Southeastern New England ~The Silicon Valley of Undersea Warfare

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel’s Remarks at Defense Innovation Days

“Today, southeastern New England has become the Silicon Valley of undersea warfare. It’s not only that our submarines are built here. It’s that their critical underlying technology, capabilities, and future operational concepts are developed here as well. The close proximity and strong links between academia at the Naval War College, R&D at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, and industry at regional businesses both large and small suppliers, design teams, engineers, manufacturers all have created an innovation ecosystem that’s vital to supporting our national defense enterprise.”
