NNS Wins $65 M Contract For Submarine Work

Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) was awarded a contract worth nearly $65 million for continued design and support services for the U.S. Navy's Seawolf class of attack submarines. NNS has worked as the lead design agent for the Seawolf class since design work began in 1987. The first and second ships of the class are currently under construction at General Dynamics' Electric Boat Div. in Groton, Conn. As the lead design agent for the ship, NNS will provide advice to the shipbuilder during ship testing and continued logistics support, such as digital technical manuals for the ship's equipment systems. "This contract extension is particularly important to us now that the Navy's submarine work is decreasing," said J im Palmer, vice president, engineering, NNS. "It helps us maintain our competitive position for future submarine design work while the Navy continues to get the benefit of the innovative design approach we are providing for the Seawolf submarine."The first ship of the class, SeawolfiSSN 21) is scheduled for delivery in May 1996.
