Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP)

: 19 March, 2008  (Company News)
The Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems an $8.89 million contract modification to continue system integration efforts for the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP).
SEWIP is a spiral-development block upgrade program for the U.S. Navy's primary surface ship Electronic warfare and anti-ship missile defense system, AN/SLQ-32, which has been installed on naval combatants and auxiliaries since the early 1980s.

Work under this contract modification includes program management, system engineering, integration and testing in preparation for SEWIP's Block 1B

Block 1A, currently in fielding, includes an improved human machine interface, a new electronic surveillance enhancement processor and the AN/UYQ-70 display console.

Future SEWIP Block 1B upgrades will continue with the addition of integrated Specific Emitter Identification (SEI), High Gain High Sensitivity (HGHS) capabilities, and network centric and mission planning capabilities. These upgrades will significantly improve warfighter capabilities in anti- ship missile defense and ship survivability.

'As system integrator for the SEWIP program, General Dynamics is leveraging its open architecture expertise to provide cost effective upgrades that significantly improve the warfighter's capabilities,' said Michael Tweed-Kent, vice president and general manager of integrated combat systems for General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems.

Work under this award will be performed in Fairfax, Va., and is expected to be completed by October 2008. This award modifies a contract originally awarded in May 2003 to Digital Systems Resources, Inc., which was acquired by General Dynamics and became part of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems in September 2003.
