Ship Self-Defense Contract for Raytheon

Press Release
Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Raytheon awarded US Navy contract to extend open architecture combat system deployment and fleet support.

Raytheon Company has been awarded a $22.5 million U.S. Navy contract for the Ship Self-Defense System. With this award, Raytheon will continue system development, test and integration, as well as Platform Systems Engineering Agent (PSEA) services and support for fleet-deployed systems.

SSDS is an open, distributed combat management system in service on carriers and amphibious ships, including CVN, LSD dock landing ship, LPD, LHA and LHD classes. The LHA variant is nearing initial deployment, a technical refresh of the LSD-class is almost complete, and system development is underway for the new CVN 78-class of aircraft carriers. SSDS is designed to expedite the detect-to-engage sequence to defend against anti-ship cruise missiles. The system integrates and automates standalone sensors and weapon systems to provide the required, quick response and multi-target engagement capability.

Raytheon's SSDS MK 2 is the first fleet use of open architecture computing environment hardware and software that includes selected software components from the Total Ship Computing Environment Infrastructure developed for the DDG 1000-class destroyer. The open architecture design adds a new level of flexibility and commercial standards to support the Navy's goal of open, modular and interoperable combat management systems for the fleet. With its open and modular design, SSDS can also support additional domestic and international combatants.
