ManTech Achievement Award

ManTech Achievement Award

Northrop Grumman has been awarded the 2005 Defense Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Achievement Award by the U.S. Office of Naval Research for extraordinary accomplishments on the U.S. Navy's next-generation DD(X) destroyer program. The DD(X) program has revolutionized shipbuilding by perfecting composite-to-steel integration for future surface-ship platforms," said Paul Robinson, vice president and general manager of surface combatants for Northrop Grumman Ship Systems.

The ManTech Achievement Award specifically recognizes the composite-to-steel joint development for DD(X). This exceptional ship features an all-composite deckhouse joined to a steel hull. The revolutionary adhesive technology designed for the DD(X) significantly improves performance and increases survivability while reducing in-service maintenance expense. The joint is 40 percent lighter in weight and 50 percent less expensive to produce than existing configurations. "Not only has this DD(X) team employed the most cost-effective manufacturing techniques," says Brian Cuccias, vice president and DD(X) program manager for Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, "they have laid the foundation for the future of composite ship design."
