GULFPORT, Miss. — Ingalls Shipbuilding division has delivered the composite deckhouse for a Zumwalt-class destroyer to the U.S. Navy.

Ingalls is building the composite deckhouse and hangar for the DDG-1000 class at the company’s Composite Center of Excellence in Gulfport.

The 900-ton deckhouse provides a structure to house the ship’s bridge, radars, antennas and intake/exhaust systems.

Bath Iron Works ultimately assembles the vessels.

The Zumwalt class is the Navy’s next-generation guided-missile destroyer tailored for land attack and littoral dominance.
