McMullen official who did nor want to be quoted by name said that any technology transfer from DDX will focus on manning, survivability, weapons and electronics.
The 32-year-old USS Radford last month left active service and became a technology test platform for the Navy's next-generation surface combatant, the DDX.
As other DD 963-class ships are decommissioned prior to towing Radford to Northrop Grumman Ship System Ingalls, the Navy may elect to designate a different ship as the DDX test ship, depending on the ship's material conditions or other cost factors," said the spokesman.
Ulrich noted that the DDX was "designed with fire support foremost in mind.
The electric propulsion planned for DDX "sets the foundation for electromagnetic rail guns and hypersonic projectiles," Ulrich said.
In addition to the ERGM, the Tactical Tomahawk and the DDX advanced gun programs, the Navy is funding the development of an electromagnetic rail gun.
Technically, the DDX has moved higher from the key 66 level, an area of former support and resistance.
