Navy Ohio Replacement (SWSBN[X]) Ballistic Missile Submarine Program: Background and Issues for Congress
Ronald O劌舞ourke (au)
The Navy劌製 proposed FY2013 budget requests $564.9 million for continued R&D work on the Ohio replacement program (ORP), a program to design and build a new class of 12 ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) to replace the Navy劌製 current force of 14 Ohio-class SSBNs. The Ohio replacement program is also known as the SSBN(X) program. Under the Navy劌製 FY2012 budget, the first Ohio replacement boat was scheduled to be procured in FY2019, and Ohio replacement boats were to enter service on a schedule that would maintain the Navy劌製 SSBN force at 12 boats. The Navy劌製 proposed FY2013 budget defers the procurement of the first Ohio replacement boat by two years, to FY2021. As a result, the Navy劌製 SSBN force will drop to 10 boats during most of the 2030s. The Navy estimates the average procurement cost of boats 2 through 12 in the Ohio replacement program at $5.6 billion each in FY2010 dollars, and is working to reduce that figure to a target of $4.9 billion each in FY2010 dollars. Even with this cost-reduction effort, observers are concerned about the impact the Ohio replacement program will have on the Navy劌製 ability to procure other types of ships at desired rates in the 2020s and early 2030s.This report focuses on the Ohio replacement program as a Navy shipbuilding program.
