BAE Systems Submarine Solutions


BAE Systems Submarine Solutions

BAE Systems Submarine Solutions, until 2003 a unit within BAE Systems Marine, is responsible for the development and production of the Astute class submarine. At the same time BAE Systems Naval Ships was formed to operate the shipbuilding capabilities of BAE Systems.

The submarines are constructed at BAE Systems' yard at Barrow-in-Furness. The Astute class is a new generation of nuclear attack submarine (SSN) for the Royal Navy. The order for the initial batch of three ships was place in 1997, with Marconi Marine (VSEL), since absorbed into BAE Systems.
