Sabre Systems, Inc. Supports Historic USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) Arrested Landing and Electromagnetic Launch Systems

August 1, 2017

The USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), the first new US aircraft carrier designed in 40 years, is a reflection of modern naval engineering. For the past 60 years, aircraft carriers have launched fixed-wing aircraft using steam catapults, complicated systems requiring large crews to operate and maintain. That all changed on July 28, 2017 when the USS Gerald R. Ford successfully launlinkedin-photo-post-EMAILS-CVN78-2017 (002)ched its first aircraft using an electromagnetic catapult. History was made when Commander Jamie Struck successfully landed an F/A-18F Super Hornet aboard the USS Gerald R. Ford with the first arrested landing using the Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) system and again when he launched from the flight deck by the Electromagnetic Launch System (EMALS).

Engineers and technical experts from Sabre Systems, Inc.’s Lakehurst, NJ office supported the Navy’s ship integration and testing teams for the new AAG and EMAL systems. A software controlled system, AAG offers greater reliability and safety to a wider range of aircraft. According to the US Navy, the built in testing and dialogistic features deliver reliable and easier to maintain systems with a higher launch energy capacity than previous systems.

According to Sabre’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Glen Ives, “We are so proud of the Sabre professionals who contributed so importantly to this historical Naval Aviation milestone. Their hard work and tireless commitment reflect Sabre’s dedication to naval engineering and innovation and ultimately in the safety of our warfighters who rely on these critical systems.” Sabre Systems congratulates the crew of the CVN 78 and Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) on this accomplishment.  Bravo Zulu!

Sabre Systems, Inc. is proud to have contributed to the historic naval achievement of the USS Gerald R. Ford’s first arrested landing and electromagnetic launch.
