ear legacy of providing advanced fire-control systems for the U.S. Navy submarine programs and the company is developing and integrating commercial off-the-shelf software and hardware upgrades to improve the tactical control capabilities for various submarine classes. The company developed the combat and seaframe control systems and is the lead systems integrator for the Navy’s Independence-variant LCS and the electronic systems for the Navy’s Joint High Speed Vessel. Information Systems and Technology provides ISR solutions for classified programs. The company’s expertise includes multi-intelligence ground systems and large-scale, high-performance data and signal processing. It delivers long-life sensors and payloads designed to perform in the extreme environments, including space payloads, and undersea sensor and power systems. The company’s Information Systems and Technology group offers cyber security-related products and services to help customers protect their networks from internal and external threats and prevent data breaches. The company has developed information assurance technologies that are integral to defending critical information, including a deployed Type 1 network encryptor. It also supports the DoD’s Cyber Crime Center and the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity Protection System. Marine Systems The company’s Marine Systems group designs, builds, and supports submarines and surface ships for the U.S. Navy and Jones Act ships for commercial customers. The company is a primary shipbuilder for the Navy. The company’s Marine Systems group’s portfolio of platforms and capabilities includes nuclear-powered submarines; surface combatants; auxiliary and combat-logistics ships; commercial product carriers and containerships; design and engineering support; and overhaul, repair, and lifecycle support services. The company’s work for the Navy includes the construction of new ships, and the design and development of next-generation platforms to help meet evolving missions and maintain desired fleet size. The company’s major Navy ship-construction programs include Virginia-class nuclear-powered submarines, Arleigh Burke-class (DDG-51) and Zumwalt-class (DDG-1000) guided-missile destroyers, and Mobile Landing Platform (MLP) auxiliary support ships. The Virginia-class submarine includes capabilities for open-ocean and littoral missions. These stealthy boats are suited for various global assignments, including intelligence gathering, special-operations missions, and sea-based missile launch. The Navy is procuring Virginia-class submarines in multi-boat blocks. In 2014, the company received a contract for the construction of 10 submarines in the fourth block of the program, bringing the number of boats under contract to 28. The company’s Marine Systems group has delivered 11 of these boats in conjunction with an industry partner that share in the construction. The remaining 17 boats under contract are scheduled for delivery through 2023. The company is a designer and producer of DDG-51s, managing the design, modernization, and lifecycle support of these ships. As the active destroyer in the Navy’s global surface fleet, DDG-51s are multi-mission combatants that offer defense against a range of threats, including ballistic missiles. The company has construction contracts for seven DDG-51s scheduled for delivery through 2022. The company’s Marine Systems group is a Navy's contractor involved in development and construction of the DDG-1000 platform. These ships are equipped with various technological improvements, including a low radar profile, an integrated power system, and advanced gun systems that provide a three-fold increase in range over current naval surface gun weapons. Deliveries of the three ships in the program are scheduled through 2019. MLP ships serve as floating transfer stations, improving the Navy’s ability to deliver equipment and cargo to areas without adequate port access. The company’s Marine Systems group has delivered the first two ships in the program, and construction is underway on two additional ships scheduled for delivery in 2015 and 2018. The th
