HII will provide engineering services, maintenance and operator training as well as technical and repair services in support of maintenance and planning for the overhaul, modernization and repair of shipboard elevators, cargo-handling equipment and associated systems installed within U.S. Navy aircraft carriers.

The work, contracted by Naval Sea Systems Command, will be performed onboard U.S. naval aircraft carriers in Norfolk, Virginia; San Diego, California; Bremerton and Everett, Washington; Japan, and other fleet concentration areas to be determined.

For more than 75 years, the American shipbuilders at Newport News have designed and built more than 30 aircraft carriers, including the world’s first nuclear-powered carrier, USS Enterprise (CVN 65), and all 10 of the Nimitz-class nuclear-powered carriers. Today, our shipbuilders are designing and building the next-generation of aircraft carriers—the Gerald R. Ford class. The first-in-class, Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), was delivered to the U.S. Navy in May 2017.

The aircraft carrier features advanced capabilities that will increase the power of our military’s fleet with reduced manning. Construction of John F. Kennedy (CVN 79) began in February 2011, and was christened and launched in December 2019. Advance fabrication of the new Enterprise (CVN 80) is underway.
