This Specialized Disclosure Report (Form SD) for Huntington Ingalls
Industries, Inc. (“HII” or the “Company”) is provided in accordance
with Rule 13p-1 under the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Rule”) for the reporting
period from January 1 to December 31, 2022.
Conflict Minerals are defined by the Securities and Exchange
Commission (“SEC”) as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, wolframite
and gold, and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum
and tungsten (referred to as “3TGs”). The Rule requires an SEC
registrant to determine if its products contain 3TGs and whether
their origin is any of the “Covered Countries,” which include the
Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of the Congo, the
Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi,
Tanzania, Zambia and Angola.
HII conducted a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) to
determine the origin of 3TGs identified in its supply chain. Due to
the unavailability of details and information through the supply
chain back to smelters, HII is not able to determine the origin of
all 3TGs in its products covered by this reporting period.

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
Details regarding HII’s RCOI can be found in HII’s Conflict
Minerals Report provided as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and publicly

Any references to the HII website in this Form SD and the Conflict

incorporated by reference into, and are not otherwise a part of,
this Form SD or the Conflict Minerals Report.
Certain statements in this Form SD and the Conflict Minerals Report
filed as Exhibit 1.01 constitute “forward-looking statements”
within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act
of 1995. Forward-looking statements include any statement that is
not based on historical fact, including statements containing the
words “believes,” “may,” “plans,” “will,” “could,” “should,”
“estimates,” “continues,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “expects” and
similar expressions. The Company intends that such forward-looking
statements be subject to the safe harbors created thereby. These
forward-looking statements are based on current expectations
concerning the Company’s future actions to engage contract
manufacturers, to identify to the extent possible the source of
3TGs in its products and to take other actions regarding its
product sourcing. The Company’s actual actions or results may
differ materially from those expected or anticipated in the
forward-looking statements due to both known and unknown risks and
uncertainties including, but not limited to, decisions to make
changes in the Company’s ongoing improvement efforts and delays or
difficulties in engaging contract manufacturers and identifying the
sources of 3TGs contained in the Company’s products. HII assumes no
obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements for
any reason, except as required by law.
