This paper addresses the justification, design philosohpy, system description, and technical evaluation of the FFG 7 fin stabilization system--the "Fins of the Future." These fins are to be installed in the FFG 7 Class ships to provide increased mission effectiveness. Details of "lessons learned" are addressed and these are shown to be incorporated into this new fin system design. Reliability and Maintainability of the total system is stressed.
