Abstract:Steadily rising shipbuilding costs, approaching block obsolescence of the bulk of our active fleet, and the rapid advance of weapons technology are the major problems facing the U. S. Navy today. The ability of the gas turbine to make important contributions to combatting each of these problems has resulted in a rapid rise in its use. Specific current programs and applications are discussed.
