The USS Zumwalt’s key functions and Raytheon-made systems underwent performance tests as the ship sailed through acceptance and builder’s trials.
The company’s Total Ship Computing Environment integrated mission system and all other systems, including DDG 1000’s engineering control systems, integrated bridge, navigation and electro-optic surveillance systems, passed the performance test during the trials trials, Raytheon said Friday.
Pat O’Kane, Raytheon ship integration and test director for the DDG 1000 program, said that its system experts worked with the crew to help enhance their skills.
Zumwalt’s on-board Raytheon team underwent 20 hours of hands-on training along with other members of the pre-commissioning crew during the builder’s trials, added Raytheon.
Raytheon is the U.S. Navy‘s DDG 1000-class destroyer program prime mission-systems equipment integrator.
