General Dynamics: USAF Extends IS Support Contract

General Dynamics : 01 December, 2006  (New Product)
U.S. Air Force Extends General Dynamics Contract for Integration Engineering Support
December 1, 2006

FAIRFAX, Va. - General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a $7.4 million contract to continue integration support of the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) for the U.S. Air Force.

General Dynamics is supporting the activation and integration of new DCGS sites, capabilities and technology upgrades, including systems and network engineering, configuration management, integrated scheduling and site support. Work under this contract will be conducted at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts, and at additional sites in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

DCGS is a worldwide, distributed, network-centric, system-of-systems architecture for conducting collaborative intelligence operations. DCGS provides both physical and electronic distribution of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data, processes, and systems. General Dynamics is supporting the Air Force's objective to evolve the DCGS configuration, with minimal impact on ongoing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations, into a seamless, distributed system-of-systems.

This award is the sixth and final option year of the integration support contract, which was originally awarded in September 2001. The total value of the contract, including this extension, is $68.8 million. General Dynamics leads an integration team that includes SRA International; Zel Technologies, LLC; and International Telephone & Telegraph. The DCGS is produced by Raytheon.

General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems designs, develops, manufactures, integrates, operates and maintains mission systems for defense, space, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, homeland security and homeland defense customers. Headquartered in Fairfax, Va., the company specializes in ground systems; imagery processing; mission payloads; space vehicles; maritime subsurface, surface and airborne mission systems; and tasking, collection, processing, exploitation and dissemination programs for national intelligence.
