    USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78)     

    An F-21 Kfir fighter jet conducts a fly-by of USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) during sea based developmental testing (SBDT) of the integrated combat systems. SBDT is conducted to stress the ship's combat system capabilities to include the integration of new technologies Dual Band Radar with Rolling Airframe Missile and Sea Sparrow missiles. During SBDT operation 6B, Ford ran a risk reduction scenario for an AQM-37 high diving missile, an exercise that will be required during Combat System Ship Qualification Trial in order for the ship's combat systems to be considered fully operation capable.
