Hailed as 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 successfully pursuing its goal to reduce ship costs while maintaining capabilities through overall efficiency improvements, decreased ship-construction labors costs and shortened ship-construction cycle times.
