Under New Management
The Navy has
established a new program executive office to oversee the planning and
procurement of John F. Kennedy (CVN-79) and follow-on Gerald Ford-class
aircraft carriers, Naval Sea Systems Command said in a July 27 statement. Capt.
Doug Oglesby will lead the new program office, PMS-379. The future carriers
program office, PMS-378, will oversee only the Gerald Ford (CVN-78). The move
will allow the program to begin continuous production while ensuring CVN-78
completes construction and delivery, according to the statement. When
the Ford is finished, the programs will merge back together.
