Littoral Combat Ship - USS Little Rock LCS#9 & Fleet
The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is the Navy’s newest class of warship with two variants, the Freedom-Class and Independence-Class. Both warship classes feature Moog components and solutions. Moog’s actuation and stabilization technology is incorporated into the two MK46 naval turrets, each using a 30mm high velocity cannon for shipboard self-defense. The MK46s are part of the surface warfare mission package, a specialized mission package which will be fitted to approximately half of the Freedom-Class and Independence-Class variants in the LCS fleet.
Moog provides the LCS fleet’s tactical air navigation (TACAN) and surveillance system and Independence-Class specific stabilization system servocontrols. The Little Rock will deploy two Sikorsky SH-60 Seahawk®multi-mission helicopters that feature Moog integrated trim/boost servoactuator assemblies for pitch trim, roll trim and yaw boost as well as Moog active vibration controls.
