General Dynamics American Overseas Marine (AMSEA)
: 19 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Army contract has been extended to enable General Dynamics American Overseas Marine to continue operating 7 roll-on/roll-off vessels for the marine transportation of military tanks and equipment
General Dynamics American Overseas Marine (AMSEA) has been awarded a $27.2 million operations and maintenance services contract by the US Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC).

Through this contract, General Dynamics will provide full-service operations
and maintenance for seven Navy Large, Medium-Speed, Roll-On/Roll-Off (LMSR) vessels. Services will include crewing, engineering, maintenance,
procurement and provisioning.

'AMSEA has successfully operated the vessels in this program for the last five years and looks forward to continuing our superior service for our customer under this new contract,' said Captain Thomas Merrell, president of General Dynamics, American Overseas Marine.

MSC's LMSR program significantly enhances the US sealift capability for the new millennium. LMSRs have been the primary movers of US military equipment during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Each LMSR can carry an entire US Army Task Force, including 58 Tanks and 48 other tracked vehicles, as well as more than 900 trucks and other wheeled vehicles. The LMSRs are each crewed by approximately 30 civilian mariners.

As a full service ship operator for more than 25 years, General Dynamics, American Overseas Marine provides complete marine operations, engineering and professional services to customers in the government and commercial sectors. The company is part of the Marine Systems group of General Dynamics
