Full Service Support Operations

One of our most important jobs as a Navy Shipbuilder is to keep our customer's ships at sea longer and at less cost. Our Surface Ship Support Center is the hub of our life cycle support activities. The key to its success is a talented pool of BIW men and women who learned their skills while working for the DDG, LCS and FFG planning yards, in new construction, during Post Shakedown Availabilities, or performing engineering work for Fleet Services.


As well as the core personnel at SSSC in Brunswick, ME, we have offices in major Navy homeports:

    Norfolk VA
    Mayport FL
    Pascagoula MS
    San Diego CA
    Everett WA
    Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
    Yokosuka, Japan
    Rota, Spain

You can find details on how to contact those offices in our Contact Information Section.
Here are some basic sub-categories of life cycle support we offer:

    Configuration Management
    Data Management
    Fleet Services
    Integrated Logistics Support
    Life Cycle Engineering and Design
    Operation Cycle Management
    Material Procurement Management 


We've been in this business for over a century, and we know that many spare part requirements are time critical. We're determined that you'll get the correct item at the right price, and in a timely manner. We will ensure that parts and equipment supplied to you meet all the spec design and material requirements, and that they're QA-inspected prior to shipment.

We stock over 50,000 separate parts, and we source 75,000 other items for specific shipboard construction and support requirements. Over 12,000 conform to National Stock Numbers. In addition to durable goods, BIW provides technical service worldwide for the Fleet's scheduled or emergency needs.
