General Dynamics Awarded Contract for Continued Columbia-class Development

GROTON, Conn. — The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat a $126.1 million contract modification to continue development of the Common Missile Compartment for the U.S. Navy’s Columbia-class submarine and the Royal Navy’s Successor-class ballistic-missile submarine, the company announced in an April 3 release. Electric Boat is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics.

The contract modification includes funding for procurement of long-lead time material for missile tubes which will be integrated into both the Navy’s new SSBN and the Royal Navy’s Dreadnought-class strategic missile submarine.

Initially awarded in September, the 14-year, $5.1 billion contract calls for Electric Boat to perform design and development work for the Navy’s next-generation ballistic-missile submarine, which is scheduled to begin construction in fall of 2020. The potential value of the overall contract is $6.1 billion.
