Announced on July 19, the new program is called Hyper Velocity Projectile, and the Navy hopes that researchers will find a way to design bullets that will work both with naval artillery guns like the Mark 45 and its rail guns, weapons that will hasten “the end of the dominance of the missile,” Adm.

Don Shipley left the family farm in Pennsylvania and dropped out of school in 1978 to join the Navy at 17 years old.
