Description: The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) DEX program is intended to deliver a compact and fast multi-purpose frigate/corvette class ship by 2019. The Japanese DEX class ship is similar to the US Navy's LCS 1 class vessels built by Lockheed Martin. The DEX boats displacement is estimated at between 2000-3000 tons with a maximum speed in excess of 40 knots. The weapon systems may include a 127mm naval gun, a Phalanx Close-In Weapon System (CIWS) and a Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) launcher to cope with airborne threats as well as a flight deck for a SH-60J helicopter. These corvettes are also intended to deploy manned and unmanned boats and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs). The DEX program was revealed in early 2014.
