Summary
The Navy's FY2011 budget proposes canceling the CG(X) cruiser program as unaffordable and instead building an improved version of the Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) class Aegis destroyer called the Flight III version. This report provides background information on the CG(X) program as it existed prior to its proposed cancellation. For further discussion of the proposal to build Flight III DDG-51s in lieu of CG(X)s, see CRS Report RL32109, "Navy DDG-51 and DDG-1000 Destroyer Programs: Background and Issues for Congress." The report is divided into the following sections: Background; CG(X) Cruiser Program Prior to Proposed Cancellation, including Announcement of the Program, Replacement for CG-47s, Planned Procurement Schedule, Mission Orientation, Potential Design Features, and Analysis of Alternatives (AOA); and FY2011 Proposal to Cancel the CG(X) Program. Appendixes are as follows: Legislative Activity in 2009, FY2008 Defense Authorization Act Bill and Report Language, CG(X) Analysis of Alternatives (AOA), and Earlier Oversight Issues for the CG(X). The oversight issues included Prospects for Eight-Ship Program with One Ship Every Three Years, Nuclear Power, Technical Risk, Hull Design, Unit Affordability vs. Unit Capability, BMD Impact on CG(X) Numbers and Schedule, Industrial-Base Implications, and Visibility of CG(X) Research and Development Costs
