Precision Actuation for CVN-78 Aircraft Carrier

Moog is at the forefront of the Navy’s conversion to electric machine systems, designing and developing extremely high power, high force electromechanical systems for use onboard CVN-78. The ships power generating steam turbines are throttled by Moog servoactuators. Moog also provides trip throttle control to keep the turbines safe in an emergency.
