On July 1, 1974, Vice Adm. Robert C. Gooding oversaw the merger of Naval Ship Systems Command and the Naval Ordnance Systems Command as it became Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). At the time, there were 587 active ships in the Navy, including 14 aircraft carriers, 119 destroyers and 73 submarines.
The NAVSEA mission dates back to March 1794 when Congress responded to piracy and the disruption of foreign trade in the Mediterranean Sea with force by passing a naval act calling for the construction of six frigates designed by Joshua Humphreys.
