The following accomplishments highlight Abraham Lincoln’s performance from 1 January 2017 to 12 May 2017:

 

“The crew aboard USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) took a major step forward in its transition from Refueling and Complex Overhaul (RCOH) to redelivery to the fleet by welcoming the return of its aircraft crash and salvage crane on the flight deck on 19 January 2017. The evolution was a joint effort between Lincoln's Air Department and Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department. Sailors assigned to Abraham Lincoln attended the cableway improvement class at the Virginia Advanced Shipbuilding Carrier Integration Center (VASCIC), in Newport News, Virginia from 30 January to 3 February 2017. The goal of the training is to teach Lincoln Sailors to locate and correct cable discrepancies throughout the ship. Commanding officer aboard Abraham Lincoln, Capt. Ron Ravelo, held an All Hands Call with the crew on 3 March 2017, to discuss the ship's return to the fleet later this year. This was the first-time since Abraham Lincoln entered RCOH in 2013 that an All Hands Call has been conducted aboard the ship. Sailors assigned to Abraham Lincoln have the opportunity to effect change within their workcenters as well as command-wide by participating in monthly Command Assessment Team focus groups. Members from Afloat Training Group (ATG) Atlantic assessed the crew of Abraham Lincoln from 18 to 19 April 2017, as part of the Phase III Crew Certification process, a mandatory assessment of the watch stander's ability to take the ship to sea and deal with different emergencies in a non-warfighting scenario, explained Lt. Cmdr. Paul Henderson, Lincoln's training officer. "Crew Cert III ensures that our Sailors are certified to operate safely in areas of navigation, seamanship, damage control and medical response," said Henderson. Abraham Lincoln spent the final days of its four-year RCOH completing its official "Fast Cruise" from 2 to 7 May 2017, in preparation for the ship's long-awaited return to the fleet this month. The Fast Cruise was Lincoln's last training simulation before departing Newport News Shipbuilding in Newport News, Virginia. The purpose of the Fast Cruise was to have the full focus of Lincoln's crew on training, drills and ship-wide evolutions designed to allow Lincoln and her crew to build the confidence and proficiency to return to sea. Abraham Lincoln got underway for Sea Trails on 9 May 2017 following a four-year RCOH at Newport News Shipbuilding, Newport News, Virginia. The four-day Sea Trails marks Abraham Lincoln's first time underway since March 2013. The ship spent its last days in the shipyard completing a five-day "Fast Cruise," from 2 to 7 May 2017, making final preparations for its transit to Naval Station Norfolk. Abraham Lincoln crew fully tested the aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) systems throughout the ship from 9 to 10 May 2017, to support shipboard airwing operations and damage control efforts, while underway for Sea Trials following a four-year RCOH. The combined efforts of Abraham Lincoln's Air, Weapons, and Engineering Departments ensured the ship would be ready for her upcoming carrier qualifications. Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced on 12 May 2017, that the company has redelivered the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln to the U.S. Navy. The redelivery took place following successful Sea Trials that tested the ship's systems following its RCOH at the company's Newport News Shipbuilding division. "The successful completion of Sea Trials and Redelivery of the ship to the Navy is the culmination of over 48 months of teamwork between Newport News shipbuilders, the CVN-72 crew, our government partners and all of our suppliers," said Chris Miner, Newport News' vice president, in-service aircraft carrier programs. "The completion of the refueling and complex overhaul returns a fully recapitalized ship to the fleet, ready to support any mission and serve our nation for another 25 years"” (Ref.

Lincoln Sailors Save Money, Time Using Gold Disk Program

 

As reported on 7 March 2016, “Sailors assigned to USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) use the Navy's 2M (Micro/Miniature) Repair and Gold Disk program to save the Navy a significant amount of money. The Navy developed the Gold Disk Program to save money and time by reducing costs and turnaround time for repairs. "Using the Gold Disk program instead of sending circuit cards out to be replaced, this past fiscal year we have saved roughly $241,000," said Electronics Technician 3rd Class Anton Vasylyuk, assigned to Lincoln's 2M Electronics Division. "It's also saved a lot of time, which is imperative when we're looking at so many deadlines in refueling complex overhaul." A gold disk is a computer compact disk that has trouble shooting routines for thousands of circuit cards the Navy uses for many different electronic components, for example, radars, aircraft parts, Close-in Weapons System (CIWS) or other weapons firing systems. "Gold Disc streamlines the process of troubleshooting problems we may have with circuit cards," said Chief Electronics Technician Brian Achilles. "Instead of waiting months at a time for one to come back from repair, our Sailors work on them themselves, testing the signatures of each card to make sure they are in working order"” (Ref.
