Abstract : DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyer (DDG 1000) will be an optimally-crewed, multi-mission surface combatant designed to fulfill volume firepower and precision strike requirements. This advanced warship will provide credible forward naval presence while operating independently or as an integral part of Naval, Joint, or Combined Expeditionary Strike Forces. Armed with an array of weapons, DDG 1000 will provide offensive, distributed, and precision firepower at long ranges in support of forces ashore. To ensure effective operations in the littoral, DDG 1000 will incorporate signature reduction, active and passive self-defense systems, and enhanced survivability features.
