In January 2023, Ingalls was awarded a US$10.5 million contract for the modernisation period planning of Zumwalt-class guided-missile destroyers, USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) and USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001). USS Michael Monsoor will receive the CPS install at Ingalls during a future modernisation period.
