Summary
Consistent with a proposal announced by the Navy in July 2008, the Administration's FY2010 defense budget proposed ending procurement of DDG-1000 (Zumwalt) class destroyers with the third ship, which was authorized and partially funded in FY2009, and restarting procurement DDG-51 (Arleigh Burke) class Aegis destroyers, which were last procured in FY2005. The proposed FY2010 defense budget requested procurement funding to complete the cost of the third DDG-1000 and to procure one DDG-51, and advance procurement funding for two more DDG- 51s that the Navy wants to procure in FY2011. The Navy's plans for destroyer procurement in FY2012 and beyond are unclear. The Navy since July 2008 has spoken on several occasions about a desire to build a total of 11 or 12 DDG-51s between FY2010 and FY2015, but the Navy also testified to the Seapower subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee on June 16, 2009, that it is conducting a study on destroyer procurement options for FY2012 and beyond that is examining design options based on either the DDG-51 or DDG-1000 hull form. A January 2009 memorandum from the Department of Defense acquisition executive called for such a study. A November 2009 press report stated that the study was begun in late Spring 2009, that it was nearing completion, that it examined options for equipping the DDG-51 and DDG-1000 designs with an improved radar, and that preliminary findings from the study began to be briefed to "key parties on Capitol Hill and in industry" in October 2009. Given constraints on future Navy budgets, it might be difficult for the Navy to finance, more or less simultaneously, the development and procurement of both a destroyer with an improved radar and the Navy's planned CG(X) cruiser (the first ship of which is to be procured around FY2017). This raises a question as to whether the Navy now wants to terminate the CG(X) program and procure a destroyer with an improved radar in lieu of the CG(X)
