General Dynamics Claimes a Pair of Contracts

General Dynamics has won two separate valued at $118 million and $33 million, respectively.

The $118 million task order was awarded by the U.S. Navy to support Submarine modification efforts.

GD Electric Boat will continue their ongoing concept studies, engineering and design of a common missile compartment for the U.K. successor ballistic-missile submarine and the U.S. Ohio replacement submarine.

The $33 million deal was awarded for production of reactive armor tile sets for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle by the U.S. Army Contracting Command.  Work on the contract will be completed in Mississippi and is on target to be completed by November of this year.

General Dynamics’ reactive armor system is composed of tiles that fasten to the exterior of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, allowing it to better withstand direct hits from a variety of anti-armor munitions.

“Our reactive armor package is a light-weight solution that can defeat full-scale, shape-charge threats of modern, long-range anti-tank missiles, ” said Russ Klein, vice president and general manager of weapon systems for General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products. “Our team in McHenry is proud to produce reactive armor tiles that save lives and prevent severe damage to combat vehicles in Iraq.”
