Summary
The Navy’s FY2013 budget submission calls for procuring nine Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) classdestroyers in FY2013-FY2017, in annual quantities of 2-1-2-2-2. The five DDG-51s scheduledfor procurement in FY2013-FY2015, and one of the two scheduled for procurement in FY2016,are to be of the current Flight IIA design. The Navy wants to begin procuring a new version of theDDG-51 design, called the Flight III design, starting with the second of the two ships scheduledfor procurement in FY2016. The two DDG-51s scheduled for procurement in FY2017 are also to be of the Flight III design. The Flight III design is to feature a new and more capable radar calledthe Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR). The Navy for FY2013 is requesting congressionalapproval to use a multiyear procurement (MYP) arrangement for the nine DDG-51s scheduled for  procurement in FY2013-FY2017.The Navy’s proposed FY2013 budget requests $3,048.6 million to complete the procurementfunding for the two DDG-51s scheduled for procurement in FY2013. The Navy estimates thetotal procurement cost of these ships at $3,149.4 million, and the ships have received $100.7million in prior-year advance procurement (AP) funding. The FY2013 budget also requests$466.3 million in AP funding for DDG-51s to be procured in future fiscal years. The Navy’s proposed FY2013 budget also requests $669.2 million in procurement funding to help complete procurement costs for three Zumwalt (DDG-1000) class destroyers procured in FY2007-FY2009,and $223.6 million in research and development funding for the AMDR.Potential FY2013 issues for Congress concerning destroyer procurement include the following:
 
the potential impact of a year-long continuing resolution (CR) and sequester onthe DDG-51 program in FY2013;
 
whether actions should be taken to mitigate the projected shortfall in cruisers anddestroyers;
 
whether to approve the Navy’s request for a DDG-51 MYP arrangement beginning in FY2013, and if so, whether it should include Flight III DDG-51s;
 
the possibility of adding a 10
th
ship to the proposed DDG-51 MYP arrangement;
 
whether there is an adequate analytical basis for procuring Flight III DDG-51s inlieu of the previously planned CG(X) cruiser;
 
whether the Flight III DDG-51 would have sufficient air and missile capability toadequately perform future air and missile defense missions;
 
cost, schedule, and technical risk in the Flight III DDG-51 program;
 
whether the Flight III DDG-51 design would have sufficient growth margin for a projected 35- or 40-year service life; and
 
schedule risk for recently procured Flight IIA DDG-51s.
