The smaller crew is made possible by advanced automated systems which "make it much easier and much more effective for the sailor to operate," says former Navy Capt. Wade Knudson, who now serves as Zumwalt program director for Pentagon contractor, Raytheon.
In the operations center -- which in many ways is the heart of the ship -- sailors are surrounded by an array of video displays that have been designed to be used by a generation raised on video games, Knudson says.
Raytheon tested the technology configuration in the operation center with young, gamer sailors, Knudson says. "We've brought them down to our labs and we got direct feedback from them using human-factor engineers in order to make sure that we've integrated all the displays and information in a way that they can use the systems most effectively."
The result, he says, is less chance of making errors on the ship. "The system and the computer provide information to the sailor in a way that they're used to."
Work stations inside the center are outfitted with three common displays, Knudson says.

The advanced technology used makes "it much easier and much more effective for the sailor to operate," says former Navy Captain Wade Knudson, now the Zumwalt program director for Pentagon contractor, Raytheon.
According to Knudson, the operations center is filled with a vast array of video displays that have been designed directly for a generation of sailors raised with video games. Raytheon tested these new technologies with sailors who were younger gamers.
"We've brought them down to our labs and we got direct feedback from them using human-factor engineers in order to make sure that we've integrated all the displays and information in a way that they can use the systems most effectively," he said.
This results in fewer chances of errors aboard the ship. "The system and the computer provide information to the sailor in a way that they're used to."

According to Wade Knudson, Raytheon's DDG 1000 Program Manager, Zumwalt has an entirely new radar, the Raytheon SPY-3, installed in three faces and embedded in the superstructure. The Zumwalt's AN/SPY-3 is an active electronically scanned array (AESA) X-band multifunction radar. The ship was originally going to be equipped with a dual band radar with both the SPY-3 and a volume search radar, an installation also found aboard USS Gerald Ford (CVN 78). But according to Knudson, the SPY-3 software has been modified. "We created additional software code for the SPY-3 to add the volume search capability for DDG 1000," said Knudson. Because they can't radiate the radar yet, the SPY-3 radar will be taken to the Wallops Island test facility to operate in the maritime environment. "We'll be flying aircraft and missile targets at the radar to evaluate the performance. Then we'll take the radar to the self-defense test ship at Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme for more testing," Knudson said.

Think of it as a gigantic floating drone: "Most UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles] are a few million dollars," says Wade Knudson, who heads the Zumwalt project for Raytheon (RTN), which made most of the ship's computer systems.

"He's got that capability right where he's at; he doesn't have to run 600 feet and up multiple levels to get up to where he has to be," says Knudson. The captain just signs in to the nearest console and enters a password, as if he's doing some online banking.
