General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems has won two contracts totaling $226.7 million to continue modernizing and repairing the training and support equipment for the U.S. and U.K. ballistic missile submarine and SSGN fleets.
Work will help the Navy address obsolescence, reduce overall submarine lifecycle costs and enhance operational capabilities.
“By capitalizing on our in-depth experience, existing resources and open architecture framework, we are helping the Navy reduce risk for future payloads and maximize commonality between the SSBN, SSGN and SSBN-R weapons control systems,” said Mike Eagan, vice president and general manager of Critical Mission Systems for the business group.
Work will take place in Pittsfield, Mass.
