This article discusses the U.S. government's efforts to develop an electronic warfare system. The Office of Naval Research, supported by the Naval Research Laboratory as technical agent, is pushing ahead with development, over the next three years, of a multifunction electronic warfare module for fielding on board the Navy's first DD (X) land-attack destroyer. The DD (X) program, managed within the Program Executive Office for Ships, originally planned to adopt an advanced integrated electronic warfare system to be developed by Lockheed Martin Corp. The Navy terminated the system's program in March 2002 because of performance deficiencies, schedule slips, and excessive costs, leaving the DD(X) without an electronic warfare capability.
