(didn't read below the first two sentences, prayed instead)
To my knowledge there is no recognition by the service of the Church of Satan either. However I don’t think is grounds for removal from service. Basically if they get approved oh well. If they don’t well they will make there own decisions.
Amen, the Lord, Our LORD, He is ONE LORD! thou shalt have no other God's before ME! there should be no doubt that we are talking about the God, of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob! no doubt the intent was to remind all Americans that we have a Loving and Faithful GOD...

its really far more simple than folks want to make it.... it really is, ask BD Popeye or Jeff Head....

SEWIP Block 3 on Track to Deliver Critical Electronic Warfare Improvement to the U.S. Navy

As Electronic Warfare (EW) continues to shape the future battlespace, Northrop Grumman is advancing a critical capability for the U.S. Navy. The Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) protects surface ships from anti-ship missiles, providing early detection, signal analysis and threat warning.

Three SEWIP block upgrades have been established and a fourth is planned. SEWIP Block 3, being developed by Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Navy Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS), adds electronic attack to the SLQ-32(V) EW system, and is a cornerstone capability that will meet the urgent operational needs of the Fleet. The timing couldn’t be more important, as the pace and complexity of emerging threats continues to escalate.

Another "idea" that makes sense

U.S. Navy Tested TALONS Elevated Sensor Mast System from a Destroyer during NATO Exercise

The U.S. Navy recently tested the TALONS system from Arleigh Burke-class destroyer USS Porter during Exercise Recognised Environmental Picture by Maritime Unmanned Systems REP (MUS) 2019.

TALONS stands for Towed Airborne Lift of Naval Systems. It is a large, tethered parafoil kite that can carry payloads from a host vessel to 1,000 feet in elevation or more. During REP (MUS), TALONS carried a radar and radio-relay system provided by the United Kingdom in order to extend communication ranges between unmanned vehicles, ships and shore points.

LRASM Gets Funding for B-52 Integration – Could Find its Way to the P-8A Eventually

Lockheed Martin, NAVAIR and the U.S. Air Force will start working on the integration of LRASM on the B-52 following a budget allocation in FY 2019. In addition, fit checks of LRASM aboard the P-8A Poseidon MPA were carried out about a year ago.
...
Contacted by Naval News, Capt. Will Hargreaves, LRASM program director at Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), said “Integration of LRASM on the B-52 will include work by both services [ed. note U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force] in a manner similar to the highly successful B-1 integration program […] This is not a new program. Integration of existing weapons on new aircraft provides flexibility to our warfighter as they continue to pace the threat.”
