The latest addition to the United States Navy's list of sea-going vessels is the USS Gerald R. Ford, the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier. The vessel is not only new as an addition, but brings with it an incredible array of technology.  Now, the ship has successfully launched and landed an aircraft with advanced digital, magnetic technology, which replaces the older steam-driven catapult system.

"Today, USS Gerald R. Ford made history," said Adm. Phil Davidson, commander of the U.S. Fleet Forces. "Great work by the Ford team and all the engineers who have worked hard to get the ship ready for this milestone."
