Naval Ship Systems Training

U.S. Navy Destroyers provide multi-mission offensive and defensive capabilities and operate independently or as part of carrier strike groups, surface action groups, amphibious ready groups, and underway replenishment groups. These surface combatants are employed in the conduct of Anti-Air Warfare (AAW), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), and Anti-Surface Warfare (ASUW) missions, and the Navy considers the Arleigh Burke class destroyer (DDG-51) to be one of its most capable surface combatants.
