General Dynamics steams ahead with Navy sealift deal

Contractor to help modernize engines and auxilliary systems for Navy ships

General Dynamics Information Technology will help modernize systems on the Navy’s Military Sealift Command vessels under a five-year contract potentially worth $47 million.

General Dynamics IT will furnish engineering support for the modernization of the main engines and auxiliary systems on the vessels through the Naval Surface Warfare Center, company officials said in a statement released today.

The contractor will perform the work at several locations, including Bremerton, Wash.; San Diego; Philadelphia; Norfolk, Va.; Honolulu; Gaeta, Italy; Yokosuka, Japan; and Guam.

The Military Sealift Command’s mission is to deliver supplies and conduct operations around the world.

General Dynamics IT is a unit of General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va. The parent company ranks No. 4 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
