Kiwanis Club Learns About Navy Technologies

Posted: Updated:

It's going to be one of the most advanced submarines in the United States Navy.
And today, some Bismarck residents learned more about the USS North Dakota's role in the Navy's submarine fleet.

Rear Admiral Richard Breckenridge spoke to the Bismarck Kiwanis Club about the warship's technologies.

The USS North Dakota has new radar capabilities and space for small Special Forces groups. It's the newest member of the Virginia class of submarines.

"Sort of like Apple with iPads, we never rest on our laurels. We're always reaching and trying to maintain this advantage that we have in the undersea domain and North Dakota is the next big step in technological advancement," says Director of Warfare Integration Richard Breckenridge.

The USS North Dakota will be commissioned on May 31.
