General Dynamics to Work on Viriginia-Sub Upgrades
The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat a $102.8 million contract modification to provide research and development and lead-yard services for Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarines.
Under the contract, Electric Boat will undertake development studies and other work related to Virginia-class submarine design improvements. Additionally, Electric Boat will perform research and development work required to evaluate new technology to be inserted in newly built Virginia-class ships.
This modification brings the cumulative value of the contract, initially awarded in 2010, to $1.1 billion.
This work will engage Electric Boat’s engineering and design organization.
