Carrier Spending by State

The map below depicts the national vendor base for aircraft carriers. The spending numbers include purchase orders issued by Newport News Shipbuilding and contracts from the U.S. Navy directly awarded to companies over the past five years. More than 2,000 vendors with contracts worth more than $4.1 billion support local economies in 279 congressional districts nationwide. As the map demonstrates, stability in aircraft carrier programs is critical not only to our national security but to our shipbuilding industrial base as well.
