General Dynamics has won a $36.5 million contract modification to develop advanced submarine technologies for current and future undersea platforms for the Navy.
The contract was initially awarded in 2010, with a potential value of $710.6 million over five years if all options are exercised, General Dynamics said in a release.
Under the contract, General Dynamics will conduct submarine research and development studies to support technology areas including manufacturability, maintainability, survivability, hydrodynamics, acoustics and materials, the company said.
The contract also supports near-term Virginia-class technology insertion, future submarine concepts and core technologies.
Work will be performed in Gorton, Conn., and expected to be completed by October 2015.
