Orchestrated by CSG 4 staff, COMPTUEX is designed to test and push the limits of the first-in-class aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) through a thorough, multi-week scenario that will prepare the crew for high-end warfighting.

Focused on a range of simulated combat situations, including aircraft, submarine, and missile attacks, ship casualties, and engineering and communication drills, COMPTUEX’s scenario will evolve and mirror the real-world geopolitical environment to prepare the GRFCSG for its upcoming deployment.

This will be Ford’s first COMPTUEX. This training will allow the carrier strike group to increase staff proficiency across various warfighting functions and provided a unique experience to exercise naval interoperability.


COMPTUEX, or Composite Training Unit Exercise, is a training exercise performed by each US Navy Carrier Strike Group before departing for deployment.

The exercise is designed to bring together all the ships and aircraft in the battle group to train in their respective specialties and project force as a cohesive battle group.
