Raytheon Company deliver more than 6-million lines of software to the U.S. Navy for the DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer program.

Part of the Total Ship Computing Environment (TSCE) -- the integrated mission system for the DDG 1000 class -- the software delivery supports ship activation and combat system testing, set to commence this year.

The magnitude of this software development program is recognized as one of the most complex in the history of the U.S. Navy. TSCE continues to achieve all critical readiness milestones on schedule, currently at Technology Readiness Level 6 after demonstrating the system's ability to perform in relevant end-to-end operational environments. Recently, the Engine Control System and core Integrated Power System capabilities were tested at the Navy's land-based test site, where automated control of the Navy's first all-electric ship was successfully demonstrated.

TSCE is the product of true industry-government collaboration, leveraging the expertise of diverse partners, including Navy laboratories, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and a host of small, innovative companies.

Raytheon's TSCE encompasses all shipboard computing applications, including the combat management system; command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence elements; ship machinery control systems; damage control; embedded training; and support systems. The system leverages a modern, open-architecture approach that provides a scalable platform for cost-efficient delivery of new mission capability.

Raytheon serves as the prime mission systems equipment integrator for all electronic and combat systems for the DDG 1000 program. Working with the Navy and a team of industry partners, Raytheon is leading the effort to transform the Navy's ship requirements to reality.
