The Columbia-class (SSBN)

Newport News Shipbuilding is partnering with General Dynamics Electric. Boat (EB) to build the Columbia-class of submarines, the newest generation of ballistic missile submarines replacing the aging Ohio-class. The new submarines will make up one leg of the U.S. strategic nuclear deterrent triad. The 561-foot-long submarines will include a new life-of-ship reactor, an electric drive propulsion system and field 16 Trident II D5 ballistic missiles.

Building on the success of the Virginia-class submarine program, NNS and EB will build 12 Columbia-class submarines between 2021 and 2039 with EB as the prime contractor. NNS will participate in the design and will manufacture major Columbia-class assemblies and modules, including the bow, stern, auxiliary machinery room, superstructure and weapons modules.

The Virginia-class (SSN)

Using expertise developed from building dozens of submarines, Newport News Shipbuilding is one of only two shipyards capable of designing and building nuclear-powered submarines. We also provide design and engineering services and fleet maintenance support around the world. We are building the U.S. Navy’s most advanced attack submarines in the world — the Virginia-class. Designed to meet the Navy’s requirements in a post-Cold War era, Virginia-class submarines use advanced technologies to increase firepower, maneuverability and stealth. The submarines are capable of submerged speeds of more than 25 knots and can stay submerged for up to three months at a time.

Under an innovative agreement, Newport News Shipbuilding is producing these submarines as part of a teaming agreement with General Dynamics Electric Boat.

Prior to the Virginia-class, Newport News Shipbuilding designed the Los Angeles-class submarines and constructed 29 of the 62 boats built.
