GD to help Navy boost network interface system

General Dynamics Corp. will provide engineering and design agent services and integrated logistic services to the Navy under an initial $9.2 million contract that has a cumulative value of $28.8 million.

Under the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems will continue to support the Common Network Interface systems engineering effort under the Small Business Innovation Research program.

The CNI effort combines battle management systems into a single, integrated tactical picture to improve Expeditionary Strike Group commanders' situational awareness of the battlefield.

CNI provides composite tracking, identification, correlation, data link, gridlock, management reporting, system tracking and combat identification, among other features.

The company will perform the work in Fairfax, Va., and expect to complete it by July 2009. The Naval Sea Systems Command at the Washington Navy Yard is the contracting activity.

General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
