The Kings Bay Naval Submarine base is the East Coast homeport for the Ohio-class fleet ballistic missile and guided missile submarines and the only naval base in the Atlantic Fleet capable of supporting the Trident II Missile. A massive nine-year, $1.3 billion construction project initiated in 1981 included construction of facilities to support a squadron of Trident submarines; facilities were built for submarine maintenance and repair, crew training, weapons handling and storage and personnel suport.

The highly secure facility encompasses approximately 16,000 acres, 4,000 of which are protected wetlands. More than 9,000 military and civilian personnel including contract personnel, make up the installation's workforce.
