Andy Green, president of Huntington Ingalls Industries' technical solutions segment and a 2020 Wash100 awardee, said a new center of excellence will help increase HII's manufacturing capacity to handle future programs focused on unmanned underwater vehicles, Inside Defense reported Tuesday.

HII held a groundbreaking ceremony on Sept. 22, in Hampton, Virginia, for its 157K-square-foot unmanned center of excellence.

Green told the publication in an interview that the facility will help "support virtually any program in unmanned going forward“ and will "be designed from beginning to end to build and support the construction and integration of larger UUVs.“

He also discussed how the company's work on the U.S. Navy's Orca extra-large UUVs as part of Boeing's team has driven HII to come up with a center of excellence for UUVs to improve affordability for future buys.
