Navy taps GD for submarine system modification

General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems Inc. has won a $34.7 million contract modification from the Navy for the continued development of the submarine tactical control system, the company announced.

Under the modification, the unit of General Dynamics Corp., Falls Church, Va., will provide systems engineering, architecture design, software engineering, prototype development, integration, development and testing. The work is scheduled for completion by December 2004.

The award modifies a contract won in December 2002 to Digital Systems Resources Inc., which was subsequently acquired by General Dynamics and became part of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems of Arlington, Va., in September. The modification raises the total value of the contract to $44 million.

The submarine tactical control system contract includes development and production, including improvements, upgrades, technology refreshment and integration for the next generation of the tactical control system.

The system provides contract management tools and tactical control functions as part of the Navy's Mk2 Combat Control System aboard submarines.

The company, which was ranked No. 7 on Washington Technology's 2003 Top 100 list, has about 66,900 employees and annual sales of $16.1 billion.
