FRAM
Fleet Rehabilitation And Modernization


By the late 1950's the Destroyer Force had become outdated in it's ability to defend against both aircraft and submarines. Following studies of the problem, it was recommended to upgrade the current force through a series of upgrades and rebuilds to the existing ships. The FRAM program was divided initially into 3 groups referred to as Mark I, Mark II and Mark III (the Mark III program was never brought to fruition).
Mark I, usually referred to as FRAM I, was intended to extend the useful life of the ships by 8 years with a complete rehabilitation of all shipboard components in hull, machinery, ASW sensors and weapons systems. This group was restricted to Gearing Class units and included the addition of such systems as DASH, ASROC, SQS-23 SONAR, VDS and Mark 32 torpedo tubes. The 5"/38 Mount 52 was removed during the rebuild.
Mark II, usually referred to as FRAM II, was planned to extend each ship's life by 5 years. It was a less aggressive upgrade and was used on the Sumner Class, DDR's and DDE's (3 of which were Fletcher Class). The overhaul included the addition of the DASH system but retained all three 5"/38 mounts and the addition of the Mark 32 torpedo tubes and VDS.
As is the case in most projects of this scale there is no hard and fast rule of exactly what each ship received during the overhaul as changes were made throughtout the years that it was carried out. As can be seen from any listing of the years these ships were actively employed following FRAM, it was an excellent investment and did much to keep the Destroyer Force at sea and ready for any contingency.
What follows is a photographic history of the upgrades as they were being accomplished. It was the idea of Ed Zajkowski and includes many images from his private collection. If you can add to this story please don't hesitate to send in your photos.
