Northrop Grumman Ship Systems proposed a peripheral vertical launching system alternative to the traditional VLS configuration of centralized missile magazines. The DD(X) team's launcher concept consists of a PLVS that distributes the missile launchers in four different cell compartments along the ship's hull starting at the forward gun an ending just aft of midships. The PLVS launcher configuration was chosen due to the significant enhancment in ship survivability.

The four cell missile launcher housed in the PLVS launcher compartment is called the advanced vertical launching system. The AVLS is the actual mechanical and electrical subsystem assoicated with storing and launching missiles, while the PVLS is the shipboard launcher compartment in which the AVLS is installed.

This system will quadroppel the missiles that are able to be fired at one time. When installed on the modified ohio class subs they will be able to shoot 100 missiles are more in one salvo.
