The FY2010 budget that the Navy submitted to Congress last year proposed ending procurement of Zumwalt DDG-1000 class destroyers at three ships and resuming procurement of Arleigh Burke DDG-51 class Aegis destroyers. Congress, as part of its action on the FY2010 defense budget, supported this proposal the FY2010 budget funded the procurement of one DDG-51 the first to be procured since FY2005, provided advance procurement funding for two DDG-51s the Navy wants to procure in FY2011, completed the procurement funding for the third DDG-1000 which was authorized but only partially funded in FY2009, and provided no funding for procuring additional DDG-1000s. The Navys FY2011 budget submission calls for procuring two DDG-51s in FY2011 and six more in FY2012-FY2015. The two DDG-51s that the Navy wants to procure in FY2011 received 577.2 million in FY2010 advance procurement funding. The Navys proposed FY2011 budget requests another 2,922.2 million in procurement funding for the two ships, so as to complete their estimated combined procurement cost of 3,499.2 million. The Navys proposed FY2011 budget also requests 48.0 million in advance procurement funding for the one DDG-51 that the Navy wants to procure in FY2012, and 186.3 million in procurement funding for DDG-1000 program-completion costs.
