Navy extends General Dynamics' work for U.S. and U.K. SSBN submarines
The contract continues a broad scope of work for fire control systems and subsystems aboard U.S. Navy and United Kingdom's Royal Navy nuclear ballistic-missile submarines (SSBN). The contract has a total potential value of $440 million over the next seven years.
General Dynamics will deliver support and modernization of the existing SSBN strategic weapon system including fire control subsystem installation, maintenance, sustainment, training and repairs to navigation and launch subsystems.
The company will also develop the fire control system for the U.S Navy's Ohio Replacement submarine and the Royal Navy's Successor-class ballistic-missile submarine, and the production of new systems for the Royal Navy's first-of-class SSBN 09 submarine and Trident Training Facility.
Work on the development and sustainment of the U.S. Navy's Ohio-class guided-missile submarine attack weapon control system is also part of the contract. ■
