The Grumman F-14 Tomcat, developed for the U.S. Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program, is a supersonic, twin-engine, variable sweep-wing, two-place strike fighter. The multiple tasks of navigation, target acquisition, electronic counter measures (ECM), and weapons employment are divided between the pilot and the radar intercept officer (RIO). Primary missions include precision strike against ground targets, air superiority, and fleet air defense. The F-14 first flew in December 1970 and was first deployed with the U.S. Navy in 1974. The F-14 was retired from the U.S. Navy's active fleet in 2006. Frederick Nassauer, Sr. was a longtime Grumman employee working at the Grumman Aerospace Flight Test Facility (Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant) in Calverton, Long Island, New York.
