SSP has over 50-years of history providing credible sea-based deterrent missile systems. Our deterrent systems have been and remain a key factor in preventing nuclear war, and they helped our Nation win the Cold War.  We still have this vital deterrent mission.  However, delivery of high-quality and well supported systems to the fleet on time and within budget is no longer sufficient.  In the current environment and in the foreseeable future, it is necessary to better this performance to achieve more with greater efficiency and to free resources to address emergent needs.

Our missile systems continue to provide both nuclear and conventional deterrence to national threats from abroad in today’s political environment.

SSP Mission Statement

“Provide credible and affordable strategic solutions to the Warfighter”.

Seek Additional Assistance as Needed in the Navy and DOD Marketplace
