Edmond Easter Named

Navidyne Vice President accordance with contract terms.

With 20 ships of the same class still under construction, as a result of contracts previously- awarded to Todd in fiscal years 1975-79, this award gives the company a Naval shipbuilding backlog of $1.5 billion for the 23 ships now under contracts.

The first Todd-built FFG, the

USS Wadsworth (FFG-9), con- structed at the Los Angeles Di- vision, joined the fleet early in

April this year. The second, the

Duncan (FFG-10), having suc- cessfully completed acceptance trials, will be delivered by the

Seattle Division in May. Of the remaining ships, nine have been launched and 11 are on the build- ing ways or in the construction process. Of the total of 25 ships awarded to Todd thus far, 21 are for the U.S. Navy and four are for the Royal Australian Navy.

One of the ships of the current order will be built at the Los

Angeles Division and two at the

Seattle Division.

Mr. Gilbride stated that, based on current administration plan- ning, at least 15 more of these frigates are proposed for con- struction. Todd expects to be awarded a fair portion of these during the next four years.
