Electric Boat still expects shipbuilding from agreement with UK, Australia | news


September marked the one-year anniversary of a defense agreement between Australia, the US and the UK that could bolster the shipbuilding industry in the region.

Two weeks ago, “We had a delegation over here from Australia that we were meeting with, and the first question from their side to our side was directed at me: ‘So, how’s Groton?’” Rep. Joe Courtney said.

The Australia-United Kingdom-United States trilateral security agreement, announced in September of 2021, seeks to build a nuclear-powered submarine program in Australia, and is meant to foster cooperation between the nations on other areas of defense, such as artificial intelligence, other undersea technologies like drones, and cyber.
