Tacoma Boatbuilding Launches

Tenth T-AGOS For Navy

The tenth in a projected fleet of 26 Navy oceanographic surveillance ships (T-AGOS) was recently chris- tened "Invincible" at Tacoma Boat- building Company in Tacoma,

Wash.

The USNS Invincible (T-AGOS- 10) will be operated by the Military

Sealift Command for the Space and

Warfare Systems Command. The

T-AGOS class ocean surveillance ships are named to convey positive traits of capability or accomplish- ment. The 224-foot-long Invincible will be homeported at Little Creek,

Va.

Richard E. Metrey, Technical

Director, David Taylor Naval Ship

Research and Development Center, was the principal speaker, and his wife served as the ship's sponsor.

The primary mission of the USNS

Invincible and her nine sister ships is to provide platforms and trans- portation for the Surveillance

Towed Array Sensor (SURTASS), a passive undersea surveillance sys- tem. The T-AGOS ships will collect, process and transmit acoustic data.

The 26-ship fleet will operate worldwide, with half being home- ported in Little Creek, Va., and the remainder in Honolulu, Hawaii. Ta- coma Boatbuilding has built all 10

T-AGOS completed to date.

After operating with a Civil Ser- vice mariner crew employed by the

MSC for approximately one year, the Invincible will be manned by a civilian crew under contract by the

MSC.
