Five Connecticut companies secured more than $140 million in military contracts over the past week, according to information from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

General Dynamic Electric Boat Corp. in Groton had the biggest deal of the week, winning a $96.4 million contract modification from the Navy on Jan. 22. The new deal is for long lead time material associated with Electric Boat’s Virginia Class submarines SSN 812 and SSN 813. Most of the work for the contract, which is expected to be completed in 2033, will be done at various sites across the United States.

More than $40 million in other military awards were also issued locally over the past week.

  • On Jan. 23, Lockheed Martin Corp. Rotary Mission System in Stratford was awarded a $24.4 million contract modification from the Air Force for contractor support for aircraft-related work. That contract is expected to end in December.
  • On Jan. 19, the Navy awarded Windsor Locks-based Hamilton Sundstrand a $19.3 million contract to repair the T-64 fuel control main turbine in the Netherlands. Work is expected to be completed in 2026.
  • On Jan. 23, McLaughlin Research Corp. in New London and Sonalysts Inc. in Waterford were among 15 companies awarded $2,500 each from the Navy for “Undersea Weapons Undersea Defensive Family of Systems” development. More than $245 million is being doled out for the effort, according to documents from the DoD. The funding will go toward research, development, and test and evaluation efforts for undersea weapons. Work is expected to be completed in 2029.
