Abstract : This thesis research focused on the evaluation of the shipyard industrial base as it relates to the requirements of the U. S. Navy. It characterizes shipyard capabilities, investigates legislative initiatives, evaluates subsidy programs and interprets Navy requirements and the status of business conducted at the U.S. shipyards. It looks at whether the Navy should let the competitive market dictate where and which shipyards will survive, or should policy/legislation be enacted to support a few strategically located shipyards.
