Meet American Shipbuilding
For 127 years, Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) has carried on the legacy of American shipbuilding, building some of the most famous ships in American naval history with a diverse workforce of craftsmen and engineers. We proudly build U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and submarines, and provide after market services for both. In 2011, we became a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries after being a part of Northrop Grumman since 2001.

Minnesota Delivered on Budget and Ahead of Schedule
On June 6, Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) delivered the submarine Minnesota (SSN 783) to the U.S. Navy. The last of the Block II Virginia-class submarines, Minnesota was delivered on budget and nearly 11 months ahead of schedule. NNS is teamed with General Dynamics Electric Boat to build Virginia-class submarines, which use advanced technologies to increase firepower, maneuverability and stealth. The 377-foot long submarines are capable of submerged speeds of more than 25 knots and can stay submerged for up to three months at a time.
