Raytheon is providing the U.S. Navy software for the mission system onboard the branch’s Zumwalt class of destroyers.
The company said it has delivered more than six million lines of software to the Navy for ship activation and combat system testing.
The Total Ship Computing Environment, the Zumwalt class’ mission system, contains shipboard applications for ship machinery control systems, damage control embedded training and C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).
Navy laboratories, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and several smaller companies helped develop the environment.
Kevin Peppe, vice president of seapower capability systems for Raytheon’s integrated defense systems business, said future tests and activations will evaluate the TSCE’s capability and functionality.
Raytheon said the ships’ engine control system and power systems were tested at a Navy land-based test site to evaluate automated control of an all-electric ship.
The company said more than 800 employees, 1,800 subcontractors and supplier partners in 43 states nationwide are working on the Zumwalt program.
