Abstract:

The Navys proposed FY2017 budget requests 773.1 million in advance procurement AP funding and 1,091.1 million in research and development funding for the Ohio replacement program ORP, a program to design and build a new class of 12 ballistic missile submarines SSBNs to replace the Navys current force of 14 Ohio-class SSBNs. The Navy has identified the Ohio replacement program, also known as the SSBNX program, as the Navys top priority program. The Navy wants to procure the first Ohio replacement boat in FY2021, and the 773.1 million in AP funding requested for FY2017 represents the initial procurement funding for that boat.
