Next-Generation Surface Combatants

The U.S. Navy has selected a team led by the Northrop Grumman's Ship Systems to complete the system design for the Navy's advanced, 21st century surface combatant DD(X). The team includes Raytheon Company as mission systems integrator and more than 30 of the nation's top engineering and maritime industrial companies, which will perform engineering prototype development and testing. The initial design contract has a total value of approximately $2.9 billion over four years.

"The DD(X) is the centerpiece of the Navy's 21st century transformation and is the cornerstone program for a family of surface combatants to be designed and built over the next 25 years. I am extremely proud of our employees at Northrop Grumman Ship Systems for leading this effort as well as our other operating sectors and outstanding teammates who contributed to the success of the Gold Team's proposal." said Kent Kresa, Northrop Grumman chairman and CEO. This family of ships includes destroyers, cruisers and littoral combat ships, as well as technology to be backfitted into today's existing fleet of Aegis-equipped cruisers and destroyers. This phase of the program will initially employ more than 350 Northrop Grumman Ship Systems management, engineering, operations and logistical support personnel over the next four years.
