GROTON (BNS): General Dynamics Electric Boat has received two US Navy contract modifications to continue development of the Common Missile Compartment for the next-generation strategic deterrent submarine and to support nuclear-submarine maintenance work.

The combined contract value is worth $41 million.

Under the first contract modification, the company will procure, manufacture and test prototype material and equipment to be used in the production of the Common Missile Compartment for the United Kingdom’s Successor ballistic-missile submarine and the United States’ Ohio replacement submarine.

The $16.1 million award modifies a $76 million contract announced in December 2008 for engineering, technical services, concept studies and design of a Common Missile Compartment for the next-generation ballistic missile submarines being developed by the Royal Navy and the US Navy.

Under the second award, valued at $24.9 million, Electric Boat will continue to operate the Nuclear Regional Maintenance Department (NRMD) at the naval submarine base in Groton, Connecticut.

The company will provide project management, planning, training and radiological-control services to support maintenance, modernisation and repairs, it said.
