Strategic Priorities

Historically, SSP's first and only line of business has been the development, production, and life cycle support of the Navy's Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) Strategic Weapons System (SWS). Through six FBM/SWS generations, SSP acquired specific skills and organizational values that support a capability to accomplish related efforts of importance to the Navy and the Nation. During the past several years, SSP has been able to leverage its expertise in program management and systems engineering into five additional lines of business. Collectively, these are referred to as the Six Lines of Business.

  • Strategic Weapons System (SWS) - Maintain and extend the life of the TRIDENT II SWS, the Nation’s primary strategic deterrent. View more information.
  • Nuclear Weapons Security (NWS) - Assure the security of nuclear weapons in US Navy custody. View more information.
  • SSGN Attack Weapons System (AWS) - Provide and support the AWS on converted Ohio class submarines that deploy Tomahawk missiles and other payloads. View more information.
  • Payload Integrator - Provide seamless end-to end integration of alternate payloads on submarines with large diameter tubes. View more information.
  • Emerging Missions - Provide rapid and cost effective expansion of submarine-based capabilities that fill validated joint warfighting gaps under the new Triad. View more information.
