The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
6 March 2020 -- The Dreadnought-class nuclear-armed submarines will start to enter service in the 2030s, replacing the Royal Navy’s four current Vanguard Class boats, armed with Trident nuclear missiles.
The fleet of nuclear deterrent submarines will be fitted with sonar systems and periscopes housing ground-breaking technology that will equip them with threat-detection technologies to protect the boat from aircraft or other naval vessels without the need to surface.
United Kingdom Defence Minister Jeremy Quin says the new technologies will provide "a stealth and detection advantage over adversaries."
