Abstract:

CVN-78, CVN-79, and CVN-80 are the first three ships in the Navys new Gerald R. Ford CVN-78 class of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers CVNs. CVN-78 was procured in FY2008 and is being funded with congressionally authorized four-year incremental funding in FY2008-FY2011. The Navys proposed FY2011 budget estimates the ships procurement cost at 11,531.0 million i.e., about 11.5 billion in then-year dollars, and requests 1,731.3 million in procurement funding as the final increment to complete this estimated procurement cost. CVN-79 is scheduled for procurement in FY2013, and has received advance procurement funding since FY2007. The Navys proposed FY2011 budget estimates the ships procurement cost at 10,413.1 million i.e., about 10.4 billion in then-year dollars and requests 908.3 million in advance procurement funding for the ship.
