submarines are designed to dominate the world’s littoral and deep waters while conducting anti-submarine; anti-surface ship; strike; special operation forces; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; irregular warfare; and mine warfare missions. The inherent stealth, endurance, firepower, and sensor suite of these submarines enable them to support five of the six Maritime Strategy core capabilities – sea control, power projection, forward presence, maritime security, and deterrence.[mappress]Source: navy, August 9, 2011; View post tag: PCU View post tag: months View post tag: U.S. Back to overview,Home naval-today U.S. Navy Takes Delivery of PCU California Eight Months Earlier August 9, 2011 View post tag: California
