General Dynamics wins Navy sub software control contract

Award is worth $10.2 million in first year

General Dynamics Corp. will provide new control software for the Navy’s submarines under a first-year contract valued at $10.2 million.

The multi-year award calls for General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, a unit of General Dynamics, to develop weapon control software and commercial off-the-shelf hardware upgrades for the AN/BYG-1 combat system on several classes of submarines.

The AN/BYG-1 integrates the tactical control, weapons control and tactical network subsystems on U.S. Navy and Royal Australian Navy submarines, company officials said.

The AN/BYG-1 combat system comprises tactical control, weapons control, and tactical network subsystems for SSGN-class, Los Angeles-class and Seawolf-class submarines. Each of them incorporates a variety of advanced software algorithms developed by a host of industry, government and academia sources, according to the Web site.

The majority of work under this contract will be performed in Pittsfield, Mass., Fairfax, Va. and Middletown, R.I.

Company officials did not report a maximum value of the contract, which was awarded after a full and open competition. If all options are exercised, work under this contract will be completed by December 2018.

General Dynamics, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 4 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
