Destroyers and unmanned vessel to join exercise


The Navy is taking steps to integrate its Zumwalt-class destroyers and its unmanned surface vessels into operational plans and will likely include both in a major Integrated Battle Problem exercise this (northern) spring, US Naval Institute News reports.

Both sets of ships currently fall under the control of the Surface Development Squadron-1, which is responsible for overseeing USV and Zumwalt fleet introduction efforts. Though USS Zumwalt (DDG-1000) was commissioned in October 2016, it is still working through testing and trials and has not yet started working up for a maiden deployment.
