General Dynamics Electric Boat is being awarded a $115 million modification to a previously awarded contract for additional lead-yard services, development studies and design efforts related to Virginia-class submarines. 

This modification provides lead-yard services for Virginia-class submarines that will maintain, update and support the Virginia-class design and related drawings and data for each Virginia-class submarine, including technology insertion throughout its construction and post-shakedown availability period, US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

The contractor will also provide all engineering and related lead-yard services necessary for direct maintenance and support of Virginia-class ship specifications.

In addition, this contract modification provides development studies and design efforts related to the Virginia-class submarine design and design improvements, preliminary and detail component and system design, integration of system engineering, design engineering, test engineering, logistics engineering and production engineering.

The contractor will continue development studies and design efforts related to components and systems to accomplish research and development tasks and prototypes and engineering development models required to fully evaluate new technologies to be inserted in succeeding Virginia-class submarines. 

Work is expected to be completed by October 2017.
