General Dynamics wins $2 billion Army contract

General Dynamics Corp. won the Army's 10-year, $2 billion Common Hardware/Software III contract.

Under CHS-3, the company's C4 Systems business unit, part of General Dynamics' information systems and technology group, will provide Army, Marine Corps and Air Force tactical computer users with next-generation commercial and ruggedized workstations, plus associated hardware and software.

All other federal agencies are also eligible to purchase computer products and services under the contract.

General Dynamics C4 Systems is the incumbent contractor for the Army's CHS-2 contract, and is in the ninth year of that program. The total value of the CHS-2 contract, first awarded in 1995, now stands at $888 million, the company said.

General Dynamics, based in Falls Church, Va., is teaming with Sun Microsystems Inc., Santa Clara, Calif., Cisco Systems Inc., San Jose, Calif., and DRS Technologies Inc., Parsippany, N.Y.

At the time the contract award was announced, General Dynamics also received an initial $8.3 million delivery order which finances the packaging and qualification of new products to be offered.

General Dynamics employs approximately 57,000 people worldwide and had 2002 revenue of $13.8 billion.
