The General Dynamics-built USS Rafael Peralta guided missile destroyer has completed its two-day acceptance trials that sought to review the ship’s construction process and crew.
The U.S. Navy said Wednesday its Board of Inspection and Survey led the evaluation during a series of pier-side and underway demonstrations off the coast of Maine.
INSURV validated the compliance of the ship’s systems that include navigation, propulsion, electric and mechanical, damage control, combat and communications applications to Navy standards.
“DDG 115 performed exceedingly well during acceptance trials and throughout the test and trials period,” said Capt. Casey Moton, DDG 51 class program manager at the Program Executive Office Ships.
General Dynamics christened the ship in November.
DDG 51 is equipped with the Aegis Baseline 9 Combat System designed to deliver Integrated Air and Missile Defense, Ballistic Missile Defense 5.0 and Naval Integrated fire Control-Counter Air functions.
