The special selected restricted availability of the Gettysburg will begin in June and be completed in December. BAE Systems’ Norfolk, Virginia shipyard will perform the repair, maintenance, and modernization work aboard the 567-foot-long ship. The Gettysburg is equipped with the Aegis Combat System, which provides air defense for aircraft carrier battle groups. The ship was commissioned in 1991.

“We have a very successful history of working on the Navy’s fleet of Aegis cruisers,” said Dave Thomas, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Norfolk shipyard. “This maintenance availability will prepare the Gettysburg for more extensive modernization later.”
