State Pledges NOTU Support

Florida Lieutenant Gov. Jennifer Carroll, introduces Florida Gov. Rick Scott at the Tides Club last week. Gov. Scott announced the State’s $5 million contribution for the U.S. Navy upgrades and refurbishing to its missile testing facility at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The Navy’s new operation, called Strategic Weapons System Ashore, will convert two of the station’s 1950s-era launch complexes, No’s. 25
and 29, into modern test stands and provide the Navy with a single, landbased
facility for creating submarine missile systems. Also pictured are Brig. Gen. Anthony Cotton, second from left, commander, 45th Space Wing, and Capt. J.P. Heatherington, commander, Naval Ordnance Test Unit. (Photo by Capt. Matthew Matt Sanchez)
