Raytheon welcomes GAO decision to uphold selection of Gold Team for DD (X) program

Aug. 19 – Raytheon Company will proceed with the DD (X) program following the announcement by the Government Accounting Office (GAO) that it has upheld the Navy’s contract award for DD (X) to a team led by Northrop Grumman Ship Systems. DD (X) is the U.S. Navy’s next-generation surface combatant ship.

Raytheon is a partner with Northrop Grumman on the industry team that was selected by the Navy on April 29 for the three-year contract to design, develop, build and conduct at-sea tests of Engineering Development Models (EDMs) and then apply the results of the testing to a comprehensive DD (X) ship system design. The contract is expected to total $1.36 billion over the next three years.

As the electronic systems integrator, Raytheon’s Naval & Maritime Integrated Systems (N&MIS) business will be responsible for DD (X) systems engineering, software development, and combat system equipment. As part of this effort, the company will build and test a dual frequency radar suite, an integrated solid-state communications system, a new launcher, an Integrated Undersea Warfare Suite (IUWS), and a multi-mission Total Ship Computing Environment (TSCE). Raytheon work will be performed in Portsmouth, R.I.; Tewksbury, Mass.; Sudbury, Mass.; Marlboro, Mass.; Ft Wayne, Ind.; and Fullerton, California.
