USS Dwight D. Eisenhower back at sea after overhaul | Naval Today - March 29, 2019
Quote
During the overhaul, the carrier received innovative upgrades, including a carrier-based Unmanned Aviation Warfare Center (UAWC).

Ike is the first carrier to be outfitted with the foundational, physical UAWC space which will allow it to operate the MQ-25 Stingray – the first operational, carrier-based unmanned refueling aircraft.

Once the ship returns from sea trials, it will signal Ike’s transition to the basic phase of OFRP. Under the basic phase, sailors start to work together as a team at sea. Ultimately, Ike will continue preparations with an eye toward its upcoming deployment as part of Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 10.
