Company will deliver missioncomputers under a $19.3M contract

General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems has won a $19.3 million contract with the U.S. Navy to provide the F/A-18 aircraft with advanced mission computers.

The company has been delivering these types of computers since 2002.

These Type 3 advanced mission computers will be used on the F/A-18E/F and E/A-18G Super Hornet aircraft, General Dynamics said.

The computer systems provide situational awareness and combat systems control to the flight crew and process high-speed data flows from the latest sensor technology.
