Team Submarines

Mission Statement

Keeping America's Navy #1 in the world by developing, acquiring, modernizing, and maintaining the world's best Submarines and Undersea Systems.

Team Submarine

Team Submarine is a combination of the Program Executive Officer, Submarines (PEO SUB), the Deputy Commander, Undersea Warfare (NAVSEA 07) and the Undersea Technology Officer (NAVSEA 073). The Team Submarine concept unifies once diverse submarine-related activities into a single submarine-centric organization with the goal of eliminating traditional stovepipe structures and processes that created impediments and inefficiencies in the submarine research, development, acquisition, and maintenance communities. Team Submarine provides improved communication among the various offices that contribute to the overall success of the United States Submarine Force.
