About DDG-968:

  • The 8,040-ton USS Arthur W Radford (DD 968) was the eighth Spruance Class destroyer to be built. She was commissioned on 16 April 1977, and was notably made the test platform for the Navy’s AEM/S (Advanced Enclosed Mast System) in 1998. This system is easily identifiable with its unique mast superstructure that encloses antennas and sensitive equipment, with the added benefit of a reduced radar signature and less maintenance. The revolutionary mast also allows the incorporation of new technology in the future generation of stealthy ships.
