Bath Iron Works was quoted by The Diplomat as saying: “Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) is currently on builder’s trials, testing the hull, mechanical and engineering components of the ship.
“While all these systems are tested pierside, there is no substitute for the real world testing taking place in the Gulf of Maine.”

The DDG 1001 is slated to be commissioned with the US Navy in early 2019 in Coronado, California.
Once commissioned, the vessel will operate as one of the largest destroyers and most technologically advanced surface combatants in the world.
The Zumwalt-class lead ship, the USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000), was commissioned into active service last year at North Locust Point in Baltimore.
