1 on Bridge
12 in CIC
Weapon Control System
provides fire control solutions
selects missile cells, launch time & launch order
passes launch signals to VLS
directs FCS during terminal phase of an SM engagement.
Interfaces w/ VLS, CIWS, LAMPS, ASROC, HARPOON, T-HAWK, & 5 inch.
FCS / MK 99 3
Fire Control System
Provides target illumination during terminal phase of an SM engagement.
Cooled by SPY skid
AEGIS Display System
Presents 3 categories of information:
Tactical Picture 2
Displayed on LSD (large screen displays)
Controlled from CO, TAO, & OSDA consoles
Displayed on ASTABS (automated status boards)
Displays targets w/ threat value & engagement status
Vertical Launching System
Validates AEGIS WCS, ASWCS, TTWCS commands and loads launch information into missiles.
Capable of firing SM-2, SM-3, SM-T, VLA, & TOMAHAWK missiles.
Launch control units 3
multiplex together to control VLS launchers.
VLS GPS Integrator.
Provides hot start for SM-3.
3 types of Modules 3
System Mod 7 - Launcher 400hz PDP and 60hz PDP and damage control junction box are connected to this module.
Strikedown Module 5 strike down crane takes up cell 6,7, and 8 on module 5.
Missiles fwd and aft
29 missiles forward
61 missiles aft
Standard Missile 2 5
Primary surface to air weapon & secondary surface to surface weapon. Uses a semi-active warhead
3 engagement phases
Boost guidance provided by internal navigation
Midcourse guidance provided by SPY radar
Terminal guidance provided by FCS illuminators (Last 7-10 secs based on angle and attack speed)
: 80 nm.
Standard Missile 3 5
Standard Missile T 3
Terminal phase of BMD engagement
ACTS/ BFTT 4
AEGIS Combat Trainer System
Interfaces w/ SPY, C&D, WCS, FCS, VLS, OBT and BEWT for training purposes.
LAN connection allows Hopper to take place in scenarios with other ships or stations simultaneously
N+1 configuration acts as a backup for SPY, C&D, WCS, ADS, & UWS.
Operational Readiness Test System
Interfaces w/ SPY, FCS, C&D, WCS, ADS, VLS, & ACTS for maintenance & testing purposes.
ORTS Equipment 2
ORTS Console (2 / CSMC)
RDT Remote Data Terminal (3 / Radar 2, Radar 3, CSER 2)
Detect to Engage Sequence 13
1.SPY detects contact, creates track, & passes data to C&D.
2.Track is identified using EWS, IFF and any other available intel.
3.Operator engages track.
4.WCS creates firing control solution.
5.Operator activates SM via C&D (step broken simplicity)
5.Launch signal is passed to VLS via WCS.
6.VLS launches SM.
7.SM uses internal navigation for guidance during boost phase.
8.SM establishes uplink/downlink with WCS via SPY for midcourse phase guidance.
9.WCS directs FCS to illuminate target during terminal phase.
10.SM locks on to reflected illumination for proximity detonation.
11.RSC(Radar System Coordinator) declares visual kill / no kill analysis
12.WCS calculates kill / no kill analysis
