Third Littoral Combat Ship Completes Builder Trials

A Lockheed Martin industry team completed Builder's Sea Trials for Fort Worth, the nation's third littoral combat ship.

The trials - a coordinated effort between the U.S. Navy and the Lockheed Martin team including Marinette Marine Corporation (MMC) - were conducted in the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan.

They included operational testing of the vessel's propulsion, communications, navigation and mission systems, as well as all support systems.
