General Dynamics
: 21 March, 2008  (New Product)
General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems and the U.S. Navy have successfully integrated the mission package computing environment aboard the General Dynamics Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) 'INDEPENDENCE' under construction in Mobile, Ala.
General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, is the core mission system integrator for the General Dynamics LCS.

The mission package computing environment (MPCE), designed using the General Dynamics open computing infrastructure (OPEN CI), provides the primary
operator interface for the control and monitoring of mission package operations. The MPCE is located in the secondary integrated command and control room (ICC2).

'This milestone is a great achievement for both the Navy and General Dynamics,' said Michael Tweed-Kent, vice president and general manager of integrated combat systems for General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems.

'Successful completion of this integration paves the way for full integration of the mission packages with the General Dynamics LCS Core Mission System
scheduled for later this year.'

Mission Packages are a key feature of the LCS class of ships and are designed to fill capability gaps that have been identified in the mine counter measures (MCM), surface warfare (SUW), and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) areas in the littoral environment. Mission packages are developed independently from the seaframe and provide the LCS the ability to adapt its payload to meet dynamic mission challenges.
