DDG-1000 Program - 2015
By early 2015 the DDG 1000's design was largely mature and the program had made progress in developing its critical technologies and delivering mission system equipment. But the program faced significant risks as ongoing development and shipboard testing of technologies may result in design changes. The delivery of the lead ship's hull, mechanical, and electrical systems was now expected in August 2015, causing a schedule breach to the program's baseline. The Navy faced significant challenges in meeting that date. Shipboard testing of the hull, mechanical, and electrical systems lagged behind schedule, which affected the timing of installation and activation of any remaining mission system equipment, as well as verification that the integrated combat systems, ship systems, and support systems can meet performance requirements.
