General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) Electric Boat subsidiary has secured a $532.9 million contract modification to continue design, development research and lead yard support services associated with the U.S. Navy’s Virginia-class attack submarines.
Contract work will occur at Electric Boat’s facilities in Groton, Connecticut, and Newport News, Virginia, through October 2023, the company said Thursday.
The modification has options that could bring the award’s cumulative value to $813.7 million, according to a Department of Defense notice posted Monday.
The company initially secured a $434.4 million contract in 2019 to help maintain and update submarine designs and associated data.
