I'm sure it's triple redundant, but probably has something or the order of a naval version of Synthetic Aperture Radar as a backup if necessary. Plus I'll bet there are some really cool links to real-time or near-real-time sat imaging. I'm guessing of course, but it seems quite possible.
here's an older pic when it was under construction.

Wasn't there a hot new class of ships that is supposed to be ready soon? IIRC, it was a retooling of an existing class, but had some amazing capabilities.
There was a thread about it here several months ago.
