DD 21 Alliance Taps Dassault Systems

Tuesday, January 30, 2001
The DD 21 Alliance has announced a development acceleration agreement with Dassault Systemes CATIA Version 5 and ENOVIA to support the complete Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) of the U.S. Navy's Zumwalt-class Land Attack Destroyer (DD 21). Under the agreement, Dassault Systemes will develop dedicated shipbuilding software solutions as requested by the Alliance. The DD 21 Alliance, Bath Iron Works and Litton's Ingalls Shipbuilding, was formed to accomplish the DD 21 five-phase program for radical breakthrough capabilities. By aggressively applying advanced technologies, DD 21 exemplifies the transformation of the military industrial complex as the first class of the U.S. Navy's Surface Combatants for the 21st Century. DD 21 must incorporate revolutionary ship survivability/signature levels, modern combat capabilities and automated systems to increase effectiveness while reducing crew size and lowering overall ship life-cycle cost.
