    Incredible. Thanks for the explanation. I was wondering myself.

    Pretty impressive stuff. Not sure about value for money but then the F117 had a strange life, but the technology was shown to be both effective (stealth) and ineffective (F for fighter) and lessons learnt and cost largely thereof fallen.

    The F117 was never designed as a fighter. It had no radar.

    Raytheon continues successful performance on DDG 1000 Zumwalt class Destroyers
    Raytheon Company has delivered more than six million lines of software to the U.S. Navy for the DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer program. Part of the Total Ship Computing Environment (TSCE) -- the integrated mission system for the DDG 1000 class -- the software delivery supports ship activation and combat system testing, set to commence this year.

    The magnitude of this software development program is recognized as one of the most complex in the history of the U.S. Navy. TSCE continues to achieve all critical readiness milestones on schedule, currently at Technology Readiness Level 6 after demonstrating the system's ability to perform in relevant end-to-end operational environments. Recently, the Engine Control System and core Integrated Power System capabilities were tested at the Navy's land-based test site, where automated control of the Navy's first all-electric ship was successfully demonstrated.

    A recently taken Bird's eye view of the future Zumwalt, showing off her newly-installed deckhouse:


    Interestingly enough, the Navy is suddenly looking to compete the bid for DDG-1002's composite deckhouse against a steel deckhouse built by Bath or HII. It mostly appears to be a move to drive down the composite deckhouse price, but were it to occur such a change would require massive changes to the ship's configuration since you could not simply built the same house in steel without completely destabilizing the ship.
