    Navy Launches First Aircraft Using EMALS 02:33

    Navy Launches First Aircraft Using EMALS

    by NVNS (12/21/10) 1,298 views

    LAKEHURST, N.J. (Dec. 16, 2010) The Navy launches the first aircraft, an F/A-18E Super Hornet, from the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) at Naval Air Systems Command, Lakehurst, N.J. The Navy has used steam catapults for more than 50 years to launch aircraft from aircraft carriers. EMALS is a complete carrier-based launch system designed for Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) and future Ford-class carriers. Newer, heavier and faster aircraft will result in launch energy requirements approaching the limits of the steam catapult, increasing maintenance on the system. The system’s technology allows for a smooth acceleration at both high and low speeds, increasing the carrier’s ability to launch aircraft in support of the warfighter. EMALS will provide the capability for launching all current and future carrier air wing platforms from lightweight unmanned aerial vehicles to heavy strike fighters. The first ship components are on schedule to be delivered to CVN 78 in 2011. (U.S. Navy video/Released)

    WATERS WEST OF THE KOREAN PENINSULA (Nov. 30, 2010) The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) conducts flight operations under low visibility conditions. George Washington is in the waters west of the Korean peninsula participating in a training exercise with the Republic of Korea (ROK) Navy. This exercise reinforces U.S. commitment to the ROK, regional partners and to freedom of movement throughout the western pacific. (U.S. Navy video/Released)

    SH-60S Biofuel Test

    by NVNS (11/19/10) 16 views

    NAS PATUXENT RIVER, Md. (Nov. 18, 2010) A U.S. Navy MH-60S Sea Hawk helicopter assigned to the Blackjacks of Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (HX) 21tests a 50/50 Camelina seed-based biofuel blend. The mission of the MH60S is anti-surface warfare, combat support, humanitarian disaster relief and search and rescue, medical evacuation, special warfare and airborne mine countermeasures. The test demonstrates another step toward the certification of fuels from non-petroleum sources for use in all Navy and Marine Corps aircraft.

    ATLANTIC OCEAN (Oct. 18, 2010) Aviation Boatswain's Mate (Equipment) Airman Daniel Booher, from Bristol, Tenn., guides an F/A-18E Super Hornet into the catapult shuttle aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65). Once the catapult fires, the hold-back breaks free as the shuttle moves rapidly forward, dragging the aircraft by the launch bar. The aircraft accelerates from zero (relative to the carrier deck) to approximately 173 mph in about 2 seconds. Booher, 27, has been trained to constantly look for danger on the flight deck. Aircraft are constantly moving as they are staged for launch and the opportunity for serious injury is ever-present. (U.S. Navy video/Released)
