TYSONS CORNER, VA March 10, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — ExecutiveBiz reported Friday on Huntington Ingalls Industries receiving $23 million from the U.S. Navy as a follow-on contract to continue building the USS John F. Kennedy (CVN-79) aircraft carrier.

HII CEO Mike Petters expects more contract awards toward further ramping up production, a project the Daily Press said last week incorporates much of the cost and efficiency lessons HII’s Newport News Shipbuilding division has learned from the making of the USS Gerald R. Ford.

“We’re right on the front edge of getting to a contract on the construction of the follow-on carrier CVN-79, ” Petters said in a Mar. 3 presentation at transportation conference in New York.
