General Dynamics awarded $101.3M contract modification
The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat a $101.3M contract modification to continue development of the Common Missile Compartment for the Navy's Ohio Replacement submarine and the United Kingdom's Successor-class ballistic-missile submarine. The modification is for the procurement of 22 missile tubes to support the manufacturing of the Common Missile Compartment. Electric Boat is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics. Initially awarded in December 2012, the five-year, $1.85B contract calls for Electric Boat to perform research and development work for the Navy's next-generation ballistic-missile submarine, which is scheduled to begin construction in 2021. The potential value of the overall contract is $2.5B.
