Several recent trends have warranted concern about the future vitality of the United Kingdom?s submarine industrial base. Force structure reductions and budget constraints have led to long intervals between design efforts for new classes and low production rates. Demands for new submarines have not considered industrial base efficiencies resulting in periods of feast or famine for the organisations that support submarine construction. Government policies have resulted in a reduction in the submarine design and management resources within the Ministry of Defence (MOD) in an effort to reduce costs. Yet, the aforementioned production inefficiencies and increased nuclear oversight have resulted in greater costs.Concerns about the future health of the submarine industrial base led to the MOD asking RAND Europe to examining the following four issues:? What actions should be taken to maintain nuclear submarine design capabilities?? How should nuclear submarine production be scheduled for efficient use of the industrial base?? What MOD capabilities are required to effectively manage and support nuclear submarine programmes?? Where should nuclear fuelling occur to minimise cost and schedule risks?
