    ARLINGTON, Va. — The Navy plans to use a future Virginia-class attack submarine as a guinea pig for new acoustic-quieting technology that could be standardized on later boats of the class and on future classes.

    The future USS South Dakota (SSN 790), a Block III Virginia-class SSN now under construction at General Dynamics’ Electric Boat shipyard in Groton, Conn., and Huntington Ingalls’ Newport News Shipbuilding in Newport News, Va., has been selected by the Navy to incorporate some new acoustic quieting features.South Dakota is scheduled for delivery to the Navy in 2018.
