The effort is the first of two maintenance and modernization availabilities designed to the equip the ship with the latest technology and equipment through its planned service life. USS Barry’s recent availability addressed hull strengthening, crew facilities, and improvements to machinery control and integrated bridge and navigation systems

DDG 52 is now the fifth destroyer to successfully undergo HM&E upgrades signifying this program is well underway and executing as planned,” said Capt. Brian Eckerle, surface combatants program manager, Naval Sea Systems Command Surface Warfare Directorate. “These significant upgrades enable these capable ships to return to the fleet fully modernized and ready for tasking.”

USS Barry will undergo a second maintenance and modernization availability in fiscal year 2013. Planned upgrades include combat system capabilities and enhancing the ship’s self defense systems

Through planned modernization and upgrade programs, the directorate will equip today’s surface ships with the latest technologies and systems to sustain them in the fleet through their service lives.
