Shipbuilders Council of America strongly supports the maintenance and modernization of our Navy and Coast Guard Fleets. We work with both the Congress and the Departments to get what our Sailors and Coast Guardsmen need to ensure an acceptable material condition of the ships they sail around the world. SCA also strongly supports modernization programs that keep our ships ready to meet current and future threats. SCA actively participates in many forum and venues, particularly with the Navy, to work on issues of common interest between industry and the services. SCA strives to be a resource to its members, the Congress and the services. This page provides access to information focused on Navy surface ship maintenance and modernization.
