In addition, IDT's patented DDX
class-D technology offers higher efficiency, consuming less power than traditional binary class-D solutions.
The shooters were the Australian ship, DDX
and the Hawkeye, which had simulated fighter jets flying under its control.
NSW is also working with the surface Navy on futuristic programs, such as the Littoral Combat Ship and the DDX
Launched on TRUcore, Trubiquity's new software-as-a-service based systems architecture, TRUfusion will replace the company's former data exchange automation software products, Fusion-DX and DDX
land-attack destroyer, to be deployed by 2012, is expected to be the Navy's first truly "open-systems" ship.
Navy officials have described the LCS as a member of a futuristic family of ships that includes the DDX land-attack destroyer and the CGX next-generation guided-missile cruiser.
The LCS contractor teams include some of the same firms currently participating in the DDX program.
The Marines' best hope for big guns may be the DDX next-generation destroyer, scheduled to begin construction in 2005 and be deployed by 2011.
DDX will have a 155 mm gun, designed to fire guided projectiles--at a rate of 12 rounds per minute--from 100 miles away.
Some Navy officials seem eager to get DDX
in the fleet as soon as possible.
We established ourselves as a technology innovator by designing, developing and marketing our proprietary DDX
Navy and Coast Guard and we look forward to follow-up contracts in support of these on-going programs and new ship construction programs, such as DDX
, CVN21, JHSV, Seabasing and others," said Don Roussinos, president of L-3 Henschel.
