Raytheon's SSDS program has a long and outstanding history of performance, reinforced most recently with the early delivery of the first SSDS hardware ship set of the Fiscal Year 2011 production contract. All ship sets are designated for installation on new ships as well as for upgrades to legacy combat management systems on in-service ships. The recent delivery brought the total number of systems to 31, all of which were delivered early or on time to the Navy. The SSDS hardware upgrades are aligned with the Navy's scheduled maintenance and refresh cycles, ensuring optimum ship system capabilities and performance. SSDS' open design easily supports upgrades throughout the full lifecycle of the fleet.
Work on SSDS is performed at Raytheon Integrated Defense System's Expeditionary Warfare Center, San Diego, Calif.; and Seapower Capability Center, Portsmouth, R.I.
