Ike CSG is doing a great job on SUSTEX @USNavy Eisenhower (CVN 69) Carrier Strike Group

The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) Carrier Strike Group is busy with sustainment exercises to maintain readiness capabilities and the ability to deploy worldwide on short notice. A carrier strike group operates as a team and these types of exercises are critical in honing the skills of the group so they can carry out their mission which includes anti-air warfare, anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, strike warfare, and interdiction’s at sea.

Ike CSG is doing a great job on SUSTEX. Sustaining the readiness of this strike group–so it is ready to respond to a crisis anywhere on the planet–is a bargain and an important part of what our Navy’s Optimized Fleet Response Plan does for the nation,” said Adm. Phil Davidson, commander, U.S. Fleet Forces.
