General Dynamics to develop new DOD WMD modeling software

General Dynamics' IT business unit has won a potential five-year, $45 million contract to build software for the U.S. military to model effects of incidents involving weapons of mass destruction or toxic materials.

The Army awarded the single-award-indefinite delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for the Joint Effects Model Increment 2 software. Northrop Grumman was the contractor for JEM Increment 1.

JEM is a web-based software application that works to simulate and measure effects of strikes or release incidents of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons or toxic industrial materials. The Defense Department uses JEM to model and predict time-phased impacts of events based on weather and terrain, among other areas.

General Dynamics will act as integrator, field system updates and perform systems engineering work for Increment 2.
