General Dynamics awarded contract for Submarine Tactical Control System (TCS)

General Dynamics
: 10 August, 2009  (New Product)
The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems $21.3 million for the first-year of a multi-year contract to provide upgrades to the TCS portion of the AN/BYG-1 Submarine Combat System. This contract was awarded after a full and open competition.
General Dynamics will develop commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software and hardware upgrades to integrate improved tactical control capabilities for multiple submarine classes. TCS leads the implementation of the Navy's open architecture and open business model approach on submarines with a design that emphasizes shared standards that provide greater interoperability, portability, scalability and supplier independence. The General Dynamics offering is based on its open architecture and open business model approach.

'This program is one of several that demonstrate our open business model in action,' said Lou Von Thaer, president, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. 'This award allows General Dynamics to continue to provide increased tactical control capability at a lower cost, while encouraging third-party participation in developing affordable combat system enhancements across a number of naval platforms.'

Work under this contract will be performed in Fairfax, Va., and Middletown, R.I. If all options are exercised, work under this contract will be completed by July 2018.

This competitively awarded contract continues work that the company has been performing since December 2002.
