Navy Radar Vessel Assists

Foss Maritime, working in conjunction with federal agencies, assisted in the complex escort and docking of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency’s Sea-Based X-Band Radar or SBX-1. Through careful planning, Foss tugs guided the vessel in Hawaii as it moved to open water, then later met the SBX-1 about 50 miles outside the Strait of Juan de Fuca and carefully escorted the valuable vessel to Port Angeles, WA, and through Elliott Bay to Vigor’s Seattle shipyard, where the SBX-1 would undergo maintenance and upgrades.
