Testing of Deckhouse Radar Cross-Section


Testing of Deckhouse Radar Cross-Section

The development of DD(X), a revolutionary multi-mission destroyer, has reached another significant milestone by completing fabrication and radar cross-section testing of the integrated deckhouse model. Built out of carbon fiber, the integrated deckhouse model is a one-of-a-kind technology demonstrator consisting of the forward and aft sections of the deckhouse, including an aft face that is fully populated with antennas that were supplied by potential subcontractors.

"The radar cross section is a critical element in the stealth attributes of DD(X) and the excellent test results from this engineering development model confirm we continue to meet and exceed the planned targets and objectives," said Brian Cuccias, Northrop Grumman vice president and DD(X) program manager. "The radar cross-section tests verify the Flight 1 deckhouse will meet its portion of the overall radar cross-section budget."

In partnership with the U.S. Navy, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon Company, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems are leading a team to design DD(X). Various technologies are currently in an advanced state of development and are destined to influence ship-design efforts around the world for the remainder of this century.
