The Ocean State
Published September 12, 2012 in Innovation Stories
Rhode Island is known as the Ocean State and we are proud of our maritime tradition. We are home to The Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC), the Navy's premier R&D Center for submarine and undersea warfare systems, the U.S. Naval War College, highly skilled manufacturing companies such as Electric Boat and Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, and a growing industrial cluster for the yacht-building and -servicing industry.
