DDG-1000 (formerly DD(X)) Next-generation U.S. Navy war ship

The DDG-1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer (formerly DD(X)) is a new U.S. Navy war ship destined to provide the foundation for all Navy surface combatant ships to be built in the 21st century. The DDG-1000 is a multi-mission destroyer and the centerpiece of a family of ships (including destroyers, cruisers and littoral combat ships) that will operate within the construct of the Surface Combatant Navy. The DDG-1000 is unique in providing an integrated warfare system—in essence, a single integrated command center that affords it the ability to operate in a multi-domain perspective including land attack, undersea warfare, and anti-air warfare.

The LynxOS RTOS is used extensively by the DDG-1000 program in multiple areas such as in ships' embedded distribution application processors (DAPs). The DAPs control key interfaces of the ship, including the missile launching equipment, the ship's propulsion equipment, and external communications equipment.

LynxOS incorporates Navy Open Architecture (OA) precepts to create a powerful system and software architecture that is easily accessible to team members and customers throughout the DDG-1000 distributed network.

LynxOS also runs in the MK 57 Vertical Launching System (VLS) that is aboard DDG-1000's. The MK 57 launcher was recognized by the Department of Defense and the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) as a 2006 top-five DoD program award winner for excellence in systems engineering.
