U.S. Navy Completes Selective Restricted Availability, Sea Trials for USS Russell

The U.S. Navy conducted sea trials for the USS Russell (DDG 59), after BAE Systems completed its 22-month Selective Restricted Availability work for the ship.

The USS Russell underwent the light-off assessment early in April for the initial underway from Naval Base San Diego, while the engineering crew prepared the plant and supplemental services for habitation, the U.S. Navy said Friday.

Capt. David Fowler, deputy commodore of Destroyer Squadron 23, participated in the USS Russell’s Contractor Sea Trials, which assessed ship integrity, operations and installations.

The ship was also paced through full power maneuvers and air defense and weapons exercises as the crew conducted maintenance, tests and training.

The USS Russell crew currently implements a Continuous Maintenance Availability in preparation for Type Commander Sea Trials.
