About the Submarine Delivery Agency
At DE&S, we work alongside – and manage the recruitment for – the Submarine Delivery Agency (SDA). And just like DE&S, the SDA is a part of the Ministry of Defence.
In partnership with the Royal Navy, the Defence Nuclear Organisation, and industry, the SDA:
- procure submarines
- manage the support that keeps them at sea
- will safely dispose of them when they’ve served their purpose
Delivering some of the world’s most advanced and technically complex equipment, this work is vital to providing the ultimate guarantee of our national security – with submarines on patrol every minute of every day. The SDA’s vision is to lead a high-performing industrial enterprise to deliver submarine capability safely, securely, and more effectively and cost efficiently each year.
