Deployed with the Fleet

Our Contribution

In 2017, APL staff members deployed on U.S. Navy Commander, Task Force 70 (CTF-70) patrols aboard the carrier USS Ronald Reagan—an assignment that allowed our engineers to experience the fleet’s challenges and operational workflows, and gather important data to feed future analyses and technology demonstrations in operationally relevant environments. In the first tour—focused on the electromagnetic posture of the battle group—APL staff members quickly developed and deployed custom equipment to provide unique data-collection capabilities that led to improved fleet tactics, techniques, and procedures.
