NORTH KINGSTOWN – The U.S. Navy has awarded $35.8 million through two ongoing contracts with General Dynamics Electric Boat to perform advanced submarine research and develop modules for the Ohio-class replacement submarine at its facility in Quonset.

Under the first contract, valued at $19.8 million, Electric Boat will conduct research and development work in submarine technology, including manufacturability, maintainability, survivability, hydrodynamics, acoustics, materials, manning, hull integrity, performance, ship control, logistics, weapons handling and safety.

Initially awarded in November 2010, the contract has a potential total value of $710.6 million over a five-year period and supports near-term development of the Virginia-class submarine – one of the ships constructed at the Electric Boat facility in North Kingstown’s Quonset Business Park – as well as future submarine technology.

The second Navy contract, valued at $16 million, tasks Electric Boat with the development of the common missile compartment for the Navy’s next-generation ballistic missile submarine to replace the aging fleet of U.S. Ohio-class submarines.

The contract was first awarded in December 2012 and has a potential total value of $2.3 billion. Construction of the Ohio-class replacement is scheduled to begin construction in 2021, and will take place at least in part at Electric Boat’s Quonset facility.
