ABSTRACT

Navy CG(X) Cruiser Design Options: Background and Oversight Issues For Congress [Updated January 23, 2007]   [open pdf - 71KB]

From the Document: "The Navy would like to use the design of its new DDG-1000 destroyer as the basis for its planned CG(X) cruiser. Basing the CG(X) on a smaller hull would produce a CG(X) design that was individually less capable but more affordable. Nuclear propulsion is another option for the CG(X). [...] The issue for Congress discussed in this report is: What basic design option should be pursued for the Navy's planned CG(X) cruiser? Congress's decisions on this issue could affect the future size and capabilities of the Navy, the affordability of the Navy's shipbuilding program, and the shipbuilding industrial base. This report focuses on the question of basic CG(X) design options."
