SSP oversees the Strategic Weapons System and Attack Weapons System on board current U.S. Ohio and UK Vanguard class submarines, as well as on future Ohio replacement and the UK Dreadnought class of submarines.

BAE Systems experts will, under the contract, continue to support weapons systems integration and provide test engineering services and special test equipment for SSP. The team will also provide IT support, develop fleet documentation materials, assist with training programs, conduct facility maintenance monitoring, and offer nuclear and conventional weapons safety support
