The article focuses on the development of the Total Ship Computing Environment (TSCE) for the Zumwalt-class (DDG-1000) destroyer, by a U.S. Navy-industry team of more than 1,200 software developers led by Raytheon Co. The new software, called Release 5, will add some five million lines of new code for surface warfare and undersea warfare. A critical design review scheduled for June 2008 is expected to certify the design as mature enough for the start of code development and testing.
