Navy Tests New Stealth Destroyer

Monday, May 15, 2006
Bayview at Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho is the site of the Navy's Acoustic Research Detachment. It is also the new home of the Sea Jet, a $16m, 130 foot-long scale model of the Navy's next-generation DDX destroyer. The Sea Jet has a new hull design and stealthy deck house. It is testing a new water jet propulsion system. The ship's jet-ski-like system is powered by an electric drive connected to batteries. It can power radar, sonar and other equipment on board. So far, the boat has sailed 16 straight days. Henry Netzer, director of the Navy's Acoustic Research Detachment in Bayview, says most of the testing is done late at night. The Navy is hoping to begin building all electric ships within the next decade. (Source: KLXY)
