of highly reliable valve actuators will permit ships to refuel with
much greater confidence of avoiding environmental spills and
accidents. The DDG IFFCS test bed could be exported to all surface

actuators will be procured and installed on USS BARRY for rigorous
at-sea testing and evaluation.
40 ships of DDG_51 Class. Potential extension to all surface ships if
IFFCS system is validated.
