The Ship Self Defense System (SSDS) is a combat system that integrates sensors and weapons to provide an automated quick response to multiple targets in littoral environments, and is currently installed or will be installed on six classes of amphibious ships and aircraft carriers. The latest generation of SSDS will improve capability and reliability and reduce cost compared to earlier versions.
The Electromet Corporation supports this program by providing rugged electronic cabinets that contain the SSDS electronics. Initial deliveries began in February 2014. The flexibility and adaptability of Electromet cabinet designs supports advancing technology while maintaining rugged, shock and vibration protection, making Electromet an optimal, best-value partner.
