Marotta Scientific Controls Wins Aegis Shipbuilding Excellence Award

The U.S. Navy and Ingalls Shipbuilding Division of Litton, Pascagoula, Miss., jointly recognized Marotta Scientific Controls, Inc., Montville, N.J., for excellence in their production of superior quality, high-performance air/gas-reducing valve manifolds for use on board the Ticonderoga (CG47) Class Aegis guided missile cruisers.

The recently commissioned USS Princeton (CG59) is the newest Aegis cruiser that went to sea carrying Marotta valve manifolds. Ranging from such uses as sonar dome pressurization, main gas turbine engine start, torpedo tube firing, and 15 other applications presently aboard Aegis ships at sea, Marotta products have consistently operated with extreme dependability and reliability.

During a formal ceremony, Rear Adm. James B. Greene Jr., presented Thomas S. Marotta, Marotta's president, with the Aegis Shipbuilding Excellence Award. At that time, Adm. Greene stated, "Such performance and achieve- ment reflect with pride the dedication of the management and employees of Marotta in helping the Navy get Aegis to sea onboard the 13 cruisers presently in service with the fleet."
