The Defense Department has awarded contracts worth $1.4 billion each to Bath Iron Works, a unit of General Dynamics Corp., and to Northrop Grumman Corp. to build two new Naval destroyers. The DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class attack ships will be the lead vessels in a class of new Naval destroyers. The ships will cost roughly $2.4 billion each once they are fully loaded with radar, combat systems, and guns, said John Young, undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology, and logistics. Northrop Grumman and Bath Iron Works will each build one of the ships based on the same design. Bath Iron Works will complete most of its work in Bath, Maine, and is expected to deliver the first ship in 2012.
