General Dynamics to Build Prototype Unit for Navy’s Ohio Replacement Submarine

general-dynamics-logo2A General Dynamics subsidiary has received a $23.6 million contract modification to develop a prototype unit for the U.S. Navy's Ohio Replacement submarine.

General Dynamics Electric Boat will also design an air-conditioning unit and develop technical manuals for the new ballistic missile submarine under the modification, General Dynamics said Tuesday.
