The US Navy has successfully tested Raytheon’s next-generation navigation system (NAVDDX) for the DDG 1000 Class destroyer.

NAVDDX is a modern open architecture solution that enables easy distribution of navigation and high-precision time data to ship mission systems.

US Space and Naval Warfare System Command deputy Pete Shaw said NAVDDX was the advanced, mission-critical combat-support positioning, navigation and timing system available to the navy.

The DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class multirole destroyers are designed for surface warfare, anti-aircraft and naval fire support, and are the latest evolution in warfighting technology for surface combatant ships.
