The ship is being tested, with others, is at Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Carderock Division, Acoustic Research Detachment in Bayview, Idaho. The facility is on Lake Pend Oreille. IDAHO! The test platforms are from Rolls Royce and General Dynamics and the ship is called the Advanced Electric Ship Demonstrator (AESD). If you wish, the net has info about it along with a picture. Look under under its full name.
I bet in the winter months it gets pretty closed in at that facility as the town is only 300 or so people full time. http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/facility/bayview.htm Brrrrr. Idaho.
Gary, Point me in the direction of Nevada for NAVY research/ships. I don't know about that one. Lake Pyramid or Mead?
