Whistleblower says Navy shipbuilders ignored nuclear submarine testing procedures for years

A whistleblower has accused America’s largest shipbuilder of ignoring the Navy’s testing and certification requirements, allegedly putting sailors’ lives at risk by degrading the stealth capabilities of U.S. nuclear submarines.

The whistleblower, an engineer named Ari Lawrence, held a senior role in Huntington Ingalls’ submarine division until October 2017. Lawrence has not requested anonymity and made his allegations in a publicly available complaint filed under the federal False Claims Act.

The complaint accuses his former employer of assigning unqualified individuals to install an important hull coating designed to shield the Navy’s Virginia-class nuclear submarines from sonar, and falsifying records to cover up their mistakes.
