General Dynamics
: 16 February, 2009  (New Product)
The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems a contract for research, development and operation of Information Fusion (IF) as it relates to the Information Fusion Center established by the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division to support U.S. Navy, Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security operations.
The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract, to be managed by the Information Fusion Center at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division in China Lake, Calif., has a maximum potential value to General Dynamics of $95.2 million. The company will have the opportunity to bid on each individual task order. General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics.

Information Fusion is the process of correlating data from multiple sources to derive information of enhanced value to users. Efforts under this contract will include research and development, integration and testing, continual advancement and operation of the Information Fusion Center; training for newly developed software, hardware and other products; and independent verification and validation of sensors and systems relating to critical infrastructure protection and force protection. Work will be performed at facilities in Santa Clara and China Lake, Calif.

'General Dynamics and its teammates have developed and fielded information fusion technologies for more than 25 years,' said Lou Von Thaer, president of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. 'From day one, we will leverage this experience to deliver operationally proven information fusion systems enabling greater situational awareness, threat assessments and
resource management.'

General Dynamics will leverage its Quarterback Information Fusion capability and team members' fusion expertise for each task. Quarterback is an IF system with a service-oriented architecture designed for the 'plug-n-play' addition of fusion services. It currently provides the foundation for the Story Maker system, which provides the Navy with the necessary architecture to ensure multi-service/multi-platform utility, interoperability and timely dissemination of fused intelligence information to operational forces.
