Contractor: General Dynamics Electric Boat Corporation
General Dynamics Electric Boat Corp., Groton, Conn., is being awarded an $11,000,000 modification under previously awarded contract (N00024-11-C-2109) for engineering and technical design services to support research and development of advanced submarine technologies for current and future submarine platforms. Advanced submarine research and development includes studies to support the manufacturability, maintainability, producibility, reliability, manning, survivability, hull integrity, performance, structural, weight/margin, stability, arrangements, machinery systems, acoustics, hydrodynamics, ship control, logistics, human factors, materials, weapons handling and stowage, submarine safety, and affordability. The program also supports near term insertion of Virginia-class technology; identification of Ohio-class replacement technology options; future submarine concepts; and core technologies. Electric Boat is capable of performing the complete range of research and development work and possesses the requisite knowledge of the design, construction, and interaction of submarine systems to ensure that the integrity of the design is not compromised by developing technologies. This contract action transfers cost-plus-fixed-fee from an unexercised option into existing efforts. Work will be performed in Groton, Conn. (75 percent), and Newport News, Va. (25 percent), and is expected to be completed by October 2012. No funds will be allotted at the time of award. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
