The U.S. Navy has awarded BAE Systems a three-year, $171 million contract to continue providing engineering and integration support to its Fleet Ballistic Missile Program. Specifically, the work will focus on the Navy’s Trident II D-5 submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
The company has supported the Navy’s Trident D-5 program for more than 50 years, including during the evolution of the program through the Polaris, Poseidon, and Trident lifecycles. The current design and development of the U.S./U.K. Common Missile Compartment is part of the Ohio Class Submarine replacement program.
