Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson successfully completed a Planned Incremental Availability (PIA).

The successful coordination and team effort allowed the completion of the PIA 4 days early.

Vinson started the maintenance period in June 2022.

This accomplishment saved the U.S. Navy 4 million dollars.

Throughout the PIA, the ship received upgrades and repairs that enhanced its capabilities and lifecycle.

PIAs are critical to a ship’s overall health to continue to operate the ship for the planned 50-year lifecycle.

The project team executed 1,571 work items of production completing 17,000 certification phases.

Vinson is required to complete a series of inspections, certifications, and events to prepare for the next deployment.
