Ingalls Shipbuilding

Ingalls Shipbuilding division of Litton Industries, Pascagoula, Miss., specializes in the design, construction, fleet support and modernization of advanced surface combatant ships.

In its 800-acre facility, the yard uses modular production techniques, supported by CAD/CAM systems. Currently, Ingalls has two Wasp class ships under construction, and is also building Arleigh Burke (DDG 51) class Aegis guided missile destroyers, with 14 vessels contracted, and six already delivered. Additionally, Ingalls is converting USS Inchon, delivered by the yard originally in 1970, from its amphibious mission (LPH 12) for duty as a mine countermeasures command and support ship (MCS 12). The yard is the designer and builder of the Navy's two newest classes of amphibious assault ships, LHAsandLHDs. The yard has also been granted an export license to market diesel-electric submarines in a teaming arrangement with Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW) of Kiel, Germany.
