OHIO Replacement Program System Description

Mission: Strategic deterrence Description: Develop submarine to replace existing OHIO Class SSBNs as they reach the end of their service lives. A portion of effort develops a Common Missile Compartment (CMC) that will be used by both the U.S. and UK for their replacement SSBNs. Employment: Strategic deterrent patrols

Pulse of the Program
Right Schedule
“The schedule for the Ohio-class replacement, including the design and transition to construction, is very aggressive. There’s a lot of parts that have to move together to make that happen on time.”

Right Funding
“My top priority is the SSBN(X) and the strategic nuclear deterrent…I will fund that above all else…”
ADM Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations 18 Sep 2013

Right UK Support
“…today we are on schedule in terms of both the OHIO Replacement Program schedule and supporting the [UK’s] SUCCESSOR.”
The Honorable Sean Stackley, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition 26 Mar 2014

Continued Affordability Efforts
“The Navy is taking the necessary steps to ensure the OHIO Replacement SSBN is designed, built, delivered, and tested on time with the right capabilities at an affordable cost.”
VADM Terry Benedict, Director, Strategic Systems Programs 5 Mar 2014

ADM John Richardson, Director Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program 27 Mar 2014

"The program has to stay on track. We have no slack in this program.“

“As long as these [nuclear] weapons exist, the United States will maintain a safe, secure, and effective arsenal to deter any adversary, and guarantee that defense to our allies…”
“…there's a 15-year period where it [the OHIO Replacement] will be the largest part of our shipbuilding program…[this] puts extraordinary pressure on our shipbuilding program.”
ADM Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations 27 Mar 2014 The Honorable Sean Stackley, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition 26 Mar 2014

“We are exactly on track now in terms of the early engineering, the research and development that need to happen...”
The Honorable Ray Mabus, Secretary of the U.S. Navy 27 Mar 2014

“The one thing that we can control today is obviously trying to keep the cost down by making sure that the defense -- the design and -- and engineering budget request for Ohio replacement is protected.”
U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, (D-CT) HASC 12 Sep 2013

“…the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Navy should make every effort to ensure that the common missile compartment associated with the OHIO-Class ballistic missile submarine replacement program stays on schedule and is aligned with the Vanguard-successor program …in order for the United States to fulfill its longstanding commitment to our ally and partner in seabased strategic deterrence.”

“We are able to protect research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) funding to the Ohio Replacement Programour top priority program-on track.”
ADM Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations 12 Sep 2013

Sense of Congress from the U.S. House of Representatives 14 Jun 2013

“Our national security rests on our ability to deliver this boat on time and within budget.”
U.S. Rep. J. Randy Forbes, (R-VA) HASC 12 Sep 2013

“Even in a time of declining resources, it's crucial that our nation continue to retain our strategic advantage in undersea warfare.”
U.S. Rep. J. Randy Forbes, (R-VA) HASC 12 Sep 2013

“The U.S. and the U.K. have maintained a shared commitment to nuclear deterrence.” “Our programs are tightly coupled both programmatically and technically to ensure we are providing the most cost effective, technically capable nuclear deterrent for both nations.”

President Obama Apr 2010

“We are leading the charge in affordability. We are at the forefront of implementing Secretary Kendall's [Better Buying Power] efforts.”
RADM David Johnson, Program Executive Officer for Submarines 12 Sep 2013

OHIO Replacement SSBN Attributes

In an Affordable Package…
 Lead ship construction must commence in 2021  First Strategic Patrol in 2031  Maintains fleet of 10 operational SSBNs through transition to OHIO Replacement  Procurement timeline meets USSTRATCOM requirements with moderate operational risk during transition period – no additional room for delay  Low margin for unforeseen SSBN maintenance issues or late OHIO Replacement delivery  12 OHIO Replacement SSBNs needed to meet long term requirements during OHIO Replacement mid-life overhaul period
Sea, Air, and Space Symposium 8 April 2014 Number of Operation SSBNs

SSBN Force Structure

Transition Period

30YR Class Extended to 42YRS – Cannot extend further

At Responsible Cost.

Executing the Sea-Based Strategic Deterrence Mission: “A Lean, Optimized Force”
Historical SBSD Force Structure

Planned recapitalization extended 20 years “There is no more margin”
Achieving Key Performance Parameters is the key to success of this optimized force
Survivability – Stealth is critical to maintaining an assured response Material and Operational availability – 12 OHIO Replacements must deliver the same availability as 14 OHIOs Strategic Weapons System – Must achieve OHIO (D5) demonstrated performance

Other Performance Parameters that drive program efforts
Training – Utilize existing facilities and onboard trainers Net Ready – Supports military operations and effectively exchanges information Cost – Aggressive push to achieve Milestone A cost goals Schedule – First hull must be on deployment in 2031 to meet STRATCOM requirements Space/Weight/Power/Cooling – Must support future tech insertions
