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."
Work stations in the operations center are outfitted with three common displays, Knudson says.

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.

Both Smith and Capt. Wade Knudson, the Navy's F-35 program manager, said program managers do not anticipate a delivery delay and both dispute the extent of the cost overruns found by the GAO.
Cost increases have been partially caused by the dollar's plummeting value, Knudson said, one week after the GAO report was released.
"We buy a lot of overseas materials," Knudson said.Exchange rate fluctuations "have played a substantial role in the development costs of the airplane."
Last week, the Euro rose to a record high, with one Euro worth $1.56, an increase that has caused significant cost increases because most of the foreign components will be built in Europe, which is also where much of the design work for the Lightning II will be done.Knudson was unable to say how much the currency fluctuations increased costs as of Tuesday afternoon, but he did say that program managers have offset currency fluctuations with savings in other design areas and effectively kept prices level within the past year.
Knudson said the Navy Department expects to pay approximately $60 million in 2002 dollars for each of the 680 F-35s it will buy.He said Navy Department officials have not yet decided what portion of the 680 will be carrier-based jets flown by Navy pilots and what portion will be short takeoff and vertical landing models for Marine pilots.
