On Oct. 13, the Navy’s top two surface type commanders released a message to the Aegis fleet requiring more frequent diagnostic checks, better maintenance and more hands-on involvement by skippers. The goal, according to the message, is nothing less than to “inculcate a culture of SPY self-sufficiency and ownership.”
One would have hoped the Navy was always managing such an important system properly.
I guess not.
Fortunately the diversity bullies are well sustained. Every world-class Navy certainly needs those parasites.
AEGIS is not a system that you have the option of taking care of it some years, and not so much other years; not unlike nukes.
Looks like the past top leadership could not understand their reason to exist. Yet some think Roughead et al were actually worth something. I never saw it.
