In 2015, the company consolidated two businesses in the group to form General Dynamics Mission Systems to be responsive to its customers. The group is positioned to continue meeting the needs of its customer base. Marine Systems This business group is a primary designer and builder of nuclear-powered submarines, surface combatants and auxiliary and combat-logistics ships for the U.S. Navy, and Jones Act ships for commercial customers. The company provides value-added engineering, construction and assembly work, as well as lifecycle support. This business 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 services; and overhaul, repair and lifecycle support services. The company is a primary shipbuilder for the U.S. Navy. The company constructs and delivers new ships, and designs and develops the next-generation of platforms for the Navy. Approximately 90 percent of this business group’s revenue is for major Navy ship-construction, engineering and lifecycle support programs awarded under multi-ship contracts. These programs include Virginia-class nuclear-powered submarines built by Electric Boat, Arleigh Burke-class (DDG-51) and DDG-1000 guided-missile destroyers manufactured by Bath Iron Works and Expeditionary Mobile Base (ESB) auxiliary support ships produced by NASSCO. The company is the prime contractor for the Virginia-class submarine program. Designed for the range of global mission requirements, including intelligence gathering, special-operations missions and sea-based missile launch, these stealthy boats excel in littoral and open-ocean environments. The company has delivered 12 submarines in conjunction with an industry partner that shares in the construction. In 2015, the company completed the ramp-up in construction from one to two Virginia-class submarines per year. The remaining 16 submarines under contract are scheduled for delivery through 2023. The company is also developing the Virginia Payload Module (VPM) for the next block of Virginia-class submarines that is expected to start construction in 2019. The VPM is an 80-foot hull section that would add four additional payload tubes, boosting strike capacity by 230 percent and preserving the United States’ critical undersea capabilities. This business group is performing development work for the replacement of the Navy’s Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine fleet, which would reach the end of its service life starting in 2027. These Ohio-class replacement submarines would provide strategic deterrent capabilities. The lead ship is slated to start construction in 2021, with delivery to the Navy in 2027. The company is preparing its workforce and facilities for the start of construction for the Ohio-class replacement program. This includes a new 113,000-square-foot automated frame and cylinder facility that the company builds in Quonset Point, Rhode Island, to support the Common Missile Compartment work under joint development for the U.S. Navy and the U.K. Royal Navy. The company is the major designer and builder of DDG-51 destroyers, managing the design, modernization and lifecycle support of these ships. These multi-mission ships provide offensive and defensive capabilities, and are capable of simultaneously fighting air, surface and subsurface battles. They could operate independently or as part of carrier strike groups, surface act
