WASHINGTON (NNS) -- USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) Planned Incremental Availability (PIA) Team at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS and IMF),
completed an eight month, complex maintenance and modernization period Jan. 15, one day
earlier than originally scheduled.

During the PIA, which covered more than 370,000 man-days, Abraham Lincoln received numerous system upgrades and completed scheduled periodic maintenance on its catapults, auxiliary systems, propulsion plants and combat systems suite. The PIA was led by PSNS and IMF as the Naval Supervising Activity, with strong support from the crew of USS Abraham Lincoln, Todd Pacific Shipyard, Norfolk Naval Shipyard and numerous alteration installation teams. With this group effort, Abraham Lincoln has returned to her homeport in Everett, Wash. where PSNS and IMF will continue to support her in preparation for future deployment.
