Babcock Wins Further CMC/MTA Work for Strategic Submarines

Support for UK and US Submarine Deterrent Programmes

Babcock has been awarded a multimillion-pound contract extension by General Dynamics Electric Boat (GDEB) to manufacture a further 18 tactical Missile Tube Assembles (MTA) for the Common Missile Compartment (CMC) programme.

Supporting over 200 highly specialised jobs at Babcock’s Rosyth and Bristol facilities until at least 2026, the work reinforces the company’s position as a critical supplier of MTA, supporting future deterrent submarine capabilities for both the Royal and the US Navies.

This is a prime example of the capability of our defence industry to deliver specialised and complex manufacturing in support of an internationally significant programme […] building next-generation technology for our vital nuclear deterrent,” commented British Minister for Defence Equipment, Support & Technology, Jeremy Quin.

Since 2014, Babcock has successfully secured competitive contracts with GDEB to manufacture 57 MTA, the latest of these including an option to supply an additional 18 MTAs, resulting in this contract extension. This brings the total number manufactured by Babcock to 75 and will see the company’s work transition from the DREADNOUGHT to the COLUMBIA programme.
