: 21 October, 2008  (Company News)
A muliti million dollar contract has been won by General Dynamics to supply engineering, IT and other services to the Naval Sea Systems Command in Philadelphia.
Under the contracts, General Dynamics will provide information technology (IT) engineering and professional services for the Smart Carrier program and
additional NSWCCD initiatives. NAVSEA established the Smart Carrier program to harness new technologies and processes to reduce sailor workload and operational costs, and improve quality of life on Navy aircraft carriers.

General Dynamics is working with NSWCCD to support Smart Carrier modernization
operations that include testing and installation of new machinery control monitoring systems (MCMS) including Distributed Data and Control Networks (DDCN) and Navigation and Ship Control Systems (NCDS).

General Dynamics is also providing additional NSWCCD operations with engineering, system analysis and program support for navigation and integrated bridge control systems that include antenna, sail, radar, microwave and electrical systems.

'The Naval Surface Warfare Center's Carderock Division has been at the forefront of technologies vital to the success of the U.S. Navy and maritime industry for more than a century,' said Ken Slaght, vice president and general manager of Maritime Systems for General Dynamics Information Technology. 'General Dynamics is committed to supporting maritime technology innovation to extend the U.S. Navy's capabilities and its maritime superiority.'

NSWCCD is the Navy's leading maritime technology authority and oversees full life-cycle support for maritime technologies. NSWCCD's Ship Systems Engineering Station (SSES), based in Philadelphia, is the Navy's principal Test and Evaluation Station and In-Service Engineering Agent for hull, mechanical and electrical (HM&E) ship systems and equipment. SSES engineers and tests shipboard systems and equipment that span full-scale propulsion systems to digital controls and electric power systems.
