ARLEIGH BURKE is the lead ship of the ARLEIGH BURKE class of guided
missile destroyers. The composition of the fleet is changing rapidly as
modern ARLEIGH BURKE guided missile AEGIS destroyers enter active
commissioned service. The Navy considers the newest Arleigh Burke-class
destroyer to be its most capable and survivable surface combatant.
These ships are the first destroyers in the world equipped with the AEGIS Weapons Systems.
51s were constructed in flights, allowing technological advances during
construction. Flight II, introduced in FY 1992, incorporates
improvements to the SPY radar and the Standard missile, active
electronic countermeasures and communications. Flight IIA, introduced in
fiscal year 1994, added a helicopter hangar with one anti-submarine
helicopter and one armed attack helicopter.
initial ARLEIGH BURKE-class guided missile destroyers have a full load
displacement of 8,300 tons, are 506 feet in overall length and have a 62
foot beam. They are driven by two shafts powered by four LM2500
engines. Their maximum speed is in excess of 30 knots and they have a
cruising range of 4,400 n. miles at 20 knots. The ships complement is
about 30 officers and 302 enlisted personnel.
ARLEIGH BURKE was the first U.S. Navy ship designed to incorporate
shaping techniques to reduce radar cross-section to reduce their
detectability and likelihood of being targeted by enemy weapons and
sensors. Originally designed to defend against Soviet aircraft, cruise
missiles, and nuclear attack submarines, this higher capability ship is
to be used in high-threat areas to conduct antiair, antisubmarine,
antisurface, and strike operations.
new, large, waterplane area hull form significantly improves seakeeping
ability. The hull form is designed to permit high speed in high sea
states. The seakeeping hull form is characterized by considerable flair
and a "V" shape appearance at the waterline.
DDG-51 Class engineering plant represents an improvement in US Naval
gas turbine power plant control systems. Aircraft derivative gas
turbines are used for both propulsion and ship service electrical power
generation. A high degree of plant automation is achieved by an
interconnected system of control consoles. Four of these control
consoles are located in the Central Control Station (CCS) which is the
nerve center of the DDG-51 Class engineering plant.
DDG-51 Class ships are specifically constructed from a
survivability-enhanced design that affords passive protection to
personnel and vital systems. This design provides protection against
underwater shock, nuclear air blasts, fragment incursions into vital
spaces, radar detection, electronic countermeasures, gun and missile
attacks and a Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) attack. A
comprehensive Collective Protection System guards against nuclear,
chemical, or biological agents. The ship's damage control features and
constructional design make the DDG-51 Class Destroyer the most
"survivable" surface ship in the world.
the ARLEIGH BURKE Class, all-steel construction is used. Extensive
top-side armor is placed around vital combat systems and machinery
spaces. The bulkheads are constructed of steel from the waterline to the
pilot house. The bulkheads are designed with double-spaced plate
construction for fragment protection. The frontal plate causes fragments
to break up and the backup plate stops the fragments from causing
further damage to the interior of the ship. Othe Aegis combat system
equipment rooms are protected by Kevlar shielding. And, topside weight
is reduced by incorporating an aluminum mast.
