General Dynamics gets engineering support deal

General Dynamics Corp. won a contract potentially worth $4.7 billion over 15 years from the Defense Microelectronics Activity for engineering services under the Advanced Technology Support Program III, the company said today.

The Defense Microelectronics Activity specializes in strategic microelectronic solutions for the Defense Department.

The Advanced Technology Support Program III is designed to resolve problems with obsolete, unreliable, unmaintainable or underperforming electronics hardware and software by developing advanced technologies that can be inserted into systems already in use. The insertions help lengthen the useful life of equipment in the field.

Under the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems of Arlington, Va., will perform engineering activities ranging from technical studies and analysis to prototype development and limited production.

General Dynamics has done similar work for the Defense Microelectronics Activity under three previous contracts.

Based in Falls Church, Va., General Dynamics provides mission-critical information systems and technologies, combat systems, armaments and munitions, shipbuilding and marine systems and business aviation to federal and commercial clients. It employs approximately 69,400 workers worldwide and had 2003 revenue of $16.6 billion. The company is No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list of government contractors.
