Raytheon continues successful performance on DDG 1000
by Staff Writers
Tewksbury MA (SPX) Jan 17, 2013


Work on the DDG 1000 program is performed by more than 800 Raytheon employees, as well as by approximately 1,800 subcontractors and supplier partners in 43 states across the country.

Raytheon has delivered more than six million lines of software to the U.S. Navy for the DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer program. Part of the Total Ship Computing Environment (TSCE) -- the integrated mission system for the DDG 1000 class -- the software delivery supports ship activation and combat system testing, set to commence this year.

The magnitude of this software development program is recognized as one of the most complex in the history of the U.S. Navy. TSCE continues to achieve all critical readiness milestones on schedule, currently at Technology Readiness Level 6 after demonstrating the system's ability to perform in relevant end-to-end operational environments.

Recently, the Engine Control System and core Integrated Power System capabilities were tested at the Navy's land-based test site, where automated control of the Navy's first all-electric ship was successfully demonstrated.

"We attribute TSCE success to the rigorous process employed by the incredibly talented industry team, building in incremental testing throughout development to verify quality, mitigate risk and detect any defects early enough to avoid any impact to the Navy's schedule or cost," said Kevin Peppe, vice president of Seapower Capability Systems for Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business.

"The upcoming tests and ship activation will demonstrate the robust capability and functionality of TSCE, the integrating element delivering mission wholeness for this revolutionary new warship."

TSCE is the product of true industry-government collaboration, leveraging the expertise of diverse partners, including Navy laboratories, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and a host of small, innovative companies.

Highly Scalable, Automated and Open
Raytheon's TSCE encompasses all shipboard computing applications, including the combat management system; command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence elements; ship machinery control systems; damage control; embedded training; and support systems. The system leverages a modern, open-architecture approach that provides a scalable platform for cost-efficient delivery of new mission capability.

TSCE delivers a high degree of modularity and automation, helping to advance the Navy's open architecture goals, and is a key source of reuse for other platforms.

The sailor-centric human-computer interface, combined with the high level of automation achieved with TSCE, is a primary driver for the significant reduction in manning for Zumwalt-class destroyers when compared with today's Arleigh Burke-class destroyers.

Raytheon serves as the prime mission systems equipment integrator for all electronic and combat systems for the DDG 1000 program.

Working with the Navy and a team of industry partners, Raytheon is leading the effort to transform the Navy's ship requirements to reality.

Work on the DDG 1000 program is performed by more than 800 Raytheon employees, as well as by approximately 1,800 subcontractors and supplier partners in 43 states across the country.

Pride of Argentine navy back home after debt tussle
Mar Del Plata, Argentina (AFP) Jan 10, 2013
Argentina greeted with pomp and politicking Wednesday a navy frigate released after being swept up in a debt tussle stemming from the country's economic collapse a decade ago. Captain Pablo Salonio said his crew had "fulfilled our obligation" by helping ensure the three-masted vessel's safe return home after being impounded for more than two months in Ghana. "Argentina once again has bee ... read more
