The company said Monday it tested Audacious‘ systems while under water for two days at Devonshire Dock in Barrow-in-Furness, England.

Royal Navy Capt. Scott Bower, commanding officer of Audacious, along with the submarine’s crew worked with BAE personnel to conduct the test.

The 8,157-ton submarine is scheduled to leave the company’s Barrow facility later this year to undergo sea trials.

BAE also constructed the Astute-class HMS Astute, HMS Artful and HMS Ambush submarines currently in service with the British navy.

Three more submarines of the same class are under construction at the Barrow facility.
