HII scores US Navy’s DDG 1000 modernisation contract

HII’s Ingalls Shipbuilding division has been awarded a $154.8 million contract modification for the modernization of USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000).


USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) arrived in Pascagoula on 19 August after leaving San Diego earlier in the month.

The ship will enter a modernization period and receive technology upgrades including the integration of the Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) weapon system, ensuring USS Zumwalt remains one of the most technologically advanced ships in the U.S. Navy.

In January 2023, Ingalls was awarded a $10.5 million contract for the modernization period planning of Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyers, USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) and USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001).

USS Michael Monsoor will receive the CPS installation at Ingalls during a future modernization period. Additionally, Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG 1002) arrived at Ingalls in January 2022 and is undergoing a combat systems activation.

“It is an honor to serve the sailors of Zumwalt and to welcome them to our community,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding DDG 1000 ship construction manager Bruce Knowles.

“The Ingalls team is ready to support you in completing this important work.”
