The U.S. Navy has demonstrated Raytheon-built computing applications onboard the lead ship in the branch’s Zumwalt class of destroyers.
Raytheon said Wednesday the DDG 1000‘s total ship computing environment and engineering control systems functioned during a week-long trial at sea.
The TSCE infrastructure comprises a combat management, ship and machinery control, embedded training, damage control and C4I systems.
Raytheon serves as the mission-systems integrator for the Navy’s three-ship Zumwalt destroyer program.
Raytheon said it has completed more than 330 hours of training with sailors on the pre-commissioning DDG 1000 and will support activation of the ship’s combat and mission equipment.
