Future USNS Maury Hits The Water

MOSS POINT, Miss. (March 27, 2013) The Military Sealift Command navigation test support ship Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Maury (T-AGS 66) is launched at VT Halter Marine in Moss Point, Miss. Maury is named in honor of Cmdr. Matthew Fontaine Maury, known as the "father of modern oceanography." Designed to perform acoustic, biological, physical and geophysical surveys, Maury will provide the U.S. military with essential information on the ocean environment. The ship is expected to be delivered in 2014. (U.S. Navy photo by David Stoltz)
