PASCAGOULA (BNS): US Navy has officially accepted the latest Aegis guided missile destroyer, USS William P. Lawrence (DDG 110) from Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding in Pascagoula.

Designated DDG 110, William P. Lawrence is the 60th ship of the Arleigh Burke class.

The destroyer exhibited significant improvements in the level of completion, final finish and performance compared to previous ships of the class.

"DDG 110 proved her operational worth last month in a rigorous round of sea trial evolutions, so we know she can perform as designed," said Capt. Pete Lyle, Program Executive Office (PEO) Ships DDG 51 Class programme manager.

William P. Lawrence is a multi-mission guided-missile destroyer designed to operate in multi-threat air, surface and subsurface environments. The ship is equipped with the Navy's Aegis Combat System.

Currently, the majority of shipbuilding programmes are managed by PEO Ships, which is also responsible for executing the development and procurement of all major surface combatants, amphibious ships, special mission and support ships and special warfare craft.
