Raytheon Completes DDG 1000 Deckhouse Integration Design

Tuesday, December 12, 2006
Raytheon Company completed the Delta Interim Detailed Design Review for the DDG 1000 Integrated Deckhouse and Apertures (IDHA) Element. The DDG 1000 is the Navy's next generation multi-mission destroyer. The IDHA Element is responsible for the integration design of apertures into the DDG 1000 composite deckhouse. The apertures comprise a system of antenna arrays for functions such as radars and communications that are to be mounted flush on the deckhouse. Flush mounting of these advanced arrays allows the ship to meet the stringent stealth requirements that make it such an effective multi-mission vessel.

The review, which took place at the Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) Sensors and Surveillance Center in Sudbury, Mass., confirmed that all design and performance requirements were clearly defined and that the design is sufficient to meet those requirements. The completion of this milestone allows the IDHA Element to begin the detailed design phase, moving the program closer to production. Fabrication - and ultimately installation of the apertures - is set to begin in mid-2008, after the production readiness review in late-2007.
