The first US Navy submarine launched in 1861. Over 600 more Navy subs have launched since, with another 60 planned over the next couple of decades.
Submarine use is not limited to the Navy, though. There are also submarines in use for research, the offshore marine industry, commercial ventures, and some privately owned.
These submarines will eventually need repair for hull and propulsion corrosion or damage regardless of their purpose.
Submarine repair backlogs have cost billions of dollars and years of lost sailing time. A lack of shipyard space exacerbates the issue. Most private shipyards set up for construction lack maintenance facilities and procedures, especially for submarines.
Typical submarine repair and maintenance can take up to two years to complete. Delays in that schedule result in the submarine needing to repeat dive qualifications after being out of service for these extended periods.
