General Dynamics Corp. will provide cyber security and other services to the Army under a five-year contract that has a potential value of $64.5 million if all options are exercised, according to the April 12 company announcement.

General Dynamics will carry out administrative, information assurance, cyber security and operations functions for the 160th Signal Brigade, as well as provide power and facilities engineering, logistics services and IT networking and transmission expertise.

Included in the work – which will be performed in Kuwait, Qatar and Afghanistan – will be providing theater-level communications for the U.S. Central Command.

General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
