General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) business unit General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems said it was recently awarded two contracts valued at approximately USD226.7m by the US Navy´s Strategic Systems Programs office for continuing efforts to modernize and repair the training and support equipment for the US and United Kingdom ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) and SSGN fleets.
This work helps the Navy address obsolescence, reduce overall submarine lifecycle costs and enhance operational capabilities.
Since 2008, work on the repair contract has been carried out in Pittsfield, Mass., where the Navy´s SSP office and General Dynamics have an electronics repair facility. With the ability to diagnose, repair and recertify electronic equipment for critical and strategic systems, the state-of-the-art facility allows the Navy to realize cost savings by significantly reducing the amount of time it takes to repair equipment and return it to the fleet.
