Engagements validate defensive weapon's upgrades


TUCSON, Ariz., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The U.S. Navy completed the first series of developmental and operational testing (DT/OT) of Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) Rolling Airframe Missile Block 2.

In at-sea tests conducted from the U.S. Navy's Self-Defense Test Ship, RAM Block 2 missiles engaged two targets in tactical dual-salvo scenarios designed to demonstrate the advanced missile's defensive capabilities. The DT/OT tests successfully engaged high-speed, maneuvering and sub-sonic, maneuvering targets with all four RAM Block 2 missiles meeting test objectives.

"RAM Block 2's success in these developmental tests follows the completion of a series of guidance test vehicle flight tests," said Rick Nelson, vice president of Raytheon Missile Systems' Naval and Area Mission Defense product line. "RAM Block 2's increased kinematic capability and its advanced guidance system will continue to give the warfighter an unfair advantage in the fight."

Raytheon and its manufacturing partner RAMSYS of Germany were awarded the second U.S. Navy RAM Block 2 low-rate production contact for 61 missiles in December 2012. In addition, as previously reported, the company received a $155.6 million Block 2 production contract for the German navy earlier this year.

The RAM Block 2 upgrade includes a four-axis independent control actuator system and an increase in rocket motor capability, increasing the missile's effective range and delivering a significant increase in maneuverability. The improved missile also incorporates an upgraded passive radio frequency seeker, a digital autopilot and engineering changes in selected infrared seeker components.

RAM is a supersonic, lightweight, quick reaction, fire-and-forget missile providing defense against anti-ship cruise missiles, helicopter and airborne threats, and hostile surface craft. The missile's autonomous dual-mode, passive radio frequency and infrared guidance design provide a high-firepower capability for engaging multiple threats simultaneously. RAM is installed, or planned for installation, aboard more than 165 ships as an integral self-defense weapon for the navies of Egypt, Germany, Greece, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.

Sikorsky awarded $435 million contract for four CH-53K test aircraft

The US Navy is awarding Sikorsky a $435 million contract modification to build four more CH-53K prototype helicopters for operational evaluation purposes.

Instead of awarding a separate contract for the four system demonstration test articles, the Naval Air Systems Command has decided to add the machines to an existing $3.5 billion system development and demonstration contract that was awarded in April 2006.

The original contract obliged Sikorsky to build five developmental test aircraft and two ground static test airframes. The four additional aircraft are going to be used strictly for mission testing, Sikorsky says.

The first aircraft is expected to be delivered within 39 months and all four aircraft are scheduled for delivery by the end of March 2017 when the US Marine Corps hopes to start its operation evaluations. Those grueling trials call for the CH-53K to haul 12,247kg (27,000lb) over a distance of 110nm (204km/h)-meaning the new K-model will have three times the external payload capacity as the old E-model helicopter.

The four additional prototypes are not production aircraft, Sikorsky emphasises. Low rate initial production will start later, however, the extra machines do count against the total CH-53K programme of record consisting of 200 helicopters, meaning there will be a total of 196 production aircraft.

US Navy Awards $6.2 Billion In Destroyer Contracts

WASHINGTON — Construction contracts worth more than $6 billion were awarded Monday to shipbuilders General Dynamics and Huntington Ingalls to build nine new DDG 51 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, the US Navy announced, with an option for a tenth ship.

The awards keep destroyer construction humming at a pace that has been maintained since the DDG 51 class was restarted in 2009.

Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) received a $3,331,476,001 fixed-price-incentive firm target (FPIF) contract for the design and construction of five ships, one each in fiscal 2013 to 2017, the Navy said in a press release. The ships will all be built at the company’s Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss.

General Dynamics Bath Iron Works (BIW) was awarded a $2,843,385,450 FPIF contract for the design and construction of four ships, one in 2013 and one each in 2015 to 2017. The award also includes a contract option for a fifth ship, which, if approved, about be added to 2014.

The Navy officially has asked Congress to fund one ship in 2014, but is seeking multi-year procurement (MYP) authority to add a second ship in 2014, hence the option for another ship. Congress is generally disposed to support adding the ship, and the service, in a press release, said it is working with Capitol Hill “to resolve funding shortfalls resulting from sequestration reductions before contracting the tenth ship.”

HII received the five-ship MYP award due to a lower bid, which works out to about $666 million per ship. BIW’s four-ship award comes to nearly $711 million per ship.

The contract awards do not include high-priced government-furnished equipment (GFE) bought separately by the Navy. GFE includes such major items as the Aegis combat system and all weapon systems.

The construction awards, Navy said, are based on “a competitive allocation strategy used in the DDG 51 class shipbuilding program since 1996. Known as profit related to offers, or PRO, [the strategy] uses FPIF contracts to ensure reasonable prices while maintaining the industrial base.

“Congressional approval for the use of MYP contracts facilitated program budget savings of more than $1.5 billion while enabling the shipbuilders and equipment manufacturers to more efficiently plan future workloads,” the Navy said in its press release.

The nine-ship MYP awarded June 3 includes hull numbers DDG 117 through 125. The addition of a tenth ship would extend the contract through DDG 126.

Two ships already are funded in 2013, the Paul Ignatius (DDG 117), which will be built at Ingalls, and the Bath-build Daniel Inouye (DDG 118).

The yet-to-be-named DDG 119, requested in the 2014 budget, will be built at Ingalls.

Initially, the new ships will be built to the Flight IIA version of the Arleigh Burke class, to which all ships since DDG 79 have been completed.

Starting with the second ship in 2016, however, a significant addition, the new Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR), will be introduced to replace the SPY-1D radars in current ships. The AMDR, which will continue to work with the Aegis combat system, will have greater capabilities for the ballistic missile defense role, but also will require greater installed power and other design changes.

An AMDR contractor has yet to be chosen, although later this year the Navy is expected to select a radar from either Lockheed Martin, Raytheon or Northrop Grumman.

The switch to the Flight III will be contractually handled as an “engineering change proposal,” the Navy said.

It is not yet decided which hull, or which shipbuilder, will handle the first Flight III ship. Should Congress fund only one ship in 2014, Ingalls would also get DDG 120 in 2015, with DDG 121 going to Bath. That would work out to Bath building the first AMDR ship, which would be DDG 123.

Should the second 2014 ship be added, DDG 120 would become a Bath ship, and the second 2016 ship would become DDG 124, built at Ingalls.

It is also possible construction of the first AMDR ship could slide and be awarded at a later date, although that is not now the Navy’s intention.

Bath Iron Works continues as the DDG 51 program’s lead design shipyard, a position it has held since the 1980s.

Arleigh Burke destroyers currently under construction include the John Finn (DDG 113) and Ralph Johnson (DDG 114) at Ingalls, and the Rafael Peralta (DDG 115) and Thomas Hudner (DDG 116) at Bath.

Northrop Lands a Pair of Follow-On E-2D "Hawkeye" Contracts

By Rich Smith | More Articles
June 4, 2013 | Comments (0)


Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC ) won a pair of Pentagon contracts Tuesday, both benefiting the U.S. Navy, and both relating to the Navy's E-2D Advanced Hawkeye airborne early warning aircraft.

The smaller of the two awards, not to exceed $7.5 million in value, is a delivery order under a previously awarded Basic Ordering Agreement calling upon Northrop to repair 43 line items on the Advanced Hawkeye System used on the E-2D aircraft. Northrop is to complete these repairs by June 3, 2015.

The larger award by a factor of two, for $17.1 million, modifies a different previously awarded contract, this one for the advanced acquisition of product, fleet, and engineering support needed to begin full rate production of Lot 1 E-2D Advanced Hawkeyes. This contract should be completed by June 2014.

Northrop describes the Advanced Hawkeye as the "digital quarterback" of a Navy carrier strike group. Its role is to sweep the battlefield ahead of a strike force with its powerful airborne radars, detecting threats and assigning assets to meet these threats. In battle, the Advanced Hawkeye "manages" the Navy's warplanes in the air, identifying and keeping track of friendly and unfriendly aircraft and warning the seaborne fleet away from danger.

DDG 51 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers Multiyear Procurement Contract Awarded
The US Navy awarded two contracts for the DDG 51 fiscal years (FY) 2013-2017 multiyear procurement (MYP) for DDG 51 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers June 3. General Dynamics Bath Iron Works (BIW) is being awarded a $2,843,385,450 fixed-price incentive firm target (FPIF) contract for the design and construction of four DDG 51 class ships, one in FY 2013 and one each in FY 2015-2017. This award also includes a contract option for a fifth ship.Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) is being awarded a $3,331,476,001 fixed-price-incentive firm target (FPIF) contract for the design and construction of five DDG 51 class ships, one each in FY 2013-2017.

These multiyear procurement awards are for a total of nine ships, with an option for a tenth ship. The Navy's objective is to procure the tenth ship as part of the planned FY 2013-2017 MYP. The Navy will work with Congress to resolve funding shortfalls resulting from sequestration reductions before contracting for the 10th ship.

"These contract awards represent great value to the taxpayer and will ensure our warfighters have the ships and systems they need to prevail in any situation," said Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. "By leveraging competition in the DDG 51 class shipbuilding program, these shipbuilders will continue their proud histories in delivering these highly capable ships to the fleet while meeting critical operational requirements for integrated air and missile defense capability."

A competitive allocation strategy used in the DDG 51 class shipbuilding program since 1996, known as profit related to offers, or PRO, uses FPIF contracts to ensure reasonable prices while maintaining the industrial base. Congressional approval for the use of MYP contracts facilitated program budget savings of more than $1.5 billion while enabling the shipbuilders and equipment manufacturers to more efficiently plan future workloads.

"I am proud of the success of the DDG 51 program and appreciate Congress' continued support and approval of the Navy's multiyear procurement request," said Mabus. "This award enables stability in our industrial base and ensures the Navy and the nation get the most efficient and affordable build plan for these destroyers."

The destroyers are being procured in a Flight IIA configuration, relying on a stable and mature infrastructure while increasing the ship's air and missile defense capabilities through spiral upgrades to the weapons and sensor suites.

The Navy plans to introduce the first DDG 51 Flight III on the second ship in FY 2016. Once Flight III requirements are approved, the new baseline will be implemented as an engineering change proposal. It is anticipated that the Flight III design will replace the Aegis AN/SPY-1D radar with the Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) and provide for more electrical power and cooling capacity, providing the next generation of integrated air and missile defense and joint battle space awareness.

La Navy modernise ses E-6B «Mercury»!




L'US Navy va moderniser les systèmes de communication sur son avion de commandement aéroporté E-6B «Mercury». Cette amélioration permettra en autre la mise en réseau du système avec les autres plateformes aériennes et maritimes.

Boeing, le constructeur du E-6B (basé sur une cellule de B707) et Rockwell Collins seront les fournisseurs pour la mise à niveau IPBE (Internet Protocol and Bandwidth Expansion). Les modifications prévoient que l'E-6B dispose d’une architecture de système entièrement numérique et d’un nouveau système de communication. Le système en réseau élargi et sécurisé permettra un flux en direct «Line-Of-Sight» de données numériques à ultra-hautes fréquences.

Au total se sont 12 appareils de type E-6B «Mercury» qui sont concernés par ces améliorations. L’E-6B devrait rester en service jusqu’en 2038.


Le Boeing E-6B «Mercury» :

Le E-6A, nommé «Hermes» à l'origine, entra en service le 3 août 1989, au sein de la VQ-3 "Ironmen". Il équipa également la VQ-4 "Shadows" en janvier 1991, afin de remplacer les EC-130Q de la Navy. Il fut construit à 16 exemplaires. Plus de 20 équipages sont opérationnels sur cet appareil, basé à Tinker AFB. A l'automne 1991, l'US Navy suggéra de le renommer Mercury. Il dispose en particulier du système LTWA (Long Trailing Wire Aerial), consistant en 2 antennes, l'une longue de 1’525 m et l'autre de 8’500 m. L'appareil volant en cercle peut alors entrer en communication VLF (pour Very Low Frequency, soit entre 3Khz et 30Khz. Cette gamme de fréquence à onde longue est la plus à même de pénétrer l'eau) avec les sous-marins. Une grande attention a été portée à la résistance au brouillage électromagnétique.

Le E-6B, lui, vola pour la première fois en 1997, afin de remplacer les EC-135 de l'Air Force et entra en service en octobre 1998. Les modifications concernent principalement le cockpit, plus proche du Boeing B737, la capacité de servir de relais aux silos basés à terre et de poste de commande. La fonction dite "Looking Glass", ou mission ABNCP (Airborne National Command Post), permet à l'avion en vol de prendre le relais si jamais les postes de commandement nucléaires sont détruits, grâce au système ALCS (Airborne Launch Control System).

UPDATE 1-Bell, Boeing to get order for 99 more V-22 Ospreys

WASHINGTON, June 10 (Reuters) - The U.S. Navy plans to sign this week a five-year contract valued just under $6.5 billion to buy 99 new V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft built by Boeing Co and Bell Helicopter, a unit of Textron Inc, the program's manager said in an interview on Monday.

Marine Corps Colonel Gregory Masiello said the multiyear contract, the second one signed for the program, covers the period from fiscal year 2013 through 2017 and includes options for 22 additional aircraft. He said the government's decision to sign the five-year agreement underscored its confidence in a program that had once been threatened with cancellation.

"Given the current fiscal situation, it speaks volumes as far as the confidence that the Department of Defense and the government have in the V-22," Masiello told Reuters. "This is a big year for us."

He said 92 of the aircraft in the new order would be built for the Marine Corps, the main buyer of the V-22s, with the Air Force set to receive seven aircraft. The Navy's Naval Air Systems Command oversees the program and negotiates contracts with the manufacturers.

Boeing and Bell Helicopter jointly build the V-22 aircraft, or Osprey, which can fly as fast as a plane but lands like a helicopter. The program is getting good reviews for its performance in combat after a rocky start that saw 23 Marines killed during flight testing in 2000. Two more Marines were killed during a training exercise in Morocco last year.

Masiello said the five-year contract would save the Navy $1 billion compared with buying the aircraft one at a time.

The Navy is already exploring the possibility of a third multiyear contract for 100 or more aircraft, which could include the 48 V-22s that the Navy plans to buy for its own use, as well as possible international sales, he said.

"I don't think it's too soon for us to start working on those details," he said, noting the aircraft's performance since its first deployment in 2007 was fueling international demand and could generate other orders in the United States.

The contract signing is scheduled for Wednesday. Masiello said the contract would be a modification of an initial single-year deal valued at $1.4 billion that was announced in December.

He said the agreement was good news for the prime contractors on the program, but would also stabilize production for smaller suppliers that build parts for the aircraft.

He said the program was making good strides and the 214 aircraft in use now had flown nearly 190,000 hours in combat.

One V-22 would be used this week on the USS Truman for a series of exercises aimed at demonstrating its ability to deliver food and other cargo to Navy ships at sea, Masiello said. The Navy could save billions of dollars if it used the V-22 to replace its fleet of aging C-2 supply aircraft, he said.

Two V-22s had also been added to the military unit that flies the U.S. president, while others were being deployed to Britain and Spain, he said.

International interest in the new aircraft also remained high, Masiello said, noting that the U.S. government had provided briefings to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, Brazil, Colombia, Singapore and Australia.

He said the Pentagon was exchanging letters with three countries on possible V-22 purchases but did not name them.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced in April that Israel would be the first foreign buyer of the V-22. Sources said Israel would receive five or six V-22s at an estimated price of $70 million each.

Citation :
The U.S. Navy’s next-generation maritime patrol jet, the Boeing P-8 Poseidon, is months away from starting its first operational deployment, which will hasten the retirement of the venerable P-3C Orion turboprop.

Boeing (Chalets A324, B321) has ramped up production of the Poseidon as it nears full-rate production and initial operational capability (IOC) decisions from the U.S. Navy this year. The company produced seven P-8s in 2012; this year it plans to deliver 11 jets, including three to the Indian navy.
The Boeing 737-800 military derivative completed initial operational test and evaluation by the Navy at Patuxent River, Maryland, in March. Low-rate initial production (LRIP) P-8As started arriving at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, in Florida, in March 2012. There, the Navy is training the first operational squadrons. The service plans to deploy Patrol Squadron 16 (VP-16)–the “War Eagles,” with six Poseidons–to Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan in December, bringing new capability to the Pacific theater. In order, the VP-5 “Mad Foxes” and VP-45 “Pelicans” will be the next squadrons to operate the P-8A.
“We’re transitioning to operational capability,” said Rick Heerdt, Boeing P-8 program manager. “Transitioning to operational capability is more than delivering airplanes, it’s delivering the entire capability that surrounds [them]. It includes training, logistics support, ground support equipment and the technical support that goes with deploying an operational capability.”
The P-8 will replace the Lockheed P-3C four-engine turboprop, first delivered to the Navy in 1969, to provide long-range anti-submarine warfare (ASW), anti-surface warfare (ASuW) and armed intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. The Navy’s program of record for the P-8 specifies 117 aircraft, in addition to six test aircraft. In December 2011, the Pentagon estimated the average procurement unit cost of the P-8 would be $198.6 million.
Poseidons will work in tandem with the new Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton, an unmanned Global Hawk derivative. The latter aircraft is also progressing; the Triton logged its first flight on May 22 from Palmdale, California.
The Navy awarded Boeing three LRIP contracts for the P-8A in 2011 and 2012 for a total value of $5.2 billion. The manufacturer was completing the second of the three LRIP lots that combined number 24 P-8As; it reported delivering nine jets as of May. Boeing also delivered the first of eight P-8Is ordered by India, the first international buyer of the Poseidon. That aircraft arrived at India Naval Station Rajali on May 15. The schedule calls for delivering two more P-8Is this year, with the balance of five aircraft in 2014. The contract with India includes an option for four additional aircraft.
Australia, a second potential international customer, has expressed a requirement for eight of the jets and since 2009 has collaborated on a second-increment enhancement of the Poseidon, which is currently a baseline Increment 1 capability aircraft. Egan Greenstein, Boeing P-8 business development director, said he was involved in 15 “campaigns” with other potential customers for up to 60 aircraft.
Last month, Greenstein led a walk-around of an LRIP 2 jet that was cycling through the company’s mission systems installation and checkout facility at Boeing Field. P-8 fuselages produced by Spirit AeroSystems in Wichita, Kansas, are shipped by rail to Boeing’s 737 manufacturing facility in Renton, Washington. The airframes are assembled with reinforced 737-900 wings as part of an “in-line” provisioning process that incorporates structural features unique to the P-8 during fabrication and assembly. Boeing estimates that 80 percent of P-8 and commercial 737 structures are common. The aircraft are then painted and flown to nearby Boeing Field, where mission systems are installed.
A standard Poseidon crew consists of nine people: two pilots and a relief pilot, five mission system operators and one crewman for loading sonobuoys for launch. The five mission operator consoles line the port side of the cabin. The length of the fuselage is windowless except for two large observer windows, one on either side of the forward cabin. The aircraft is powered by twin CFM 56-7B engines and armed with four AGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missiles on wing hard points. In its belly is an internal weapons bay that accommodates five Raytheon MK 54 torpedoes or other armament.
The Poseidon employs an integrated sonobuoy launch and acoustic signal processing system to detect, identify and track submarines. There are two sonobuoy storage racks on each side of the fuselage in the aft section of the aircraft resembling wine racks. Each rack holds 48 sonobuoys for 96 total, and there is storage capacity available for about 25 more–in total, 50 percent more capacity than on the P-3C. The 30-pound sonobuoys are hand-loaded into adjacent rotary launchers from ITT Exelis; these use compressed air to eject sonobuoys from the bottom of the aircraft. “They’re designed so that they can very rapidly deploy buoys under computer control,” Greenstein said of the launchers. “The mission commander designs a tactic [and] sends the tactic to the autopilot. The pilots accept it, and the airplane flies the pattern and deploys the buoys automatically.”
Another major P-8 sensor system is the Raytheon AN/APY-10 multi-mode maritime surveillance radar, installed in an enlarged nose fairing on the aircraft. Among other systems, Northrop Grumman provides the aircraft’s AN/ALQ-240(V)1 electronic support measures (ESM) system to detect and identify electronic threats; early warning self-protection system and embedded global GPS/inertial navigation system. The aircraft is fitted with an L-3 Wescam MX-20HD electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor turret. GE Aviation supplies the flight management and stores management systems, and BAE Systems provides the mission computer system.
New capabilities are being added as engineering change proposals to the P-8 baseline program. Increment 2 will introduce an automatic identification system transponder and receiver, Multi-static Active Coherent (MAC) wide-area acoustic search system and high-altitude ASW weapon capability between 2014 and 2016. Increment 3 is planned to field in FY2020, and includes communications upgrades, a “net-enabled anti-surface warfare weapon” and a guidance update to the high-altitude ASW weapons capability, according to the Navy.
Boeing has been evaluating platforms for a smaller maritime surveillance aircraft (MSA) based on the P-8 system architecture. Tim Peters, Boeing general manager of mobility, surveillance and engagement, said the MSA would have a maritime surveillance radar different from that of the P-8, and be offered for “somewhere about a third of what a P-8 would cost.”

P-8A SIMULATOR TRAINING
In April 2012, Boeing started operating what it calls the International Multi-Intelligence Operational Lab Environment (I-MOLE) in Kent, Washington, to serve as a high-fidelity simulation laboratory for developing new capabilities and as an aircraft simulator for crew familiarization training. The 7,200-sq-ft facility contains a 737 flight deck with P-8 representative displays, a back end with five mission system operator consoles running mission-system software, and ISR “prototyping lines” to plug in sensors and develop system functions. The company has a contract with India to train Indian P-8I crews there through the end of this year. The first cadre of pilots, maintainers and mission system operators completed the training and returned to India.
U.S. Navy P-8A crews run through a separate, restricted lab environment, which Boeing established five years ago. The Navy maintains a P-8 systems integration laboratory at NAS Patuxent River for systems test and evaluation, and an integrated training center at NAS Jacksonville for crew training.

Raytheon Looks At Options For Long-Range AIM-9
Raytheon is looking at ways to respond to an urgent U.S. Navy call for a new version of the AIM-9X Sidewinder with greatly increased range, Vice President for Air Warfare Systems Harry Schulte said at the Paris air show June 19.
Although the Block II version of the missile is still in operational testing, the Navy wants to get the long-range Block III into developmental testing by 2018, according to budget documents.
The Block III “overlaps the range capability” of the AIM-120 Amraam, Schulte says.
Along with Navy efforts to add an infrared search and track system to the Super Hornet, it’s a response to “a particular threat that presents difficulties in RF” (radio-frequency). Asked whether the threat is Chinese, Schulte says “it could be.”
Boeing has said that the Hornet IRST program is a response to “RF-denied environments,” a likely reference to high-powered jamming. The new missile will use the Block II seeker, datalink and optical fuze but will almost certainly require a new motor.
“We could look at a fatter motor or a two-pulse motor,” Schulte says, possibly growing the weapon’s diameter from five to six inches.
Developing the motor raises challenges for Raytheon. Motor production at its previous Amraam motor supplier, ATK, has been shut down because inside and outside investigations have not found the reason why its motors started to fail cold-soak fires in 2010-11.
Amraam motors are now being built by Nammo in Norway, using a propellant based on the motor of the German-led IRIS-T infrared air-to-air missile, while ATK seeks a new propellant formulation. Raytheon is partnered with Rafael on the Stunner missile, which is under test and uses a Rafael-developed three-pulse motor. However, no formal talks with Rafael have taken place concerning the AIM-9X Block III.

General Dynamics Awarded $209 Million for Future Virginia-class Submarines

GROTON, Conn. – The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Electric Boat a $208.6 million contract modification to buy long lead-time material for three Virginia-class submarines. Electric Boat is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).

Recognized as a model defense-acquisition program for its technical excellence and schedule performance, the Virginia-class submarine program provides the Navy with the capabilities required to dominate both the open ocean and the littorals. In partnership with the Navy, Electric Boat is driving innovative cost-saving efforts, without impacting capabilities, through overall efficiency improvements, decreased ship-construction labors costs and shortened ship-construction cycle times.

As a result of this successful program performance and demand for the versatile capabilities of the Virginia-class submarine, the Navy authorized Electric Boat to start construction of two submarines per year beginning in 2011. This contract provides funding for the second fiscal year (FY) 14 Virginia-class submarine, SSN-793, and two FY 15 submarines, SSN-794 and SSN-795. Items funded include steam and electrical-plant components, main propulsion unit and ship-service turbine generator sets, and miscellaneous hull, mechanical and electrical-systems components to support construction of the submarines.

With this modification, the overall contract is worth $595 million. It was initially awarded in April 2012.
