General Dynamics
: 11 December, 2007  (New Product)
General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded a contract by the Department of Defense (DoD) National Security Education Program (NSEP) to develop a national volunteer civilian 'Language Corps' whose members will be available for federal activation during times of international crisis, national emergency or to fulfill other national needs. The contract was awarded through the GSA's MOBIS vehicle and has a potential value of $19 million over three years if all options are exercised.
Under the contract, General Dynamics will develop, implement and test a pilot Language Corps of certified experts in languages deemed important to the security and well-being of the nation. The company will create a continuously operated Language Training and Communications Center, recruit pilot and charter Language Corps members, provide personnel support and run activation exercises.

'The Language Corps will offer language professionals an opportunity to provide a vital service to the nation in times of emergency,' said Dennis England, vice president and general manager of Aviation/Joint Solutions for General Dynamics Information Technology. 'General Dynamics is dedicated to the development and success of this significant national security program.'

The Language Corps Pilot concept is identified as a vital component of the President's National Security Language Initiative, announced in January 2006.
