Hensoldt unveils new AESA naval surveillance radar at DSEI
Construction begins on DDG 120
General Dynamics has begun construction of the US Navy’s future Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, USS Carl M Levin (DDG 120), at its Bath Iron Works shipyard, the navy announced on 2 February.
DDG 120 will be configured as a Flight IIA destroyer and equipped with the US Navy’s Aegis Baseline 9 combat system which includes integrated air and missile defence capability. This system will deliver high firepower and increased electronic countermeasures capability for anti-air warfare.
The multi-mission Arleigh Burke-class destroyers provide the navy with undersea, surface, strike and ballistic missile defence along with providing increased capabilities in anti-submarine warfare, C2 and anti-surface warfare.
Delivery to the fleet is scheduled for 2021.
