Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding (NGSB) is the shipbuilding sector of the Northrop Grumman Corporation. The sector or division was created on 28 January 2008 by the merger of Northrop Grumman's two shipbuilding sectors, Northrop Grumman Ship Systems and Northrop Grumman Newport News.[1]

Mike Petters is currently the President of the entire shipbuilding sector (formerly president of the Newport News shipyard).[1]

NGSB is the sole designer, builder, and refueler of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in the United States. It is one of two nuclear-powered submarine builders. 70% of the current, active US Navy fleet has been built by NGSB's erstwhile units.
