Abstract:

The General Dynamics Corporation, Electric Boat Division, is the designer and sole builder of the Trident class ballistic missile submarine and is one of two builders of the SSN-688 Los Angeles class attack submarine. As of December 1982, Electric Boat has delivered 2 Trident submarines and 13 SSN-688s to the Navy. Through the years both programs have experience delivery delays and construction problems. The situation at Electric Boat now, however, is more stable. With increased work force levels and productivity improvements which are underway, contractual delivery dates are achievable. Author
