 Encyclopedia: Lead ship   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Large ships are complicated internally, and may take a long time to construct, as much as five to 10 years, so it is rare to have two of them that are completely identical.
The name of the lead ship is often used to name the whole ship class.
In the United States Navy, since the 20th century to the present, the lead ship usually lends its name to the ship class, as in Pennsylvania class battleship, whose lead ship was the USS Pennsylvania (BB-38), or more recently Los Angeles class submarine named after the USS Los Angeles (SSN 688).

Lead parts or solder might be found in models made at any time.
The anchors, the only lead fittings on this model, have been a recurring source of corrosion problems since 1963 when the model was mounted in a glass display case with a mahogany base finished with Fabulon clear coat.

 Lead ship   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The lead ship is the first of a series class of ships all constructed according to the same design.
From the 20th century to the present the lead ship lends its name to the class as Pennsylvania class battleship whose lead ship was the USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) or more recently Los Angeles class submarine named after the USS Los Angeles (SSN 688).
The Royal Navy occasionally gives all ships of a names that have something in common -- simply all beginning with the same letter so that class is known not only the name of its lead ship but by whatever their names have in common.

Acetic acid acts upon lead and transforms it into lead carbonate which is the white, granular, powder we frequently see on lead ship model fittings.
The lead carbonate releases acetic acid which can continue the process until the lead part is progressively consumed from the outside, inward.
In order to manufacture lead carbonate (white lead), a valuable pigment used in high-quality opaque paint, earthen pots were filled with vinegar and covered with sheet lead or with cast lead waffles.

 GAO-04-973, Defense Acquisitions: Challenges Facing the DD(X) Destroyer Program
Lead ship authorization occurs after critical design review so that the maturity of the design can be demonstrated before a decision is made.
However, the short amount of time between lead ship authorization and ship launch (5 years and 3 months), together with the fact that virtually every major subsystem on the ship depends on a new technology or novel use of existing technologies, frame a challenge that involves significant risk.
Following Milestone B and lead ship contract award, the Navy will complete additional testing to provide data necessary to feed into the CDR, which will be a series of events stretching across the summer of 2005.

Intel is working with the industry to find a reliable solution for the tiny amount of lead still needed inside the processor packaging to connect the actual silicon "core" to the package.
Lead has been used in electronics for more than one hundred years because of its electrical and mechanical properties.
Intel will continue to ship processors with the current packaging during the transition period to aid system manufacturers who need time to develop and qualify their lead-free processes and products.

The ship is mainly a rearrangement of Excelsior-class components and was possibly introduced in the early 24th century.
The ships may have been decommissioned at the end of the 23rd century, one of them is displayed in the Starfleet museum.
While further ships of this class have been built in the meantime, the USS Defiant probably remained the only one with a Romulan cloaking device and was still in experimental status at the time of its destruction.

 USS Ticonderoga (CG 47)
USS TICONDEROGA was the lead ship of the TICONDEROGA class and fifth ship in the Navy to bear the name.

For launching, the ship was moved several hundred yards across land to the floating dry dock, which was used to actually launch the ship.

The lead ship of the DD(X) class, to be built under contract in FY 2005, will be an active member of the fleet once it completes its shakedown trials and follow-on testing.
With the case of LCS, that ship will be a focused-mission ship, not a multi-mission ship, that is designed to work in a netted force of combatants and to complement and leverage the multi-mission ships in that family.
We see it being a ship that would be very different in that sense, yet a very important part of the operational family and a ship that could share some of the technologies that's occurring in the DD(X) line at the same time.

 Ship Modeling Forum - Articles/Shop Notes - Lead Corrosion in Exhibition Ship Models
We surmised that lead corrosion was triggered by "impurities" such as antimony or tin in the lead used in the castings.
The fact that lead carbonate combines with carbon dioxide to form acetic acid demands that lead carbonate powder frequently be removed from the surfaces of affected castings and from inside the exhibit case or storage crate environment.
Lead is a toxic substance which may enter the body by breathing or swallowing lead dusts, fumes, or mists.

 Navy Ships: Lessons of Prior Programs May Reduce New Attack Submarine Cost
The Board also directed the Navy to initiate (1) advanced procurement of the lead ship's nuclear reactor in fiscal year 1996 and (2) lead ship construction in fiscal year 1998.
However, lead ship construction will still begin in fiscal year 1998, despite the 1-year slip of milestone I. Under the current NSSN schedule, detail design is scheduled to begin in July 1995, with lead ship construction beginning about 27 months later in October 1997.
Examples of approved lessons are (1) centralizing the ship's service hydraulic power plant, (2) simplifying the ship's deck design, and (3) simplifying the ship's pipe hangers.
